The Fond du Lac Family YMCA is proud to offer our members access to YMCA facilities across the United States that participate in Nationwide Membership. This way, our members can use the Y as often as they like, making it easier to achieve their health and wellness goals.


Nationwide Membership enables you to visit any participating YMCA in the United States through membership at your “home” YMCA (your home Y is the local association that enrolled you as a member and collects your membership dues). We offer Nationwide Membership because we want to help you reach your health and wellness goals wherever you live, work or travel. This is an essential part of our mission to strengthen communities. 


We understand that sometimes it is more convenient for members to take advantage of a Y near their workplace or when they are traveling outside the area of their home Y. With Nationwide Membership, members have the flexibility to use participating Y facilities throughout the United States at no extra charge.


  1. Nationwide Membership is valid for active, full facility YMCA members whose home Y participates without restriction or blackout periods.

  2. Nationwide member visitors must use their home Y at least 50% of the time.

  3. Program-only participants (including SilverSneakers®, Silver&Fit® or other similar programs) are not eligible for nationwide membership.

  4. When visiting a Y, nationwide members will be required to show a valid YMCA membership card and photo ID as well as provide basic membership data such as name and email address.

  5. Members will need to sign a universal liability waiver and privacy policy.

  6. Ys should allow nationwide members access to services typically offered to full-facility members. Check with the Y for schedule and availability.

  7. Registered sex offenders are prohibited from participating.
