Community Membership

Basic membership so that you can register for classes, but does not include use of our Wellness Center, Gymnasium, Free Weight Room, or our pools. This option is designed for those who plan limited program participation. A Full Privilege Membership is a much better value for those taking multiple programs throughout the year. If at any time during the year you decide to become a Full Privilege Member your Community Membership fee can be prorated towards your Full Privilege Membership.

Ridley High School Pool Membership

Available for YMCA Members and Ridley School District (RSD) residents interested in recreational and lap swimming. There is unlimited swimming during any of our posted open swim hours. An RSD or Full Privilege Membership required for entrance. An RSD membership is not valid at the Y.
