NEW: We heard you! Starting Monday, October 12, our hours are increasing and we will be offering two additional lap swim sessions per week: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:15-7:15am. Plus, changing areas are now available when your swim is complete. 

The Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA is thrilled to reopen our indoor pool facilities to current, active members ages 14 and over for lap swimming, water walking and individual water fitness!

If your membership is currently on hold, you can take it off hold here. Prior to your initial return to our Y, active members also will need to e-sign our updated Membership Code of Conduct and Waiver. You can do so by clicking here.

The pool is currently open for lap swim, Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7:30am to 1:00pm (Pool 2), Tuesday and Thursday from 6:15am to 2:30pm (Pool 2) and Monday and Wednesday from 6:00-7:00pm (Pool 1).*

*Please note: lap swim times are subject to vary. Please check the registration section for current availability.

We recently expanded the number of lap swimming lanes in use at one time and added specific times for water walking/individual water fitness.

Now, six lanes are in use at one time (except when there are lanes in use for water walking/individual water fitness). Swimmers in lanes next to one another are asked to start at opposite ends of the pool to help adhere to social distancing guidelines.

Water walking and individual water fitness lanes are available from 12-1pm (Pool 2) and 1:30-2:30pm (Pool 1), Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

All sessions are 60-minutes long, with time in between each session to allow for cleaning and sanitizing of the pool deck.

To participate in lap swim, water walking and individual water fitness, members must register in advance. You can view the available time slots for the next two weeks and learn more about registering here. Every Thursday at noon, we we will publish a one-week schedule that starts the following Monday. Registration for lap swim will close at 2:30pm the day prior.

Members can register for a maximum of three 60-minute swim sessions per week. Also new to lap swimming: two members within the same household can now share a lane. When registering, you can select to add a second person (age 14 and over) on your membership to swim during the same time.

We ask that members please be respectful of others who would like to swim. If you have to cancel a reservation, please contact Ellen Daudelin at at least 24 hours in advance. If you do not cancel or show up for your reservation, you will be charged a $10 fee.

We all have an important role to play in keeping our Y community safe. We have implemented some new policies and procedures in the interest of everyone’s health and safety. By knowing what to expect and being ready to go, you will make the most of your lap swimming appointment at the Y. You can view our new Swimming Guidelines here.

If you have any questions about pool usage, please contact Ellen Daudelin at or Zach Smith at For general membership inquiries, please call 908-889-8880 or email
