Armed Forces & Veterans

You do so much to keep our country safe.
Let us give back to you.

The First Coast YMCA now offers exclusive rates for active duty members of the armed forces (including National Guard and Reservists), veterans and their families. The Y offers programs to help service members and their loved ones come together, stay together and have the ability to adjust, bounce back, and thrive.

In addition to your monthly savings, we’ll waive your joining fee (up to $100 savings). The following is also included in your membership:

Plus, you’ll belong to a community that is passionate about nurturing the potential of children, improving the nation’s health and well-being and providing opportunities to give back and support our neighbors.
