How Do I Join?
If you’d like to join, visit Member Services. The cost is only $10 (to cover the cost of the t-shirt). You will receive weekly emails from your Team Captain encouraging you to join classes, updating you on how many points your team has earned and also informing you about the weekly bonus activity.

How do I Win?
The team that earns the MOST points during the entire competition wins.

What do I Win?
Bragging rights and your team color and captains name on the YSurvive Cup*!

 

How do I Earn Points?
Points are earned by being active at your Y. You can run, swim, jump, lift weights, play basketball, do yoga or participate in a free class. Any of these activities will earn your team points.

How do I Track Points? 
Points are tracked through the online Fitlinxx System. Access to the system is free for members. If you don’t already have an ID, please see Member Services to sign up.
