Nationwide Membership


Your Valparaiso YMCA key tag is your passport to YMCAs across the nation and around the world. You can locate a YMCA near your destination by logging on at or inquire at the Y Courtesy Desk. Nationwide Membership participation varies from Y to Y throughout the country, so please phone ahead for information.  


Traveling? Commuting? We want you to take advantage of the Y werever you live, work or travel.

With Nationwide Membership, you have the flexibility to use participating Y facilities across the United States at no extra charge.

This enables you as a Y member to

  • reach your health and wellness goals wherever you live, work, or travel; and
  • connect with the larger Y community in meaningful ways.

How does it work? If you plan to visit another YMCA...

  • Stop in anytime starting October 30th at the Y Courtesy Desk and sign a Nationwide Membership waiver.
  • When you visit any participating YMCA across the nation, your key tag from the Valparaiso Family YMCA will scan at those locations.
  • You will need to maintain your active membership at the Valparaiso Family YMCA and use your home facility at least 50% of the time.

Enjoy the convenience and support in your health journey!
