Our Commitment

At the Y, we work each day to make a meaningful difference in the life of everyone with a YMCA membership who walks through our doors. With a focus on nurturing the potential of children and teens, improving the health and wellness of individuals, and giving back to our neighbors, our cause is to strengthen the community.


Adult: Anyone over the age of 18 who is not a full-time student.

Youth to 18: We have restrictions in the fitness center for youth under 5th grade.  Students under 5th grade are not allowed to use the fitness center.

Family Memberships: A family is defined as two legally married individuals and all dependent children under the age of 19 or full-time college students under the age of 23.  Dependents must appear on the parent's tax return.
