I.D. Policy / Membership Cards
Members are issued a temporary I.D. card for the first week of membership at the time they join the Athens YMCA. After that time members will be given a permanent card. Cards are $5 to replace. Member information will be entered into the computer system within three business days. After that time, members will be required to use the membership card with the barcode to check in at the Front Desk .
