Staff reserves the right to determine standards for acceptable behavior on the YMCA premises. Violation of these standards can result in suspension or withdrawal of membership privileges at the discretion of the Executive Director, the Membership Committee, or the Board of Directors. In the event of a dismissal from a program or the YMCA due to disciplinary action, membership dues will not be refunded.

VIDEO RECORDING DEVICES
The YMCA has cameras placed throughout our facility for security reasons. Video recorders, cameras, or any other visual recording devices are not allowed within the YMCA locker rooms. Most mobile phones now have the capability to take pictures and/or videos as well. Please be aware if someone has a device of this nature pointed in your direction. Please report any incident of this nature immediately to a YMCA staff member.
Anyone caught taking pictures of another person without their permission and knowledge will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law by the YMCA and may lead to the termination of their membership. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
SEX OFFENDER POLICY
Since it is contrary to the mission of the YMCA to be a sex offender, the YMCA will deny or revoke a membership to such a person. If such a person is currently a member when we discover he/she is or has ever been classified as a sex offender, we will refund the percentage amount of the membership fee that is still valid. A no tolerance stance will be taken on all sex offenders.
