  • Registration Form

    • Each form will be time-stamped and accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
    • Payment may only be made by credit card if using the fax-in or online option. Payment may be made by credit card or check if dropping off in person.
    • To register, use the form printed in the program brochure. This form is also available at the Customer Service Desk and on our website.
    • Each family unit must have a registration form filled out and signed in order to register.
    • If you are registering someone other than your family, you must also have a signed registration form.
    • No registration will be processed without appropriate waiver signature. For members registering by fax, it is mutually understood that the facsimile registration document including the waiver and release of all claims substitutes for and has the same legal effect as the original form.
  • Members Walk-in Information

    • You may register yourself and any other North Suburban YMCA members.
    • Each family unit must have a registration form filled out and signed in order to register.
  • Open Registration

    Open registration is for those who are not currently North Suburban YMCA members. Registration for non-members is available on a walk-in only basis.

  • Membership Dues

    • Memberships must remain current throughout the entire class period to qualify for member rates.
    • Memberships up for yearly renewal in the two months around registration will automatically be charged at time of registration for membership dues.
    • Memberships up for yearly renewal during the session will be sent a renewal notice.
    • If the membership is not renewed during this period, the participant will be charged the non-member class rate.
  • Waiting List

    If you are on a waiting list and your class selection becomes available, your registration will be processed and your account charged accordingly. You will be contacted via the method you indicated on your registration form to confirm your enrollments. Please review the waiting list procedure.

    • If you only select a first choice and it is full, you will be put on a waiting list.
    • If you select a second choice, you will be placed in your second choice if there is an opening and dropped from the waiting list for your first choice.
    • If your second choice is full, you will be placed on a waiting list for your first choice only.
  • Confirmation of Class Registration

    If you are a North Suburban YMCA member and faxed or dropped off your form, you will be notified within 3 to 5 days of the time your registration was received. Please do not contact the YMCA until after this time period. Doing so will cause a backlog in the registration process. Questions regarding confirmation of your registration should be directed to (847) 272-7250 ext. 1216. If you participated in walk-in registration, you will be notified immediately as this information will print on your receipt.

    Classes with less than the minimum number of participants are subject to cancellation. If the YMCA cancels a class, every effort will be made to accommodate a participant into another class. Full refunds are available if the YMCA cancels a class.
