Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if I can't afford the membership fee?
Assisted Memberships are available to those individuals and families that are unable, not un-willing, to pay the full fee for a YMCA general membership. Anyone interested in applying for an assisted membership can call or drop in to the YMCA. To apply for an INDIVIDUAL assisted membership, bring in a proof of automatic subsidy (AISH card, Alberta Works card, a letter from an approved organization). To apply for a FAMILY membership, please request the low income assistance chart to see if you will qualify and bring in proof of income (bank statement, paystubs, child tax information). Please contact us at 403-327-9622 if you require more information.
Do you offer child care while I exercise?
Absolutely! We have a child minding space that allows you to participate in a fitness program while we watch your children in a safe and fun environment. Cost is $5.00 per hour/per child for non-members or guests and $4.00 for members per hour/per child.
Can I bring a guest with me?
You can bring 10 guests per year with your individual membership, and 4 guests per person under a family membership. They may also attend our programs and fitness classes with their guest pass.
Can I visit a YMCA Centre for just a day?
YES! You can buy a day pass for $10.00 per visit. That way, you will be considered a member for the day and can participate in as many programs as you like! You can even leave and come back later in the day!
What do I need to know when I come to the facility to workout?

All members are expected to share the space while working out. Remember to always wipe down your equipment when you are done your workout, using the wipes provided. Appropriate clean shoes are required. No bare feet or socks for safety and hygienic reasons. Please do not wear midriff baring shirts or inappropriate logos or texts on clothing. Please do not drop or slam your weights and put your equipment away when you are done. Cell phones are not permitted within the change rooms or washrooms for the privacy of all users.

I'm new to exercise - How do I learn to use the equipment at the YMCA?
New members are encouraged to participate in a wellness orientation with our certified Fitness staff at no extra charge.
