The Battle Creek YMCA is your #1 local source for swimming, pool and aquatics activities. We have two indoor pools that are open year-round for your enjoyment: a full-size 25-yard pool and a separate therapy pool. Each locker-room and shower area provides direct access to the pools for your safety and convenience. (Facilities)

Members of all ages are welcome to participate in our aquatics activities, from babies
(6 months old+) all the way up to seniors and everyone in between. In addition to our regularly scheduled programs, we offer a variety of special events and classes throughout the year.
Our pools are open long hours to give you and your family more options. On a typical week, you'll find aquatics programs beginning as early as 6:15 a.m. and continuing throughout the day until as late as 7:30 p.m. (See current schedule) That's more than 13 hours per day!
Members can enjoy our aquatic facilities individually or in groups. Swimming lessons are offered for virtually every age group and ability level, from young children to adults. To learn more, check out our Swimming Lessons Schedule. The YMCA also offers lifeguard classes for swimmers ages 16 and up.
The Y encourages families to use the pools during our many Family Swim times throughout the month (see our current schedule). It's a great way to have fun and build stronger relationships at the same time!
We also offer outdoor swimming events, such as the annual Goguac Lake Swim and triathlons. You can also rent our pool areas for parties and special swimming events.
