YMCA General Age Requirements
The YMCA’s age requirements have been developed with safety and the core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility in mind.
The Y is a place for everyone…this especially includes kids. As such, the YMCA reserves the right to make adjustments as needed and to determine what “responsible” behaviors are for supervisors of young children. For example, it would not be responsible to allow young children unsupervised access to a fitness area (such as an area with treadmills or other equipment).
- Children must be at least 10 years old and older to be in the building without the direct supervision of a parent or a responsible person of at least 14 years of age. Children must be 12 years or older to use the YMCA at Mercy Health Plaza.
- Children ages 6 – 9 must either be under the direct supervision of a parent or a responsible person of at least 14 years of age OR be enrolled and participating in a YMCA program at that time.
- Guests and those under the age of 18 not admitted to the pool and fitness area Monday – Friday, 11:30 a.m. -1:00 p.m. at the Helen G Nassif YMCA only.
- Children ages 5 years and younger must be accompanied by and constantly supervised by an adult of at least 18 years of age OR be enrolled in and participating in a YMCA program.

ALWAYS WELCOME IN EVERY COMMUNITY
Things to Know Before You Go:
As a Nationwide Member, you now have the added value of visiting YMCAs across the United States and Puerto Rico. There are a few guidelines to know and follow when you travel:
• Visit ymca.net before you travel to make sure the Y you intend to visit participates in Nationwide Membership. More than 2,500 Y locations participate.
• You must have an active membership to be eligible for Nationwide Membership.
• On average, at least 50% of your visits must be to your Home YMCA (the local association that enrolled you and collects your membership dues).
• If you have known periods of seasonal travel (when you will not be using your Home Y at least 50% of the time or will be a resident of another area for more than 28 days), you will need to place your Home Y membership on hold or cancel it, and join the Y where you will be living for that time period. Please plan
ahead, as it may take several weeks to place your account on hold.
• If you are a college student, you will need to join the YMCA where your usage is 50% or greater. Nationwide Membership is based on individual usage not the family unit. Most Ys have a young adult or college membership option or you can ask about the financial assistance program.
• Most YMCAs require a photo ID for all visitors. Please bring a photo ID with you for a seamless customer experience.
• You will be asked to sign a waiver when visiting other YMCA locations.
We offer Nationwide Membership because we want to help you reach your health and wellness goals wherever you live, work or travel. This is an essential part of our cause of strengthening communities.
We look forward to your visit and hope you enjoy being part of more YMCA communities.
