YMCA available for OCCC students over spring break

Students will not be able to access OCCC’s Fitness and Wellness Center during spring break, because the campus will be closed from Sunday, March 15 through Sunday, March 22. The Earlywine Park YMCA, located at 11801 S May Ave. in Oklahoma City, will be open for OCCC students, faculty and staff to use from Monday, March 16 through Saturday, March 21.

Paul Urquhart, YMCA executive director, said students will be able to do everything from swim in the pool to play basketball in the gym, he said. Most of the facility will be accessible.

“They can use our open gym, our open basketball court when it’s not scheduled for another activity. They can take aerobics classes. They can workout on our exercise equipment,” Urquhart said.

OCCC students will need to bring their school ID and sign in as students the first time, Urquhart said. They will then be given a pass for the remainder of Spring Break.

If students need childcare, Urquhart said they will work something out.

“We will need to have a form of ID for them so we can make sure that when they come to pick up the child that we’re trading off the right child,” he said.

Urquhart encourages students to visit the YMCA during the break.

“We’re happy to accommodate them during this time. We want to continue the great relationship we have with OCCC.”
