The Y in Pasadena

The partial list of policies below help ensure that everyone who enters our center has a positive Y experience. For full details and policies, please refer to our Member Handbook.

Guest Policy (partial) Specific to the Y in Pasadena for Memorial Day-Labor Day: Monday-Friday

A member may bring in a guest. The first visit will be complimentary, all visits thereafter will be $10. Each person listed on the membership will be allowed to bring one guest.


One guest per membership will be permitted to use the center during the weekend hours. The pricing will be the same as during the week. We will not permit outside guests to use the facility without being accompanied by a paying member between Memorial Day - Labor Day. Our first priority is to serve our members. The purpose of our guest policy is to enhance services to current members who are encouraging a friend to join. We will make reasonable accommodations for members of other Ys traveling in our area, for out of town family of current members and for out of town visitors. Centers may restrict guest usage, hours of usage and area of usage with or without notice to ensure the safety and comfort of members. We highly encourage members to contact the Y prior to visiting with a guest to inquire about any guest restrictions due to demands on the center.

Guests under age 18 must have a parent/guardian sign them in on their first visit. Guests under age 13 must be accompanied by an adult at all times during their visit.

  • One complimentary visit per person, per year (Jan 1—Dec 31) when accompanied by a current member

Nationwide Membership

When you join the Y, you become part of a national movement of 18.1 million members in more than 2,400 Ys. Because each Y is autonomous, not-for-profit, and not a franchise, local policies vary on the use of equipment, facilities and services by visiting Y members. If you plan to visit another Y, please call that Y regarding visiting member policies. General guidelines for Y Members outside of the Y in Central Maryland:

  • Guest must maintain a majority of their visits (in a month) at their hometown Y.
  • No additional charges for visit.
  • Use of facilities, services, and equipment are included; however, discounts on programs and services may vary.
  • All Y in Central Maryland locations are part of one association; therefore, a visit to one location counts as a visit to all Central Maryland locations.
