Membership Cancellation

Unlike many facilities in Peoria, the Peoria Y does not maintain long-term contracts with members. Members may cancel their membership by completing a Membership Cancellation Request Form at the front desk.

Members must give notice to the Greater Peoria Family YMCA of cancellation before the 25th of the given month at the membership desk or via email to the Director. This means that most accounts will draft one more time after cancellation. (Example: #1 Member cancels on January 3rd, they remain a member until January 31st and must pay for January’s membership; #2 Member cancels on January 24th, they remain a member until January 31st and must pay for January’s membership; #3 Member cancels on January 26th, they remain a member until February 28th and must pay for February’s membership.)

Members are still able to use the facility during the final month of membership. If you cancel and reapply again within a 12 month period, you will be required to pay for the entire year in full plus the applicable joiner’s fee or a seasonal membership applicable. NO REFUNDS ARE ISSUED, including memberships that are annual pay.

AWAY Policy

The Greater Peoria Family YMCA participates in the National YMCA A.W.A.Y. (Always Welcome At YMCAs) program and the Illinois YMCA membership reciprocity program. A.W.A.Y. members are welcome to use our facilities 12 times per calendar year. A fee of $10 per visit will be charged after the 12th visit.

Each YMCA develops its own policies for administering the AWAY program. For that reason, we suggest you contact the YMCA you are visiting ahead of time to verify their policies. YMCAs that participate in the A.W.A.Y. program are listed on the YMCA of the USA web site. Go to and click on “Find Your Y”. Participating YMCAs are highlighted.
