Welcome to the YMCA!

We love our members, and we want you to be one of them!  With NO CONTRACTS, and financial assistance available for anyone who qualifies, we welcome everyone – regardless of your age, background, ability or income.

New! Teen Summer Membership

This summer, teens ages 12 – 18 can get a FREE YMCA membership through August 31, 2016.  Enjoy group exercise classes, open swim, open gym and wellness center activities!  Memberships last through August 31.   Contact or visit your local YMCA to learn more or to register.

Membership Types

We offer a few options for membership.  First, choose who you would like on your membership.  Then, choose which type of membership suits your needs.

Who is on my membership?

Our Family Membership is by far our most popular option!  Pay one low monthly rate for everyone in our family to have access to the YMCA!  While families vary, we define “family” as any two adults residing in the same household, and their legal dependents.

Our Adult Membership has a lower monthly rate than our Family Membership and allows one individual to have access to the YMCA.

Our Youth Membership is for youth age 12 – 17 and also has a lower monthly rate.  An adult name must be listed on the account as the primary contact/member, but only the youth will have access.

Our Student Membership is available for college students enrolled full-time, and is available as a Branch-Only membership.  Student membership is not available online, and must be completed in the branch.  Please visit any of our locations to find out more.

Which type suits me best?

Our Metro Membership allows members access to all 16 facilities in the Richmond area.  This includes all group exercise and water fitness classes, child watch, gymnasiums, indoor pools, and more.  Pay one monthly rate and get the best of every branch!

Our Branch-Only Membership is designed for those who live farther from the city of Richmond, and only have access to one branch.  The Branch-Only membership is available at the Powhatan, Goochland, Petersburg, Northside and Chickahominy locations.

Financial Assistance

No matter what type of membership you choose, we offer financial assistance to everyone who qualifies.  Using our Income-Based Rate Scale, your monthly rate may be reduced based on your annual income.  Financial Assistance is available for individuals earning less than $60,000 per household per year and families earning less than $75,000 per household per year.

Financial Assistance rates are not available online.  Download our Financial Assistance Worksheet to discover what you should bring to any of our locations.
