YWCA Knoxville and the Tennessee Valley places the health and safety of its clients, staff, members, and supporters at the highest level of importance. As we monitor the COVID-19 status in our service area, we are basing our decisions for program and facility operations on recommendations made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), our local and state authorities, Knox County Schools and others.

Masks are required upon arrival into the YWCA building and should be worn until getting into the pool.

The weight room at the YWCA is still CLOSED.

In an effort to promote social distancing, all pool classes (including free swim) are limited to 10 Club W members.

If you are interested in attending free swim, you MUST call 865-523-6126 to signup beforehand.

Upon arrival, the Front Desk staff on duty is required to take your temperature.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank you for your understanding during this time.
