Y Membership

"Easy Pay" Monthly Plan

Members make a one-month down payment and with your authorization, monthly membership dues are then deducted automatically from your bank checking account or a credit card. Annual Memberships are also available.

Joining Fees

Joining fees are payable at the time of the original membership; however if a member chooses to let the membership lapse for more than 30-days after the expiration date, the joining fee will automatically be assessed as a new membership.

Membership Upgrades

If a member chooses to upgrade their membership from one type to another, a pro-rated fee of the annual or automatic draft membership will be collected including the difference in the joining fee. Please visit the Membership office during business hours to make changes to your membership.

Membership Cards

Membership cards are issued to members in good standing and are required to gain admittance to the Y. Lending membership cards to another individual may result in the termination of your Y membership privileges. Lost cards will be replaced for a $10 fee.

Membership Cancellations

In accordance with your signed Y membership agreement, automatic draft (ATS) memberships must be canceled in writing at least 10 days prior to the bank draft date assigned to you in order to cease billing for the following month. Any automatic draft membership returned for non-payment including non-sufficient funds, account closed/frozen or payment stopped will automatically be assessed a $10 processing fee. Cancellations may be done in the Membership office during regular business hours. Cancellation form can be found here.

Bring Your Friends and Family

Guest Privileges

La Jolla YMCA members are automatically able to visit any YMCA in San Diego County.

We encourage La Jolla YMCA members to introduce their friends and family to our Y by offering guest passes. Members can bring a guest to visit our Y up to two times. After the two visits we invite your guest to join our Y. Those who choose not to join the Y will be required to pay the Day-Use fee each time they visit the facility.

Guests are required to fill out and sign a Facility Use Form and waiver providing valid picture identification.
