Y Vets Membership

We salute our military heroes and aim to remove barriers to membership for veterans who are disabled. 

Y Vets is a program for service connected disabled veterans who can benefit from rehabilitative exercise but are not able to afford the expense of a full health facility membership.

Y Vets program is open to those who have served our country and have received a service connected disability rating through the VBA Regional Office.

The YMCA, in cooperation with the Vet Center and the Vietnam Veterans Honor Society, is offering access to its SwedishAmerican Riverfront YMCA, Northeast Family YMCA, and Puri Family YMCA which includes:

Warm Water Pool (SwedishAmerican Riverfront & Northeast location only)
Lap Pool/Lap Lanes (SwedishAmerican Riverfront & Northeast location only)
Strength and Cardio Centers
Success Coaching
Indoor Track (SwedishAmerican Riverfront location only)

The Y Vets program is a joint effort between YMCA of Rock River Valley, the Vet Center, and the Vietnam Veterans Honor Society. It is open to disabled veterans from all wars and eras of service on a referral basis.
