The YCHS weight room has undergone a complete overhaul since 2008.  The goal of the renovation was to create one of the top high school strength training facilities in the York area.  Through generous donations, a grant from the Bob Hoffman Foundation, and our students’ hard work at the 2008 YC Lift-a-Thon, our goal is achieved.
