In-Person at the Y
For your convenience, the Y has created an Online Reservation System that enables Online Reservations for the Lap Pool, Leisure Pool, Group Exercise and Water Exercise classes. Due to physical distancing and limited capacity requirements, members will need to reserve their spot. Walk-ins will only be available if the class is NOT at maximum attendance. Reservations will still be required upon arrival. Reservations can be made 72 hours in advance.
Please note: Reservations are for members only. All participants must adhere to the reservation policy or they will be asked to leave the program requiring reservations. All code of conduct expectations apply.
