We want to encourage members to utilize the Y as often as they can. Sometimes, it’s more convenient for members to utilize a Y in a different location when traveling, near a workplace or in another region or state.

Now, full facility/full privilege YMCA members have the flexibility to use other Y facilities throughout the U.S. at no extra charge.  Simply present your active YMCA membership card and photo ID at the Y you’re visiting, and enjoy free access.

Some restrictions and exclusions may apply.∗ It's a good idea to call ahead and ask if any exceptions apply when visiting a new location. 

Nationwide Membership Details

Nationwide Membership is valid for YMCA full facility/full privilege members only.  Program-only participants may upgrade to a full membership at their home Y Association at any time to qualify.  SilverSneakers members may use other SilverSneakers locations only.

YMCA full facility/full privilege members must use their home branch at least 50% of the time.  Program discounts do not apply when visiting outside your home Y Association.

Household memberships with five or fewer visits per month will not be held under visitation protocol review.  If members of a household split usage of membership at different Associations, the membership will continue to reside with the original Association.

YMCAs reserve the right to restrict facility or program access and other restrictions may apply.∗  Please contact the YMCA Association you plan to visit for more information.

∗The following exclusions apply (updated 7.11.16): Nationwide Membership is ineffective May 1 through September 30 at the Outer Banks Family YMCA location. Please call the YMCA Association you’d like to visit in advance to learn of any exclusions or restrictions that may apply.
