Membership

Dear Y community:

When you belong to the Y, you build more than muscle, you strengthen our community. You’re committing to more than simply becoming healthier. You are supporting the values and programs that strengthen your community.

Every day the impact of the Y is felt when someone makes a healthy choice, a teacher or coach inspires a child and builds their confidence, and when neighbors come together for the common good. 

Member safety is our top priority and the YMCA is clean, safe, and in full compliance with all State of Connecticut and local public health guidelines. Masks are required for unvaccinated individuals. Temperature checks are taken upon entry to the facility.

Contact Carmen at 203.440.0260 or chaparro@meridenymca.org to learn more about membership.
