LAP SWIM/WATER WALKING 

RESERVATION GUIDELINES

  • Reservations can be made for lap swim or water walking.
  • Members can reserve a 60-minute time slot (45 minutes to swim, 15 minutes for our team to sanitize all touch points in preparation for the next swimmer). The pool deck manager will signal you when it is time to wind down your swim.
  • Reservations can be made 48 hours in advance of your desired swim time. For example, a 10:00am time slot on Thursday will become available at 10:00am on Tuesday.
  • Please book only one time slot per day.
  • Once you have reserved your lap lane, you will receive a confirmation email. You have the ability to cancel your reservation if needed and we kindly ask that you do cancel if your plans change, so another swimmer may use your time slot. (See instructions below.)
  • Capacity limits are in effect for all pools. Capacity will vary by location based on the size and configuration of the pool. 
  • Locker rooms are now open! You are required to rinse off before entering the pool.
  • FOR OUTDOOR POOLS: To access the pool, you must enter through the front doors of the Y. However, you may exit the pool area through the back gate to the parking lot.
