Website Terms and Conditions
Please read about our website Terms and Conditions here.
The Ashland YMCA is happy to offer the benefits of Silver&Fit, a fitness and healthy aging program designed to help you achieve better health through regular exercise. Silver&Fit is offered through many insurance plans and covers membership fees for older adults of Medicare age and up. To learn more, contact your insurance agent or visit the Silver & Fit website. Bring your insurance card to member services, and we'll check to see if you qualify. Please note that specially contracted memberships do not receive guest passes nor are eligible for NationWide membership.
Insurance Subsidized Memberships
You may be eligible for free or reduced membership using your insurance company benefits. We contract with several organizations to bill for monthly membership dues. Jackson Care Connect, AllCare CCO and AllCare Health Advantage. Bring your insurance card to member services to see if you qualify for a subsidized membership. Please note that specially contracted memberships do not receive guest passes nor are eligible for NationWide membership.
Pre-registration is required for all fitness and aquatic classes. Applicable fees must be paid in full at the time of registration and there will be no refunds after the second class session. Some classes have limited enrollment - early registration is recommended.
Child Abuse Prevention Practices
We count on the generosity of our members and donors to support the Y's scholarship program, which focuses on children and teens and provides financial assistance, on a sliding scale fee, to those in times of hardship. Gifts to the scholarship fund make a huge difference in the lives of kids in our community. Every dollar donated goes directly to scholarships that send less fortunate kids to camp, teach them water safety and the joy of swimming, and allow them to learn and grow in the Y's after-school programs, sports leagues, and gymnastics classes while building self-esteem and developing the core Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
We accept donations online, by check, or using Visa and MasterCard. We are also happy to take donation payments in quarterly or monthly installments.
If you feel that you qualify for assistance this year, contact the Y or find the financial assistance application here. Assistance may also depend on the availability of funds.
We Welcome Volunteers!
Our volunteers work in programs, lead classes, act as greeters and help raise funds to support our work. Pick up an application at the front desk and join us! Online volunteer applications available here.
Termination for Cause
Members are subject to termination for cause, including verbal, physical or sexual harassment of any YMCA member, guest or employee; illegal or unsafe acts; or violation of YMCA membership policies. We reserve the right to refuse service to a member or guest.
The Y will be closed on New Year’s Day, Easter Sunday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Additional closure dates may be necessary for building maintenance or repairs. Your low monthly membership fee takes these closures into account.
