CONDITIONS OF MEMBERSHIP
I understand that all members are required to present a valid membership card for identification when using YMCA facilities and/or participating in programs. If for any reason members are unable to present membership cards, they are required to present photo identification. Membership cards are not transferable; remain the property of the YMCA; and must be returned to the YMCA upon request. The YMCA conducts regular sex offender screenings on all members, participants and guests. If a sex offender match occurs, the YMCA reserves the right to cancel membership, end program participation, and remove visitation access. Monthly membership drafts continue indefinitely unless members provide written notice of cancellation, or the YMCA terminates the membership. Annual memberships must be renewed.
I understand that I will be automatically transferred into a new membership category on my birthday, if I am eligible, in which event dues may increase or decrease. In the event of any other qualifying event that changes the category of membership for which I am eligible, I agree to notify the YMCA on or before the first day of the month following the month in which such event occurs.

In the event I, my spouse/partner or minor children bring any guest to the YMCA of Metropolitan Washington facility or Activity, I also agree to be responsible for ensuring that such guests adhere to the rules and policies of the YMCA and to inform them that they assume all liability for injuries, illness, death, loss or damage which may result from participation in any activities, programs, exercise or the use of any equipment. By participating in the YMCA Nationwide Membership Program, I agree to release the National Council of Young Men’s Christian Associations of the United States of America, and its independent and autonomous member associations in the United States and Puerto Rico, from claims of negligence for bodily injury or death in connection with the use of YMCA facilities, and from any liability for other claims, including loss of property, to the fullest extent of the law.
