A Message from the Aquatics Director...

The Aquatics staff and I have been so happy to have swimmers back in the pools again here at the Wyckoff YMCA. There’s no doubt that things have looked different since our first swimmer jumped back in on July 13th, but each day we look forward to seeing everyone enjoy the water again. As the weather has turned cooler and more swimmers are looking to use the pools, we know that the Lap Lane Reservation has grown in demand. In these first two weeks of November, we have identified a few aspects of our department that are in need of some refining. Please see these three updates listed below.

LOCKER ROOM TRAFFIC FLOW:

All swimmers will ENTER the pools through the Children’s Girls and Boys Locker Rooms and will EXIT the pools through the Adult Mens and Womens Locker Rooms. Full locker room access is still not permissible, but we do realize that exiting through the Adult Locker Rooms will provide more space for a post swim rinse, more bathroom stalls for changing, and allowing use of the bathing suit spinner.

RESERVATION TIMES:

Our registration window for Lap Lane Reservations is changing. All Lap Lane registration windows will now open exactly 48 hours prior to the reservation time slot. If you want to swim on Monday at 10am, you can begin to register on Saturday at 10am. This change should help ease the issues our Members have been experiencing. Aquatics GEC Classes will remain the same, opening the Friday prior to the week Mon.- Sun. at 9am.

LAP LANES ADDED:

I have been able reorganize some of our Aquatics Programs in an effort to create over 30 new swim lanes than we have previously been offering. I will continue to add Lap Lanes at any time possible.

LAP LANES - PLEASE NOTE:

  • Lap Lanes are non-transferable between swimmers, available to YMCA Full and Combo Full Members ages 12 and above only and will continue to be one person in a lane at a time.
  • There will be no waitlists due to the 48 hour Registration window.
  • If you do not show up for your Lap Lane Reservation, please note you will be charged a $10 no show fee.

Thank you for your cooperation and working together with our Staff to ensure the safety of all!
