SERVING OUR COMMUNITY FOR OVER 100 YEARS! • YMCA OF BRISTOL

We know wellness when we experience it. It's an overall feeling of health and wholeness. A sense of belonging. The energy to live our fullest life. The desire to continually learn new things and improve our skills. And the chance to contribute and help someone else.

YMCA of Bristol Membership

Your YMCA membership is good at the Y of Bristol and every Y in Tennessee and Virginia. For more information, see “My Y is every Y in Tennessee & Virginia” below. Active memberships may be used to participate in member services or programs at member rates. (Benefits cannot be purchased for a nonmember). Rates and schedules are subject to change. A membership card is issued to every member 12 years old and older. A Membership Card is required for admittance to the facility.







Join the YMCA

When you join the Y, you belong to a community of men, women and children who strive every day to be healthy, confident, and connected.

The Y works as a cause for strengthening community. That's why we're all here working with you every day, making sure that you, your family and community have the resources and support you need to learn, grow, and thrive.

The Y has a focus on developing the potential of kids, improving individual health and well-being, and giving back and supporting our neighbors. Your membership will bring about meaningful change not just within yourself, but in your community too.


Advantages of Belonging

  • Parents find a safe, positive atmosphere for children to learn good values, social skills, and behaviors.
  • Families come together to have fun and spend quality time with each other.
  • Children and teens play, learn who they are and what they can achieve, and are personally accepted.
  • Adults connect with friends, pursue interests, and learn how to live healthier.
  • Communities thrive because neighbors support each other and give back.
  • We all build relationships that further our sense of belonging and purpose.
