Gym, Swim and Play

A YMCA membership is your all access pass to health, fitness, sport and family fun. Come for a splash with family, hit the gym, swim laps or simply shoot some hoops. Enjoy a holistic approach to your wellness, keeping you engaged and fit while having fun!

Customer Friendly

We want you to keep coming back because you want to – not because you're locked into a contract! You choose a level of commitment you’re comfortable with; drop-in casually, purchase a visit pass or sign up for a membership. If you do opt to become a member, sleep easy with simple and transparent cancellation and suspension options. We also have great discounts for older adults, youth, concession card holders, or if you join with a mate.

As an added bonus, every Friday, All Access members can bring along a friend, spouse or colleague to enjoy all that we have to offer – free of charge!

All Ages & Abilities

We have dedicated memberships for youth (Active Youth 13Y-15Y) and older adults (Active Adults 60Y+). We also proudly offer free child memberships to our current members – an industry first. The YMCA are also leaders in delivering inclusive, NDIS claimable recreational opportunities (LEAP).


Active living isn’t just about hitting the gym. It’s about prioritising physical activity and finding activities that you want to do, rather than something you should do. From swimming to group fitness, to stadium and court sports fun, your local Y has you covered.

The YMCA manages South Australia's largest and best recreation and leisure centres. Each centre has unique set of amenities including gym/fitness centre, group fitness (including Aqua and Les Mills), pools, spa and steam rooms, stadium courts, change rooms and cafe.

NEW: Your All Access YMCA membership now allows you to use all YMCA South Australia managed facilities while traveling, as well as an opportunity to complement your existing centre experience with something new.

We have partnered with Alexandrina Council to continue the delivery of community exercise programs in Strathalbyn and Goolwa in 2021.

Made for families – no cost child minding, free child memberships, and on-site swimming lessons and youth programs.

Pools = family fun. Drop the kids off at KidsClub for some ‘you’ time, then have a dip in the pool for some family time. Many of our sites now offer free child memberships to members, along with great incentives to participate in swimming lessons, school holiday programs, and a range of other programming opportunities.
