We partner with the Darebin City Council, community groups and sports associations to provide a variety of services for people of all ages.

The Darebin City Council’s vision for the Northcote Aquatic & Recreation Centre is to be a place where diversity and creativity exist and are valued; a place that is healthy, safe and sustainable; a place of vitality where people enjoy their chosen life and a place of community pride.

At the Northcote Aquatic & Recreation Centre, we aim to provide the best in community care and services.

The YMCA has enjoyed a successful partnership with the City of Darebin, managing The Northcote Aquatic & Recreation Centre on their behalf for 21 years.

As a YMCA community centre, we understand the needs of our members and visitors, and we work together with a number of other community, sports and government bodies to offer opportunities for all our participants.

Through partnerships and affiliations, we provide a wide range of services – from financial assistance to sports recovery and youth groups – that everyone can benefit from.
