  What Made You Join the Y?

We know firsthand how difficult it can be to find balance in life. That's why the Y is here to help you every day, making sure that you, your family and your community have the resources and support needed to learn, grow and thrive. With the Y, you're not just a member of a facility; you're part of a cause, with a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, improving health and well-being, and giving back and supporting our neighbors. At the Y, you'll find a community with an everyday mission to help you achieve a balance of spirit, mind and body.

Membership Options

At the Y, we know that one size doesn't fit all. That goes for Y memberships too. To help meet the varying needs of our members and our community, we offer several categories of membership at each of our 20 locations. We also offer a city wide membership which gives access to all locations.

  • Adult (18-64 years of age)
  • Family 2 (2 adults and dependent children under 18)
  • Family 1 (1 adult and dependent children under 18)
  • Student (12+ credits per semester)
  • Senior (65+ years of age)
  • Youth (through 11 years of age)

Joiner's Fee: Applies to all new joins or re-joins.

Payment Options

We've made it easy for you to pay for your membership by giving you options. Most of our members choose to pay for their membership through a convenient monthly charge to their credit or debit card or via checking or savings account draft. Payments for annual membership are accepted as well.
