YMCA Membership

Step 1: Visit the YMCA

A membership at the YMCA not only makes you healthier, it strengthens your community at the same time. At the YMCA, our focus on health and well-being helps our members find balance in their life. That’s why we’re here with you every day to make sure you, your family and community have the resources and support to help you learn, grow and thrive.

  • Visit the YMCA, take a tour and see all we have to offer. We are a comfortable community; no high pressure sales or hidden fees. We want to answer your questions and see how we can work together to improve your health and well-being.

  • There are two YMCA locations in our community; Kerasotes (west) and Downtown. We know that two is better than one. Therefore, your membership will give you access to programs and facilities at both branches. Tour both or pick the one you think you will visit most often.
