To ensure you have the opportunity to strengthen family through quality time together or develop a wellness routine in the water, the Y provides open recreational and lap swimming as part of your membership.
Use of Pools by Children
For your child’s safety, kids under the age of 8 must be accompanied by a parent/adult (age 18 & up) when using a YMCA swimming pool unless in an organized, supervised program such as swim lessons. Children under the age of 8 must be in arm’s reach of said parent/adult at all times in the water. The ratio of children under the age of 8 to adults should not exceed 3:1 in non-program activities.
YMCA pools will be kept in the following ranges:
- Recreational/Therapy: 86-88°
- Lap Pool: 80-84°
- Hot Tub: 101-104°
- 70 lengths (35 laps) = 1 mile
- 35 lengths (17.5 laps) = 1/2 mile
- 18 lengths (9 laps) = 1/4 mile
