Military Benefits

The YMCA, partnered with the U.S. Department of Defense, now offers free military outreach memberships to eligible military families.  The commitment and sacrifice you make for our country is why we are proud to serve you.  Please visit for eligibility requirements and the required forms or call the Butler YMCA at 724-287-4733 or the Rose E. Schneider Family YMCA at 724-452-9122.

AWAY Policy  (Always Welcome At YMCAs)

When someone joins a YMCA, they become a member of a nationwide association of people, and therefore, when you are away from home, you will be welcomed and treated as a member by other YMCA’s in the country as long as that YMCA participates in the AWAY Program. For more information see:  Butler AWAY Policy

Refund Policy

Membership dues are non-refundable. 

The YMCA reserves the right to cancel any program that does not meet the minimum enrollment numbers.  Programs canceled by the YMCA will be fully refunded or the amount can be applied to your membership account for future use.

If a member wishes to cancel their participation in a class, refunds will not be given after the first class of the program meets.  If you wish to drop out of a class after registering, you must notify the Rose E. Schneider Family YMCA prior to the date of the first class.  The full amount, less a $5.00 processing fee, will be applied to your membership account for future use.  Once the class has met, there will be no refunds granted. 

Please note that the processing of refunds can take approximately ten (10) business days.  If a class is scheduled on a holiday or the class is canceled due to bad weather or a situation beyond the YMCA’s control, the class will not be made up.
