Join Crossroads YMCA this October and save on your joiner’s fee! Each day, the joiner’s fee amount goes up…so take advantage of this promotion as soon as you can.

Many people think of the Y and think of a gym, but we’re far more than that. We are a resource for healthy families. We are a teacher of youth sports. We are a stress relief at the end of a long day. We are an inspiration, a monitor of health and a place where you’ll make true friends. 

Yes, we offer lots of physical exercise but you’ll find much more behind our doors. You don’t just join the Y--you belong here.

Become a member because you receive:

  • Programs and services for the whole family—from 3 months old to seniors. We’re family friendly.
  • Reduced program fees for youth and adult sports, preschool, camp, classes, personal training and other events.
  • Full access to Crossroads’ four facilities during all open hours.
  • Early registration for all programs.
  • Free group fitness classes (land, water and group cycling)
  • Free childcare for children while parents are exercising. Services provided for children ages 3 months to 5 years; weekday evening childcare for kids 6-11 years.*
  • Affordable rates–Crossroads YMCA has the best YMCA membership rates in Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana

Join one of our four YMCA locations today!

Indiana Reciprocity
The Y movement is for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We want to encourage members to utilize the Y as often as they can. Sometimes, it’s more convenient for members to utilize a Y in a different location when traveling, near a workplace or in another region. Now, full facility/full privilege YMCA members have the flexibility to use other Y facilities throughout the state, at no extra charge. Did you know? AWAY access is available at 2,000 Ys throughout the country.
