On March 1st, 2023, we launched a new system that will allow for online registration for classes and for our patrons to buy swim passes and classes online. We are excited to launch this new software in order to improve the user experience and provide an ease of online payment. You can access the site at this link https://ywcamaine.recdesk.com/Community/Home or at a kiosk station located in our front lobby. If you are a current participant, please feel free to go into the system and create your initial account.
YWCA Central Maine has been mindful about not increasing general aquatic pricing since early 2019 (pre-pandemic), however with the rising cost of inflation we are needing to make some changes to our rates and realign with our increasing expenses and costs of doing business in order to continue offering the community important access to programs and services. Therefore, YWCA will be making some adjustments to our aquatic pricing and streamlining our pricing structure to focus our process on the most commonly used purchase options on March 1, 2023.
There are many ways to pay to use our pool, designed to fit the needs of individuals and families in our community.
