YMCA Indoor Pool Update

With the opening of the outdoor pools, you will be seeing some changes to our indoor pool schedules and program offerings. Due to the nationwide lifeguard staffing shortage, we have been forced to make some difficult decisions concerning our pools. At this time, we do not have the number of lifeguards we need to operate both the indoor and outdoor pools on their regular schedules.

Currently, we only have 60% of the lifeguards we need on staff. The YMCA has offered increased benefits, hiring incentives, and more to try and hire the staff we need to be able to fully operate all of our pools. Safety is our top priority at the YMCA, and we will never go above the recommended ratio of lifeguards to swimmers.

Effective June 20, 2022. The indoor pool schedule will be as follows:
