When will I begin to receive the Member Referral Rate?
Members will receive their member referral rate on their next billing cycle.
How long is the reduced rate valid?
The reduced rate received from participating in the Member Referral program is good for as long as both parties remain members, and their membership is in good standing (by keeping all monthly payments current). Should one of you cancel your membership, the remaining member has thirty (30) days to refer another friend or family member to join. If the remaining member does not refer another friend or family member to join within 30 days, the reduced membership rate will return to the standard rate for the specified membership type.
Can I get more than one discount?
Members are only eligible for one rate reduction on their memberships. Ask an MSR at your Y’s Welcome Center to help you find the best rate.
Will the Member Referral rate ever increase?
Yes, you will still be subject to future rate increases. However, your rate will still reflect a 20% savings as long as both members are still active in good standing, and the Member Referral Program is still being offered by the Y.
Does my friend or family member have to join the same Y?
No. A friend or family member can join any of our Y’s in Polk County
How many friends or family members can I refer?
Members can refer as many people as they would like. In fact, it is to your benefit to refer more than one friend or family member so, in the event one of your referrals decides to leave the Y, you have another referral attached to your membership, which ensures your membership savings stay in place.
Who is eligible to participate in this program?
Adult, Senior or Family members who pay on a monthly billing cycle from an EFT or Credit Card. 
I am currently receiving financial assistance. Can I refer a friend for this program?
Yes. Should your friend or family member decide to join they will receive the Member Referral membership rate for the membership category they select. Your membership will remain at your standard financial assistance rate or be reduced to the Member Referral rate for your membership type, whichever is less.
Does my friend or family member have to be with me to join?
Before the Member Referral Program began, I referred multiple families to join the Y. Can I receive a rate reduction based on their memberships?
No. The Member Referral membership savings is only available for current members referring new members. A new member is considered a member that has not been an active member at a YMCA of West Central Florida Y for 12 months or longer.
I am joining the Y as a new member in the Member Referral Program. Do I have to pay a joining fee?
Yes. You will still be required to pay a full joining fee at the time you join the Y. The 20% membership savings may only be applied to the standard membership monthly dues.
