Lap Swimming at Deer Path Branch Indoor Pool

The Deer Path Branch Indoor Pool is open for lap swimming, by reservation. The Deer Path Indoor Pool is located at 144 West Woodschurch Road, Flemington.

In addition, the whirlpool has reopened and available for use during your reserved lap swim time (whirlpool maximum occupancy is 2 people).

Indoor Pool Hours:
Monday – Friday: 6 am to 9 pm
Saturday: 7 am to 7 pm
Sunday: 7:00 am to 7 pm

Each reserved lap swim session lasts 45 minutes so that lifeguards can clear the pool deck to clean and sanitize before the next session begins.  In addition to above guidelines, face masks and shoes must be worn to enter the building and must be kept on until entering the water. Members are required to shower prior to entering water. Showers and bathrooms will be available in the personal restrooms near the pool area but the general locker rooms will not be available. Please leave all valuables at home.

Frequently Asked Questions

When can I reserve lap or rec swim time?
You will be able to reserve space 7 days in advance. Reservations are made on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED basis.

When I click FIND ME, nothing happens. What should I do?
Clear your browsing history and then try again. If that does not work, email Senior Director of Member Engagement & Wellness Justin Grand at jgrand@hcymca.org.

Does the reservation system close at any particular time?
Reservations will close 3 hours prior to reservation  start time. After this time, members will no longer be able to make reservations.

What is the duration of each lane reservation?
Reservations will be for 45 minutes. At the end of your time slot, the lifeguards will clear the pool deck to clean and sanitize before the next group arrives. Please leave the area quickly when your time is over to allow time for the next group of swimmers to place their belongings and get in the pool while maintaining social distancing.  Swimmers should expect to dry off and shower and change at home.

Is there a limit as to how many reservations I can make for a day?
We are limiting members to one lap lane reservation per day.

Can I reserve spots for someone else (husband, friend, sibling, child, etc)?
Each login has the capability to make only ONE reservation for lap swimming per day. For Family Swim, only one reservation is needed for a family of up to 5 family members in the same household on the same membership account.

What if I need to cancel my reservation?
If you need to cancel, please do so as soon as possible to allow other members the opportunity to attend the time slot. To cancel a reservation, sign into our self-scheduler on the website, click on My Appointments and select Cancel next to the reservation you would like to cancel. You can only cancel online up to one hour prior to the start time.

What if I arrive early for my reservation? What if I arrive late for my reservation?
In consideration for our strict physical distancing requirements and out of respect for all members, we kindly ask that you arrive only 15 minutes prior to the time of your reservation for a health screening. Running late? Your specific reservation time slot is yours start to finish. Should you arrive late, you may swim up until the time of the end of your reservation. Additional time after your reservation will not be permitted.

Is there a penalty for making a reservation and not showing up?
We are hopeful that members will be respectful of the need to make reservations. However, should branches notice a member abusing the system, they may see the need to have a discussion with him or her. These incidences will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
