Armed Forces & Veterans

You do so much to keep our country safe.
Let us give back to you.

As an affiliate of the Armed Services YMCA, the First Coast YMCA strengthens our military family by providing programs and services to the young men and women of all five armed services: Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard.

Thanks to generous donors across the First Coast and grant-funding, our YMCA is able to offer exclusive rates on membership and programs for active duty members of the armed forces (including National Guard and Reservists), veterans and their families.

Exclusive Military-Friendly Rates

You’ll save up to up to $57/month on membership fees, plus we’ll waive your joining fee (up to $100 savings).
