MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION NOW IT’S EASIER THAN EVER TO JOIN THE Y! Membership in the Y is a special thing. Be a part of a leading nonprofit organization for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. The YMCA of Snohomish County is a membership organization and anyone can join. So, with simple monthly dues, you have no contracts or minimum stays to worry about and no sales pitches to endure. Just quality, healthy programs that your whole family can enjoy.

MEMBERSHIP TYPES FACILITY MEMBERSHIP Get full access to fitness centers at all five YMCAs in Snohomish County with a Facility Membership. Choose from a wide menu of free group exercise classes, enjoy lap and recreational swimming, and receive a free wellness orientation when you join. And as a facility member, you’ll be eligible for priority registration and reduced fees on specialty classes and programs for your whole family. PROGRAM MEMBERSHIP If you’re not already a Y Facility Member and want to participate in programs like summer camps, youth sports, swimming lessons and child care, you’ll need an annual Program Membership. You’ll receive the same great level of quality and caring for which the Y is known, but without access to wellness centers and other amenities offered through a full Facility Membership. COMMUNITY MEMBERSHIP Belonging is a philosophy at the heart of the Y. Everyone in the community is considered a free Community Member and is welcome to participate in key community events and programs such as fun runs, health fairs, and community education. NATIONWIDE MEMBERSHIP Nationwide Membership enables Y members to visit any participating YMCA in the United States. It is valid for active, full facility members. Nationwide members must visit their home Y at least 50% of the time. Program-only participants are not eligible for Nationwide membership. To find a Y in another location, visit ymca.net. CORPORATE MEMBERSHIP As part of the YMCA’s corporate membership plan, employees will enjoy the benefits of belonging to Snohomish County’s largest and most respected health, wellness, and human service organization.

ACCESS FOR ALL We believe everyone deserves a Y experience, so the YMCA of Snohomish County offers membership and program pricing based on gross household income. It is our desire to help and remove barriers to participation. Simple verification of your household income (using paycheck stubs and tax return information) allows us to find a six-month renewable membership that matches your needs without playing the waiting game. If you can bring in your household income documentation when you come in to join, the application process can be very quick.

GENERAL INFORMATION OUR MISSION To inspire, nurture, and strengthen culturally vibrant communities through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. MEMBERSHIP CARD Your membership card is valuable and important. A valid membership card or photo ID is required every time you enter the Y. If you lose your card, you can get a replacement for a small fee. You can also use the mobile app as a way to access the facility, just link the app to your membership card! GUESTS Your membership includes unlimited guest passes per year. Each pass is good for one redemption at any branch of the YMCA of Snohomish County, and admits one person or one family to join you at the Y. At busy times, the Y reserves the right to limit guest usage. All guests must present photo identification and adhere to facility guidelines. A guest may use Y facilities up to three times in one calendar year with a member. Thereafter, a day pass or membership must be purchased. ACCESS FOR ALL With a focus on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, the Y nurtures the potential of every youth and teen, improves the nation’s health and well-being, and provides opportunities to give back and support our neighbors. The Y offers affordable membership and program pricing based on income to individuals and families to ensure equitable access. Anyone is eligible to apply for Y Access For All. Because our assistance is income-based, we ask that you speak with a staff member at your YMCA’s Welcome Center or, if you would prefer a more private setting, make an appointment with your YMCA’s Access For All administrator. PAYMENT OPTIONS Bank draft and credit card payments are a convenient way to pay membership fees and ensure your membership is current. New membership activation requires a one-month payment of membership dues and pro-rated monthly fees at time of enrollment as well as banking account information or a credit card. If your banking or credit card information changes, please let us know at least 15 days before your draft, or you may be charged a $30 NSF fee for nonpayment.
