2/23/2013 - Brand Transition of Competitive Sports - To assist Ys in successfully transitioning competitive sports to the new brand, YMCA of the USA (Y-USA) has compiled answers to frequently asked questions that you may integrate into your Y's communications to competitive sports team staff, volunteers and parents.


All YMCAs are expected to transition to the Y's revitalized brand by December 31, 2015. While some YMCAs will take until the deadline to transition, some YMCAs are transitioning at a much faster rate. Transition timing is at the discretion of local YMCAs as long as transition is fully complete by December 31, 2015. Completed transition means that all brand elements of a YMCA have been fully transitioned to the new brand and this includes competitive sports. YMCAs that have not successfully transitioned all brand applications in their YMCA will not pass the brand compliance audit necessary to receive a brand transition certification.

Under our master brand strategy, additional logos or marks cannot be created. All other Y program, event, initiative and team logos created and adopted over the years are considered retired and may no longer be used. The resources below have been created by the national office, in conjunction with local YMCA staff, to assist teams in maintaining their individual identities while adhering to the brand standards.
