Join the YMCA | West Suburban YMCA


Become a Member

We're more than a gym. We're a community.

The Y is a nonprofit organization committed to helping you thrive at each stage of life. We're passionate about nurturing the potential of kids, helping people live healthier, and supporting our neighbors. We serve the communities of Newton, Watertown, Belmont, Weston and Wellesley.


 ALL are welcome at the Y, and our community brings together people of all abilities, ages, ethnicities, financial circumstances, genders, races, religions, and sexual orientations.

Join our community today and experience the Y difference.

When you join the Y, you join a community where parents find a safe and positive environment for children to learn good values, social skills and behaviors; families come together to have fun and spend quality time with each other; and adults of all ages connect with friends, pursue interests and learn how to live healthier lives.
