Online Registration FAQ’s

Q: I can’t log in.

A: Your username is the primary email address on file with the Y.  Once you have your username, enter it on the login page and click “forgot password” to create your own secure password.  If you are setting up your account for the first time, select “Email me a password reset link” when prompted to set your own secure password. If you have any questions, please call the Front Desk.

*If you have logged in with a one-time code before setting a password, please log out of your account, log in again, and select “Email me a password reset link” when prompted.

Note: Each family has one account.  The system will allow you to enter any email address to create a new account, even if it is not the correct address for your account.  If you have entered an incorrect email address for your username, you will be prompted to create a new account and add contact details.  If you are prompted to do this, please contact the Front Desk to confirm your correct username email address.  Upon logging in with the correct username, your membership and contact details will already be in the system.  Once logged into your account, you can update personal details, including the email address associated with your account.  Creating a new account with an incorrect username will result in difficulty registering as your membership details will not be accurate.
