What's the YMCA all about?

We build strong kids, strong families, strong communities!

  • No Contracts (all we ask is 10 days written notice)!
  • Our reputation precedes us . . . the Memphis YMCA was organized in 1855 in a room rented over a store at 303 Main Street in Downtown Memphis.
  • You can belong to each and every YMCA in Memphis & Shelby County and over 2,500 in the United States (YMCA AWAY program A=Always; W=Welcome; A=At; Y=YMCA)!
  • Discounted member rates for programs (i.e. childcare, swim lessons, personal trainers, etc.)
  • Year-around swimming at most YMCA's in Memphis
  • Free fitness assessment
  • Blood pressure taken at any time by fitness staff
  • State-of-the-art fitness equipment.
  • Well-trained fitness staff.
  • Historically, the YMCA is the nation's leading childcare provider.
  • We offer financial assistance (we don't turn anyone away because of inability to pay)!
