FAQs

Our members only policy is temporary due to current COVID-19 restrictions.  We are not honoring guest passes at this time to be able to keep the building’s capacity lower to allow for social distancing inside.  We are closely monitoring local health and state guidelines and will announce when guest passes will be once again honored at the YMCA.  In the future, Marion residents will be able to purchase unlimited guest passes as a perk to Marion residents in partnership with the city.

Yes, Marion residents will receive a 10% discount when joining the YMCA (cannot be combined with other discounts).  To prove residency, we ask that individuals bring a photo ID.  If your photo ID does not have your updated address, we will require a utility bill.  This discount is limited to residents of 52302 ONLY in partnership with the City of Marion’s large contribution to the project.
