“My Y Is Every Y” Reciprocity Program

When you’re away from home in New Jersey, you aren’t far away from the Y. Participating New Jersey Ys are listed on the New Jersey YMCA State Alliance website.

The AWAY Program (Always Welcome at the Y) entitles Westfield Area Y members to short-term privileges at hundreds of participating Ys throughout the U.S. As each Y has their own usage and fee guidelines, it is recommended that you call ahead of your visit.

Kids Club

You can enjoy a workout or class at the Y and know your child is well taken care of right down the hall. Members must stay in the building while children are in Kids Club. All children must be pre-registered. Stop by the Welcome Center in the Main Lobby to fill out a Kids Club registration card. This service is available for children ages 4 months – 11 years.
