Nationwide Membership

You will be required to sign a nationwide membership waiver upon your first visit to a YMCA outside of the Greater Wichita YMCA association. Check www.ymca.net for participating YMCAs near your travel destination.

Member getting information about the Y from staff


Visiting participating YMCAs throughout the country just got easier. You no longer have to remember to secure an AWAY card before you go on a trip.

When you visit, check in with your name and address. The visiting YMCA will verify your current membership.

Please note: All YMCAs are locally owned and operated. If you utilize a nationwide location with great frequency, you may be asked to officially join that YMCA.

In addition, by participating in the YMCA Nationwide Membership Program, you agree to release the National Council of Young Men’s Christian Associations of the United States of America, and its independent and autonomous member associations in the United States and Puerto Rico, from claims of negligence for bodily injury or death in connection with the use of YMCA facilities, and from any liability for other claims, including loss of property, to the fullest extent of the law.
