Youth Development

All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of caring adults who believe in their potential. We see every interaction with young people as an opportunity for learning and development—all grounded in the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

Member Benefit Programs

We’re passionate about helping everyone pursue a healthy lifestyle in spirit, mind and body. YMCA Facility Members get to take advantage of free and reduced rates on programs and services to help them do just that. Check out all the benefits of membership on the membership page.

Community Participants

We want everyone to be able to take advantage of Y programs, and registering as a Community Participant is a great way to get started. Community Participants register for programs at the Community Participant rate, and pay an annual registration fee. This allows you to participate in Y programs, but does not include access to areas like the Wellness Center, members-only classes, open swim or open gym.

How to Register for Programs

Online Registration

We’ve partnered with ACTIVE® Network to allow members to quickly and easily sign up for activities, make payments and save on special offers. Wherever you go, you can enjoy the Y with ACTIVE®. Get started here.

Phone and In Person Registration

You can always register for programs over the phone or by stopping into the Y.

Program Cancellation Policy

Participants will have program fees fully credited or refunded when classes or programs are cancelled by the YMCA. Refunds are processed within one month of cancellation. A credit toward another YMCA program is given when a participant drops a class for a medical reason. A doctor’s note is required to receive the credit and the amount will be prorated. The YMCA will not issue credits based on a participant’s inability to attend a program or class. Neither refunds nor credits will be issued when classes are cancelled due to severe weather or other conditions.
