Build Your Perfect Membership

The Y isn't just a place where you'll find Akron's most spectacular fitness facilities and largest youth sports leagues, it's a place where second graders can learn life-saving swim skills and middle schoolers have access to important after-school programs. It's a place where your membership isn't just something good for you--it's something great for us all.

Your membership gives you access to all YMCA branches and includes hundreds of group exercise classes, wellness programs, discounts on sports and youth programs and much, much more. 



Thanks to generous donors, the Akron Y makes it part of our mission to never turn anyone away due to inability to pay. Learn more about our Sliding Membership Scale by clicking the button below.

Although we are a membership-based organization, we do encourage folks to try us out. A one-time “TRY THE Y” pass is available to download and present to the front desk staff at one of our (6) membership locations. Those using this pass must bring in a valid ID.

In addition, a current Y member can bring in up to (2) Individual or (1) Family per day. All Guests are required to present a valid ID upon entering. Guests do have to pay a daily fee: $5 per Youth, $10 per Adult, and $20 per Family

We do have a Code of Conduct that includes behavior, dress codes and the consequences for acting in a manner not appropriate for an organization based in “golden rule” values and expectations.

We offer two methods of payment. The first is a monthly bank draft or credit card draft. The second option allows you to pay for the entire year's membership at once. Paid annual memberships earn one month free of charge; you pay for 12 months and get 13 months.
