Thank You

To our valued members,

I want to personally thank you for making the choice to be a member of our association. As a member of the Lincoln YMCA, you and your family are a part of something truly unique, something so much larger than the group exercise class you attend or the swim lesson your little one frequents. You are part of a cause—developing our youth, promoting holistic health and wellness, and giving back and supporting our community. Thank you, each and every one of you, for your membership; your support accomplishes more in our community than you realize.

Barbara A. Bettin

Towels And Lockers

As a service to our members, we provide towels free of charge. To help us conserve precious environmental resources and allow more of our funds to support our community, we ask that each member use one shower towel per visit. You can ask for a towel when you check in at the Front Desk and place used towels in collection bins throughout the facilities.

Lockers of various sizes are available for use while you are working out. Remember to bring a lock (or request to purchase one at the Front Desk). We recommend you leave valuables at home. Some facilities offer lockers for rent for a monthly fee, simply ask the Front Desk for more information and if rental is available at your Y.

Workout Area And Cardio Equipment Etiquette

As a courtesy to others, wipe off equipment after use. You'll find towels and spray located throughout the facility. Please be sure to put weights back to their original locations and place dirty towels in the towel drops located throughout the facilities.

Email Address

Your correct email address is essential for us to communicate with you regarding upcoming events, member specials, new classes, offerings and more.

Membership Holds and Cancellations

Membership Holds and Cancellations
Membership Holds and Cancellations


We understand life happens, so we offer holds to your YMCA membership if the need arises. If you have a monthly bank draft or credit/debit card draft membership, it may be placed on hold for a minimum of one month and a maximum of three consecutive months once during a 12-month period. Your account must have a zero balance to be eligible to be put on hold/freeze. Your YMCA membership and drafts will automatically resume at the end of the Hold Agreement.

Please visit the Front Desk of any Lincoln YMCA facility at least 5 business days prior to the end of the month to place your membership on hold. Annual and payroll deduction payment-type memberships are not eligible for the hold/freeze option.


We would be very sad to see you go, however if you choose to cancel your membership, please visit the Front Desk of any Lincoln YMCA facility to complete a cancellation form at least 5 business days prior to the end of the month (or by the 15th of the month if you have payroll deduction) to allow sufficient time to cancel your automatic bank/credit card draft.

You will be charged for your membership the first of each month until a written notice is received. Not using your membership does not constitute a cancellation.
