With a common mission to foster vibrant, healthy, inclusive communities that provide opportunities for every individual to be healthy, Special Olympics New Jersey and local YMCA’s are partnering together to reach and enrich the lives and well-being of the people and communities we serve.

Special Olympics Discount

As part of this fitness partnership, participating Health & Fitness Centers waive the joiner’s fee and offer a Special Olympics Membership Rate: 50% off the regular membership rate to the YMCA for Special Olympics New Jersey athletes.

Athletes will also receive a facility introduction and fitness center demonstrations with an instructor with the same frequency as all YMCA members. YMCA’s will offer participation in all health and fitness programs as long as those programs are appropriate to the individual athlete’s abilities.
