Got questions about Y membership? Start here:


Do you offer reduced rates?

Membership and program financial assistance is available through the Open Doors Financial Assistance Program

Do you have corporate rates?

We welcome Corporate Memberships and have a variety of strong Lincoln partners. Learn more on our Corporate and Group Memberships page.

Can I pay cash instead of automatic debit?

We accept cash payment in advance for a 12-month period. To pay your membership dues monthly, we automatically debit from a bank account, or any major credit card account on the first of each month.

How do I become a member?

Join Online or stop by any Lincoln YMCA location. You will need to pay for your first month and joining fee. Fees will be drafted the first of each month from your bank account or credit card.

Do I have to sign a long-term contract?

We never require a contract at the YMCA. All memberships are on month-to-month terms.

Can I visit other YMCAs?

Yes. Nationwide Membership enables you to visit any participating YMCA in the United States through membership at your home YMCA. We offer this 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.


Please note that during the COVID-19 pandemic, Nationwide Membership will be suspended.

Can I bring guests?

Yes. We encourage our members to introduce their friends, family, and colleagues to the YMCA. Each guest must accompany a Lincoln Y member, 19 years or older. Each guest can receive three free visits to the Lincoln Y and must show a photo ID to check in.


Please note that during the COVID-19 pandemic, guests will not be allowed in YMCA of Lincoln facilities.

What are your hours?

Hours vary by location and can be found on each facility location page. Holiday hours can be found here as well.

Do you have lockers?

Will someone assist me with my workout?

Sure! Our fitness staff and certified personal trainers are available for a variety of wellness services including fitness assessments, equipment orientations, help with individualized routines, and ongoing personal training sessions. Ask YMCA staff about fees for ongoing training.
