Program Registration FAQs
How do I register for programs?
The Y offers online registration for most programs at register.ymcanyc.org. You may also register by phone or in-person. Some programs, such as camp and child care programs require in-person registration.
You can register online in one of three ways: If you are a returning program registration user, simply log in to your account. If you are a returning program registration user but need to re-set your password, you will activate your account to activate it. If you are new to the Y, you will create an account so you can begin to register for programs online.
When can I register for programs?
Programs are offered in eight-week sessions six times per year. Registration begins two weeks prior for members and one week prior for non-members.
How do I register a child for programs?
Minors under 18 years of age must be registered by an adult. To register your child for classes, please enter 00 in the last box of the membership number when logging in. 00 is the number associated with the adult in your child's account. During checkout you may then choose your child as the class participant.
Can I register for programs at another branch?
Yes. As a member of the YMCA of Greater New York, you will receive the member discounted rate when you register for programs at any branch.
Why didn't I receive the member discount when I registered for a class?
When you sign up for online registration, make sure to select activate my account, to connect your account to your Y membership. This will automatically apply the member discount to your registration.
Can I register for a program after the session has started?
Depending on the program, you may register for certain programs after the session start date. If registration is no longer available online, please check at the Member Services Desk.
What is the refund policy?
The refund policy varies by branch. However, in most instances a refund is only given if the Y cancels a program and program credit may only be issued in special circumstances.
Can I apply credits from my Y account when registering online?
Yes, If you have a credit in your account, it will automatically apply at the checkout process when you register for a new class at the Y.
I need help with my online account. Who can I contact?
Contact the Member Services Desk. Our membership staff would be happy to help you.
