Renewing Your Membership
Renewing your membership is easy.
We strive to give you at least 15 days notice before your membership is due to expire. If you pay by monthly direct debit your membership will automatically roll over from one year to the next so you do not have to do anything. However we will still write to you and inform you of any changes to your membership.
If you pay for your annual membership up front and it is due to expire, you can visit your nearest YMCA Health and Fitness Centre or Contact one of our Centres and renew your membership over the phone.
Membership Terms & Conditions
All of our terms and conditions are displayed below. They are also printed on our membership joining forms.
Memberships Paid for Annually
Persons wishing to become members must complete a membership form. Annual memberships attract a discounted rate, therefore if you decide to terminate this membership early you will not be entitled to a refund. (This does not affect your statutory rights).
Memberships Paid by Monthly Direct Debit
Persons wishing to pay monthly, by direct debit must pay 2 months upfront on joining (unless otherwise stated). Direct Debits will be taken out of the member’s account at the beginning of each month at the agreed rate. A current direct debit must be in place at all times to keep the membership in operation.
Persons wishing to obtain any type of membership designed specifically for students and attracting a discounted rate must present a student ID card and education should be their main vocation.
The membership card remains the property of Fylde Coast YMCA and is non transferable to any other person. The membership card must be used by the registered member only. Members must present the card at reception on each visit before using the facilities. Any loss of a membership card must be reported to a centre’s reception immediately. A replacement card will be issued at a cost of £1. Membership cards must be returned to Fylde Coast YMCA if a membership is cancelled or a cost of £1 will be incurred.
If a member does not attend the facilities having purchased a membership they will not be entitled to a refund of any kind. Members will only be permitted to use the facilities provided that their membership is current and any membership fees are not in arrears.
Membership Upgrades / Downgrades
An upgrade or a downgrade of any membership type is at the discretion of Fylde Coast YMCA. All monthly memberships requiring an upgrade or downgrade must complete a new membership application form. To downgrade a direct debit membership, YMCA require 15 days notice in writing. Please note all direct debits are taken out of the member’s account at the beginning of each month. Annual Memberships will not be downgraded.

Cancellation Notice and Refunds
Members wishing to cancel their membership should do so in writing, using the YMCA cancellation form with at least 15 days notice before their next direct debit is due. The YMCA is under no obligation to refund a membership fee for any reason. The YMCA may refuse to renew the membership for any reason. It is the member’s responsibility to cancel their direct debit with their bank. No direct debit money shall be backdated or returned to members due to the member’s non-compliance of the terms set out above. Annual memberships attract a discounted rate, therefore if you decide to terminate early you will not be entitled to a refund. (This does not affect your statutory rights). Membership Cards must be returned to the centre upon cancellation.
Any proposed price increase to memberships or session fees will be displayed at the reception desk 28 days prior to being implemented.

Members can pre-book most classes online, by mobile or in person up to 7 days in advance.
