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 your home branch location in Springfield, Ridley or 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.

NEW – CYEDC Branch Reciprocity
Effective October 1, 2020 we will add a NEW BENEFIT to your membership – CYEDC Branch Reciprocity. this NEW BENEFIT will allow you to visit any CYEDC Branch (Lansdowne, Ridley, Springfield). To be eligible for this benefit, at least 51% of your Y-visits must be made to your home YMCA. Contact your home branch for more information.
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)
Our FREE Childwatch(Babysitting) services will reopen on October 17. There will be limited enrollment and reservations will be required. Please contact your home branch for more information.
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.
