Join Our Community

The Y is more than a fitness center, a place to swim, or somewhere to 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, connect with your neighbors, and support a cause you can believe in.

Your membership grants you access to your home branch location in Springfield, Ridley, or Lansdowne. Each has unique features, classes, and programs.  A Y membership includes:

No Joining Fees

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

CYEDC Branch Reciprocity

CYEDC Branch Reciprocity will allow you to visit any CYEDC Branch (Lansdowne, Ridley, Springfield). Members are expected to purchase a membership at the branch they intend to use most of the time.  Periodically we will check attendance and we reserve the right to transfer a membership if a member violates the policy. The Y will notify the member in advance of the transfer. Please visit your home YMCA for more information about this policy.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

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.

Free Child Watch (Babysitting)

Our Child Watch (Babysitting) service is operating on a limited basis. Please check your home branch for more specific details.

Free Equipment Orientation

Come in for a Tour

Stop by any time for a tour. You will need to present a photo-id.

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. Complete the  Assistance Application and/or Camp Assistance Application online today. 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.
