Membership Benefits


membershipWhen you join the Edwardsville YMCA, you belong to a community of men, women and children who strive every day to be healthy, confident and connected. The Y is a place where adults connect with and make friends, pursue interests and learn how to live healthier. Children and teens play, learn who they are and what they can achieve, and are accepted. Parents find a safe, positive environment for their children to learn good values, social skills and behaviors. Communities thrive because neighbors support each other and give back. We all build relationships that further our sense of belonging and purpose. Because the Y is for everyone, we bring together parents and kids like no other organization. Children can begin learning a sport from a young age and hone their skills that can last a lifetime. Adults have the opportunity to try new things either for themselves or with their children. From family programs to game nights, the Y provides endless possibilities for families to spend quality time together. With the Y, you’re not just a member of a facility, you’re part of a cause. With a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, improving health and well-being, and giving back and supporting our neighbors, your membership gives you and your community the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
