The Y  understands that kids want to exert energy, discover who they are and what they can achieve, and be accepted among each other. That is why we offer all full-time and part-time participants a FREE youth membership to the La Crosse Area Family YMCA. A membership to the Y provides your child and your family endless opportunities to grow stronger together.

In addition to a FREE youth membership, your child also receives special member pricing for programs like swim lessons, youth sports, music lessons, cooking classes, and so much more. The opportunities for your child to learn, grow, and thrive are
endless at the Y.

The Y is also willing to extend the benefits of membership to your entire family!


Because your child(ren) is enrolled in the Y’s School Age Care program, you can receive a 25% discount on the Household Membership rate.

**School Age Care discount cannot be used in conjunction with financial assistance. 

At the Y, we make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income, or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive. Ask about our financial assistance program which makes Y membership and programs affordable for everyone.
