Family/Open Swim

Each day, through time identified on our schedules as “Open Swim,” we invite families to enjoy our Program Pool for recreational swim time together. As always, this is free to Y members. Non-members are welcome to purchase a Family Day Pass for only $15. While these hours are largely enjoyed by families, all members are invited to use the Program Pool during these times.

Children who are non-swimmers must have an adult in the water with them at all times. Anyone wishing to swim in the deep end must pass a lifeguard-administered swim test.
