The partial list of policies below help ensure that everyone who enters our center has a positive Y experience. For full details and policies, please refer to our Member Handbook.

Guest Policy (partial)

As a membership-based organization that serves its community, the Y extends our member services to current members who are encouraging a friend to join or providing opportunities to bring a friend for a visit. All centers have Guest Hours and may restrict guest usage to ensure the safety and comfort of our current members. We highly encourage members to contact the Y prior to visiting with a guest to ask about guest restrictions due to demand on the facility.

Guests under age 18 must have a parent/guardian sign them in on their first visit. Guests under age 13 must be accompanied by an adult at all times during their visit.

  • One complimentary visit per person, per year (Jan 1—Dec 31) when accompanied by a current member
  • Additional visit (or visits without accompany by a current member) $10 per person, per visit

Nationwide Membership

When you join the Y, you become part of a national movement of 18.1 million members in more than 2,400 Ys. Because each Y is autonomous, not-for-profit, and not a franchise, local policies vary on the use of equipment, facilities and services by visiting Y members. If you plan to visit another Y, please call that Y regarding visiting member policies. General guidelines for Y Members outside of the Y in Central Maryland:

  • Guest must maintain a majority of their visits (in a month) at their hometown Y.
  • No additional charges for visit.
  • Use of facilities, services, and equipment are included; however, discounts on programs and services may vary.
  • All Y in Central Maryland locations are part of one association; therefore, a visit to one location counts as a visit to all Central Maryland locations.
