Reciprocity

My Y is now every Y in South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia!

Your Y just got a whole lot bigger! We want to encourage members to utilize the Y as often as they can. Sometimes, it’s more convenient for membership to utilize a Y in a different location when traveling, near a workplace or in another region.

Now, full facility/full privilege YMCA members have the flexibility to use other Y facilities throughout the states of South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia at no extra charge. Simply present your active YMCA membership card and photo ID at the Y you’re visiting and enjoy free access. The catch: YMCA members must use their home branch at least 51% of the time.

Some restrictions and exclusions apply. Prior to visiting a Y, we recommend members contact them for more information.

Now get out, explore and stay connected to the Y!

Reciprocity Guidelines

We welcome our YMCA friends from South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia. In addition, we offer member pricing for some programs to those whose membership we can verify through the reciprocity database at the time of registration. This includes sports clinics, swim lessons, and Fast Feet.

Exclusions: At this time, only those with an Upper Palmetto YMCA family membership are eligible to receive youth sports at the cost of the uniform. In other words, UPYMCA members pay no league fees to register for youth sports leagues; their only cost is a uniform fee (estimated cost $15). Members through reciprocity are not eligible to receive this benefit.

Also, locker and towel service are not available to reciprocity members at the Charlotte Avenue YMCA.

We welcome you, and we look forward to serving you!
