FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

 

  1. Why are you taking the time and money to install a temporary locker room. Couldn't people just take showers at home?
  2. For our afterschool licensed Y’s Kids and Summer Camp SWAT programs, we must have one flushable toilet and one sink for every 30 children. In addition we have many members that need the use of showers before work and during the lunch area and we wanted to try to accommodate as many as we can during this time.
  3. I pay for a rental locker. What will happen to my stuff?
  4. We will have a specific number of small kit lockers in the temporary space for those that are paying for locker service in addition to day use lockers. We will have additional day use lockers in the general area outside of the pool doors and on the pool deck for convenience.
  5. What’s next after temporary locker rooms are done?
  6. They will begin building a wall to surround the locker rooms to begin demolition.

 

TEMPORARY LOCKER ROOMS/ LOCKER ROOM DEMO

Each locker room will have 3 toilets, 3 sinks, and 2 showers. We must have one flushable toilet and one sink for every thirty children that are enrolled in our state licensed after school/summer day camp programs. Therefore, a new sewer line was installed and was connected to our existing system.

 

FAMILY TEMPORARY LOCKER ROOMS/ LOCKER ROOM DEMO 

Across from the male and female temporary locker rooms will be the third temporary locker room. This will accommodate those with special needs and will be co-ed. There will be two ADA showers, a toilet, adult changing table and a baby changing table.

 

RENTAL LOCKERS

Members who pay to reserve a kit locker will still have access to do so. Some rental lockers will be placed in the temporary space and others will be located in other areas of the facility. We will notify those members once we have a date in which we will transfer items. Numbers may change, but access will still be provided. 

 

POOL ACCESS

Access to the pools from the temporary space will be through the hall and emergency doors in the lower areas across from the elevator. 

 

ADDITIONAL SHOWERS

We are also looking to install a few temporary "RINSE OFF" showers on the pool deck. 

 

HOT TUB/WHIRLPOOL

We are researching the opportunity to install an above ground temporary whirlpool on the pool deck for member use. 

 

STEAM ROOMS

The steam rooms will be unavailable during the demolition and building of the new locker rooms. Each of the adult locker rooms will have one steam room at the conclusion of the renovation.
