As a family organization we encourage members and guests to maintain an appearance that is not disruptive, distracting, nor offensive in any regard. Therefore we have adopted a modest dress code policy. This policy aligns with the Y’s mission and core values so that everyone is comfortable when they come to the Y. Staff may ask a member or guest to change because of inappropriate attire. We hope together we can make the Y the best part of your day!

  • Any article of clothing that is transparent or becomes transparent when wet, may not be worn while participating at the Y.
  • Clothing and jewelry that portray negative messages and are deemed inappropriate by the Y management must be altered or removed. Tattoos deemed inappropriate must be covered.
  • With the exception of special events, swimsuits may only be worn in pool areas. When entering hallways or other areas of the Y you must be covered with a shirt, pants/shorts and footwear.
  • Activity appropriate footwear must be worn in all areas of the Y.
