Membership Reciprocity


Nationwide Membership enables you to visit any participating Y in the United States through membership at your “home” YMCA (your home location is the facility that enrolled you as a member and that collects your membership dues).

We offer this because we want to help you reach your health and wellness goals wherever you live, work or travel. This is an essential part of our cause of strengthening communities.

The Wapakoneta Family YMCA accepts those using Nationwide Reciprocity.  There is no charge to use the facility with the exception of the Splash Pad.  Non-Wapakoneta Family YMCA members must pay the guest entrance fee to use the Splash Pad.  For more information on hours and costs, click here.

What You Need to Know

Valid for active, full facility YMCA members.

On a monthly basis, nationwide member visitors must use their home Y at least 50% of the time.

Program-only participants and special memberships are not eligible for Nationwide Membership.

Make sure the Y offers the services and amenities you plan to use.

Bring a photo ID with you for your visit.

You will be asked to sign a waiver when visiting another Y location.
