Memberships at the YMCA do not require a contract. Memberships are paid monthly or annually and may be paid on either a credit/debit card or monthly bank draft. If signing up using a bank draft, members may choose to draft on either the 1st or the 15th of each month. If signing up online, on your first visit to the YMCA, our Member Service Staff will be happy to assist you in getting your new membership card, taking a picture for your account, and giving you a tour! No appointment is necessary.
The YMCA is for everyone! Funding for Y Match memberships and programs is made possible through community donations to the YMCA. This assistance is available, within the limits of our resources, to members that provide complete documentation showing their inability to pay the full member rate. Members looking for financial assistance must sign-up in person. Learn more on our Financial Assistance page. Questions? Please call 701.364.4118.
The one-time enrollment fee is a tax-deductible payment for all membership types listed above, excluding the Student/Youth and Child Care Package. The fee is paid upon membership sign-up and will only be charged once except in the case of a lapse in membership.

Health Club Credit Programs
Many YMCA members get paid to work out! The YMCA partners with many insurance providers to offer monthly reimbursements to members with participating health plans. To find out if your plan qualifies, simply call the number on the back of your insurance card.
YMCA members receive 12 passes a year to our partner facility – Family Wellness (near Scheels Arena). Plus, as a YMCA member, you have access to other YMCA’s around the world through the YMCA’s Nationwide Membership program!
We are happy to welcome YMCA members who are using the Y's Nationwide Membership to visit our facilities. Due to COVID-19, we encourage our members to call the YMCA they are traveling to in advance to make sure that facility is allowing Nationwide reciprocity at this time.
Liability Waiver: By participating in the YMCA Nationwide Membership Program, I agree to release the National Council of Young Men’s Christian Associations of the United States of America, and its independent and autonomous member associations in the United States and Puerto Rico, from claims of negligence for bodily injury or death in connection with the use of YMCA facilities, and from any liability for other claims, including loss of property, to the fullest extent of the law.

Hospitality Passes grant access into the entire facility at both Fercho and Schlossman YMCAs (excl. PlayTown). Many hotels utilize these passes to hand out to their traveling guests looking for a space to workout and also traveling groups to come in and simply use our locker rooms and showers. Hospitality Passes do not replace a rental.
Group & Agency Memberships
An organization may purchase an annual membership for their group or agency. This mission-based program allows those who may not have access or ability to pay for a full membership the opportunity to participate, and does not require individual memberships for each participant. Rates are $500 annually for non-profit organizations, and $1,000 annually for for-profit organizations and allows each group 10 passes to use at the YMCA for one year. Additional passes may be purchased for $20 per card. Participants may share cards with others in the same group or agency. If cards are lost, replacements may be purchased for $5. Group and Agency Memberships may join at any time, but are renewed August 1 (if you join after August 1, memberships will be pro-rated). To apply, please fill out the Group Usage Agreement and drop it off at either the Fercho or Schlossman YMCA, or email it to email@example.com. With additional questions, please call 701.364.4118.
