The YMCA of Greater San Antonio is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for all members and guests. To promote safety and comfort for all when in our facility, participating in our programs or on our grounds, we ask individuals to act in a manner that upholds our guiding principles of Honesty, Responsibility, Caring and Respect at all times.

Members and guests are encouraged to be responsible for their personal comfort and safety, and to ask any person whose behavior threatens their comfort to refrain. If a member or guest feels uncomfortable in confronting the person directly, they should report the behavior to a staff person or the building supervisor on duty.

Y staff members are eager to be of assistance. Members and guests should not hesitate to notify a staff member if assistance is needed.

1. Prohibited actions specifically include:

  • Inappropriate attire. Attire must be appropriate, including swimsuits only in the pool area, and shoes, shorts and shirts in other areas of the facility. Clothing with vulgar or profane writing or language is not allowed.
  • Angry or vulgar language, including swearing, name-calling or shouting.
  • Physical contact with another person in any angry or threatening way.
  • Any demonstration of sexual activity or sexual contact with another person.
  • Harassment or intimidation by words, gestures, body language or any menacing behavior.
  • Theft or behavior that results in the destruction of property.
  • Carrying or concealing any weapons or devices or objects that may be used as weapons.

2. In order to carry out these membership policies, the Y asks that members and guests identify themselves to staff when asked.

3. All guests must be checked in; members are responsible for their guest and will be held accountable for their actions.


The Branch Executive Director will investigate all reported incidents. Suspension or termination of membership privileges may result from a determination by the Branch Executive Director if, in their discretion, a violation of the Y’s Member Code of Conduct has occurred. In the event of a member termination/suspension, the Executive Director will conduct a meeting or send a certified letter to member letting them know of their membership status. No refunds will be offered, including joining fees. If membership payment is bank draft option, the membership will be stopped immediately and if payment by invoice, the Y will offer check in the amount of remaining invoice.
