Leisure Pool POD

Leisure Pool POD at YWCA Midtown

Following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state guidelines, we are phasing leisure pool POD services back with limitations and new safety precautions in place.

Leisure pool POD is available at YWCA Midtown by reservation only.

Leisure Pool POD

Household members can reserve a “pod space” within our leisure pool area for open family swim. Here are some important facts to know:

  • Reservation for pod space is required. You can reserve your spot online, by calling YWCA Midtown at 612-215-4331 or a spot in person at the Member Services Desk.
  • Members can reserve up to 3 days in advance and up to 3 times per week.
  • Each POD can be used by one household; up to 12 swimmers per time block.
    • Ex: 3 PODS of 4 swimmers; 2 PODS of 6 swimmers, or any combo that does not exceed 4 households and 12 swimmers max for that time block.
  • Adult (parent/caregiver) must actively supervise children in the water. Those under 48 inches must be within arm’s reach at all times.
    • Youth age policies and swim testing apply.
    • Exception – a youth 15 or older can substitute for an Adult in the water for those under age, not 48 inches and/or not able to complete the swim testing. Parent/Caregiver must stay in the pool area while youth are in the water.
  • When possible, PODS should use one shower room bay for a quick rinse shower and changing. Regular locker room and showers are also available.
  • No cell phone or photo/video devices.
  • Slide and spray features are not available at this time.
  • All other pool rules still apply.
