Lockers are provided for your convenience at all YMCA of Greater Cincinnati locations. Lockers are for day use by members and guests. It is important to secure your personal belongings by bringing your own lock and removing it at the end of each visit. Items cannot be left overnight unless you have rented the locker. Check with your local YMCA branch to see if locker rentals are available. We recommend that you not bring valuables into the facility; the Y is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
