While the facility makes repairs to its roof this week, the East Hampton Y.M.C.A. RECenter has announced limited pool access hours for its members and students.

On Wednesday afternoon, the organization announced by email this week, both pools will be closed from 6 a.m. to noon. Open swim will take place from noon to 3, and only swim lessons and team practices will take place from 3 to 7 p.m.

On Thursday and Friday, both pools will be closed from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m., opening only for team practices and swim lessons from 3 to 7.

"Once this is complete, the second phase which includes the fitness center will begin," the Y.M.C.A. RECenter said in its email announcement. "At this time, we do not anticipate any closures. However, we will keep you informed should the construction affect our fitness center schedules."
