Wherever you travel in Iowa, we want you to have the opportunity to nurture a healthy spirit, mind and body and connect with local communities. Now, YMCA members have the flexibility to use Y facilities outside of the Greater Des Moines area at no extra charge through the membership reciprocity program!
WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE IOWA MEMBERSHIP RECIPROCITY PROGRAM?
The program is for full facility/full privilege Y members (those holding adult, household, or senior memberships) whose home Y is located in Iowa.
DOES IT COST EXTRA TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS PROGRAM?
No, all full facility/full privilege members may participate at no additional charge. The reciprocity program is intended to be an added benefit and convenience for members when visiting other communities. You need to maintain a full facility/full privilege membership at the Y you visit most frequently.
HOW OFTEN CAN I USE ONE OF THESE YMCAS? ARE THERE ANY RESTRICTIONS ON WHAT I CAN DO AT A PARTICULAR YMCA?
There is no limit on the number of visits by reciprocal members. We recommend members check the individual Y's website before visiting. See ymca.net for a complete listing of all Ys.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING TO VERIFY THAT I AM A CURRENT Y MEMBER?
You must bring your photo ID (i.e. driver's license) and current membership card in order to utilize another Y. By providing these items the staff at the visiting Y will be able to verify your current Y membership. It is mandatory that you bring a government-issued photo ID with you.
Some restrictions may apply at certain YMCAs; contact the Y you're visiting for their policy.
