YMCA Plas is open 7 days a week usually from 9-10pm. The site was transferred to the YMCA in April 2014 under a community asset transfer model from Cardiff Council. The YMCA took over the running of this centre in order to ensure that a valuable community resource remained open. Our programme is constantly being added too, however if you are interested in any of the classes that run at the centre, please call us on 029 2046 4463.
Current schedule includes:
Parent & Toddler and Soft play sessions- every Monday, Tuesday and Friday mornings from 10am. All welcome, £3 per parent and to 2 children
A broad range of martial arts clubs run at the centre every Monday, Tuesday , Thursday and Friday evenings (Kung Fu, Taekwondo, Karate,Ninjitsu). Please note that the YMCA does not run these clubs though can refer you to these groups.
Youth Club runs every Thursday night during term time from 5pm onwards.
From September 2017 up until May 2018, a range of adult education programmes including ESOL will be delivered 4 days a week out of our new training rooms. Please contact us for details.
We currently have general fitness classes running out the centre on Monday evenings (Zumba) and Wednesday lunchtimes (Bollywood Fitness).
We have a dance class that runs every Tuesday evening and Saturday mornings for young people as well as a Skate School that is available every Saturday morning also.
On Friday, we also host a Friendship Club from 2pm for older groups, looking for a place to meet and socialise.
We can cater for birthday parties for children on weekends and at times during the week (depending on availability of the main hall). For this, we have 2 bouncy castles, soft play provision, five a side goals and other sporting kit to make it a party to remember. We also have a kitchen available as well as a secure outdoor courtyard.
We also have 3 community rooms that can be hired for the hour or the day to help community groups meet. Our large hall and break out rooms means we can host conferences and other large events, such as engagement parties, weddings etc. Finally, we have parking on site for up to 25 cars.
Any profit that we make at YMCA Plas, is ploughed straight back into the site, in order to keep improving our facilities. Having just finished phase 1 of our development, we are busily raising funds to fund stage 2, which we hope will add more space again to the current site as well as a dedicated youth wing facility for our young people projects and the local youth community.
If you are interested in any of this or if you’re a community group looking for a hall to hire or room to meet in, or event to host, please give us a call. We would love to hear from you….
