To access the pool, all members must enter through the YMCA main lobby door and scan in with their YMCA member card. All instructions from our staff should be followed at all times. It is recommended you bring your own towel as none will be provided and drinking water as public drinking fountains will not be available.
The pool has 2 sides: a lap side (larger pool) and a family side (smaller pool with stairs). The posted schedule will state a side for an activity. If no side is stated then that side is available for Free Swim.
When a name appears in a space, this is the leader at that time. If no name appears, the pool is open and staffed but no leader for the designated activities.
Pool schedule and number of lanes offered is subject to change without notice.
Members must pass a swim test in order to use the pool. Upon passing, members will be given a green wristband to wear while at the pool.
If a member does not pass the swim test, they MUST wear a life vest (we recommend you bring your own) and will be given a yellow wristband to wear while at the pool.
If you do not pass the swim test and there are no life vests available, members must be accompanied by a guardian who has passed the swim test. and will be given a red wristband and
