We're a Community, Not Just a "Gym & Swim"

SilverSneakers® & Silver&Fit®

SilverSneakers and Silver&Fit are fun, energizing programs that help older adults stay fit and take greater control of their health by encouraging physical activity. Between both of our branches, we offer group exercise classes, aerobic and resistance classes in our pool, as well as monthly social events plus other special events.

Retired State of Connecticut employees are now eligible for SilverSneakers in 2018, so stop by either branch to sign up. Not a CT employee? Don’t worry! Many insurance companies will pay for either of these programs and give you a FREE Association membership to the Y.

Not sure if you qualify? Give us a call at 203.269.4497 or bring your Medicare supplemental card & insurance card to either Welcome Center. For more details, email Sally Darrow, Senior Director of Membership & Wellness, or call 203.269.3348 x202.

What is Membership for All

The Wallingford Family YMCA believes in providing membership and program services to all who desire to participate. The YMCA’s Membership for All program, supported by our annual Community Support Campaign, uses all available resources to provide support to those who have financial need and qualify for assistance.

Who is Eligible for Membership for All?

Anyone may apply for financial assistance who lives or works in our service area. Approval of the application is made on an individual basis.

Is it Possible to Join the YMCA for Free?

The YMCA believes a strong sense of ownership and pride is developed when the financial assistance recipient contributes to the cost of their YMCA involvement. Therefore, applicants will be asked to pay a portion of the fee for the requested service.

How will the Financial Assistance Amount be Determined and How Quickly can I Expect to Receive Financial Assistance?

Scholarships are determined on an individual basis using a sliding-fee scale based on total household income and number of dependents. The scale assists the Finance Department in determining the amount of scholarship awarded and its applicable time frame. Once the financial assistance application and required documents have been submitted, the YMCA will contact you within four weeks to share the outcome of your application.

How Long will the Financial Assistance Continue?

Need for financial assistance is assessed at the time of request and reviewed on a regular basis.

Who will be Reviewing my Application?

The Executive Director and the Finance Department are the only people who will review your application. All information is handled confidentially.
