Your membership makes a difference in our community
YMCA membership allows unlimited access to all 4 branches. Your membership also includes access to Ys across the U.S. who participate in the Nationwide Membership Program.
Corporate Memberships: Corporate Memberships are available for local corporations, organizations and businesses. If you are interested in setting up a corporate membership for your business, please contact your branch Membership Director for more information.
Y Members enjoy a wide variety of Group Fitness options included in their membership. Whether you are looking for therapeutic movement, mind-body or high intensity, we have something for everyone! Additionally, some specialty classes are available at select branches for a small additional fee. Check out our group fitness schedules to see everything we have to offer.
The Rappahannock Area YMCA’s programming is driven by our mission to create opportunities for all in our community to live, grow, and thrive. We have an expansive catalog of offerings from youth and adult sports, to swim lessons, to lifeguard certification and more. Visit our Programs page to check out everything we have to offer.
While we would hate to see you go, you can cancel your membership at any time. A request to cancel must be made in writing and must be completed 30 days prior to your next scheduled draft. You submit written notice in person or by mailing a written request to your branch.
Should any membership draft be declined for any reason, the account will be automatically re-drafted for any payment of a draft not honored. The member is responsible for that payment plus a service charge at the current rate, applied by the YMCA. This is in addition to any service fee my bank may charge.
Children under 10 may not use any part of the facility without being directly accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Children 10-12 may use the gymnasium on their own, as long as their parent/guardian is in the building and they are engaged in an activity. Children between the ages of 10-12 may use the pool if they pass the swim test without supervision. This privilege can be revoked for inappropriate behavior at any time.
Children 13+ may use the facility without a parent or guardian in the building. This privilege can be revoked for inappropriate behavior at any time.
Children age 12+ may participate in group fitness classes, but ages 12-13 must be accompanied by a parent.
Family includes the enrollee, spouse/partner, and legal dependents as defined by the IRS. The YMCA reserves the right to ask for the most recent copy of the 1040 form or other documentation in order to verify.
The Rappahannock Area YMCA requires an alcohol, drug, and tobacco-free environment. No alcohol consumption, smoking, dipping or other usage of tobacco is allowed in our building, at our pools, in our parking lot or on our grounds. In addition, using E-cigs, pipes and vapor products on our grounds is also prohibited.
Secure your bags, keys and other valuables in a locker with a lock. The YMCA is not responsible for lost or stolen property. We do keep lost and found items whenever possible. Please inquire at the Welcome Center if you are missing something.
To aid the effort in our ability to provide a safe and threat-free environment, the YMCA monitors sexual offender registries. Persons on the list will not be eligible for Y membership, program participation, volunteer or employment opportunities at the Rappahannock Area YMCA.
If you have an accident, injury or incident while visiting the YMCA, contact a staff member immediately so that we can help. Our facility is equipped with AED devices and our staff team is trained in CPR, AED, and basic first aid.
Program fees are set to provide quality services and represent the cost of providing activities or services not included in your membership dues. YMCA members receive preferred rates on programs. For your convenience, online program registration is available on our website.
Every day, the Rappahannock Area YMCA offers quality, affordable programs and services designed to benefit people of all incomes and backgrounds. The Y uses contributed funds from our Annual Campaign to ensure that those unable to pay the stated amount for a membership or program can participate. Those unable to pay the full fee may receive Financial Assistance based on their ability to pay and the Y’s ability to support. All records are kept confidential. Please visit our Income Based Membership page or your branch Welcome Center for more information.
