Membership Reciprocity Program

- YMCA members must use their home family center at least 50% of the time.
- Program discounts do not apply.

As a member of the YMCA of Central Virginia, you have access to YMCAs across the state of Virginia at no extra charge through the YMCA Reciprocal Membership Program. Current members can use any participating YMCA in Virginia at no charge when they show their membership card and photo ID. Some restrictions may apply. Please contact the local YMCA for their specific policy.

The YMCA Reciprocal Membership Program is for YMCA members only. Program-only participants may upgrade to a YMCA membership at any time to qualify.
Is there a fee associated with participating in the YMCA Reciprocal Membership Program?
No, all YMCA of Central Virginia members may participate at no additional charge. The YMCA Reciprocal Membership Program is intended to be an added benefit and convenience for members when visiting other communities. A YMCA membership must be maintained at the YMCA association that you most frequently visit.
How often can I use a YMCA in another location of Virginia?
There is no limit to the number of visits by reciprocal members. However, YMCA members must use their home YMCA at least 50% of the time.
Are there any restrictions on what I can do at another YMCA facility outside of my association?
It is recommended that members check the website of each specific YMCA before visiting.
What do I need to bring to verify that I am a current YMCA member?
You must present your current membership card and a photo ID in order to utilize another YMCA facility. By providing both of these items, the staff at the YMCA you visit will be able to verify your current membership.

The YMCA of the Central Virginia provides financial assistance for children, teens, adults and families who cannot afford the full cost of a Y membership.
If you are looking for financial assistance for YMCA programs, we offer that too.
We use a sliding fee scale based on total household income and the number of household members. We require supporting documentation to verify household size and income, and we consider special circumstances when providing assistance.
Recipients are expected to be responsible for a percentage of the membership cost.
HOW DO I APPLY?
- Stop by any one of our three convenient locations and pick up a financial assistance packet.
- Complete the form, and attach a copy of the required financial documents.
- Return the application and required documents to any YMCA of Central Virginia location.
