I will need child care while I work out. What does the Y offer?

Our center offers child care through our Kids Zone program. Kids Zone is free of charge with your household membership for your child ages 3 months to 8 years old. Care is available for up to two hours while you are in the Y facility. Your child will be engaged in active play during their time in Kids Zone. We put safety first with a sign-in and sign-out procedure practiced at all times.

Does my child need to wear a personal flotation device in the pool?

All children 14 years and younger are required to pass a swim test before being allowed to be in a YMCA of Greater Kansas City pool without a personal flotation device or without direct adult supervision. Children 9 years and older can use the pool independently without a parent if they pass a test but children 8 years and younger who pass the test must still have a parent present in the pool area. A parent needs to remain in the building.

I'm visiting from out of town. Can I use my Y membership from another Y at your facility?

Yes. Our Y participates in the Y AWAY (Always Welcome at the Y) program, which allows Y members from across the country to use our Y up to 10 times in a calendar year without a fee. 

Can I purchase a day pass to use the facility?

Yes. You can pay our daily use fee at the Welcome Center and access everything our Y has to offer for the entire day.

How much does membership cost?

We believe the opportunity for good health should be available to all people. We offer membership rates that take into consideration your household size, age and more. Use our Rate Calculator to find the monthly membership option that fits your needs.
