Members may put their membership on hold for up to four (4) consecutive months during a calendar year for major medical reasons with a doctor's excuse, a family emergency or if leaving the area for an extended period of time (snowbird). Membership privileges are revoked while your membership is on hold. Your draft will restart automatically after the hold. Stop by the Member Services desk at your local Y or complete the below form. All holds require a 15-day notice to the YMCA.
