Just request an account change here, or contact your local YMCA membership director. *Please also be sure to also request to downgrade your membership after the summer if that’s your preference!

Upgrade for Outdoor Pool & Splash Park Access

Due to high demand in our outdoor pools and splash parks, access will be limited to Adult and Family memberships only, and guest passes will not be available. If your child currently has an Under 18 membership, upgrade for the summer months to take advantage of our outdoor water features!
