join one, join all

With 17 convenient YMCA locations across San Diego County, when you join one Y, you join them all! Be part of a supportive community that helps bring people closer together. At every age and every level of activity, you’ll find people just like you looking to live a healthier lifestyle.

Need More Than One Y?

Membership gives you access to any Y in San Diego County. You’ll discover the convenience of being able to work out or attend classes at any Y with no additional fee per visit.

Many Ys, Join Them All

While you’re working out in one area of the county, your family can be playing or taking lessons at a Y location in another area.

Wherever You Are, We'll Be There

With the Y, you can be assured that whatever activity your family or your child engages in – child care, family time, sports camp – you’ll have a safe, positive environment to play, learn and grow.

When you register at a YMCA near you, your membership will include all the benefits at your Home branch, with access to offerings at other locations across San Diego County. See YMCA of San Diego County for a list of branches.



From time to time, we have special promotions for members and new members. See PROMOTIONS.

Round up of all facility features

Joiner's fees and bank draft

Our Joiner's Fee is used to provide major repairs and equipment replacement. This fee is payable when you join, in addition to your first month's dues.

Memberships that have expired or been canceled for more than 30 days are subject to repayment of the Joiner's Fee to renew membership. Joiner's fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Bank Draft Membership. Upon joining, payment of the first month's dues is required. With your authorization, an automatic monthly withdrawal will begin the following month of membership from either your checking or credit card account. This is an ongoing deduction that remains in effect until canceled in writing at least 10 days prior to your draft date. Payment of fees must be kept current, or membership will be subject to cancellation.
