With a Y membership, you have endless possibilities!

You can visit our seven local YMCA branches in Guilford and Rockingham counties as well as Ys nationwide. Free group exercise classes and a virtual On-Demand streaming service through YMCA 360 are included in your membership. As a member, you will also receive discounts on all youth programming including youth sports, afterschool, summer camp and more, plus discounts on specialized programming.

Financial assistance is available for memberships and programs. 

What are the different membership types and prices?

Membership types and prices vary based on the number of adults and children on a membership. Please visit our Membership Calculator page to calculate what your membership rate would be. 

Please keep in mind that the Y offers financial assistance for memberships and programs. 

Is there a contract for my membership?

No, you don’t have a contract with your membership. Your membership is continuous until you tell us to cancel it. There is a 15-day written notice requirement for cancellation. If you choose to pay for the year in full, you are locked in for the year.

Can I get financial assistance with my membership and programs?

We do provide financial assistance for both membership and programs. Please see the Financial Assistance page for more information.

How do I upgrade or downgrade my membership?

To make changes to the type of membership you have, please stop by the front desk at your local branch.

How do I cancel my membership?

To cancel your membership, you would need to cancel your membership in writing at least 15 days before your next draft. You can do so by stopping at your local YMCA branch's front desk or filling out the cancellation form.

Can I use other YMCAs in the state or throughout the US with my membership?

Your YMCA membership is valid at all YMCA locations in Guilford and Rockingham counties as well as YMCAs across the nation. You can live a healthy lifestyle wherever you may travel!

Don't forget, you can also take the Y with you with YMCA 360 — included with your Y membership! 

Can I try the Y first before joining?

If you would like to try the YMCA, you can purchase a day pass. If you decide to join within 7 days of the issued day pass, we will apply the amount paid for the guest day pass to your membership fee.

Do I need to schedule a tour of the YMCA to join?

You can certainly schedule a time to visit the YMCA, however, it is not required. To schedule a tour, please fill out this facility tour form. We can provide you with a tour anytime during our open hours. No appointment is required.

Can I bring a guest to the YMCA?
  • Members ages 13 and older will have access to free guest passes. Each member may bring one (1) individual per visit. Each guest may visit any YMCA of Greensboro for free only once. When guests have used their free visit, they must either join the YMCA or buy additional day passes. Members must remain in the facility for the duration of the guest's visit.
  • Day passes may be purchased for $15/Adult, $10/Teen, $5/Youth.
  • Members from other YMCAs may use our facility after their membership has been verified by their home YMCA.
  • Availability and guest access hours vary by location. Please contact the Y location you would like to visit prior to visiting.
  • Guest must complete a waiver form.
Do you perform routine sex offender screenings?

Yes, you and your loved ones’ safety is our top priority. Our membership base is continuously run through the national sex offender registry.
