In 2008, the Mansfield Borough reached out to the YMCA to determine if there was interest in creating a Y to serve Tioga County. Thanks to their partnership and generosity, today, The Tioga County Branch YMCA is currently located in the former Mansfield Armory building. This building had been home to the National Guard for many years. Simplistic in design, the fortress like construction has kept it a viable and active building serving the community since 1938. It is currently one of only 9 facilities listed on the National Register in Tioga County.

A collaboration between the Borough of Mansfield, Covington Township, and Richmond Township have agreed to pool some limited funding to support the fledgling Y for the first five years with DCNR granting hundreds of thousands of dollars for needed renova-tions to the Armory which made it all possible.

Renovations to the Armory included new windows, a new heating system, new flooring, and renovations to the basic floor plan of the building.

The new Tioga County Branch YMCA opened in late 2010.

Additional renovations since 2012 include creating a wellness center, a new gymnasium floor, and added shower facilities.

The Tioga County Branch YMCA became a 24 hour facility in January 2021 giving our members the opportunity to work out when it was convenient for them.

If the Southern Tioga School District (STSD) is operating on a 2 hour delay or closed, the branch will not open until 8:00 am. The YMCA administrative staff will evaluate the road conditions & foreseeable weather to determine if there will be a full day closure.

If STSD dismisses early, the YMCA administrative staff will evaluate the road conditions & foreseeable weather to determine if there will be an early closure.

All Classes will be changed or canceled at the discretion of the instructor and/or administrative staff.

Updates on closures, cancelations and schedule changes will be posted to the following: Tioga County YMCA Facebook page and the following radio stations:
Big Foot 104.5
WOGA 92.9
WIGGLE 100.3
KC 101.5

24 Hour members may enter the facility with their Key Fob at their own discretion. If we close due to weather the parking lot & side walk may not be treated.
