For Your Safety
Your membership card is non-transferable. Members sharing cards with others may have their membership terminated.
YMCA Policy prohibits sex offenders from accessing YMCA facilities. In order to ensure the safety of our children, we regularly compare our membership database to the National Registry of Convicted Sex Offenders and terminate the membership and/or access rights of anyone registered
Upon entering our facilities, any visitor 16 and older, will be required to present a valid government issued ID, which will be scanned into the system. This information is compared to the national database of registered sexual offenders. Once cleared, the individual may enter the facility.
Acceptable forms of identification include:
- State Driver’s license/State Photo ID card
- Resident Alien ID card
- Military ID
- Passport ID card
- Mexican Consulate card
It is important to note that out system only exports the individual’s name, date of birth and photo for comparison against the national database. No additional visitor data from the driver’s license is gathered nor is the system connected to any other system such as the Department of Motor Vehicles.

Nationwide Y Membership
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

- All Ys reserve the right to restrict or revoke these privileges
- Registered sex offenders are prohibited from participating
