Membership Holds

Monthly membership fees may be put on hold for medical, travel or personal emergency reasons for 1-3 months each calendar year.  Hold requests must be made 30 days in advance. If you’d like to place your membership on hold, please complete and sign our hold form.

Returned Payments

Effective July 1, 2020, the YMCA introduced a new automated service to help manage payment returns. With this service, members may receive messages to update account information on the YMCA’s behalf. A $30 return fee will be added for membership payments that decline/return for insufficient funds. Because of this, please be mindful of your draft date to prevent any unwanted overdraft fees.

Membership Cancellations

You may cancel your YMCA membership at any time with a written 30-day notice. Should you decide to part ways with the YMCA, we ask that you please complete and sign the YMCA Cancellation Form.

Membership Refunds

Should you decide to cancel your membership with the YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth, we will happily refund the unused portion of any membership dues paid by annual invoice or stop the automatic withdrawal from your bank account upon request.

Joining fees are non-refundable.  We are unable to refund membership fees due to lack of use or non-attendance.  Please monitor your monthly bank statement for discrepancies.  Should you discover an error on our part and report it within 60 days, we will correct our error and refund the appropriate amount.  There will be no refund of erroneous payments after 60 days.

Membership Changes

You may need to change your membership for several different reasons:  adding a child, removing a grown child, a change of address, change of bank account, etc.  Should you need to change any of your membership information, please complete a simple YMCA Change Form at your local YMCA Member Service desk.

We ask individuals to act in a manner that upholds these principles at all times when they are in our facility or participating in our programs. We expect those using the YMCA to behave in a way that show respect and caring for others, which includes not using any language or engaging in any action that can hurt or frighten another person or that falls below a generally accepted standard of conduct. Specifically, actions not adhering to these guidelines and are not permitted include:

  • Wearing inappropriate attire. Attire must be appropriate, including swimsuits only in the pool area, and shoes, shorts and shirts or leotard in other areas of the facility. Clothing with vulgar or profane writing or language is not allowed.
  • Using angry or vulgar language including swearing, name-calling or shouting.
  • Making physical contact with a person in any angry or threatening way.
  • Engaging in sexual activity or contact with another person.
  • Harassing or intimidating by words, gestures, body language or any other menacing behavior.
  • Stealing or other behavior, which results in the destruction of property.

Members and guests are encouraged to be responsible for their personal comfort and safety, and to ask any person whose behavior threatens their comfort to refrain from doing so.

The YMCA reserves the right to suspend or revoke program or membership privileges of members whose behavior is deemed inappropriate or detrimental to the well-being of members or staff. A member whose membership has been suspended or terminated may appeal the decision in writing to the Board of Directors.
