When members join the Y, they are joining a cause-driven, mission-driven organization that is so much more than a gym. The Y is a place for the entire community to come together to make new friendships and deepen our connections within the community that we live. The Y is a place where kids can learn to swim, have a safe place to go after school and learn a new sport. By joining the Y, you join in the cause of strengthening the foundations of society because the Y is the place where the entire community can come together regardless of income or social barriers, the Y is here for everyone.

The membership special runs throughout the month of September. For more information on the membership special, please go to
