Memberships are subjected to automatic fee adjustments based on age categories at any time during the year. For more information on age categories please ask a Membership Services Representative.
Members paying memberships in full will be mailed a renewal reminder notice. Continuous members continue to roll over unless you come into the YMCA to cancel the membership. Please remember to inform us of changes to your personal information so these notices reach you.
Changes to your account information can be done at any time. Please notify us of any changes in phone number, address or email address to ensure we are able to notify you regarding your membership.
