You Belong At The Y


As one of the Capital District’s premier non-profit organizations the Y is a cause for strengthening our community. That’s why we’re here working with you every day, making sure that you, your family and community have the resources and support you need to learn, grow and thrive.

With a focus on developing the potential of kids, improving individual health and well-being, and giving back and supporting our neighbors, your membership will bring about meaningful change not just within yourself, but in your community too.

When you join the Y you belong to a place where:

  • Parents find a safe, positive environment for children to learn good values, social skills and behaviors.
  • Families come together to have fun and spend quality time with each other.
  • Children and teens play, learn who they are and what they can achieve, and are accepted.
  • Adults connect with friends, pursue interests and learn how to live healthier.
  • Communities thrive because neighbors support each other and give back.
  • We all build relationships that further our sense of belonging and purpose.

Join Our Community

The Capital District YMCA is so much more than a gym or pool. At the Y, we are focused on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

With your membership you not only receive access to hundreds of life-changing programs and services at the Guilderland branch, but you are also able to use any Capital District YMCA location, as well as more than 2,000 YMCAs outside of the area through our AWAY program.

FREE Babysitting While You Workout

Each YMCA membership includes unlimited guest passes. Each guest you bring can visit us up to three times for free. After three free visits, guests will be encouraged to join the Y. Returning guests will have the option to continue to visit for $10 (each visit). In case of an emergency and for the security of our members, we ask all guests to provide a valid photo ID when visiting. Guests will be asked to compete a guest waiver the first time they visit our facility. Guests younger than 12 years need to be supervised by an adult 19 years or older.

30-Day Guarantee

Your complete satisfaction is our goal at the Capital District YMCA. Toward that end, we’re pleased to offer a 30-day satisfaction guarantee when you join. If you’re unhappy with your membership, please let us know and we’ll gladly refund your money, including the joiner’s fee.

Family Plus Option

We understand that the family dynamic for many of our families is changing. Our Family Plus membership gives you the option to add up to two additional adults residing in your household to your family membership at a cost of only $30 a month for each adult. We appreciate the changing family dynamic, with grandparents and adult children making up today’s family unit, and want your family membership to reflect your family.
