On May 4, 2016, Yates hosted a celebration in honor of our student employees for the ending academic school year. Students and Yates staff enjoyed food and activities with a Fiesta party on Wednesday afternoon.
During the celebration, Yates Director Jim Gilroy acknowledged the fantastic work by the student employees. The student employees are truly the backbone of Yates Field House; welcoming members, answering questions, and attending to so many needs that arise throughout the day.
The celebration also recognized our students graduating from their undergraduate or graduate study at Georgetown University. We wish our graduating students all the best, and we are so honored that you made Yates Field House a part of your Georgetown experience!
The Yates graduating students of 2016 are:
Robert Van Dyke
Chandar Prabha Sharma
Congratulations Graduates, and thank you for your outstanding participation at Yates Field House!
Yates is hosting a Spinning Instructor Training on December 13 for any person interested in becoming a certified Spinning instructor. This workshop provides the tools and information needed to lead your own official Spinning classes. After completing the training, participants are eligible to take the Instructor Assessment online to receive an official instructor certification. Bring your gear and be ready for two great rides led by a Spinning Master Instructor. Workshop time (including two rides and a lunch break) is nine hours, from 9:00am to 6:00pm.
On November 7, Yates hosted another successful Wellness Fair in partnership with GUWellness. Hundreds of GU faculty and staff enjoyed the free chair massages, health screenings, promos and giveaways, and the benefits resources as well.
During the event, Yates staff featured the exciting “Wheel of Fitness” game, in which dozens of visitors tested their luck to win a Yates giveaway or face a random fitness challenge, including push ups, jump rope, and jumping jacks among others. Congratulations to the many winners, and to our other contestants – better luck next year!

As of October 1, 2014, the District extended a 5.75% Sales and Use tax which included “Health-Club Services.” Despite being an enterprise within Georgetown University, Yates Field House is unfortunately subject to the requirements of this new tax. Nearly all fees, passes and services sold at Yates will include the tax, including:
Instructional Classes & Lessons
Personal Training Packages
The mandated fee for GU student memberships is exempted from the tax.
We recognize the inconvenience that these additional fees create for our members. For your convenience, pricing sheets in the Main Office have been updated to include “with tax” prices for member rates and other services. Members using payroll deductions and “timepay” payments should notice the additional tax increase on their member charges beginning with this month. In order to prevent additional confusion, members should be aware of the following:
Pre-existing rates and charges do NOT include the 5.75% tax. The charge is added on top of previous fees.
For all check payments, please verify that the appropriate surcharge has been included in the written check.
Unless indicated otherwise, prices listed online are the “base” rate and do not include the additional 5.75% fee.
We appreciate your understanding as we all get accustomed to the additional fees.
