THE 100 MILE SWIM CLUB

Do you like to swim? Do you frequently find yourself swimming laps at the Y pool, no matter rain, shine or snow? Have you noticed a persistent chlorine smell that seems to follow you constantly? Are most of your towels and swim suits wet most of the time?

 

If you answered yes to any of these questions, the Y’s 100 Mile Swim Club might be for you! Join now in your YMCA app.

LOOKING FOR POOL SCHEDULES?

We recently changed our website schedule/search function to include only structured events (group exercise classes, sports, programs). If you're looking for open swim (family pools or lane / lap pools) you must:

  1. Visit the branch page where you want to swim (start at our LOCATIONS page).
  2. Scroll down past the image at the top of the page.
  3. Look for and tap the "Swim Schedule" options (on the right).
  4. A viewable/downloadable/printable PDF should open on your screen.
  5. Check the "effective dates" to make sure you have the right schedule.

Consider, instead, downloading our FREE app (for Apple and Android devices) where you can find all of our current schedules with a few finger taps.
