Michiana Family YMCA
We have policies in place for the benefit and welfare of our members, guests and our organization. All policies are approved by the YMCA of Michiana, Inc., Board of Directors.
Bring your friend or family member to the Y with you! Guests 16 and older must have valid ID. Kids under 16 will be welcomed with an adult. During very busy hours, we may limit guest visits. Guest rates per visit: Youth $6/Adult $8.
Membership and joining fees are nonrefundable. Rarely, but in some cases, we may cancel a program if class enrollment is not sufficient. In the event we must cancel a program, a full refund or class credit will be issued. We understand that sometimes it becomes necessary for a Member to cancel a program or class. Refunds in this case will be at the discretion of the Program Director.
We welcome members of all ages! We want all kids and families to safely use the Y. Please be sure your child (11 and under) is enrolled in a supervised activity or with you at all times. Children under the age of 12 cannot be dropped off or left unattended at the Y.
We take the safety and security of our members very seriously. Please check in at our Welcome Center and show your card every time you visit. Every adult entering our facilities must show a photo ID.
Lost your card? Have a new one made for just $5!
Swimming is great for families who want to make a big splash with their time together! Children 11 and under must be accompanied by an adult during Open Swim. See our current schedule for times.
