we’re here for you

In 2018, the YMCA of Southern Arizona became one of 19 Armed Services YMCA Affiliates because of our continued commitment to giving back to US Servicemen and women. We are committed to providing our military families with scholarships and opportunities to participate in youth development and health and well-being programs.


The Y is proud to give thanks to all who serve and provide a place where everyone belongs. For all who serve or have served our country, the YMCA is happy to waive our enrollment fee when you join. Just present your Military ID to the Member Service Desk when you join.


We’re happy to offer those currently serving (Active Duty, Guard, and Reserve) and their families reduced membership rates based on their pay grade. As a YMCA member you will enjoy a wide range of benefits throughout the year—including savings of more than 50% on most programs.
