YWCA Clinton an indoor pool available to our community. Swimming lessons, open swim, lap swim, and aquatic fitness classes are all offered at various times throughout the day at the YWCA Downtown Pool. See pool schedule(s) below for times and availability.
Please note: Our hot tub and sauna are located on the pool deck and are therefore only available for use when the pool area is open. Currently, the hot tub and sauna are not available for use.
In an effort to ensure the water safety of our members, YWCA Clinton has a deep-water testing policy. Before entering the deep end of the pool, all children aged 13 and younger must pass a deep water test.

Approved strokes: front crawl, breast stroke, side stroke. Not acceptable – doggy paddle, underwater or back crawl.
