Improving Your West Cabarrus YMCA

West Cabarrus YMCA Traffic Pattern Changes

YMCA friends and family, we are announcing a new project that will improve your experiences here at the West Cabarrus YMCA. We are improving our traffic flow to enable children to be picked up and dropped off curbside on the passenger side of the cars. To do this, we will be changing the total flow of traffic.

Watch the message from Robert Kirk, Executive Director to learn all the details. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask Robert Kirk, Executive Director at


WC Capital Plan First Floor corrected

Note: The entire current community space in the West Cabarrus YMCA will be converted into a Youth Development Center. Relocating the current Playhouse, Youth Development Room, and Teen Center into one hub of activity allows for more opportunities for mentorship, collaborative activities and efficient staffing. The Youth Development Center will have full access to the kitchen, its own restrooms, its own entrance, a chapel and plenty of options for adjoining space to facilitate a comprehensive state-of-the-art program.
