New Member Checklist

Now that you are a member of the YMCA, here are a few things to help you get the most out of your Y experience.

Schedule a Tour (if you haven’t had one yet)

Get familiar with your Y facility, programs and services and meet the people who will help you transform your life. Stop by your local Y.

Schedule your Get Started Appointment.

Work with a wellness coach to identify your goals and create an achievable plan for success. Be sure to make your appointment at the membership desk right away. This program is FREE.

Create Your Online Account

Call the Y to make sure you have a valid email address on your membership account. Then, visit YMCAERIE.ORG to create your online account. Log-in the top right hand corner using the email address attached to your membership account. Select and set a password. This is where you’ll make reservations, register for classes and access Y360.

Schedule Follow Up Get Started Appointments

Track your progress, review your goals and see just how far you’ve come with the Y. Let us celebrate your successes with you and help you continue your health and wellness journey.

Invite a Friend or Family Member

Find a fitness partner that will push you, boost your confidence and make exercising fun! Invite a friend or family member to join the Y too. Y members receive unlimited guest passes. Just remember that you must accompany your guest while they are at the Y. Your guest is limited to 3 visits and must then either purchase a day pass or join the Y.
