Aquatics

The pool is closed for renovations until around Labor day.

Youth ages 8 & up may be in the pool without an adult IF they can swim without aid as determined by the lifeguard.  Their parent/guardian must be at the YMCA.  Anyone under age 8 as well as those over age 8 who require a swimming aid (as determined by the lifeguard) must be accompanied by a parent or adult age 19 or over.  The child must be within arm’s reach of the adult at all times.  The ratio of adults to children is as follows: children ages 6-8, 3 children to 1 adult; children 5 and under, 1 adult per child.

Swim Lessons

Registration forms are required to be filled out and are available at the front desk.  Bring a towel and one-piece swimsuit, goggles are optional.  **We do not teach anyone under the age of 3 for group or private lessons.

Adult Aqua Fitness Classes  

Whatever your favorite workout—be it Zumba, spinning, yoga, or jogging—you can now do it in a pool near you. And it’s not just for show.  By getting your sweat on in the water, you eliminate the joint-jolting and tiring impact of many exercises while adding all-over resistance for greater strength and weight-loss gains, according to the Stockholm University College of Physical Education and Sports.  Bonus: People who do pool exercises enjoy their workouts more than those who stick to dry land, per research from Baylor University Medical Center.

Note:  Non-members use the family program participant locker rooms, not the adult member’s locker rooms.

The following classes are free for members.

Until our pool renovation is completed, we will offer Open/Lap swim times as listed below as well as a few classes at the Lexington Aquatic Park’s outdoor pool.    (207 Forest Rose Dr.)
