Central Park Pool Collaboration

Collaboration means “to work jointly with others or together…”

At the Y we are committed to building partnerships and collaborating with others in an effort to build a stronger community.

Our partnership with the Peoria Area Water Wizards (PAWW) includes access privileges for members of each organization to the other’s facility. During the summer months, PAWW Swim Team participants will hold practices Long Course practices at the YMCA pool. In addition their Master Swimmers will have access to the YMCA pool for open lap swimming.

In the winter months, YMCA members may swim during PAWW Open Lap Times. There are no additional fees assessed for this access to either organization, meaning this is included with your regular membership dues. 

Register now for 2020-2021 Fall/Winter lap swimming!

Email info@paww.org to register monthly for your lap swim spot Monday-Friday:

  • 5:00-6:30am **LIMITED SLOTS**
  • 6:35-7:35am

Enter through the front glass doors of the building and show your YMCA card. The lifeguard will Covid screen, and PAWW Liability and Covid waivers must be signed prior to your first lap swim.



We are thankful for the leadership of the PAWW organization, to work with us to develop this partnership, and I hope you will join me in welcoming them to the Y. We are hopeful that this is the beginning of a strong relationship between the Y and PAWW to support and enhance the swimming community in the Peoria area and beyond.
