Swimming YMCA

Pool Closure

During recent storms it appears our pool pump was damaged by lightning. As a result, the Ric Nuber YMCA pool will remain closed over the weekend (7/20 – 7/22). We will update again soon regarding an anticipated reopening date.

Thank you so much for your patience as we continue to make repairs to our equipment.

If you’d like to keep swimming during this time, we invite you to try one of other YMCA facilities.


New Child Life Jacket Policy

Pool Safety

The Y takes the safety of children very seriously, therefore we have implemented a new Child Life Jacket Policy.

• Patrons who do not pass the swim test are considered non-swimmers.

• Patrons who decline to take the swim test are considered non-swimmers.

• Non-swimmers must stay in shallow water (armpit-depth or less) and require active adult supervision.

• Active adult supervision means an adult must be in the water within arm’s reach at all times.

• Non-swimmers who do not meet the “armpit-depth” guideline are required to wear a U.S. Coast Guard approved personal flotation device (PFD) and require active adult supervision.

For more information view the FAQ and see examples of U.S. Coast Guard approved personal flotation devices (PFD).

Splashball™ is designed to introduce the sport of water polo to children 8-12 years old. The intent is to provide basic skills and understanding of the sport in a recreational format. Although water polo is known for its toughness and endurance, Splashball™ harnesses all the fun, dynamic as-pects of the game in a safe, easy to learn aquatic experience that will motivate kids to swim and stay fit. See Splashball in action!
