YMCA Policies

All members must present their cards at the Member Service Desk in order to use the facilities. Membership cards do not have an expiration date. A new card is not issued when your membership is renewed. After the 2nd replacement card there is a $1.00 fee.

To cancel your membership, please email your request to welcomecenter@newportymca.org or fill out a cancellation form in person located at the Welcome Center. Requests to cancel membership must be received AND confirmed by Welcome Center Staff 7 business days (minimum) prior to the date membership fees are withdrawn. Less than 7 business days will result in the cancellation taking effect the following month. Refunds will not be issued if proper notice is not provided.

A membership can be placed on hold for up to 3 months, once in a 12-month period, and a written request (by email or by completing a form at the Welcome Center) must be provided to hold a membership. Requests to hold membership must be received AND confirmed by Welcome Center Staff 7 business days (minimum) prior to the date membership fees are withdrawn. Less than 7 business days will result in the hold taking effect the following month.
*Please note: length of a membership hold may vary depending on the situation. (Updated 2/10/2021)

“Members Only” registration begins prior to the start of the first program session on the current YMCA program brochure. Programs are offered to YMCA members at special reduced rates. *Short-term members will NOT receive membership benefits for program registration; participants must remain members for the duration of the program to receive full benefits.

Membership Fees may be paid by using an electronic funds transfer that automatically debits your checking or credit card account for the monthly fee.
* A seven (7) business day written notice prior to your draft date is required to change or stop your debit. I understand if my payment bounces for my membership dues or program registration fees, I will receive an additional $30 returned payment fee.

There is a fee charged to our new members. Memberships which are not renewed within thirty days of the expiration date will be classified as new memberships and are subject to a reprocessing fee of $10 (young adult) $50.00 (adult) $65 (single parent family) or $75.00 (families). Joiner fees are non-refundable.

All Newport County YMCA promotional materials use photographs taken during actual programs and events. If you wish that your photograph not be used, a written request must be given to the Membership and Marketing Director.

A full refund or credit may be requested prior to the start of a program. A credit may be applied toward any NCYMCA program. If a refund is requested after the first class prior to the third, a 50% refund or credit will be issued. There will be no refunds or credits issued after the third class. Refunds or credits are not available for individuals who miss class due to their own lack of attendance. Please see the department director for refunds or credits.

Make up classes will not be scheduled when a class is not held due to circumstances beyond our control (weather, public utility failures; etc.) that cause the YMCA to cancel. Refunds or credits are not available for individuals who miss due to their own lack of attendance.

Simply said, to practice the YMCA values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. Our code of conduct does not permit language or actions that might hurt or frighten another person or that falls below a generally accepted standard of conduct. Suspension or revocation of membership privileges may result from any violation of the Code of Conduct.

I understand if my payment bounces, I will receive an additional $30 returned payment fee.
