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.
Reserve a quadrant in the pool with up to five people. All swimmers must be members to participate. If a swimmer is 13 years old or younger, we may ask them to pass a brief swim test.
Beginning June 1, there is no household restriction on Family Recreational Swim. We'll still be keeping it to five people maximum.
Beginning June 1, we no longer require a reservation to lap swim. The latest state guidelines have eased restrictions on lap swimming, including removing the restriction on two people per lane, as long as swimmers continue to socially distance. Because we no longer need to manage capacity per lane, we feel it’s the right time to remove reservations.
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 land, 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.
To maintain a safe distance, please limit one family or individual to each aisle at a time in the locker room.
Things may have changed on the pool deck to maintain safety of members and staff. If you're not sure about something, please ask for help.
Masks are required at all times unless you're in the pool. This includes the pool deck and locker rooms too.

At this time, we are offering only access to the pool. Spas, saunas, steam rooms, and jacuzzis are NOT available.
There must someone 18 years old or older on the reservation to supervise any participants under the age of 14.
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 your children pass 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 your reservation while your children are in the water.
We will have designated seating for each family that enjoys family recreational swim. If members are not in the pool, they should be seated in their designated area and continue to abide by pool rules or appropriately supervised by an adult.
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.
For safety reasons, we ask that any swimmers who are 13 years old or younger pass a brief swim test. The test consists of:
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.
Yes, members can reserve a quadrant by depth or type of pool. There are three types of depths: 0-3 feet, 3-5 feet, and 5-10 feet deep. The depth of the quadrant will be in the name of the reservation for easy browsing.
Similarly, the reservation name will include the type of pool. For example, a reservation named, "Recreational Swim Reservation - Activity Pool 3-5 Feet Deep" is in our activity pool, which tends to be a little warmer than our lap pool. If the reservation name does not include the type of pool, the reservation will be in the lap pool.
Refine your stroke, practice your breathing rhythm, or elevate your turns with private swim lessons. Instructors teach from the pool edge, so participants must be able to swim 25 yards unsupported.
