Nationwide Membership

Your Y Membership Travels With You

Sometimes, it’s more convenient for members to utilize a YMCA in a different location when traveling, near a workplace or in another region. Now, YMCA of Greater Erie members have the flexibility to use other Y facilities throughout the United States, at no extra charge!

The YMCA of Greater Erie’s County, Eastside Family and Glenwood Park locations reopen on Monday, Jan. 4 at 8 a.m. Note that masks are required AT ALL TIMES- including while actively exercising. The Downtown Y remains closed as work continues on air filtration systems.

How It Works

It’s easy! Simply present your YMCA membership key tag at any participating YMCA and enjoy full membership privileges at more than 2,000 YMCAs nationwide.

  • Nationwide Membership is valid for active, full facility YMCA members whose home Y participates without restriction or blackout periods; Silver Sneaker, Silver & Fit (or other like programs) are not eligible for nationwide membership
  • Special memberships established by any Y for group homes, other agencies, etc. are not eligible
  • When visiting a Y, nationwide members will be required to show a valid YMCA membership card and photo ID as well as provide basic membership data such as name and email address
  • Nationwide member visits must use their home Y at least 50% of the time
  • Members will need to sign a universal liability waiver and privacy policy
  • Ys should allow nationwide members access to services typically offered to full-facility members. Check with the Y for schedule and availability.
  • Nationwide members visiting other Ys for a period greater than 28 days must transfer membership affiliation for continued use
  • Ys reserve the right to restrict or revoke privileges
  • Registered sex offenders are prohibited from participation


At the Y, you’re not just a member of a facility; you’re part of a cause.
