We’re a community. Here, surrounded by friends as well as by caring, knowledgeable staff, you can grow your spirit, mind and body in ways you never imagined. But since that’s a little hard to quantify, here are some other benefits to being a Y member:

Nationwide Membership offers Flexibility & Convenience of the Y, no matter where you are!

Traveling, working in another region, exploring … sometimes, it’s just more convenient to use a Y in a different location. Now, our YMCA members have the flexibility to use other participating Y facilities throughout the nation, at no extra charge.

Nationwide Membership enables Y members to visit any participating YMCA in the United States through membership at their “home” YMCA (The home Y is the local association that enrolls members and collects membership dues). A complete list of participating Ys is available by visiting www.ymca.net

Part of the process for participating in Nationwide Membership involves all members signing an updated liability waiver that includes the language below. You will be given that waiver upon visiting your new Y.

“By participating in the YMCA Nationwide Membership Program, I agree to release the National Council of Young Men’s Christian Associations of the United States of America, and its independent autonomous member associations in the United States and Puerto Rico, from claims of negligence for bodily injury or death in connection with the use of YMCA facilities, and from any liability for other claims, including loss of property, to the fullest extent of the law.”
