About Us We are a small group at all levels of swimming ability. Well-behaved girls (no running / jumping / horseplay / screaming) and babies / toddlers (with swim diapers) are welcome.
Location Information The YWCA is conveniently located at 1 Salem Square, Worcester, MA 01608. The environment is clean and friendly. The changing area is fully equipped for your modesty requirements (flip-flops/sandals are recommended). Female Lifeguard is on-duty. The YWCA is closed during our swim-time. There will be no other club guests. The pool is closed/private for us only. Moms must supervise children and keep near, per Lifeguard/YWCA policy. No children in deep end.
Attire/Clothing Many newcomers want to know what to wear or where to find modest swimming attire. YWCA-Worcester requires a swimcap which may be purchased from their store for about $3.00. Many sisters wear some combination of athletic attire available at Target or similar; there are also many Islamic retailers which offer modest swimwear such as this for adults: http://www.eastessence.com/islamic-clothing/modest-swimwear/ or these for youth/adults: https://www.modestkini.com/en
