Join the Illinois Valley YMCA today!

The Illinois Valley YMCA is open and ready to welcome new members!

Do your kids need to burn off energy? Has the winter got you feeling gloomy? Are you missing the outdoors and playing sports? Look no further. The Illinois Valley YMCA has something for everyone!

Located in Peru, the Illinois Valley YMCA is open seven days a week and offers a wide range of sports and activities, including Tumbling, swim lessons, swim team, Tae Kwon Do and group exercise classes on both land and water. Adult basketball, pickleball and racketball have also reopened under the Restore Illinois guidelines.

There are several ways to join the IVYMCA. Memberships range from household to individual, single parent family, young adult, youth and seniors. Individuals between the ages of 15 and 26 can enroll with a Young Adult membership, and Youth memberships are available for students in Kindergarten through junior high. Seniors age 62 and over can also purchase an individual or couple membership.

Children 12 and under are allowed but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times.

There is no joiner fee in the month of March - that’s a $100 savings! After your first month, membership fee is drafted from your bank on the 15th of every month. You can also pay in full for 3 months or 12 months. There are no long-term annual contracts!

Your YMCA membership gives you access to pools, gyms and running tracks. Enjoy swimming and running in a safe environment. The fitness center has all of the latest exercise equipment, machines and free weights.

Currently, the IVYMCA is not accepting guests or members from other Y’s. Masks must be worn at all times in the facility and highly recommends the use of masks in group fitness classes.

Follow the gym’s guidelines and stay at least 6 feet apart, away from other members, and clean equipment before and after using it.
