Membership & Guest Policies


Membership at the Y is flexible and available to everyone. We do not require a contract, and it's easy to join.

Membership dues draft on the 1st or 15th of each month, directly to your debit or credit card. For other draft date and payment options, please speak with a Welcome Center staff person.

You can join at the Regional Rate, which gives you complete membership privileges and access to all of our locations, or at a lower single branch rate to have access to only the Pullum (Navarre) Branch. A Regional Membership offers access to all branches in our association, plus most Ys in the United States.

Each new membership is typically charged a $50 Joiner’s Fee. There is no Joiner's Fee for a Young Adult membership.If you are a former member who canceled at any time since March 1, 2020, for any reason, we will waive your Joiner's Fee if you return by June 30, 2021.

Not sure if you're ready to join? We offer a Trial Membership at no cost, valid for seven days from the day you sign up. A Trial Membership is available once per calendar year and can be started at any time. JOIN NOW and then select Trial Membership from your membership options. When you visit the Y for the first time, we'll take your photo and you can start your seven-day trial immediately.

We offer a Daily Membershipof $15 per adult, which entitles you to all membership privileges for the day. If you decide to join the Y within one week of the daily, we will credit your first month's membership by $15.

Membership fees seem a little out of reach? We want everyone to be a part of the Y, which is why we offer Y Assistance to determine a membership rate that works for you.

Member Get A Member Referral Program

How It Works:

1. Invite a friend to join the Y by giving them a Member Get A Member Form with your information completed.

2. Your friend brings in the form when they join.

3. You will receive $20 off your next month's membership, and your friend will not have to pay their prorated membership fee. (Joiner's Fee still applies.)

* Qualifying new members are restricted to Adult, Household and Senior memberships only. Offer will not be retroactively applied and program does not apply towards YAssistance or Corporate Partnership.

Youth Daily Membership

Youth ages 13-17 may enjoy a Daily Membership at the $15 daily rate.

A teen permission form must be completed by a parent or legal guardian for a teenager to attend the Y as a daily member.

nationwide membership

We participate in Nationwide Membership, which enables our regional members to visit any participating YMCA in the United States through membership at the YMCA of Northwest Florida. We are committed to helping you reach your health and wellness goals wherever you live, work, or travel.

Things to know before you go:
  • Visit before you travel to make sure the Y you intend to visit participates in Nationwide Membership. More than 2,500 Y locations participate.
  • You must have an active membership to be eligible for Nationwide Membership.
  • On average, at least 50% of your visits must be to your Home YMCA (the local association that enrolled you and collects your membership dues).
  • If you have known periods of seasonal travel (when you will not be using your Home Y at least 50% of the time or will be a resident of another area for more than 28 days), you will need to place your Home Y membership on hold or cancel it, and join the Y where you will be living for that time period. Please plan ahead, as it may take several weeks to place your account on hold.
  • If you are a college student, you will need to join the YMCA where your usage is 50% or greater. Nationwide Membership is based on individual usage not the family unit. Most Ys have a young adult or college membership option or you can ask about the financial assistance program.
  • Most YMCAs require a photo ID for all visitors. Please bring a photo ID with you for a seamless customer experience.
  • You will be asked to sign a waiver when visiting other YMCA locations.
Our Mission: To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
