Our swimming pools are a prime example of how we are utilizing community partnerships to serve and strengthen our community. In addition to Y member services and programming, we host competitive swim teams from both Simpson College and Indianola High School. Our pools serve a full range of community needs, from waterbabies and swim lessons learning to be safe and confident around the water to competitive teams working towards personal and team achievement to adults striving for a healthy lifestyle through water exercise, lap swim, and aquatic therapy.
Y Swim Lessons
Did you know that drowning is the 2nd leading cause of death in children age 1-14? This is a staggering statistic and one where we know that we can make a difference! The Y is an accessible community resource to teach kids to be safe and confident around water. Through Y Swim Lessons, in addition to water safety instruction, participants learn new swimming skills, gain a sense of achievement, build connections with others, and increase physical activity levels. Swim lessons are about more than learning to swim!
We are blessed to serve a community with so many different user groups interested in utilizing our pools. With so many different needs to meet, our pool is the most programmed and scheduled area of our facility. We strive to use our pool space efficiently and to serve as many of our members' needs as possible. It is important that you are aware of the pool schedule so we post it... online, app, and at the front desk.
