Joining Fee

Joining Fees are a one time investment in the YMCA facility and are assessed to all new memberships. Joining Fees do not have to be paid again as long as memberships are kept current.

Payment Plans

  • Initial Payments: Your first payment will be a one-time joining fee and a prorated amount through your first automatic draft date.
  • Monthly Memberships: Members have the option of paying for their memberships with an automatic monthly payment from their checking account or credit/debit card.
  • Semi-Annual Memberships: Members have the option of paying for their memberships with a twice-per-year payment. This is six times the monthly rate.
  • Annual Memberships: Members have the option of paying for their memberships with a once-per-year payment. This is twelve times the monthly rate.
