As YMCA members, it is important to remember that we share our facilities with young children, teens and people of all backgrounds. We can make the YMCA a positive place for all by demonstrating the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Members are expected to exhibit appropriate behaviors at all times:
- Respect all members, visitors and staff.
- Appropriate language should be used at all times.
- Fitness equipment should be wiped down after each use.
- Members should not rest on the equipment between sets and allow others to work-in while you workout.
- All YMCA facilities and equipment should be used for their appropriate purpose at all times.
The Anchorage Community YMCA reserves the right to suspend or cancel a membership if a member’s behavior or language is judged to be in conflict with the welfare of other members or staff, or in conflict with the YMCA’s mission.
CELL PHONE POLICY
Due to the advances in cell phone and video/picture technology and for the privacy of our members and guests: Cell phones may not be used in locker rooms, bathrooms, or childcare rooms. Use of cameras and other video/picture capturing devices is also restricted. Posting of images taken at the YMCA is prohibited without permission of the Membership Director.
If you must utilize a cell phone, please be courteous and keep your phone on “vibrate” or a very quiet ring tone, and keep your conversations short and as quiet as possible. If family or friends need to contact you due to an emergency, they may call the main number and a representative will make every effort to locate you immediately. If a call must be answered, please do so discreetly and move to a designated area to complete the call.
Again, in an effort to protect the privacy of our members and guests, anyone who violates this policy will be asked to move to the lobby or designated area. If a member or guest continues to violate this policy or posts images, their privileges and/or membership may be revoked.
CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR POLICY
The YMCA reserves the right to deny access or membership to any person who has been convicted of any crime involving sexual abuse, is or has been a registered sex offender, or violent crime. The YMCA also reserves the right to suspend access or membership to any person accused of the items list above pending the outcome of any charges or court proceedings.
