Joining the YMCA is simple!  You can purchase a membership online.  Just click on "Register Online/Y Account" at the top right-hand corner of the page to purchase a membership.  If you feel that you are eligible for a discounted membership, you will need to come to the branch to purchase your membership.  If you would prefer, you can visit either of our two branches.  We would be happy to give you a tour of the facility and answer any questions about how membership in the YMCA can benefit you and your family. 



  • That the Y should be an organization where individuals can belong through all phases of their life.  Our goal is to maintain long-term relationships with our members. 
  • It should be easy for families to come to the Y together and leave together, better than they came in.
  • Better families make better communities.

It is the philosophy of the YMCA to provide services for ANY person who desires to participate and understands the benefits of the YMCA, regardless of ability to pay.  The Southington-Cheshire Community YMCAs is a charitable, nonprofit organization, whose purpose is to improve the quality of life for individuals and families in our community by promoting the physical, mental and spiritual health of people of all ages. One of the reasons the Y is so special is that it’s for everyone.  No one will be turned away because of their inability to pay (subject to the availability of funds).


The Y is made up of people of all ages and from every walk of life working side by side to strengthen communities.  Together we work to ensure that everyone, regardless of ability, age, cultural background, ethnicity, faith, gender, gender identity, ideology, income, national origin, race or sexual orientation has the opportunity to reach their full potential with dignity.  Our core values are caring, honesty, respect and responsibility – they guide everything we do.
