Member Benefits

YMCA Nationwide Reciprocity

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 YMCA members have the flexibility to use other Y facilities all around the nation, at no extra charge.


How It Works

The intent of Nationwide Membership is that all Y members who visit facilities other than their “Home Y” will be able to utilize all areas/programs of the visited facility that are available to and included in visited facility’s membership.

Nationwide membership is available for active, full facility/full privilege Y members whose Home Y participates in the program. Nationwide membership does not apply to guest visitors; guest visits are governed by the Visited Y’s guest policy.

Nationwide Members must present either (a) valid Y membership card that includes a photo or (b) photo identification upon each visit to a Y.

Y members under special memberships established by any Y for group homes, social service agencies, or other groups/nonprofit organizations are not eligible for Nationwide Membership.

*Members must use their “Home Y” at least 50% of the time.

If you have any questions, please contact Member Services at 712-336-9622.

YMCA Supervision Policy

All members/program participants must have completed facility waivers (by a parent or guardian if under 18). These are available at the YMCA Front Desk.

All program participants 11 years and under may utilize the YMCA Character Center (during hours of operation) prior to or after their supervised YMCA program when riding the bus. While supervision is provided, the YMCA Character Center is not a child care program.

  • Children ages 11 and under must be accompanied by an adult or in a supervised program when visiting the YMCA. 
  • All participants 12 years and older are welcome in the YMCA Facility on their own, but must be accompanied by an adult while utilizing the YMCA Wellness Center and Weight Room.
  • Children ages 13 and older may utilize the YMCA Wellness Center and Weight Room on their own.  
  • When using the pool, Children 7 and under MUST have a parent/guardian in the pool within arm’s reach at ALL times!


Financial Assistance is provided to individuals, kids, and families on a need basis and allows access to all programs, activities, and facilities at the YMCA.
