Pool Specs

Our swimming pool is 25 yards (22.86m) long with a single lap being down & back at 50 yards (45.72m). 1 mile is equal to approximately 35 laps.

Water Fitness Classes

Group Fitness Classes in the water are great for those trying to improve their cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength, and range of motion through continuous resistance and limited impact. Our varying levels of class difficulty and routines will provide opportunities for you to get an intense, interval-style workout, or simply stretch your muscles. 

Open & Lap Swim

We offer both open and lap swimming multiple times each day. This ensures that members are able to swim how they want at a time that works for them!

Swimming Lessons

From All Kids Swim to Private Adult Lessons, we offer a multitude of classes for all ages and skill levels. We want you and your family to be comfortable in and around water and our certified staff will be there to help guide you all along the way.

Red Cross Certification Courses

Lifeguard Certification and CPR classes are offered throughout the year by our certified instructors. Through videos, group discussion and hands-on practice you will learn all you need to know about your selected course.

Swimming Pool & Hot Tub 

Our pool provides a large range of activities for all ages including, open swim, swim lessons, lap swim, fitness classes, 50 Mile Swim Club, and more! Make a splash and join the fun!

We also have a portable lift as well as a ramp for individuals who need assistance getting into and out of the pool. Average water temperatures are 86° for the lap pool and 104° for the hot tub.

Swimming Lessons

The YMCA provides swimming lessons to swimmers of all ages and skill levels. We also offer private lessons, adult lessons, and adaptive swim programs for swimmers with special needs, so we can all safely enjoy the pleasures of an aquatic environment. We offer small class sizes, year round lessons, certified swim instructors, and more!

50 Mile Swim Club

All ages can sign up at the Service Desk and join the 50 Mile Swim Club. Once you sign up you have 6 months to swim 50 miles using whichever strokes you choose! Each down and back lap is 50 yards so it will take  2,514 laps to finish your 50 miles! Participants keep track of the distance they swim in the 50 mile swim club log book, located next to the lifeguard stand. At every mile completed put a sticker next to your name on the wall. Once you achieve your goal you will receive a 50 mile swim club shirt.
