Aquatics Program Sessions

Caps and goggles are on sale at the front desk. Latex swim caps are $3; silicone swim caps are $8 (better quality, easier on your head, and no need to get your hair wet before putting it on). Variety of goggles for $8 and $13.

Wheelchair Lift Available
If you are in a wheelchair or it is difficult for you to use the stairs to get into the pool, we now have a lift that will easily help you into the pool. Ask the lifeguard on duty for assistance.

Sauna and Changing Room
In February and March, 2011, the
YMCA constructed a sauna adjacent to the swimming pool along with a family changing room adjacent to the pool. The hours of the sauna will be the same as for the swimming pool and hot tub: Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. until 9 p.m. (closed, however, between 2 and 3:30 p.m.), between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Saturday, and from 1 until 5 p.m. on Sunday.
