Life Skills and Life Lessons…It All Happens in the Water
There is a long tradition of swimming in the YMCA. From the world’s first indoor pool dedicated in 1885, and the first mass swim lessons getting underway in 1907 to the first indoor filtered pool in 1910 and SCUBA training and certification introduced in 1959, the YMCA has been providing safe, fun, and innovative facilities and programs for swimmers to enjoy for over a hundred years.
The Aquatics program at the Metropolitan YMCAs of Mississippi continues the YMCA tradition by providing swimmers young and old a place to enjoy the water, learn safety, develop self confidence, overcome fears and improve their fitness level. Our certified lifeguards are on deck at all times, ensuring that our “water folks” are safe and enjoying quality time in the aquatics adventure.
The Flowood Family YMCA offers two indoor pools. The zero-point entry therapy pool features a tunnel slide and water spray features. The competition pool offers designated lap lanes for lap swimming. Lap lanes are reserved for lap swimming, exercise and swim team only. If others are waiting, we ask that members share lanes by circle swimming. The indoor pool area also features a whirlpool available for use by members and guests, age 16 and older.
Members must abide by pool rules and the YMCA’s swim test policy for younger swimmers.
