The Superior Douglas County YMCA is really starting to get busy again.

Shawn Pagnucci, Senior Program Director, said they are nearly back to pre-COVID levels again.

And based on a member survey, they are making changes.

A big one is improving the youth programming. Pagnucci said, “COVID had kind of taken away some of what we were doing. And we are looking forward to building back up again.”

That means bringing back the play, practice, play model for youth sports. And expanding their swim lessons.

Keep an eye out for drop-in days for activities like floor hockey and pickleball and dodgeball.

Another is upgrades to the fitness center, which will start soon

“Phase 1 will be additions to the free weights area. Phase 2 will be in the summer, and that will be some of the cardio equipment. Phase 3 will be in the fall and that will be the bikes and equipment for those biking classes,” Pagnucci said.

Plus, members can check out online classes at Y 360 if they can’t make it to the building.

If you’re a member at the Duluth or Hermantown Y, you can come over and use the Superior YMCA for free. You just need to check in.

Also, you don’t have to live in Superior to be a member at the Y there.
