Nationwide Membership

Nationwide Membership enables you to visit any participating YMCA in the United States through membership at your “home” YMCA (your home Y is the local association that enrolled you as a member and collects your membership dues). We offer this because we want to help you reach your health and wellness goals wherever you live, work or travel. This is an essential part of our mission to strengthen communities.

We understand that sometimes it is more convenient for members to take advantage of a Y near their workplace or when they are traveling outside the area of their home Y. With Nationwide Membership, members have the flexibility to use participating Y facilities throughout the United States at no extra charge.

• Nationwide Membership is valid for active, full facility YMCA members whose home
Y participates without restriction or blackout periods
• Nationwide member visitors must use their home Y at least 50% of the time
• Program-only participants (including
Silver Sneakers, Silver and Fit or other
like programs) are not eligible for nationwide membership
• Special memberships established by any Y for group homes, other agencies, etc., are not eligible
• When visiting a Y, nationwide members will be required to show a valid YMCA membership card and photo ID as well as provide basic membership data such as name and email address
• Members will need to sign a universal liability waiver and privacy policy
• Ys should allow nationwide members access to services typically offered to full-facility members. Check with the Y for schedule and availability. Nationwide members visiting other Ys for a period greater than 28 days must transfer membership affiliation for continued use
• All Ys reserve the right to restrict or revoke these privileges
• Registered sex offenders are prohibited from participating

New York State Reciprocal Membership Program

Now, you can use your Y membership at other YMCAs in New York State.

  • The New York State Reciprocal Membership Program includes use of the standard YMCA facilities, typically swimming pools, gymnasiums, racquetball courts and wellness centers.
  • Reciprocal Membership is available to all full facility YMCA members.
  • Your local YMCA is considered your “home” YMCA.
  • Visiting members must check-in at each YMCA with a valid membership card and present a photo ID.
