Family Swim

Time is set aside throughout the week for families to experience the joy of our warm program pool. Family Swim is by reservation only, with a maximum of six families per time slot. Reservations open 48 hours in advance of your preferred day/time.

Registration is limited to one slot per day. Upon check-in with member engagement if a slot is still available, you may book a 2nd family swim slot for that day.

There are few protocols related to the Aquatic Center that we would like to share:

  • Men’s, Women’s, and Universal Locker Rooms are available for use.
  • Children age 5 and under may use the opposite gender locker room as long as they are with a parent or guardian. Families are encouraged to use the Universal Locker Rooms.
  • We have Coast Guard approved flotation devices for use, but please feel free to bring your own.
  • We do not allow inflatable flotation devices in the pool.
  • All pool users must shower on the pool deck before swimming.
  • No street shoes on the pool deck.

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.

Questions? Please reach out to Aquatics Director Jess Lukas at jlukas@gbymca.org.
