Family Y Changes Youth Membership Fees

Water Rat parents whose children are Youth Members of the Westport Weston Family Y should note that in March the Y changed its payment options for new Youth Members, offering the Youth Membership level as an annual-only option.

Any Water Rat Youth Members, whose parents paid by a monthly bank draft or by credit card, were grandfathered and permitted to remain on the monthly plan. However, effective August 1, 2014, the monthly draft option for Youth Members will expire.

I tell you this now so you have ample time to decide what to do with your child’s membership. The options include paying the Youth Annual fee ($250), which is a $50 reduction in overall 12 month membership payment upon expiration of the monthly draft option in August, or upgrading to a Family I $86/month or Family II $116/month membership to maintain a monthly draft.

Due to this change in policy, the Y would like to offer you an incentive to upgrade your child’s Youth Membership to a Family Membership. Simply change your child’s Youth Membership to a Family I or Family II by August 1, 2014 and receive 50% off the first month (a $43 value for Family I and a $58 value for Family II). By upgrading to a Family Membership, you also will be grandfathered in at our current membership rates for Family I ($86/month) and Family II ($116/month) until September 2015 and will not be billed the 2014-15 rates for new members: $100 per month for family with one adult (Family I) or $120 per month for family with two adults (Family II).

I hope you all will take the time to evaluate your family’s Y membership and take advantage of all the new Y will offer your family.
