Membership Policies

MEMBERSHIP CARDS

All YMCA members are required to present their key tag or membership card to enter the facility, when utilizing Child Watch and when registering for programs. Key tags and membership cards are barcode protected and are only valid for one individual as specified by our database. They are non-transferable to another individual. An access card is required to enter the whirlpool/steam/sauna area. Please see the front desk if you no longer have a YMCA photo access/membership card. You must be 19 years or older to use the whirlpool/steam/sauna area.

SUPERVISION OF YOUTH MEMBERS

Parents are responsible for the safety and supervision of their children at all times. Children under the age of 12 years may not be left unattended in the facility. Unsupervised workouts using cardiovascular equipment or free weights is not permitted prior to age 16 years without proper teen weight training certification. 

The staff of the Henry County YMCA strive to keep the facility safe for you and your family at all times. For this reason children 7 years of age and are required to:

  • Be participating in a YMCA program
  • Be under responsible adult supervision
  • Be in Child Watch

BEHAVIOR & DISCIPLINE

The YMCA seeks to model and encourage Christian principles, ideals and values in language, behavior, dress, and attitude. Staff reserves the right to determine standards for acceptable behavior on the YMCA premises. Violation of these standards can result in suspension or withdrawal of membership privileges at the discretion of the Executive Director, the Membership Committee, or the Board of Directors. In the event of a dismissal from a program or the YMCA due to disciplinary action, membership dues will not be refunded.

DRESS & ATTIRE

Immodest clothing or inappropriate attire should not be worn in the facility. Members are required to wear shoes and shirt while in the building. The ONLY exception to this is while using the pool, whirlpool, or sauna.

VIDEO RECORDING DEVICES

The YMCA has cameras placed throughout or facility for security reasons. Video recorders, cameras, or any other visual recording devices are not allowed within the YMCA locker rooms. Most mobile phones now have the capability to take pictures and/or videos as well. Please be aware if someone has a device of this nature pointed in your direction. Please report any incident of this nature immediately to a YMCA staff member.

Anyone caught taking pictures of another person without their permission and knowledge will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law by the YMCA and may lead to the termination of their membership. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

SEX OFFENDER POLICY

Since it is contrary to the mission of the YMCA to be a sex offender, the YMCA will deny or revoke a membership to such a person. If such a person is currently a member when we discover he/she is or has ever been classified as a sex offender, we will refund the percentage amount of the membership fee that is still valid. A no tolerance stance will be taken on all sex offenders.
