  • 10% Off Pool Party Rentals
  • Free Admission of One Guest on Special Event Days
  • Discounted Guest Fee for Any Guest You Bring ($6)
  • Free Water Fitness Class (Aqua Tone 2)
  • The ability to have an Add-On Membership for Cheaper Rate

A: If you are a current YWCA rec pass member, your outdoor pool membership will include access to the outdoor pools between May 25 and Sept. 15. Your YWCA rec pass membership must be current throughout the outdoor pool operating season to qualify for a discounted rate. Memberships that are set to expire before Sept. 15, 2019 must be renewed or extended prior to purchasing a discounted outdoor pool pass.

If you are not currently a YWCA rec pass member, your outdoor pool membership purchased at full price includes access to the outdoor pools between May 25 and Sept. 15, as well as access to the YWCA facility between May 15 and Sept. 15.

The ability to have an add-on membership

Q2: I am a YWCA rec pass member. Why do I have to pay an additional fee to access the outdoor pool?

A: We are pleased to be able to offer access to the outdoor pools as an added benefit to our members. However, the YWCA will incur additional staffing and other expenses (chemicals, cleaning and maintenance, insurance, utilities, etc.) in operating the outdoor pools, which necessitates an additional user fee.

Q3: I pay for my membership through an EFT or my insurance plan. Why is my discount not as large as an annual member’s?

A: Because of the greater financial commitment of an annual rec pass, we are able to offer a greater discount on outdoor pool membership as a benefit to those who have prepaid for an annual membership.

Q4: I’m a YWCA rec pass member. Can I use my YW guest passes to bring friends to the outdoor pool?

A: No. Outdoor pool guest passes ($8) must be purchased separately at the outdoor pool.

Q5: I purchased a day pass for the YWCA facility. Does this pass include use of the outdoor pool?

A: No. Outdoor pool guest passes ($8) must be purchased separately at the outdoor pool. Guest passes are valid for one day at the outdoor pool only.

Q6: I am not a YWCA member or an outdoor pool member, but I would like to use the outdoor pool. Can I purchase a guest pass?

A:Yes.

Q: Will my outdoor pool membership give me access to the tennis courts?

A: No. The YWCA did not lease the tennis courts located near the outdoor pools and will not be operating them this summer. Tennis court use is not included in any outdoor pool memberships.

Q7: I am a YWCA rec pass member. Can I attend water fitness classes at the outdoor pools if I do not have an outdoor pool membership?

A: Only outdoor pool members can attend water fitness classes for free of charge. If you are not an Outdoor Pool member you have to pay for Outdoor fitness classes. The only exception to this is Masters Swimming.

Q8: Do you have a payment plan available for outdoor pool memberships?

A: Yes. Outdoor pool memberships can be paid in up to three increments. Payment due dates are April 15, May 15, and June 15. All members choosing a payment plan must provide a valid credit card, and all memberships must be paid in full by June 15 or membership privileges will be suspended until paid. Members joining after June 15 must pay the full membership rate prior to having access to the outdoor pools or the YWCA.

Q9: Can I use the outdoor pool during the quarterly Free YW Days?

A: Yes. You can use our outdoor facility during quarterly Free YW Days. The next Free YW day is July 9th. The Outdoor Pool will be available to use all day.

Q10: Can I rent the outdoor pools for a private event?

A: Yes. Questions about outdoor pool rentals should be directed to Mark Mellon at 717-334-9171 ext. 129 or by email at mmellon@ywcagettysburg.org
