Nationwide Membership enables you to visit any participating YMCA in the United States through membership at your home YMCA. 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. 


Nationwide Membership enables Y members to visit any participating YMCA in the United States

  • Valid for active, full facility YMCA members 

  • Nationwide member visitors must use their home Y at least 50% of the time. If not, we will ask the member to transfer the membership to the participating Y that is most used.

  • Program-only participants are not eligible for nationwide membership 

  • Special memberships (group homes, other agencies, etc.) are not eligible


“By participating in the YMCA Nationwide Membership Program, I agree to release the National Council of Young Men’s Christian Associations of the United States of America, and its independent and autonomous member associations in the United States and Puerto Rico, from claims of negligence for bodily injury or death in connection with the use of YMCA facilities, and from any liability for other claims, including loss of property, to the fullest extent of the law.”

Joining is easy:
