Y’s Archery in Schools (Invercargill)

This gives children a chance to participate in an alternative sport with specially designed equipment that ensures everyone can enjoy a measure of success.


Climb at the Y

Our Climbing Wall has over 40 routes across 9 ropes – with a relaxed atmosphere.

In the main arena we have created a climbing area to challenge all ages and abilities with top roping or lead climbing options. With a separate bouldering space offering numerous set problems, we cater for all styles of climbing!

We have:

  • An inclusive atmosphere, whether you’re a beginner or a pro
  • Great staff who love climbing are there to provide a safe and quality experience
  • Over 40 routes on vertical faces and overhanging walls with new routes set each regularly
  • Top rope climbing and lead climbing facilities

Boulder/Training Room

  • Wide range of boulder problems
  • Harness provided
  • Shoe hire available

Available as part of a gym membership with the YMCA gym.

We are keen to get people climbing! It is a great idea for birthday parties or social functions and it is great value for money.

To use the climbing wall unsupervised you MUST have a current YMCA belay license and be over 15 years old.

Group bookings available: The YMCA will supply all gear and an instructor at the hirer’s request.

Gym Hours

Monday to Thursday: 5:30am to 8:30pm

Friday: 5:30am to 8:00pm

Saturday and Sunday: 8:00am to 4:00pm

The YMCA Gym is a community facility and our focus is on providing a space where everyone feels welcome and safe. We hold strongly to the view that it is important that we have staff available at all times when the gym is open – this isn’t possible for us 24 hours a day. We have tailored our hours to best meet our communities needs.

Week Trial

A healthy lifestyle is a commitment and different gyms suit different people better. That is why we offer a 7-day pass to the YMCA for $15 so you can try out the facilities and see if you feel comfortable before you fully commit to training at our gym.

Come see us at the Recreation Centre and we will get you sorted today!
