We will open the outdoor pool to the maximum allowed capacities based on the Executive Orders from the Governor’s Office that ensure a safe experience for our members and guests.


In accordance with Governor Northam’s recent announcement, effective May 15, masks will no longer be required to be worn by people who are fully vaccinated.  Please visit the CDC’s website to learn more about what it means to be fully vaccinated.

Lap Lanes are available for Outdoor Pool members on a first-come/first-serve basis.  Reservations are no longer required for lap swimming. 


Drinks are available through our vending machine and snacks and ice cream are available for purchase at the Gate House.  Outside food and drink is allowed.  However, no glass containers, alcohol or drugs are permitted on the premises.  Please discard all trash in appropriate waste receptacles after use.


All Outdoor Pool Members are now allowed guests!  Guests under 3 years old are free; 3 - 17 year olds are $5 per guest; 18 years and older guests are $10 per person; families are $20 per family.

  • Y Members are not eligible to use their complimentary guess passes at the pool.

  • Guests under 18 years old need an adult to create the non-member account on their behalf. 

Inclement Weather

The YMCA will close the pool in the event of inclement weather if the safety of our members and guests is at risk.  While we will try to “wait out the storm”, the pool will remain closed for 30 minutes after each lightning strike or clap of thunder.  For more information on the Inclement Weather Policy, see our Information Packet at the bottom of this page.

Swim Tests

Swim tests assist our lifeguards in more quickly identifying the swimmers who can be in different areas of the pool.  Our swim test consists of jumping in the water, treading water for 15 seconds, and swimming 25 yards.
