Membership Payment

Bank Draft - An easy way to pay as you go!  Your bank account is debited once per month.  People wishing to start or stop their drafts can do so by completing forms at the membership desk.  Bank draft memberships remain in effect until the Y has received a written request from the member to terminate the membership agreement.  Notifications must be received five days prior to the scheduled draft.

Drafts returned to the Y as “Stop Payment” or “Account Closed” will result in immediate termination.  Drafts returned for any other reason must be paid within two weeks of notification or membership will be terminated.

Bank draft memberships are perpetual with no expiration date.  Members can choose to draft on the 1st or 15th of the month.

Annual Payment - Dues may be paid in full upon joining and yearly thereafter.  Payment is accepted via cash, check, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express.
Regardless of termination date, annual memberships are non-refundable.
