NC Reciprocity/AWAY Program

My Y is now EVERY Y in North Carolina & Virginia!

Your Y just got a whole lot bigger!  We want to encourage members to utilize the Y as often as they can. Sometimes, it’s more convenient for members to utilize a Y in a different location when traveling, near a workplace or in another region.

Now, full facility/full privilege YMCA members have the flexibility to use other Y facilities throughout North Carolina and Virginia at no extra charge.  Simply present your active YMCA membership card and photo ID at the Y you’re visiting and enjoy free access.  The Reciprocal Membership Program is valid for YMCA full facility/full privilege members only.  Silver Sneakers members may use other Silver Sneakers locations only. Silver and Fit members are not eligible for reciprocity.  Some other restrictions and exclusions may apply.

YMCA full facility/full privilege members must use their home branch at least 50% of the time. Program discounts do not apply. Participating YMCAs reserve the right to restrict facility or program access. We suggest checking each Y’s website before visiting to become familiar with their policies and restrictions.

If you are visiting from another North Carolina or Virginia Y:

If you are a reciprocal member planning to visit our Y,  please be sure to bring your MEMBERSHIP CARD and PHOTO ID. At your first visit you will need to fill out some basic information and sign a liability waiver.

At this time, we do not have any restrictions for reciprocal members… you have full access to our facility. We do reserve the right to add restrictions at any time. If registering for a program at our Y, reciprocal members will be registered as non-members.

If you have any questions about the Reciprocal Membership Program, please contact Anna Flippen, Membership Coordinator at 249-2177 or aflippen@lexingtonymca.com.

 

AWAY Program

The AWAY (Always Welcome At YMCAs) program means you may use your YMCA membership at more than 2,400 participating YMCA’s across the country. Because each YMCA is a separate non-profit organization, policies vary on the use of facilities, equipment, services, and programs by out-of-town YMCA members. Depending on the participating Y’s AWAY policy, you may use the facility either for free or for a small charge.

Members of other YMCA’s who visit the J. Smith Young YMCA will be charged $5.00 per visit (except for NC or VA YMCA members). Visiting members are required to bring their YMCA membership card with them at each visit and may not bring guests. All NC YMCA members have the flexibility to use other Y facilities throughout the state of North Carolina at no extra charge.  The Reciprocal Membership Program is valid for YMCA full facility/full privilege members only.  Silver Sneakers members may use other Silver Sneakers locations only. Silver and Fit members are not eligible for reciprocity.

If you plan on visiting another YMCA, we advise you to call that YMCA about their policies on visiting members.  For a list of YMCA’s, please visit http://www.ymca.net/find-your-y/.
