The Y’s new 8th Grade Initiative, offers a free YMCA membership to all students in grade eight. The goal of this initiative is to inspire young people to discover their passions, develop healthy lifestyles and develop the tools they need to avoid risky behaviors so they can better succeed in school and in life.
Here’s how it works:

  • Every eighth-grader gets a membership card with access to the fitness center, pool and gymnasium, valid through the School year.
  • Each student needs to come into the Y with a parent or guardian to fill out the forms and provide consent.
  • During sign-up, bring valid third or fourth-quarter report card from grade seven.
  • A fitness center orientation will be scheduled and that’s it!

Membership begins when the paperwork is done and the fitness center orientation is complete!

2022 / 2023 – 8th Graders can register as early as June 1, 2022!
