The YMCA arrived in California with the Gold Rush and the California State YMCA Committee supported many start-up Associations over the next five decades, including those in Orange County. In the 1880s, Santa Ana businessmen founded the first local YMCA to provide programs for youth to build “…a strong body, a clear mind, and an upright moral character.”
Many well-known organizations trace their roots to the YMCA and Orange County. The Boy Scouts and Campfire Girls were fostered locally by the YMCA, and Toastmasters was founded in 1924 by Ralph C. Smedley, Director of the Santa Ana YMCA. During World War II, the Santa Ana YMCA gymnasium was used by Santa Ana College and the USO. For years, the swimming pool served not only YMCA members but also the YWCA, the Crippled Children’s Relief Association, and youth from Juvenile Hall.
Today, the YMCA of Orange County is an association of people of all ages, incomes, faiths, abilities, and ethnic backgrounds. Everyone can feel comfortable and everyone belongs.

Looking for a great Christmas gift or stocking stuffer? How about a copy of “A Saint in the City: Coaching At-Risk Kids to Be Champions,” by Scott Glabb?
In A Saint in the City: Coaching At-Risk Kids to Be Champions, Glabb shares his inspiring wrestling experiences from years of coaching the boys of Santa Ana High School with little hope for success, let alone a bright future. They had no prayer of a win, but Coach Glabb roused his athletes to bravely overcome their disadvantages to raise their school from being the pariah of Southern California wrestling to one of the most respected athletic programs in California.
A Saint in the City openly describes the crime-ridden lives of athletes who didn’t even hope for more until they started wrestling and found a coach who stirred them to greatness. Through Coach Glabb’s reflections and his athletes’ own words, A Saint in the City chronicles the tribulations and triumphs of one team that wrestled for victory.”
Here is an excerpt:
“With time running out, he had to chase his man down at the center of the mat before locking up again. His opponent blocked his move, maintaining his lead with less than ten seconds left. José lunged in for a front headlock and used all his strength, calling on all his hours of training and conditioning. I watched the final second tick away as José became a national wrestling champion.
220 pages – $18.99 (paperback). Christmas special: Only $15 if you buy a signed copy directly from Coach Glabb. For a signed copy, call Glabb at 714-609-6607, or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
