A “March to the Y” membership special is underway at the Ponca City YMCA.
New members can join the Y in March and only pay a $10 joiner fee and pay no membership dues until April. Also, current members will receive free day passes for their friends and family to join them for a day of fun at the Y.
“Now is a great time to join and enjoy the many benefits,” says Chief Executive Officer Casey Doty. “ The Y is more than just a gym. It’s also a great place to spend quality time with friends and family.”
Membership benefits include drop-in child care during workouts, free youth sports, state of the art fitness equipment, aquatic/fitness classes, indoor walking track, racquetball courts, swimming in the family pool or lap pool, a climbing wall, after school and summer child care programs.
