Member Handbook and Privacy Policy

The Member Handbook contains useful information and policies relating to our YMCA. Please read the member handbook here.  The Ashland Family YMCA is very concerned about the privacy of its members, employees and volunteers and maintains personal information in confidence.

Silver&Fit Benefits

The Ashland YMCA is happy to offer the benefits of Silver&Fit, a fitness and healthy aging program designed to help you achieve better health through regular exercise. Silver&Fit is offered through many insurance plans and covers membership fees in full for older adults of Medicare age and up. To learn more, contact your insurance agent or click here for a list of local plans offering this benefit. If you have one of the plans listed, give the Ashland YMCA a call to see if you qualify at 541-482-9622.

Class Registration

Pre-registration is required for all classes with a special starting date. Fees must be paid in full at the time of registration. There will be no refunds after the second class session. Some classes have limited enrollment - early registration is recommended.

Financial Assistance

We count on the generosity of our members and donors to support the Y's scholarship program, which focuses on children and teens and provides financial assistance, on a sliding scale fee, to those in times of hardship. Gifts to the scholarship fund make a huge difference in the lives of kids in our community. Every dollar donated goes directly to scholarships that send less fortunate kids to camp, teach them water safety and the joy of swimming, and allow them to learn and grow in the Y's after-school programs, sports leagues, and gymnastics classes while building self-esteem and developing the core Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

We accept donations online, by check, or using Visa and Mastercard. We are also happy to take donation payments in quarterly or monthly installments.

If you feel that you qualify for assistance this year, contact the Y.  Assistance may also depend on the availability of funds.

We Welcome Volunteers!

Our volunteers work in programs, lead classes, act as greeters and help raise funds to support our work. Pick up an application at the front desk and join us!

Termination for Cause

All members are subject to termination for cause. Examples are transferring of membership cards; verbal, physical, or sexual harassment toward any YMCA member, guest, or employee; illegal or unsafe acts; or violation of membership policies. The YMCA reserves the right to refuse service to a member or guest.

Facility Closures

Please note that the entire YMCA will be closed on the following dates:  New Years Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day. Additional closure dates may be necessary for building maintenance or repairs. Your low monthly membership fee takes these closures into account.
