Program Registration

Online Registration

The YMCA of Frederick County offers online registration for most of our programs. You may register and pay for classes and programs from the convenience of your computer at any time. Registering online saves time waiting in line, allows you to reserve a spot before the first class, and helps you make registration deadlines. Please note that some of our programs will require you to visit our Member Services Desk to complete your registration. There is NO ADDED COST to register online.

Member Priority Registration Periods

To better serve our members, the YMCA of Frederick County offers a priority registration period for YMCA members for each session. During this priority time, non-members will not be able to register for classes. Once the priority period has ended, non-members, as well as YMCA members, will be able to register until the class is full. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Make Payments

All of your balances with the Y can be paid online; including Child Care and other program balances. We are working diligently to make our Annual Campaign pledge balances available in your online account to allow those dues to be paid.

Refund Policy

The YMCA reserves the right to cancel any class that does not meet minimum enrollment. Members will be issued a voucher for classes cancelled by the YMCA. A refund will only be issued if requested by the participant. The YMCA will not refund or issue credit vouchers for weather related cancellations. Every effort will be made to make up missed classes.

If a participant drops out of a class prior to one week from the start, the YMCA will retain a 25% service fee. The balance will be issued as a voucher for use at the YMCA. After the class has met once, no credits are issued. In case of medical emergency, a voucher will be issued for classes not attended if the emergency occurs before the third week of the session and the participant will miss all remaining classes. A doctor’s note must be presented within two months to receive the credit. Only vouchers will be issued. Refunds will not be offered.

In-house credits will be issued for all refunds in the amount of $15 or less. Credits/vouchers may be designated as contributions to the YMCA’s Campaign for Kids fund. The YMCA reserves the right to apply credit/voucher refund requests to satisfy financial obligations to the YMCA including, but not limited to, Non-Sufficient Funds, Program and Childcare Balance Dues for the participant.

This refund/credit information pertains to membership dues and program fees. It does not apply to fees paid for childcare and camp programs.
