As is always the case in our pools, your safety - and the safety of all our members, program participants, and staff - is our number one priority. Please read our revised pool policies so that we can all enjoy a safe place at the Y.
If you’re headed to the pool, you’ll want to bring a few key items with you. Whether you’re taking just a few laps in the pool or are coming for one of our classes, be sure to bring the following items with you:
Swimsuit. A well-fitting swimsuit is a must-have. Parents that are dropping their kids off at the pool should make sure that all swimsuits fit snug.
Goggles. A pair of goggles protect the eyes from chlorine and encourages kids to maintain a better technique. Kids just learning to swim will, especially benefit from a pair of goggles.
Swim Cap. Anyone – kids and adults – with long hair can wear a swim cap to keep their hair out of their face when swimming.
Towels. All members are required to bring their own towels to each lesson.
Sunscreen - Members should bring an SPF 30 or higher sunscreen with them to the pool. At 30 SPF, 97% of the sun’s rays are blocked, stopping you from sunburn.
Shower supplies, such as soap, shampoo and conditioner, should be packed away in a gym bag if you or your child plans to shower after being in the pool. Of course, you can skip this step if you plan on showering when you return home.
Bringing the right items will make your time at the pool fun and exciting.
If you associate swimming with a relaxing time with friends and family, it can also be a fun activity that helps you stay in shape. Members of the Y are encouraged to come and take a lap in our pools because it’s so beneficial for you.
Swimming is easy on the joints and the body. Pregnant women, kids, the elderly and everyone in between can enjoy time in our pools. Bring the whole family along for a swim in the pool and improve your fitness together.
If you haven’t swam in our pools yet, we encourage you to start.
