7th Grade

Free YMCA Membership for 7th Graders

Play Basketball • Swim • Learn to Workout • Play in the Game Rooms • Leadership Training & More!

Seventh Grade is a pivotal and transitional time for many teens. It is a time when sports become more competitive and provide less opportunity for the average child to be involved in physical activity. It is also the time when teens are given more freedom to choose how they spend their free time. Habits that begin in the 7th grade are likely to continue into adulthood.

The Meadowlands YMCA wants to support and encourage kids to make good decisions and form healthy habits that lead to a healthy lifestyle.

We provide a FREE membership to every 7th grader residing in East Rutherford, Rutherford, Wood-Ridge, Carlstadt, Edgewater, Wallington, North Arlington, Lyndhurst, Moonachie, Hasbrouck Heights, Little Ferry, Maywood, West New York, Teterboro, and Secaucus. Students will thrive in a safe and positive environment that encourages them to grow in spirit, mind and body.

Complimentary Personal Training

Included with every YMCA membership is a complimentary personal training session with one of our experts. This is the perfect way to introduce your child to fitness & how to make the most of their YMCA membership 


7th Grade memberships are eligible from September 1st – August 31st of the 7th grade year. Each student must be registered by parent/guardian and bring in proof of their grade, i.e. Report Card, Class Schedule or Bus Pass. 

To ensure the safety of our 7th Grade members, they must take a safety training session with one of our certified personal trainers before they can use their membership. This appointment can be made with the front desk at the time of registration (minimum 24-hour notice for making an appointment). Once the training session is complete, they will receive their access card for the facility.

Call 201-955-5300 or visit our Welcome Center to register.
