BASKETBALL GYMNASIUM UPDATE
We no longer require reservations to use the basketball gymnasium. View the schedule below. It also will be posted outside the gym.
Please note that our Summer Day Camps are in session. In cases of inclement weather, camps will use the gym and it will be unavailable to members during those times.
We now have a few open lanes for lap swimming that don’t require a reservation. During times when other activities are going on in the pool, open lanes may not be available.
Check the pool schedule to see if there are any open lanes at the time you want to swim BEFORE coming to the Y. If there aren’t, you must still reserve a lane if you want to swim.
Reservations are still required for Rec Swim and each Rec Swim slot is limited to 6 people.
GROUP FITNESS UPDATE
Capacity limits for our group fitness classes are as follows:
- Wet ‘N Wild & Arthritis Water Exercise – 20
- Aqua Yoga – 7
- Power Cycling – 9
- Land Fitness – 25 (BODYPUMP 21)
Please note that reservations still are required for all in-person and virtual group fitness classes.
The process for reserving a lap lane, rec swimming slot or spot in any of our in-person and virtual fitness classes remains the same. Click here to learn more.
SAUNAS NOW OPEN
April 19, 2021
Members can use the saunas in the new Women’s Locker Room and the Men’s Locker Room. The steam room in the Men’s Locker Room will remain closed.
We are limiting the capacity to 2 people at a time. While we will not have staff in the locker rooms to monitor this, we trust that everyone will comply with this restriction. If we receive complaints that more than 2 members are using the sauna at the same time, we will be forced to close them again.
Thank you for your cooperation.

We recently revisited our current protocols in some areas of the Y and made the following updates:
REC SWIMMING CHANGES
We are making two changes to our Rec Swimming Protocols:
KEEPING KIDS SAFE IN THE POOL!
During Rec Swimming, children ages 12 and under must wear a color wrist band that matches their swimming ability:
- Red = under 9 and non swimmer (parent must be in the water with them at all times)
- Yellow = 9 and over but cannot swim (stay in the shallow end)
- Green = swim anywhere (if under 9, a parent must be on the pool deck with them at all times)
When you check in you will pick up the appropriate color wrist band at the Welcome Center, according to the child’s most recent swim test in our system. If the child has not taken a swim test, he or she will be given a red or yellow band based on age. Children can test out of their current level by seeing the lifeguard on duty before swimming to take the swim test*.
If a child enters the pool area without a wrist band, he or she will be asked to go back to the Welcome Center to get a band before swimming.
*The swim test consists of swimming 1 length of the pool with rotary breathing and treading water for 1 minute in the deep end of the pool.
Questions? Contact Aquatics Director Tara Young at email@example.com or 717-243-2525 ext 210.
REC SWIMMING RESERVATIONS UPDATE
You do not have to be in the same household to reserve the pool for Rec Swimming. Please note that there is a limit of 6 people per reservation slot. If you have 10 people in your group, you need to reserve two slots for Rec Swimming or 4 of the people in your group will not be able to swim.
Members from other Ys now can use our facility. All nationwide members must sign our COVID waiver. Please note that just because we are resuming this aspect of membership, this may not be the case for every Y. For instance, Harrisburg YMCA branches are only allowing Wellness Center and lap swimming use. We recommend contacting any Y in advance that you plan to attend to find out about their current availability. Learn more about Nationwide Membership.
