Facility Use Policies

Grounds
All YWCA facilities are smoke-free. Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult at all times while in the facility. The playground at east end of parking lot is not on YWCA property and use of it is not allowed under our agreement with the Seminary.     
Access
An individual membership is for the purchaser only and does not allow access for anyone else. It is not transferable even to a member of a family membership type. Violation of this is a theft of service and may result in the membership being forfeited. A YWCA Rec Pass membership is required for access to the swimming pool, whirlpool, sauna, gymnasium, racquetball courts and fitness center. Basic and non members may purchase access to group exercise and water fitness classes. All members must bring their cards and swipe at the turnstile each visit. If you forget your card, a desk worker will allow you access three times within a prescribed amount of time. After the third occurrence, you will need to purchase a new card for $5 to gain access. Tracking member usage is an important evaluation tool for all departments. We need correct usage numbers when applying for grants and reporting on membership utilization. Tracking access is also used for security reasons. This information is only accurate if all members are individually swiping their cards at the gate. While some members are diligent in bringing their cards, others are not. Please comply! Turnstiles are located at the service desk and fitness centers. These also ensure that those using the facility are members.     
Pool
We welcome all ages of members as well as community guests to our pool. Children under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 17 at all times. A complete list of pool rules is available in the pool area. Infants and toddlers MUST wear a swim diaper; diapers can be purchased at the Service Desk.

Fitness Center
As a non-profit organization, it is the responsibility of both staff and members alike to take care of our equipment. We ask that you take ownership of your workout space. In other words, if you see someone breaking the rules, bring it to the attention of a YWCA staff member. We have rules for this facility designed for the safety and comfort of all our members. If we all work together to enforce the rules, the YWCA fitness facility will continue to be the great place that it is!The fitness center is for use by rec pass members age 16 and older.  Members ages 13 – 15 years of age may participate in the basic training course to gain access.

Parents bringing opposite gender children age four and older may use the special assistance (ADA compliant) room. See the Service Desk for the key. Adults are responsible for children that they bring into the locker room and must stay with them at all times. Cell phone usage is not permitted in the locker rooms or fitness center. Baby changing areas are located in the men’s and women’s aquatic locker rooms.
