Membership - A Great Investment
The YMCA is a membership-based organization. Therefore, membership is required and offered in a variety of categories; memberships may be obtained from any of our branches. More importantly, the YMCA of Anderson is a non-profit association open to all people regardless of age, ethnicity, gender or religion. We pledge that, subject to available resources, no child will be turned away due to an inability to pay a fee.

At the YMCA of Anderson, you and your family can join us and swim, jog, exercise, play racquetball, lift weights, take saunas and whirlpools, and enjoy dozens of other exciting physical activities.
And we have more to offer, including: childcare, youth sports and teen leadership programs. Our programs are designed to bring siblings closer together, build new relationships, strengthen family bonds, and lead to a healthier lifestyle.

Additionally, all members of the YMCA are automatically enrolled in the A.W.A.Y. (Always Welcome at YMCAs) program. When you travel and want to workout or use the services at a YMCA in another city (outside of the upstate SC area), you may do so on a short-term basis by showing your YMCA (A.W.A.Y.) membership card. (Note: This program is not valid within the South Carolina upstate service area.)
