If you are a Ann Arbor Y member interested in visiting another Y, please consult the facility you are visiting to find out what policies and guidelines they have for the AWAY Program. If you are a member of another Y and interested in making use of our facility, welcome! Please stop by the front desk and we will help you get started.
