Membership Check In
Each adult Y Member will receive a key card to scan at the Front Desk each time you visit any Lincoln YMCA. (Family members age 9 and older may receive their own key card, if this works best for your family.)
You can even use your smartphone as your key card, if you wish. To do this, take a photo of your barcode and scan the photo when you enter, or download a key tag app.
Guest Pass Policy
As a member of the Lincoln YMCA, you are welcome to bring a guest as often as you wish. Each of your non-member guests may use the facility, free of charge, up to three times before joining or paying a day fee. Youth guests must be accompanied by an adult member, age 19 or older. At certain times during the holiday season (Thanksgiving and Christmas), members may also bring relatives in to use the facilities.

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. Members also put weights back to their original locations and place dirty towels in the towel drops located around the facilities.
Your correct email address is essential for us to communicate with you regarding upcoming events, member specials, new classes, offerings and more. We also send out a monthly member e-newsletter to keep you updated on the countless happenings at the Y as well as the work we're doing in the community. We do limit emails to one to two per month in respect for your time and inbox. If you haven't received an email from us in a while or if you are having trouble registering for a program online, please check with the Front Desk to ensure we have your correct email address.
Annual Campaign - Strong Kids
The Lincoln YMCA conducts an Annual Campaign to raise money to provide Y membership and program assistance to youth and families in the community who cannot afford to pay full fees. Please consider a donation when a YMCA volunteer contacts you; or volunteer, donate or participate in one of the many fundraising events we hold throughout the year.
