Continued from page 13 A wall separates the children’s pool area from two designated lap lanes. Additionally, two overhead doors installed on the east wall will allow sunlight and better air circulation. Mitchell said the doors are part of another future renovation that will include an area for pool parties. Swim lessons, a staple of YMCAs across the nation will resume in July. With the pool closed over a year, Mitchell is in the process of staffing the new aquatic center. “We welcome both lifeguards and swim instructors to come in and apply,” the Aquatic Director said.
Mitchell invites everyone in Odessa to come out and see the pool, especially families with young children. “I’m looking forward to seeing the kid’s faces when they first see all the new water features.” For more information about the Odessa Family YMCA’s multi-purpose Aquatic Center, memberships, or employment opportunities, contact the Odessa Family YMCA at 432–362–4301.
The Odessa Family YMCA is hosting a grand opening of the new multi-purpose Aquatic Center July 1, 2014.
