Nationwide Membership enables you to visit any participating YMCA in the United States through membership at the YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas. We offer this because we want to help you reach your health and wellness goals wherever you live, work, or travel. This is an essential part of our mission to strengthen communities.
Nationwide Membership - Frequently Asked Questions
What is Nationwide Membership?

You will sign a waiver to use their location. This waiver is required for you to be granted access in other Ys, and only needs to be completed once.
