Pool Schedules

Indoor Facilities

The Lariccia Family Indoor Aquatic Center at the Davis Family YMCA has amenities for every age. We have a 5-lane Lap Pool for swim lessons, open swim time, water exercise classes and, of course, lap swimming. Our Rec Pool has slides, sprays and water activities for our younger crowd while the Therapy Pool is kept at a warmer temperature for arthritis exercise classes and our parent/child lessons. In addition to these areas, you will also find the hot tub and sauna on the pool deck for adult use.

The Central YMCA has two indoor swimming pools, and each has its own unique schedule and features. The Deep Pool is 5 lanes wide and is used primarily for lap swimming and swim team. The water temperature is typically 80o F. The Shallow Pool is a bit warmer at 86o F, and is used primarily for swim lessons, water exercise classes, open swim time, and birthday parties. This 6-lane pool also has a slide that empties into 5 feet of water.

Outdoor Facilities

The Davis Family YMCA is the home of two beautiful outdoor pools featuring geysers, curtains of water, water slides, and a diving board. The outdoor pools are open Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. For your comfort, there are six giant shade umbrellas and 150 chaise lounge chairs available, as well as three pavilions.

Safety is our Priority

We are committed to making the pool environment safe for all ages. Please note that in the event of inclement weather, the pools will be closed and the deck cleared for at least 30 minutes after the last observation of thunder or lightning.

For children ages 12 and under, we have a marking system that utilizes red, yellow and green wristbands (see Swim Assessment below). These will be distributed as you enter through the main entrance.

Pool Rules

To ensure everyone is safe and having fun in our pools, we have a few rules and guidelines to follow. Watch this short video learn more!

Swim Test

Click on the video below to watch the process we use to identify three categories of swimmers at the Davis Family YMCA – non-swimmer, swimmer, and those who are tall enough to ride the water slides.

Swim Attire

Appropriate, modest, and properly fitting swim attire is required at all times. We understand that there is more than one interpretation of what this could look like; however, the Y is a family-oriented facility. Therefore, we ask that your swimsuit be ‘G’-rated. Click HERE for more information.
