Join the Y

tHE y IS oPEN tO aLL

The Y makes accessible the support and opportunities that empower people and communities to learn, grow and thrive. With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y nurtures the potential of every youth and teen, improves the nation’s health and well-being, and provides opportunities to give back and support neighbors.

TO FIND YOUR RATE AND JOIN ONLINE, begin by selecting the YMCA location nearest you:


At the Y, we encourage our members to live their healthiest and to visit the YMCA as often as possible. Sometimes it’s more convenient to use a Y in another location when traveling, while at work, or just visiting another region. Now your YMCA membership is statewide in Virginia and North Carolina.

As a valued YMCA member, you have the flexibility to visit and use other YMCAs throughout the States of Virginia and North Carolina at no extra charge. Simply present your YMCA membership card and photo ID at participating Virginia and North Carolina YMCAs and enjoy complimentary access.
