Be sure to familiarize yourself with our guest pass policy before bringing your friends and family in to see us.

As a reminder, all guests under 18 years of age must have a waiver signed by a parent/legal guardian on file prior to using our facility. Forms are available on our website. Looking forward to a great summer! http://bit.ly/1JYMfZR

We are only one hour away from our Select One More Registration. Please use the following link at 8am to begin your registration process: https://ops1.operations.daxko.com/ONLINE/3044/PROGRAMS/SEARCH.MVC/categories?branch_id=159

"A Farewell to Arms."
From time to time, the question arises, "What's the Y's policy on weapons in the facility?"

Because of the nature of our work, especially our youth programs, weapons (knives, brass knuckles, guns, etc.) are prohibited in our facilities. If you arrive at the Y in possession of one of the aforementioned items, please alert the Manager on Duty, who will be happy to help you store in our lock box while you exercise.

Thank you for helping us create a safe environment for all!

Please remember that our Summer 1 Registration will begin tomorrow, Monday, June 15 at 8am. For more information please visit our website.

A Safety Soundbite from our Risk Manager:

Hold the Phone. Just a gentle reminder that the use of mobile devices and cameras is restricted in our locker rooms as a safety measure to protect your privacy and the safety of our kids.

Also, as a courtesy to your fellow members, please refrain from taking personal phone calls while using exercise equipment. It's a little awkward and can be a distraction. Thank you!

MEL KORUM Family Y Policies


The Mel Korum YMCA makes every effort possible to keep the Y and its programs running during periods of inclement weather. Operating decisions are based on weather alerts, road and school closings and the ability of the YMCA staff to get to and from the Y and operate the facility safely.
Guests who would like to visit our facilities may purchase a one-day YMCA membership and take advantage of any activity or program we offer on that day. This membership is valid at any YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties branch on the day of purchase.

                                                                                                                                                                               If the Puyallup School District cancels or delays classes due to inclement weather, we will open two hours late and cancel all morning classes. If that occurs, we will continue to monitor the weather through the morning and make a decision by noon regarding afternoon and evening classes.


Current daily guest membership fees:

  • Youth: $10 ($5 if accompanied by member)
  • Adult(15+): $15 ($10 if accompanied by member)
  • Family: $25 ($15 if accompanied by member and on SUNDAYS
  • Valid photo identification is required

    Daily fees incurred within 30 days of purchasing a membership may be applied towards the joining fee.

    Signed liability waivers are required.

    Parent/Guardian signatures are required for those under 18 years of age. All children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
