Your YMCA membership can be used at any other New England YMCA facility with no additional cost. Just bring your active membership card. Have to travel to Boston? Visiting your cousin in Bangor? Bring your running shoes. We are committed to helping you stay active and healthy by making sure you can use the YMCA when you’re not at home.
Who Is Eligible To Participate In The New England Membership Reciprocity Program?
The program is for full facility/full privilege YMCA members whose home Y is located in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, or Connecticut.
Does It Cost Extra To Participate In This Program?
No, all full facility/full privilege members may participate at no additional charge. The reciprocity program is intended to be an added benefit and convenience for members when visiting other communities. You need to maintain a full facility/full privilege membership at the Y you visit most frequently.
What Is Included In This Benefit?
The My Y is Every Y program includes facility access and use only. At the Bath Area Family YMCA in Bath and Brunswick, this extends to the fitness center and pool. Programs such as Youth Sports, Swim Lessons, ChildWatch, and some Adult Fitness classes are not included and require a non-member fee.
How Often Can I Use One Of These YMCAs? Are There Any Restrictions On What I Can Do At a Particular YMCA?
Many YMCAs have no limit on the number of visits by reciprocal members. Others have instituted a maximum number of visits per month. Some Ys, such as the YMCA of Martha’s Vineyard, have seasonal blackout periods. A small group of Ys have restrictions based on their business needs (i.e. usage at particular times of day due to parking issues). We recommend members check the individual Y’s website before visiting. See ymca.net for a complete listing of all YMCAs.
What Do I Need To Bring To Verify That I Am A Current Y Member?
You must bring your current Y membership card and a photo ID (i.e. driver’s license) in order to utilize another YMCA. By providing both of these items the staff at the visiting Y will be able to verify your current Y membership.
