Guest Pass Policy

At the Y, your friends are our friends. If you know someone who could benefit from the Y the way you have, bring them along as a guest.

Please remember that our first priority is to serve our members, who have made a commitment to the Y by joining. Our guest policy is intended to enhance member service to current members who are encouraging a friend to join. It also accommodates out-of-town family and friends of current members.

Adult YMCA of Greater Syracuse members (18+) are welcome to bring guests under the following conditions:

  • Members are responsible for the behavior of their guests.
  • Members must accompany guests at all times during their visit.
  • Adult guests must present a valid picture I.D. for each visit and sign a liability waiver form upon entering the Y
  • There is a one guest limit per member, per visit.
  • Each local guest may visit the facility twice. To visit more, guests must become members. All YMCA of Greater Syracuse branches are part of one association, so a visit to one location counts as a visit to all branches.
  • Out-of-town guests are not required to join after two visits if they provide proof of residency.
  • During high facility usage, the Y may limit the number of guests permitted in the facility.
