Goldsboro YMCA Sharks


The Family YMCA of Goldsboro is a nonprofit organization committed to the practice of putting Judeo-Christian principles into practice through programs that build spirit, mind and body for all. 

We seek to encourage in our memberships sensitivity to all the needs of others and are committed to enhancing the quality of life and the potential of all persons regardless of age, sex, race, religious affiliation or economic status. 

The YMCA strives to turn no one away due to financial hardship or the inability to pay appointed fees, provided there is registration space available in a given program or schedule.

The purpose of a YMCA membership

Membership in the YMCA means more than belonging to a "gym". The YMCA is the founder of organized fitness and has a vested interest in your long-term physical well-being. Through personal attention, individualized fitness plans and creative programs, the Goldsboro Family YMCA has something for everyone! Although many members utilize the facility to exercise, countless others utilize the YMCA for its programs for youth, teens, families and seniors. The YMCA is the local leader in childcare, aquatics and youth sport programs. Your membership entitles you to reduced rates on virtually every program. Your membership is an opportunity to belong to a community that shares, grows, and cares about all its members. YMCA members can feel great knowing that they are involved in an organization that cares greatly for the health and well-being of people and is committed to building a stronger community. We strive to make our members feel welcome, positive, and involved and our staff recognizes that service to our members is the most important part of our job.
