The Waterville Area Bous Club was established in 1924 and the area YMCA in 1948. Both clubs served the needs of the Greater Waterville Area and in 1972 the Waterville Boys and Girls Club was formed. When renovations were needed for both clubs the late Harold Alfond proposed combining the two organizations under one roof to better serve the needs of the community with a 3 to 1 match. We completed this task in October 1998 housing both organizations and their programs in one building, the Alfond Youth Center.
Through this collaboration the club was able to enhance the After School Program, provide a Therapy Pool and a Six Lane Lap Pool. We created a triple gymnasium, climbing wall, and offer Lessons in Karate, Dance, and Gymnastics. To provide more programming in 2000 we added a second story to the AYC increasing its square footage to 72,000 and making us the largest club per square footage in the nation. We enhanced our teen center, added the New Balance Youth Fitness Center, the Harold Alfond Library, a Boardroom and Club Naha Karate Dojo.
We are the only club in the nation to combine the two organizations.
