24-Hour Access Honor Code Policy
The YMCA has a strict honor code based on our values of honesty, respect, caring, and responsibility. If a member fails to abide by the policies established or follow member conduct guidelines, their 24-hour access and their membership will be revoked without refund. Violations of the Honor Code with trespassing, theft, and other crimes may lead to prosecution.
As a member with 24-hour access, you may use the Fitness Center area of the Y at any time.* The Y will be staffed during normal operating hours. There will be no YMCA staff on hand after normal operating hours to assist members. After normal operating hours end, the following areas will be unavailable:
- Group Exercise Rooms
- Pool & Locker Rooms
- Gymnasiums (no basketball available)
- Indoor Running Track
- Drop-in Childcare
- Member Services and Offices
*SilverSneakers/RenewActive members may add 24-hour Access to their membership and use any participating SilverSneakers/Renew Active location.
24-hour access is limited to adults, age 18 and older. Members who violate this policy may lose their membership privileges.
Day pass guests are only allowed to use the YMCA during normal business hours when a YMCA staff member is on duty. No guests are allowed to utilize the 24-hour access.
Safety and Security
Please be aware that your personal access code is to be used only for your entrance into the facility. Members with 24-hour access cannot grant access to others, even if they are known to them. Granting access to another individual is grounds for immediate termination of membership.
For members to have the added benefit of the 24-Hour access program, the YMCA must have a photo ID secured on file. This is required for any member that wants to participate in the 24-Hour access program.
The YMCA has a 24-hour video recording system for security purposes. It will be reviewed daily to address any security concerns and monitor who is entering the building. Please note that this system does not provide staffing assistance for any emergency that might arise. A telephone is located at the Member Services desk and the Wellness Center Desk in case of emergency. In the event of an emergency, always dial 9 first to gain access to a phone line that will reach outside the building, then dial 911.
If the Y loses power after normal operating hours, 24-hour access will not be available.
Members with 24-hour access will be notified of closures for inclement weather that result in unsafe conditions via the YMCA App and/or text alerts.
Family Center Closure
The YMCA of South Hampton Roads reserves the right to close Centers and 24-hour access as the situation warrants. Regularly scheduled Church services at the Princess Anne YMCA on Sunday mornings, special events, and severe weather are all examples of when 24-Hour access may not be available. The YMCA will notify members through the Mobile App and Text alert system when unexpected closures occur.
Access Code Entry
24-hour members must use their own access code for entry. In the event that your access code does not work, please call the YMCA during normal operating hours for assistance. Members are also required to scan out when they exit the facility. Please use the same entrance and exit location when enjoying the 24-hour benefit. Emergency exits are available to use in the event of an emergency.
To complete enrollment in the YMCA of South Hampton Roads 24-Hour Access program you must agree to and initial each of the following policies:
- I understand that I must follow the YMCA COVID-19 pre-screening program every time to enter the YMCA facility, even when using the 24-hour access model. If I have a temperature ≥100.4°F or any of the other posted COVID-19 symptoms I will not enter and use the YMCA facility.
- I will wipe down all wellness equipment with the provided disinfectant wipes before and after use.
- I understand that I must provide the Y with contact information changes (address, phone, email) as they occur.
- I understand that 24-hour access is limited to adults, age 18 and older and that if I provide access to someone under the age of 18 my membership will be canceled immediately and without refund.
- I understand that my 24-hour access pass is exclusive to me and that I may not give anyone else access to use it.
- I understand that I am not allowed to bring any guest or member without 24-hour access with me into the Family Center and that doing so will result in the immediate cancellation of my membership. I also understand that if I allow access to anyone, that is considered trespassing and legal action will be taken toward myself and the trespasser.
- I understand that the YMCA of South Hampton Roads highly recommends that you have an adult workout partner, who also has 24-hour membership access, accompany you while using the YMCA during unstaffed hours. The YMCA of South Hampton Roads uses 24-hour video monitoring of our Centers for security purposes. This system does not provide staffing assistance for emergencies but is reviewed daily to address any security concerns and to monitor building access. It is likely that should you require immediate assistance, none will be provided.
- I understand that I will be charged $4.99 per month as part of my continuous membership plan in addition to my regular monthly membership dues in order to use the Y 24-hours per day and that I must give the YMCA a 30-day written notice to stop my monthly draft.
