Over the past five years, our children’s Registered Programs have become substantially more costly to deliver. In order to continue providing the high-quality programs the YMCA prides itself upon, we’ve developed a new, sustainable pricing model for them. Over the coming year, we will be phasing out the all-inclusive Registered Program option fee of $19 per month, which allowed children to sign up for an unlimited number of Registered Programs. We found that this model was not only difficult to sustain, but it was excluding thousands of children from accessing even one program due to long wait lists.
Our new model will allow you to register for as many Registered Programs as you choose at a cost of $16 per program, per month. At just under $4 per lesson, this new model still provides terrific value, and it will allow us to create new and exciting instructional programs that more children will be able to enjoy.
Your monthly billing will remain as is until your next YMCA membership anniversary, after which your payments will change as follows:
Individual Full Fee Members
Preschool, Child, and Youth Full Fee memberships will include one Registered Program. Each additional program will cost $16 per month.
Individual Assisted Members
Preschool, Child, and Youth Assisted memberships will include one Registered Program. Each additional program will be offered at a reduced rate of $10 per month.
Family General & Family Plus Full Fee Members with the Registered Option
Family General memberships will be automatically reduced to $97 per month (plus tax), and Family Plus memberships will be automatically reduced to $171 per month (plus tax). These are the costs of Family General and Family Plus Memberships without the Registered Option. Registered Programs will no longer be included in your monthly membership payments; each Registered Program will cost $16 per month, per child.
Family General Assisted Members with the Registered Option
Registered Programs will no longer be included in your monthly membership payments; each Registered Program will be offered at a reduced rate of $10 per month. These changes will be made in conjunction with your regular membership review meetings, so you’ll have an opportunity to discuss them with our staff and express any concerns or needs you may have.
These changes only apply to Registered Programs, which include swimming lessons, martial arts, and instructional basketball, soccer and dance. We offer a variety of drop-in programs for kids and families that will still be included in your membership, such as Family Gym, Family Swim, and a wide variety of Family Sports programs.
We'll notify you in writing, and you'll have an opportunity to change the Registered Programs on your membership before we adjust your monthly fees.
Our membership team is available during your centre’s regular hours of operation to answer all of your questions, and offer recommendations for the best membership options for you and your family. Please don’t hesitate to drop by the membership desk, or call us at 1-800-223-8024, if you have any concerns. You can also read our FAQs for more details.
