Our pool closes during lightning and thunder.  In the instance of visible cloud to ground lightning, or radar indicated lightning within 6-8 miles of the facility the Aquatic Center will stay CLOSED until 30 minutes after the last lightning is seen by qualified staff.

If lightning occurs during an outdoor program or event - activities will be suspended for 30 minutes.  Activities may resume when no lightning has been viewed for 30 minutes.  Staff will use their discression if program or event will need to be cancelled due to time or an extended period of severe weather.

In the instance of a Tornado Warning being issued, or the Tornado sirens sounding, the YMCA facility tornado shelters are the locker room areas.  If sirens are sounding everyone in the YMCA facilty will be sent to the locker rooms for the duration of the warning and severe weather event.

  • If Marshall Public Schools are DISMISSED EARLY, aerobics classes and programs will be cancelled through the end of the day.  After School Program WILL STILL BE HELD at the Y as scheduled beginning at the time schools are dismissed.  NO EVENING CHILD WATCH.
  • If Marshall Public Schools are CLOSED; we will cancel all aerobics classes and programs for the day.  After School Program will not be held on days schools are closed before school begins.  CHILD WATCH WILL BE CLOSED.

Our facility will remain open for most winter weather.  Be the first to know of any cancellations or closures by following us on Facebook, Twitter, and downloading our FREE mobile app by searching Marshall Area YMCA in your app store.  Cancellations will also be announced on Marshall radio stations and included in their online announcements.
