A fee of $60.00 for Adult & Family memberships and $25.00 for Youth & Young Adult memberships is required. The fee is a non-refundable, one-time entry fee that is charged to all new SWC YMCA memberships or memberships that have lapsed more than 30 days.

Memberships are on a monthly basis or may be paid in full for the year.

* Membership rate adjustments may occur annually with a 30 day notice.

Monthly drafts for memberships are continuous unless cancelled. (see below for cancellation process)

Monthly Bank or Credit Card Draft – The YMCA will draft your checking, savings, or credit card (MasterCard or Visa) account on the fifth day of each month. A voided check or credit card information, your membership application plus one month payment and joiner fee are required to activate membership. Monthly bank or credit card memberships continue indefinitely.
Annual Payment – You can pay in full by credit card, personal check or cash.

To cancel a membership, notification needs to be given to member services by the 25th of the month, prior to your next draft.

If notice is given after the 25th, the next month’s membership fee will be taken out.

A photo ID is required. If you lose your card, a $3.00 replacement fee will be charged. Members are required to scan their cards each time they visit the YMCA. Scanning cards means better security and service to our members.

Being fit and healthy makes you feel better; employees who have a higher self-esteem are happier, more productive and come to work more regularly.
