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.
As we transition from summer back to school, our pool hours and schedules change accordingly. Our Outdoor Pool switches to weekend only hours the weekend of August 15. Also in August our competition pool, instructional pool, and family aquatic center will be closed on certain weeks to perform preventative maintenance and to clean them. Please check the schedules before heading to the Y so that you know which pools are available for lap and recreational swimming.
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.
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.
