As a nonprofit charitable organization, the Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA strives to make membership and programs accessible to everyone, regardless of their financial circumstances. To apply for financial assistance, bring copy of your most recent tax return; we will refer to line #4 on the 1040EZ, line #22 on the 1040 long form, or Schedule C if you’re self-employed or non-filing letter when you come to join the YMCA. Please contact your local Y if you have questions about the approval process.

Do I have to pay a joining fee again if I am a previous member of the YMCA?
If your membership has been inactive for more than 60 days, you must pay the joining fee to renew your membership. If you are a YMCA member at any other association than Tampa, you can provide your Tampa Y with a letter on your current association’s stationary. The letter needs to state you paid their YMCA association or location a joining fee (and the amount paid) in order to receive a credit toward the Tampa Metro YMCA joining fee (for the amount previously paid).
How can I cancel my YMCA membership?
Your membership is very important to us, and we want to handle each membership cancellation with the attention it deserves. You may terminate your membership at any time with written 30-day notice. This must be done in person by providing a signed Request for Cancellation form. NOTE: THE YMCA WILL NOT ACCEPT PHONE CALLS FOR CANCELLATION.
