Join Our Community

The Y is more than a fitness center, a place to swim or play basketball. The Y is a community of people of all ages, abilities and
incomes who come together to live healthier. The Y provides programs and services that transform lives. 

The moment you decide to become a member of the Y you are already on your way to making a profound difference in your life and in the lives of others.  By becoming a member, participating as a volunteer, or contributing financially as a donor,  you are having an impact on your neighbor by way of our many mission-driven programs. 

Your membership is a monthly contribution to your overall health and wellness; it is a long-term engagement that offers you a unique opportunity to find community, to connect with your neighbors, and to support a cause you can believe in.

Your membership grants you access to our 3 branch locations in Springfield, Ridley and Lansdowne. Each have unique features, classes and programs.  A Y membership includes:

Free Custom Fitness Plan

We believe knowledge is power. Our staff will help you develop an individualized fitness plan, we educate members on the fundamentals of a healthy lifestyle, identify gaps in your current lifestyle and create a plan that elevates action and accountability. When you become a member, you receive a free fitness plan. Not only will you have access to myriad of fitness amenities, you’ll also be guided by our staff who will help you feel empowered, supported and successful.

Free Group Exercise Classes

Feel the energy in your choice of hundreds of FREE group exercise classes each week. From Advanced Step to Zumba, we have classes for all ages and ability levels to help you reach your goals and make new friends while having a blast!

Discounts and Early Registration Access

You can take advantage of valuable discounts, early registration windows and special access opportunities across all of our programs including athletics, swim team, childcare and day camp.

No Joining Fee

We do not charge a joining fee  because we believe our services (not a contract) will keep you around.

Satisfaction Guarantee

We want you to be 100% satisfied with your Y experience. If your experience does not meet your expectations, please let us know immediately – we will do everything we can to meet your expectations.

Equal Access For All Assistance Program

In these uncertain times, we make assistance available to you and your family. We don’t want anyone to be turned away and this program will help you and your family be a part of the Y. Assistance is provided based on household income and expenses. Download our  Assistance Application and/or Camp Assistance Application today and return it to your branch YMCA Front Desk. All requests are confidential. This funding is made possible due to the generosity of people who contribute to our Annual Support Campaign. You can help the Y serve the community by designating your United Way gift directly to our Donor Code #08320.

To show how much we value our community, we collectively support one another through paid memberships. A portion of every paid membership serves to sponsor people from all parts of our community, giving them access to YMCA membership that they otherwise would not be able to afford. Because of this subsidy everyone in our community may receive the incredible advantage of joining the Y.  We also participate in a national YMCA military membership program which discounts the price off membership for active military and their families.

Free ChildWatch (Babysitting)

ChildWatch has been temporarily closed due to COVID-19.

We offer complimentary ChildWatch (babysitting) services at all of our locations to make it easier for parents to get active.

Programs For All Ages

With programs like yoga, active senior exercise classes and everything in between, the Y offers a lifetime of activities for the entire family to enjoy.

Nationwide Y Membership

This member benefit has been temporarily suspended due to COVID-19.

We want you to reach your health and wellness goals wherever you live, work or travel. That’s why your membership is accepted Ys across the United States and Puerto Rico. Be sure to bring a photo ID and sign a waiver at each new Y. There are a few simple rules to keep in mind:

    • Nationwide Membership is valid for active, full facility YMCA members
    • Each month, at least 51 percent of your visits must be made to your home YMCA (the local association that collects your membership dues.) Because of that, your membership must be placed on hold if you are going to be traveling for more than 28 days and visiting other Ys.
    • In addition, college students will need to join a Y where their usage will be 50 percent or greater.
    • Nationwide member visitors MUST show a valid YMCA membership card and photo ID as well as provide basic membership data
    • Those under the age of 18 are not permitted in the facility without a parent
    • Program-only participants and special memberships are not eligible for Nationwide Membership
    • Members will need to sign a universal liability waiver and privacy policy
    • Guests/visitors are not permitted
    • Child Watch and program participation is at the discretion of the facility you are visiting. Check with the Y for their policy.
    • All Ys reserve the right to restrict or revoke these privileges
    • Registered sex offenders are prohibited from participating

Your YMCA Membership Options

ALL membership drafts will stop as of May 1, 2020.

We will suspend drafting your membership on MAY 1, 2020. We will  restart drafting your membership when we reopen.

Option 1 – Maintain your membership – Continue supporting your Y

By continuing your membership draft, you help the Y to better support and care for our limited essential staff through the continuation of medical benefits and reduced salaries so they can continue to do critical work during this time of crisis.  You will also enable the Y to fulfill required overhead costs for systems that allow us to serve you remotely, as well as pay for utilities, insurance, and professional disinfection/cleaning measures in preparation for your return. If you choose this option, you do not need to do anything but accept our heartfelt gratitude and thanks.

Option 2. Receive a credit with Y-Dollars

Continue your membership draft and we will credit your account with Y-Dollars equal to half the amount of your monthly membership fee. When we re-open, Y-Dollars can be applied to pay for membership, programs, personal services, personal training and summer camp.  (Y-Dollars Form)

Option 3. Donate to Help Sustain the Y

Help by also considering an additional donation to help sustain our YMCA during this time of crisis. Once we reopen, your donation will help us prepare to provide emergency support, financial assistance and programs to families most impacted by coronavirus through financial hardship, mental health, and community connection.  DONATE NOW

Option 4. Put your membership on HOLD

All memberships will automatically be put on hold on May 1, 2020. If you wish to put your MEMBERSHIP ON HOLD IMMEDIATELY, please email Steve Smith at Ssmith@cyedc.org and put in the subject line MEMBERSHIP HOLD. We will suspend drafting your membership until we reopen (we will automatically restart your draft when we reopen). We understand your decision and remain here for you.
