Can I bring a guest? How much will that cost?
Members are encouraged to bring guests!
Generally guests are charged a Day Pass Fee.
How do I use my membership at other Y’s?
Just show them your AYCC ID Card upon entry!
It's always a good idea to contact the Y you plan on attending to confirm their participation in the Nationwide Program and which amenities and offers are included. Some Y’s may require fees for certain activities.
How do I join?
You can visit our Welcome Center in person or register online. All members are screened through state and federal Sex Offender Registries through the YMCA’s Nationwide Membership Program.
How do I cancel my membership or put it on hold?
There is no contract length for your membership, which means no termination fees, and you may cancel at any time. Please provide written documentation in person or via email no less than 7 days before your automatic payment withdrawal.
We do not issue refunds for lack of use or failure to notify.
What is the difference between a Facility Member and a Community Member?
Facility Members have registered and paid for membership, for which they receive exclusive access and discounts on programs and Personal Training.
Community Members do not pay membership fees but can still enroll in most classes and programs, including lessons and programs. General use of the facility would require the purchase of a day pass.
