Membership Reciprocity Program


Nationwide Membership enables you to visit any participating YMCA in the United States through membership at your “home” YMCA (your home Y is the local association that enrolled you as a member and collects your membership dues). We offer this because we want to help you reach your health and wellness goals wherever you live, work or travel.  This is an essential part of our mission to strengthen communities.


Simply present your active YMCA membership card and photo ID at any participating  YMCA and enjoy free access.  See important Program Details below.


  • The Reciprocal Membership Program is valid for YMCA full facility/full privilege members only.
  • Program-only participants may upgrade to a full membership at any time to qualify.
  • Silver Sneakers members may use other Silver Sneakers locations at any time.  The Auglaize Mercer Family YMCA is a Silver Sneakers location.
  • Visitors to other Ys must present a valid YMCA membership card and photo ID upon the first visit and complete a visiting member waiver or standard membership application form with liability waiver.
  • YMCA full facility/full privilege members must use their home branch at least 50% of the time.
  • YMCA Member Service & Program discounts do not apply.
  • Participating YMCAs reserve the right to restrict facility or program access.
  • Other restrictions may apply.

Ambassador Program

Our YMCA Leadership recognizes that you are our most valuable asset to this organization. You are an ambassador for the YMCA. Who better  than you, knows the advantages of being a YMCA member? Who better than you  can tell the story to your friends, neighbors, and colleagues? And who better  than you can get them to join you as a member of the Auglaize/Mercer Counties  YMCA.

For  every new YMCA membership you bring in to the Auglaize/Mercer Counties YMCA,  you will get a refund back to you,  equal to one month of your own YMCA  membership rate. For example, if you bring in a friend and he/she joins the Auglaize/Mercer Counties YMCA as either an Adult  or a Family member. You will be refunded the value of one month of your own Auglaize/Mercer  Counties YMCA membership. Talk to our staff at the YMCA Desk to get all the  details.
