Membership For All

We know that one size doesn’t fit all. So, we offer several categories of membership:

Membership Family membership is defined as two adults and their dependent children under 18 who live in the same household, and children under 26 residing at home or attending college (valid with school ID). College membership is defined as a full-time student under 26.

Financial Assistance At the Y, no one is turned away for inability to pay. The Y provides financial assistance to youth, families and individuals who do not have the resources to pay the full membership or program fee.

Assistance is provided for qualifying participants. Photo Identification Policy In order to access the facility and to register for programs and activities as a non-member guest, adults age 18 and over will be required to provide photo identification. Proper forms of ID may include a license, passport, state ID card, military ID or student ID.
