Welcome to the YMCA of South Hampton Roads. We hope your visit is enjoyable! Please remember that our first priority is to serve our members who have made a commitment to the Y by joining. The purpose behind our guest policy is to enhance member service to current members who are encouraging a friend to join and make reasonable accommodations for members of other YMCA locations traveling in our are, for out-of-town family of current members and for out-of-town visitors.
Family centers can restrict guest usage, hours of usage and area of usage with or without notice to ensure the safety and comfort of members. We highly encourage members to contact the YMCA prior to visiting with a guest to inquire about guest restrictions due to demands on the facility.
All YMCA of South Hampton Roads locations are part of one association; therefore, a visit to one location counts as a visit to all centers. Guests must present proper photo ID.
Note that per our guest policy, guests under the age of 18 MUST have a parent/guardian sign the guest waiver, even if you are old enough to use the Y without parent/guardian supervision as outlined in the age guidelines.
The YMCA of South Hampton Roads is proud to serve members across the country through the Y's Nationwide Membership Program.
Please note that the Outer Banks Family YMCA has guest policy exceptions from May 1–September 30. See below.
Always welcome in every community.
Nationwide Membership enables Y members to visit any participating YMCA in the United States.
- Valid for active full facility YMCA members
- Nationwide member visitors must use their home Y at least 50% of the time
- Program-only participants, Silver Sneakers and Portsmouth-only members are not eligible for Nationwide Membership.
- Guests who wish to use the Y with a nationwide member must live within our service area and abide by the in-town guest policy.
Visit the Nationwide Membership Link below to find a participating Y.
Local residents may access the Y by using a day pass up to three times per year at a cost of $10/visit. The cost of each guest pass may be used to reduce the joining fee if you choose to join the Y in 2021.
Out of town guest passes are temporarily suspended due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions that limit capacities in our YMCAs.
