Adding or removing members

Dual membership includes two people in the same household--an adult and a child, or two adults. Family membership includes up to two adults and all dependents (age 26 and under) in the same household. To add people to your membership, everyone must be part of the same household. Visit Member Services to add or remove members from your membership.

Holds and cancellations

If you’d like to place a hold on your membership, or would like to cancel your membership—please visit Member Services.

You may temporarily suspend your membership—for a minimum of one month and a maximum of six consecutive months during a one-year period.  To put a hold on your membership, visit Member Services. You will need to provide a 15-day written notice in advance of your electronic funds transfer (EFT) date prior to membership being placed on hold.  A monthly fee of $10 will be paid for the duration of the hold period.  Annual memberships may be put on hold by paying the monthly fees of $10 up front.

When cancelling a membership you must provide a 15-day written notice in advance of your electronic funds transfer (EFT) date. To cancel membership, visit Member Services—cancellations are not accepted over the phone. 


You can pay for your membership with a credit/debit card, or via electronic fund transfer (EFT) from a checking account. You're automatically signed up for the next eligible draw date—either the 1st or 15th of the month. You can choose which of these dates you prefer for your monthly payment. Visit Member Services to change payment method or date.

Needs-based financial assistance for those who wish to participate in Y programs and services—from memberships to summer programs for kids—is made possible in part by generous donors and partners.

How it works

We’ll consider your annual income, the number of adults and dependents in your household, and then determine assistance to align with your individual situation. Our goal is to help everyone who qualifies for assistance. If your family gets assistance through the county or other agency, please let us know.

Health insurance reimbursement programs

If your health insurance provider participates in a reimbursement program, you can enjoy double-digit reimbursement on your monthly dues. Stop by Member Services for a complete list of participating insurance providers, and to get this set up.

The reimbursement is applied directly to membership dues on monthly electronic funds transfer (EFT) accounts. The reimbursement is dispersed as a check on annual memberships on a monthly basis. The reimbursement cannot exceed the total amount debit for membership for the month the debit is applied. There is a period of time between the completed month’s visits and the applied reimbursement.  Example:  If you work out 12 times in January, your visits are verified in February and the reimbursement is applied in March.

The number of required visits to the Y for reimbursement varies by insurance provider. Eligible for visits are counted for attendance at Minnesota and Hudson, WI YMCA locations. Only one visit per day qualifies towards the required visit counts. Cancelling YMCA membership forfeits any unapplied reimbursements.


Your membership entitles you to discounts on several YMCA programs—visit Member Services for specific discounts on programs like:
