We are excited to kick off 2023 with a substantial pool renovation and maintenance project. This project is an investment in the future of the Marshall Area YMCA and a testament to our continued commitment to serve the Marshall community.
A strong YMCA performs ongoing facility maintenance, and we thank the many altruistic donors who recognize the importance of an indoor pool in the Marshall area. We understand that nobody enjoys a break from pool use, but we thank you for your patience. The estimated closure period is approximately 6 weeks. The long-term benefits will positively impact our current members and future generations with water safety, swimming skills, fitness, and fun.

Investing in the Future

The aquatic center is now in need of critical structural updates for the safety of patrons and long-term viability of our infrastructure. Support of the YMCA aquatic center is an investment in our quality of life.
