The YMCA of Northwest North Carolina is committed to serving as many members in our Triad community as possible. In addition, our facilities offer specific programs, classes and services to our members that can vary from branch to branch. To find out the monthly membership dues at the branch in which you have an interest, please visit the Membership pages of our branch sites:

Prospective members can download a membership application; for the application in Spanish click here. Bringing in a completed form will expedite the joining process and save you a few minutes. If you would like for your membership to be debited directly from your checking account, please make sure to also bring in a voided check along with your application. Please note that deposit tickets are not accepted in lieu of checks.

If you think you might qualify for financial assistance, please feel free to familiarize yourself with our Open Doors program, which helps the YMCA ensure that no one is turned away from our programs or membership due to an inability to pay.
