Membership at the Y is a continuous month-to-month membership. The cancellation policy requires notification by phone, email, or in-person before the last day of the month in which you would like to cancel the membership. Please inquire with Member Engagement for further information.
Monthly rates are based upon participation in automatic billing (EFT Bank Draft). To establish a monthly membership we need authorization to bill your checking / savings account or credit card.
There is a $10 per month additional fee for a one-month membership when not signing up for automatic payments. We do not accept cash payments. You can make payments with a credit/debit card or a check.
The joining fee is a one-time fee unless a membership lapses. Joining fee will be applied to any membership that has been inactive for more than 60 days.

All the details!
The Y is a membership organization. Therefore, personal information is collected and a photo is taken of each member. This information is maintained in our data base. Please scan in on every visit to the Y. If you forget your membership card, another form of identification will be required. For safety and security reasons, you must check in with a Member Engagement staff person before using the facilities.
It is the member or participant’s responsibility to provide his or her own accident and health insurance. The Y does not provide any such coverage.
ACCIDENTS & INCIDENTS
Immediately notify a staff member if there is an accident, injury, or unusual incident. We are happy to assist and provide first aid supplies and attention as necessary. Please cooperate if asked to complete an accident/incident form.

The YMCA conducts regular sex offender screenings on all members, participants, and guests. If a sex offender match occurs, the YMCA reserves the right to cancel membership, end program participation, and remove visitation access.

Lost and found items are kept for a limited amount of time, and are stored at the Member Engagement desk. The Y is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
