Policies & Guidelines

The YMCA was founded on Christian principals and prohibits the inappropriate behavior and conduct. This includes, but not limited to, profanity or abusive language, attire, smoking/vaping, use of alcohol or drugs, the removal of YMCA property or criminal conduct of any type. Such inappropriate behavior is unacceptable, and the YMCA consequently retains the right to deny memberships to its applicants and to revoke a membership of any current member or participants at its sole discretion.


The purpose of welcoming guests into our facility is to evaluate the Y and to absorb how the Y is distinguished as a staple in the community. 

  • Guest must observe the samke policies and restrictions that are set for all members
  • A guest form including the Y liability waiver must be signed prior to entry
  • Daily guest fee is $10 per person per day.
  • Guest myst be 18.

We encourage individuals who require assistance while using the facility to bring their own caregiver with a Dr Note. Caregivers are required to sign a guest waiver and only enter with the member. If the caregiver wishes to use the facility on their own, they must have a valid membership.


Under Title 3 of the ADA the Y allows people with disabilities to bring in service animals onto business premises in areas where general customers are allowed!
