About us

Welcome to the Hoover Y

Opened in 2011, the Hoover YMCA, was the result of a dream by former long-time YMCA President and CEO Jim Lombard. Working with Hoover city officials and business leaders, the Hoover Y opened to an energetic, and full membership base which it has sustained to this day.
