Members 13 and older are issued membership ID tags upon joining. Your membership tag is your key to The Family YMCA of Southeast Mississippi. We ask that you present your YMCA ID to Member Service each time you enter either facility. If you cannot locate your YMCA ID, you will be required to produce a picture ID (driver's license or school ID with photo, etc.) to enter the facility. However, this is only a temporary means to enter. If your YMCA ID is not located in a reasonable amount of time, you will be required to purchase another YMCA ID for $5.
Method of Payment Options:
- Bank Draft - A continuous membership that does not expire. This convenient method consists of a monthly draft from your checking account. Some banks will permit a draft from a savings account.
- Annual or Semi-Annual Payment - Dues may be paid annually or semi-annually and renewed each year thereafter. Payment may be made with cash, check or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or American Express). This option offers a 10% discount.
Joining fees are used to purchase new equipment and facility enhancement. The joining fee is a one-time fee provided your membership remains current. Should your membership payment lapse more than one year; a reactivation fee will be charged. Memberships can be upgraded to another category without paying an additional joining fee.
The YMCA reserves the right to change membership fees with 30 days written notice to members. A fee will be charged for all returned checks and bank drafts.
