Y Vets Membership

We salute our military heroes and aim to remove barriers to membership for veterans who are disabled. 

Y Vets is a program for service connected disabled veterans who can benefit from rehabilitative exercise, but are not able to afford the expense of a full health facility membership.

Y Vets program is open to those who have served our country and have received a service connected disability rating through the VBA Regional Office.

The YMCA, in cooperation with Operation Fallen Flags™ and Memorial Hall, offers a Y Vets membership at a reduced rate to help remove barriers to pursuing a healthy lifestyle. Y Vets program is open to all honorably discharged disabled veterans.

Y Vets members have access to the SwedishAmerican Riverfront YMCA, Northeast Family YMCA, and Puri Family YMCA which includes:

Warm Water Pool (SwedishAmerican Riverfront & Northeast location only)
Lap Pool/Lap Lanes (SwedishAmerican Riverfront & Northeast location only)
Strength and Cardio Centers
Wellness Coaching
Indoor Track (SwedishAmerican Riverfront location only)
