Join the Y

Why the Y?



  • NO CONTRACT – Pay month to month and cancel any time with 30 days written notice.
  • NATIONWIDE MEMBERSHIP – The Rappahannock Area YMCA participates in Nationwide Membership so you can use any participating YMCA across the country!
  • PROGRAM DISCOUNTS – Y Members get discounted rates on everything from Swim Lessons to Preschool.
  • ALL ARE WELCOME – At the Y, we believe that no one should be turned away for inability to pay. That’s why we offer income-based scholarships to those in need. See our Financial Assistance page for more information on how to apply.

Memberships are drafted monthly by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT), bank or credit card. There is no end date as these memberships auto-renew monthly.
Available draft dates are the first and the fifteenth of the month.

Cancellation Policy:

Membership cancellation must be submitted in writing 30 days prior to your scheduled draft date or termination date. Membership privileges will be suspended for bad drafts after 30 days. A $20 insufficient fund fee will be applied to any returned bank or credit card draft amounts. Outstanding balances must be settled before membership reactivation or program registration/sales.
