The Y has a long history of providing swim lessons to communities across the country and right here in Noble County. Swim Lessons are designed to help swimmers of all ages and any ability level gain confidence in the water and build a skill set to support safe and fun swimming. Swim Lessons are offered at 8 levels, from parent + child classes to stroke mechanics, providing a learning opportunity for all swimmers. Learn more about our swimming courses at the link below!


More Information






Water provides an ideal environment for strength training, cardiovascular workouts, balance training, and rehabilitative exercise. Water workouts are low-impact and provide a natural resistance that promotes muscle tone, reduces pain, and increases flexibility. It is also a favorite prenatal exercise to reduce swelling and stress.





Lap Swimming

Strengthen your swimming skills, train for a triathlon or just get a great workout with minimal stress on your joints in our heated indoor pool with lap lanes. 




Splashing around in the water is more fun when you do it with friends and family. Our branches offer family and youth recreational swim time. It’s a great way to bond, build comfort in the water, and practice skills.





The Aquatics Center is open Monday-Friday, 5:30am-1:00pm & 4:00pm-8:00pm with the exception of school days out and summer in which the pool does not close from 1:00pm-4:00pm. Saturdays from 9:00am-4:30pm and Sundays 1:00pm-4:30pm. Hours are subject to change.

Our swim test is given to ensure the safety of our swimmers by judging their ability to swim and self-rescue. Each swimmer must take the swim test each day they visit a YMCA pool. Swim tests are administered by qualified staff. Any child who does not complete a swim test must either wear a lifejacket or be within arm’s reach of a parent at all times.

The swim test criteria includes jumping into the water, resurface, and swim 25 yards without touching the bottom, a wall, a lane divider, or holding onto anything. Swimmers must maintain a horizontal position in the water and maintain forward momentum. A swimmer’s ability to pass the swim test is at the lifeguard’s discretion.


The YMCA is a family-friendly facility; please dress appropriately. Proper swimsuits must be worn in pool areas. No jeans, pants, sweat pants or frayed material will be allowed in the pool. Swim diapers are required for any individuals not potty-trained.


Any flotation devices must be marked with a manufacturer’s instructions that list the device as approved by the United States Coast Guard. NO other flotation devices are allowed.


For the safety of all members and guest, outside toys may not be brought into the pool.


All swimmers must take a warm water shower before entering the pool area. Open wounds are prohibited in the pool area, and bandages are prohibited in the pool area.


For the safety of our swimmers and to prevent shallow water blackout, any form of breath holding practice is not allowed in YMCA pools. Swimmers may utilize correct rotary breathing during their swim activities. Any swimmer who violates this rule will be warned. A second violation will result in dismissal from the pool area.


Running, pushing, shoving or other horseplay is not allowed in the pool area. Sitting or hanging on, or crossing over the lane dividers, is not allowed. Cursing and derogatory language are not allowed. The YMCA is an inclusive, family-friendly organization. We expect all members and guests to model four core values: caring, honesty, respect and responsibility in their conduct and language (including within digital and/or social media). Any public displays of affection not meeting the above criteria will result in members being warned; should the behavior not stop, termination of YMCA membership may result. The YMCA reserves the right to suspend or cancel a membership at our discretion if actions or behaviors are not deemed in the best interest of the organization.


The Y uses these measures and more to ensure your safety:

  • Nationally certified lifeguards on duty
  • On-site AEDs (automated external defibrillators) and O2 (oxygen) tanks
  • Staff certified in CPR, First Aid, AED & O2
  • Frequent and random checks of lifeguard rescue skills
  • Background checks conducted on all Y staff and volunteers

Food, drinks, gum, tobacco products, vapor inhalation products, alcohol and glass containers are all prohibited in the pool area. 


The Noble County Family YMCA is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Lost and found items are kept for two weeks. Inquiries about lost items must be made in person; items not claimed after two weeks will be donated to a local charity.


The Y photographs and videotapes various activities for promotional use. Please let the photographer/videographer know if you do not wish to be included in pictures.


Pool areas may be closed and cleared of people on short notice for inclement weather including lightning, emergency cleanings due to contamination, or mechanical failure of operating systems. Pools that are closed due to unforeseen circumstances will be reopened in the shortest time frame possible, and members will be kept apprised of developments through social media. During pool closures, members and guests may continue to use other areas of the facility or another YMCA location.
