Know Before You Swim
The Y is a great place to make a splash!
Learn about safe, socially-distanced ways to enjoy the water at the Y. These activities are offered just for members.
Join your family, neighbors, and friends in the pool with individual reservations for Recreational Swim. Members are required to remain six feet apart while swimming. Swimmers under 14 years of age may be asked to take a swim test before using the pool without a parent or guardian. Learn more about our age guidelines, including our mask policy for all ages.
There are no longer restrictions on how many people can swim in a lap lane as long as swimmers continue to socially distance. Space in a lane will be first-come, first-served. Help maintain social distancing by following circle swim rules when there's more than two swimmer per lane and resting six feet apart from other swimmers when needed.
Here's how we'll work together to keep you and fellow swimmers safe during your visit. Click the "Learn More" button below for more information about safely visiting the Y.
In order to reduce touchpoints, we're asking members to bring some things from home. These items include towels, goggles, kickboards, fins, belts, and noodles.

According to our age guidelines, anyone 13 years old or younger must be accompanied by a Supervising Individual age 14 and older at all times.
For safety reasons, we ask that any swimmers who are 13 years old or younger pass a brief swim test. A test won't be required if the child or teen will be within arm’s reach of someone 14 years old or older for the entirety of the time they are in the water.
If the child or teen passes our swim test you do not need to be in the water with them and can sit on the pool deck while they swim. We ask that you stay on the pool deck during while the child or teen is in the water. If the child or teen does not pass our swim test, you do need to be in the water with them.
We will have designated seating for members who want to take a break from swimming. If members are not in the pool, they should be seated in their designated area and continue to abide by pool rules and appropriately supervised.
In order to reduce touchpoints, goggles, kickboards, fins, belts, noodles, and other equipment are NOT currently available. Please plan to bring these from home if you need them.
We invite you to bring your own Personal Floatation Device for all non-swimmers who cannot pass the YMCA’s swim test. All Personal Floatation Devices must be Coast Guard-approved and adults must always be within an arm’s reach. We do not allow for any type of air-filled floatation devices.
