Nationwide Membership

Access to over 700 Ys across the country

We are happy to share the Madison Area YMCA now welcomes Nationwide members. With nationwide membership, your Y membership now allows you to visit any participating YMCA in the United States and Puerto Rico, at no additional cost. So, when you're traveling, all Ys accepting Nationwide Memberships, are open to Y members and provide a safe and welcoming environment for everyone - no matter where you are. Nationwide Membership is an essential part of our cause to strengthen communities.  

The first time you visit a Y outside of your home Y, you will need to sign a waiver. It takes just a few minutes, with a photo ID, and once it’s done, you won’t have to do it again! If you know you are heading out of town, feel free to stop by the Welcome Center at your local Y and sign the waiver in-branch. You can print and fill the form out ahead of time, too. Then you are all set to enjoy the benefits of nationwide membership!

We care about your safety
As your safety, and that of your family's, is always our primary concern, the YMCA conducts regular sex offender screenings on all members, participants and guests. If a sex offender match occurs, the YMCA reserves the right to cancel membership, end program participation, and remove visitation access. 

*Some restrictions may apply or vary among the participating Ys, so we recommend you call ahead prior to your visit. Visit to find a participating Y location in the area you are visiting.

As a cause-driven 501(c)(3) charitable organization, the Madison Area YMCA believes everyone, regardless of age, income or background, should have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. For more information about financial assistance or to make a donation, please call 973-822-9622 or visit our Welcome Center.
