We know you’re active and on the go. That’s why the Stevens Point Area YMCA is excited to offer our adult members, ages 18+, convenient 24-hour per day, 7-days per week, year-round access to our Wellness Center and Gymnasium.


How to Apply for 24/7 Access

Adult Y members ages 18+ may apply for 24/7 access at the Member Services desk. This benefit is ONLY available to adult members of the Stevens Point Area YMCA. Individuals with a day pass, guest pass, Nationwide members & other short-term memberships are unable to apply for access. The Y will notify you if your access is approved and your key fob will be issued. This process typically takes 1-3 business days. The cost of 24/7 Access is $20 for the key fob, and an additional $5 per member/month associated with the same YMCA account.

Safety & Security

Our Stevens Point Area YMCA 24/7 Access areas are protected by our advanced security & video surveillance system. Please note that this system does not provide staffing assistance for emergencies. As such, we highly recommend that you exercise with another 24/7 member when using our facility outside of staffed hours.
AED’s and emergency phones are located near the gymnasium and in the Wellness Center. A first aid kit is also located in the Wellness Center. In case of emergency, please call 911. For your safety, some parking lot lights will remain on after the Y closes. Please park in the lit area. Snow removal will not be completed until regular business hours, possibly later, due to certain weather conditions. During inclement weather, you may still access the facility after hours, but, as always, at your own risk. 

Code of Conduct

The Y has a strict 24/7 Code of Conduct and Facility Guidelines based on the Y’s values of honesty, respect, caring, and responsibility. These guidelines are in place for the safety and security of our members, and the protection of our property.

Key Fobs

Your key fob is your after-hours key to 24/7 Access, which includes access to the Wellness Center and Gymnasium only, and will allow access as long as your membership remains current and in good standing. Should you lose or damage your key fob, report it to the Y immediately. A replacement can be purchased for $20. To access the building, hold your key fob up to the fob reader at the 24/7 Access doors. You will hear the door activate and see the reader light turn from red to green. Pull on the door to gain access (there is a 5 second time limit). When entering and exiting the facility, please ensure the door closes behind you. Do not hold the door for anyone, as each person will need to use their own fob for access. This is important, as we monitor who is in the building at all times.

Key fobs may not be shared with others (including family). Members are not allowed to grant access to anyone else. Doing so is a violation of our policy and will result in permanently losing 24-hour access, and possible termination of your Y membership.

If a Y member fails to abide by policies, their 24/7 access, and potentially their membership, will be revoked with no refund given.

The Stevens Point Area YMCA facility is monitored by a video surveillance system for security purposes. Staff will review the video on a daily basis to address any security concerns and monitor for appropriate usage.

Why are you implementing 24/7 Access?

You asked, and we listened!  As we strive to support our community, we realize that our normal operational hours are not convenient for everyone.  We hope that the added benefit of 24/7 Access will help you meet your healthy living goals!

Can the key fob be erased by certain scanning systems?

Yes. This key fob could possibly be erased if the key fob was placed on a scanner at the grocery store or something similar.
