Overview

At the Y, there's no contract or long-term commitment. We hope you stay with us for a long time, but understand sometimes life changes, so our membership allows you the flexibility to join without committing to a long-term contract. If you will be traveling or cannot come to the Y for medical reasons, you can place your membership on hold for up to 90 days.

Note: members of the Crozet YMCA require a citywide membership upgrade to use the Brooks YMCA.

Open Door Financial Assistance Program

Because of our nonprofit mission, at the Y, no one is turned away for their inability to pay. Through our Open Door financial assistance program, membership is available on a sliding scale based on income and membership type.

This program is part of our commitment to strengthening the foundations of community through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.
