Membership Reciprocity Program


The Y movement is for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.  We want to encourage members to utilize the Y as often as they can.  Sometimes, it’s more convenient for members to utilize a Y in a different location when traveling, near a workplace or in another region.  Now, full facility/full privilege YMCA members have the flexibility to use other Y facilities throughout Ohio at no extra charge.


Simply present your active YMCA membership card and photo ID at any participating Ohio YMCA and enjoy free access.  See important Program Details below.


  • The Reciprocal Membership Program is valid for YMCA full facility/full privilege members only.
  • Program-only participants may upgrade to a full membership at any time to qualify.
  • Silver Sneakers members may use other Silver Sneakers locations at any time.  The Auglaize Mercer Family YMCA is NOT a Silver Sneakers location.
  • Visitors to other Ys must present a valid YMCA membership card and photo ID upon the first visit and complete a visiting member waiver or standard membership application form with liability waiver.
  • YMCA full facility/full privilege members must use their home branch at least 50% of the time.
  • YMCA Member Service & Program discounts do not apply.
  • Participating YMCAs reserve the right to restrict facility or program access.
  • Other restrictions may apply.

Ambassador Program

Our YMCA Leadership recognizes that you are our most valuable asset to this organization. You are an ambassador for the YMCA. Who better  than you, knows the advantages of being a YMCA member? Who better than you  can tell the story to your friends, neighbors, and colleagues? And who better  than you can get them to join you as a member of the Auglaize/Mercer Counties  YMCA.

For  every new YMCA membership you bring in to the Auglaize/Mercer Counties YMCA,  you will get a refund back to you,  equal to one month of your own YMCA  membership rate. For example, if you bring in a friend and he/she joins the Auglaize/Mercer Counties YMCA as either an Adult  or a Family member. You will be refunded the value of one month of your own Auglaize/Mercer  Counties YMCA membership. Talk to our staff at the YMCA Desk to get all the  details.
