Step 2 - Membership Policies
- You must present your membership card each time you enter a YMCA Family Center. If you do not have your membership card, a valid form of identification with picture and date of birth is required. A $1 fee will be charged for each replacement/lost membership card.
- The join fee is non-refundable and non-transferable. If a membership has lapsed for more than 30 days, the full join fee must be paid upon return.
- Monthly membership draft fees are non-refundable regardless of use of any YMCA facility and/or program.
- Bank drafts are continuous every month, regardless of use of any YMCA Family Center. If for any reason your bank or credit card draft is returned, a $25.00 service fee will be added for each returned transaction. The Arlington-Mansfield Area YMCA is not responsible for any collection fees assessed by individual banking/credit card centers.
- Bank draft membership cancellations must be submitted IN PERSON to a YMCA Family Center 30 DAYS PRIOR TO THE NEXT BANK DRAFT DATE. Failure to do so will result in that month's draft being non-refundable. Cancellations via fax, phone, mail, or email are not permitted.
- Pre-paid memberships are non-transferable and the membership must be renewed within 30 days of expiring to avoid paying a join fee.
- To ensure immediate changes to your membership account, please submit the appropriate form for all requests at least 14 DAYS prior to the date of your next draft. Failure to do so will result in the changes not being effective until the following draft date.
- Rates are subject to change with a 30-day written notice.
I HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE ARLINGTON-MANSFIELD AREA YMCA'S MEMBERSHIP POLICIES AND AGREE TO ABIDE BY ALL POLICIES AND PROCEDURES SET FORTH.
Step 3 - Financial Information
I authorize my bank to honor pre-authorized drafts drawn by the Arlington-Mansfield Area YMCA for membership payments and/or contributions. It is understood that my draft membership will be continuous until after written notification has been received by the Arlington-Mansfield Area YMCA. When the bank honors the draft by charging my account, such drafts constitute my receipt of the payment. If your draft is returned, it will be collected electronically and your account will be charged for the amount of the draft plus a collection fee of $25. If the draft is unable to be collected, it is understood that payment is to be made by me in the amount of said payment plus service charge.

Step 5 - Arlington-Mansfield Area YMCA Code of Conduct
The Arlington-Mansfield Area YMCA (YMCA) is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for all members and guests. To that end, we ask individuals to act appropriately at all times while in the facility or participating in YMCA programs.
Specifically, this includes refraining from: physical contact with another person in an angry or threatening way and/or any demonstration of sexual or sexually suggestive activity or sexual contact with another person, harassment or intimidation by words, gestures, body language or any other menacing behavior, theft or behavior which results in the destruction of property, using or possessing firearms, illegal chemicals, alcohol, or objects, which may be used as weapons on YMCA property, in YMCA vehicles, or at YMCA sponsored events or programs, and any other conduct of an inappropriate, threatening or offensive nature.
Members and guests should not hesitate to notify staff personnel if they witness inappropriate behavior or activity.
In order to carry out these policies, we ask that YMCA members and guests identify themselves to staff when asked to do so. YMCA management will investigate all reported incidents. Violations of this code of conduct may result in suspension or termination of membership privileges, as determined by the YMCA staff. Decisions made by YMCA staff regarding YMCA facilities, membership, Code of Conduct and guidelines are final.
