Aquatics

Swimming and other aquatics activities are excellent ways to get the physical activity needed for a healthy life. Following guidance from the CDC and local agencies, we’ve modified our pool procedures and aquatics programs to ensure everyone’s health and safety.

Processes:

  • Members will step on a sanitizing mat and/or dunk shoes in sanitizing solution upon entering pool.
  • Swim prep stations will be spaced out to ensure social distancing.
  • Sanitized equipment is available for use for all classes
  • Upon exit, members will place any used shared equipment in the “used” bin.

 

The Stowe Family YMCA pool requires a reservation.

  • To promote social distancing a reservation is required to be in the aquatics area. Members are asked to reserve a time for any water activity prior to visiting the YMCA.
