Monthly Payments

Our monthly draft system is a flexible and convenient way to pay for a membership. Upon joining the YMCA, the joiner’s fee and the first month’s draft are due, as well as a prorated based on the date you join. With your permission, an automatic monthly withdrawal will be made from your checking account or credit card.

Monthly payment plan membership rates are subject to change prior to your anniversary date. Draft memberships are to be drafted via your checking account or by Visa, MasterCard or Discover credit cards. Membership and program fees can be paid in full using your Discover, MasterCard, Visa or American Express credit card, check or cash.
