Our Y is proud to offer heated pools year-round. Whether you're interested in lap lane swimming, water aerobic classes, Swim Lessons, or our Splash Pads, we hope you'll enjoy our Aquatics Centers during all seasons of the year.
Potential for Temporary Pool Hours: With the challenges of hiring and staffing during the COVID-19 pandemic and the strain of the nationwide lifeguard shortage, we are unfortunately in a position where we might temporarily modify our pool and hot tub schedules at our facilities on short notice. If there are no changes for a date listed below, hours are as regularly scheduled.
As of August 26, the Main Hot Tub at our Southeast Y is CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE due to a broken heater. The Multipurpose Hot Tub remains open.
Northwest Y Pool: The Teaching Well will be closed on Friday, September 16 from 4:00-8:00 pm for Corporate Challenge events. Lap Lanes will remain open at this time.

Additional Aquatics Policies & Information:
Circle Swimming Etiquette
- Circle swimming is utilized to accommodate three or more swimmers using the whole lap lane. Swimmers swim in a counter-clockwise direction within the lane, always staying on the right side of the lane, similar to cars on a road.
- Before entering a lap lane, observe the speed of the swimmers in the lanes and select the lane that is most appropriate for you.
- To avoid collisions, only begin swimming when the other swimmers in the lane have been made aware of your presence. The best method is to get in the water and wait at the wall until the other swimmers come to you.
- If you need to pass in your lane, move up to the swimmer and tap their foot. Do not grab or pull the person; a simple tap is a clear indication of your presence and intent to pass. To avoid collisions, a pass must be initiated in time to overtake the slower swimmer before reaching the wall.
- If you stop at the wall for any reason, move into the corner of the lane so other swimmers have room to turn.
Pool Toy & Equipment Use
- The Y provides kick-boards, pull boys, swim paddles, and deep water aerobics equipment for member and guest use.
- Please do not use equipment from bins labeled “class use only."
- Coast Guard-approved life jackets are available in a variety of sizes.
- A limited number of goggles are available for swimmers to borrow; ask a lifeguard if there are any available for use.
- Members are welcome to bring their own pool toys, but inflatable rafts and rings are prohibited.
- Due to a higher risk of injury, the weighted “torpedo” toys are not permitted in Y pools.
Youth Swim Policy
Swim tests are administered by lifeguards at their discretion and availability. If a child passes the swim test, they will be given a swim bracelet that signifies they passed to wear while using the Y pools.
- The Multipurpose Pools at our Southeast and Northwest Ys offer zero-depth entry to help members easily access the pools.
- The Main Pool at our Southeast Y the Multipurpose Pool at our Northwest Y feature a lift into the pool for those with mobility challenges.
- Both our Y facilities offer showers and bathroom stalls that are ADA compliant.
