Adult children are covered on a Family Membership, thru age 22, with valid full-time student ID.
A $25 joiner’s fee is charged for our Youth Memberships. For all other membership categories, a $50 joiner’s fee is charged. A joiner fee is also required for all memberships lapsed more than 60 days.
Y members are welcome to use all of our branches. Please join the branch you will use most often.
We Offer Financial Assistance
At the Capital District YMCA, we welcome individuals from all socioeconomic backgrounds and never turn you away because you cannot afford our membership, programs, or services. To help those with financial need, we have our Annual Giving Campaign scholarship program which is funded by caring members of our community. For more information, please ask to speak with our Membership Sales Director.
Unlimited Guest Passes
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 $15 (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.
Our Youth Membership includes a joiner’s fee of $25. For other memberships, the joiner’s fee is $100.
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.
Community Rate Option
The Capital District YMCA is a nonprofit service-focused organization committed to the health and well-being or our members.
At the Y, in addition to our full-facility membership option, we offer a community rate. Full-facility members enjoy access to all our branches and group exercise programs. With the community rate option, you can enroll in any of our programs without having to pay a non-member fee. You simply pay the community rate for each program you take, except for group exercise classes, which are a benefit of being a full-facility member.
It’s our hope that once you try any of our programs, and become familiar with what the Y is all about, you’ll want to become a full-facility member.
Convenient Methods of Payment
Automatic Withdrawal / Safe and Convenient
Monthly payments are withdrawn from your checking or savings account, debit or credit card. The joiner’s fee and pro-rated cost for your first month of membership are due when you join. There is no contract to join, and we will stop your monthly payments (with 30 days notice) once we receive your written request.
Annual / Semi-Annual / Quarterly Payment Options
Dues may be paid in full when you join and then paid annually, semi-annually, or quarterly. We accept cash, check, or credit card. When you pay for a full year, the amount you owe includes the pro-rated cost for the current month, and the joiner’s fee.
You’re welcome to put your membership on hold for medical reasons. Please provide a note from your doctor letting us know why you’re not able to participate in Y activities. Please submit your request in writing 30 days before your leave of absence. Your membership is automatically re-activated once your hold expires.
Our programs and services are reserved for our active members. When a membership is placed on hold, that membership becomes inactive and is not eligible for programs, including registration for childcare
Refunds and credits need to be approved by our Executive Director. Please provide your request in writing. Refunds and credits aren’t issued once you attend two or more classes unless you have a medical reason. Please provide a note from your doctor. Credits are good for one year and are valid at any branch. If we have to cancel a program, we will gladly provide a refund.
Please consider helping us with our youth and family programs, as a coach, swim instructor, camp leader, or with our Annual Campaign scholarship program. Though not paid in dollars and cents, you’ll be richly compensated with the satisfaction you enjoy helping others. Please ask for more information today.
