My Y is Every Y

Membership Reciprocity Program

The Y movement is for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We want to encourage members to utilize the Y as often as they can. Sometimes, it’s more convenient for members to utilize a Y in a different location when traveling, near a workplace, or in another region. Now, full facility/full privilege YMCA members have the flexibility to use other Y facilities throughout New Jersey at no extra charge.


Simply present your active YMCA membership card and photo ID at any participating YMCA and enjoy free access. Check out some important program details below.


  • The Reciprocal Membership Program is valid for YMCA full facility/full privilege members only.
  • Silver Sneakers members may use other Silver Sneakers locations at any time. 
  • Visitors to other Ys must present a valid YMCA membership card and photo ID upon the first visit and complete a visiting member waiver or standard membership application form with liability waiver.
  • YMCA full facility/full privilege members must use their home branch at least 50% of the time.
  • YMCA Member Service & Program discounts do not apply.
  • Participating YMCAs reserve the right to restrict facility or program access.
  • Other restrictions may apply.
