April 14th, 2016 by

The Gallatin Valley YMCA is a place for all people, regardless of age, race, ability or financial status to engage in fun, healthy, exciting activities and opportunities. They want to give everyone, especially kids the opportunity to flourish and become happy, healthy people in order to make the community as a whole a better place to be. The YMCA’s core values are “caring, honesty, respect and responsibility guide us as we nurture youth development, healthy living and social responsibility in our community”. They provide numerous programs and camps for kids from basketball leagues to summer camps, and the Gallatin Valley YMCA offers scholarships to families that cannot afford their fees because they believe everyone deserves to grow in a productive, fun way.

YMCA Programs

The YMCA offers a variety of programs for the youth such as Out of School Camps which includes things like after school clubs where kids can meet new friends, learn new skills and have fun. PIR days are also covered in the Out of School Camps umbrella, so that you don’t have to worry about your child during those random days school is out, the YMCA has set up a safe, fun place for your child to spend the day. Some other programs the YMCA has are the Teen Camps, including Teen PIR days and Montana LEADs. Lastly, there are Early Learning programs which include Parent’s Night Out, Pocket-Sized Scientist, and Y Tumble Bugs.


The athletics department at the YMCA is “geared for fun” and wants children to explore and be excited by trying new adventures and getting healthy doing it. They offer swimming lessons, dance classes, taekwondo, a winter basketball league, a girl’s basketball clinic, wrestling, cheer leading, a spring flag football league, and more after school club fun!


The YMCA is always looking for excited, helpful individuals to get involved and give back to the community by supporting programs such as theirs.

OUR Involvement with the Y

Contributions- In 2013 we sponsored their cabaret show. In 2015 we sponsored their flag football program. Beginning in 2016, we made a large pledge commitment over a 7 year period. This contribution was to their capital campaign to build a brand new YMCA in Gallatin County. Due to our ongoing commitment to the Y and their programs, Ressler Motors has been awarded the lifetime naming rights to the locker rooms that will be built in a later phase of their building process. Ressler will also receive the naming rights to a teen/multi-generational room, which will be built in the first phase of construction.
