Why do so many people feel like they belong at the Y? One reason is that no other single membership provides so many ways to exercise spirit, mind and body as the YMCA. So, whether your life is about shaping up, studying up, meeting up or growing up, it all begins with signing up at the YMCA.
We have a wonderful community of people here at the Stratford Y! It’s a positive, supportive environment where you and your family can feel comfortable while pursuing the activities that interest you the most.
When you join the Y, you become part of a family of members who support the Y’s philosophy of healthy lifestyles, mutual respect, community spirit, youth leadership and character development. Our staff is dedicated to providing the best in member service. Almost 1,200 people from several different local communities belong to the Stratford Y, creating a diverse and energetic environment we think you will really enjoy!
You’ll also get to know people in the community at large, as the Y partners with other charitable organizations in our surrounding towns on projects that benefit the common good. And, as a community service organization, the Y thrives on the camaraderie of people who help out by volunteering for events throughout the year.

My Y is Every Y in New England – Reciprocity
Another great reason to belong to the Y! We are for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We want to encourage our members to utilize the Y as often as they can. Sometimes, it’s more convenient for members to utilize a Y in a different location when traveling, near a workplace or in another region. Now, full facility Y members have the flexibility to use other Y facilities throughout the region, at no extra charge.
All YMCA members from Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont will be welcome – free – with their active/current YMCA ID card anywhere in New England and a valid photo ID.
Some restrictions may apply so please check with the Y you plan to visit by going to their website and clicking on the My Y/Every Y to learn more.
