Q: I didn’t see a confirmation page after I completed the online join process. Did I do something wrong?

A: Depending on your browser, you may have just gone straight to the account management page. You should have received a confirmation email with a receipt detailing your new membership. If you didn’t receive a confirmation email, check with your bank or credit card company, or call us to see if the transaction went through.

To print a receipt, click the “my account” tab at the top right or your screen; you can print a receipt from there. You can also stop by your local Y, and we will provide you with a receipt. Please bring a photo ID so we can confirm your identity.
