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.

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.

Joiner Fees

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 (Non-Member) Option

The Capital District YMCA is a non-profit service-focused organization committed to the health and well-being of our members.

At the Y, in addition to our full-facility membership option, we offer a community (non-member) rate. Our members enjoy full access to all our branches and group exercise programs. With the community rate option, you can sign up for a program without having to be a member. The cost for paid programs is less for members, and our group exercise classes are only open to our members

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Monthly payments are withdrawn from your checking or savings account, debit or credit card.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.

Membership Holds

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

Refund Policy

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.
