Please be on time for your reservation or your spot may be given away.

If there are spots available but I don’t have a reservation for one, can I still attend?

What if my membership is expired or not current?
You must be an active member of our association to reserve a spot, any expired membership, non-member or nationwide member who makes an appointment will need to take a new active membership with the Rockland County YMCA to use the facility.
