7th Grade Membership


Play Basketball • Swim • Learn to Workout • Play in the Game Rooms • Leadership Training & More!

Seventh Grade is a pivotal and transitional time for many teens. It is a time when sports become more competitive and provide less opportunity for the average child to be involved in physical activity. It is also the time when teens are given more freedom to choose how they spend their free time. Habits that begin in the 7th grade are likely to continue into adulthood.

The Meadowlands YMCA wants to support and encourage kids to make good decisions and form healthy habits that lead to a healthy lifestyle.

We provide a FREE membership to every 7th grader residing in East Rutherford, Rutherford, Wood-Ridge, Carlstadt, Wallington, North Arlington, Lyndhurst, Moonachie, and Secaucus. Students will thrive in a safe and positive environment that encourages them to grow in spirit, mind and body. 

Seventh Grade members receive full access to the Meadowlands YMCA facility, including the new aquatics center, wellness center (pending youth wellness orientation), the Gatorade Gymnasium, and all of the other amazing amenities and services offered here. 

Seventh Grade members will enjoy access to the Teen Center -  a fun environment to enjoy activities like ping pong, fusbol, TV, board games, reading in the former lockers of NBA Nets players, and much more. 


       Monday - Friday: 4pm - 8pm

       Saturday & Sunday: 9am - 2pm


We will be hosting a kickball game to kickoff for all new 7th Grade members on Wednesday, October 23rd at 4:30pm in the Gatorade Gym. 


7th Grade memberships are eligible from September 1st - August 31st of the 7th grade year. Each student must be registered by parent/guardian and bring in proof of their grade, i.e. Report Card, Class Schedule or Bus Pass. Call 201-955-5300 or visit our Welcome Center to register.
