Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Waiver?
The Kokomo Family YMCA is so excited to welcome you back to the Y, and we have been hard at work preparing to keep our members healthy, connected and moving -- safely. To help accomplish this, we have a new online registration system as well as one quick document to sign prior to entry to the facility. You can do this in-person, but you can skip the line by doing this online from your web browser on a desktop or on our app, in the comfort of your own home. This updated waiver must be signed before entering our facility or registering for classes. Skip the line and sign HERE
