Lap Swimming

Spare your joints and get an impactful cardiovascular workout by lap swimming! It’s a great full-body workout, elevating your heart rate and burning calories. We provide equipment to help vary the challenge and make lap swimming more enjoyable, like kickboards, pull buoys, fins, and more. Our certified lifeguards are always on hand to assist you with locating available equipment. To view reserved pool time for Lap Swimming, view our Aquatic Schedule.

YMCA Lap Swimming is for ages 15+. Youth under the age of 15 can lap swim by proving they can adequately swim laps and share a lane with other adults. This is up to the lifeguard's discretion.
