  • How to join

    The best way to join is by coming into the centre.

    We'll work with you to meet your health and fitness needs, ask you about personal goals and help you create a fitness program that keeps you motivated.

    We'll get you to fill out a:

    • Membership application form
    • Direct debit form, to pay your fees.
  • YMCA 10 pass card
    When you become a member, you also receive a YMCA Members card. Valid for 12 months, this card gives you ten complimentary visits to any participating YMCA Victoria managed facility in Victoria, so you can keep working towards your fitness goals even when you're not near our centre.
  • Free consultation or trial

    We've invested in our centre, our people and the right tools to help you smash your goals. Whether you want to lose weight or learn to swim, we're here to get you on the right track. Take the first step with a free trial and see what our centre has to offer. Try our wide range of classes, check out the weights floor or join one of our many group fitness classes.

  • Paying membership fees
    Memberships are paid fortnightly by direct debit. You can pay from any of your accounts that allow direct debit, including a credit card account.

    Debits are made every second Thursday (or the following business day if it's a public holiday). It may take a few days for the debit to show on your account.

    To arrange a fortnightly direct debit, contact customer service at the centre.
    Your obligations with direct debit

    You must ensure that you:

    • have enough money in your account on the direct debit date, and up to 5 days after;
    • make any changes to your direct debit details at least 48 hours before a payment is due;
    • request in writing if you want us to stop your direct debits, and give us 14 days' written notice if you want to cancel your membership. 
    Payment failures

    If your direct debit fails we will:

    • notify you by SMS, email or post - so make sure you keep your contact details up to date;
    • charge a $10.00 administration fee;
    • ask you to pay the outstanding amount at your next visit to the centre, or add it to your next direct debt.

    We will continue to debit your account for any amounts outstanding, after making reasonable efforts to contact you.

    Changes to fees and other membership conditions
    We will give you at least 30 days' written notice of any changes to membership fees. We reserve the right to change other membership conditions, including opening hours, services and facilities.
