Child Supervision at the YMCA
As a reminder, to ensure the safety and well-being of all members:

Accompanying adults or family members must:
- Directly supervise any child under the age of 8 at the YMCA at all times.
- Remain in the building in an accessible area for any child between the ages of 8 and 10.
- Directly supervise any child under the age of 10 when using the pools.
For more information, please visit the Membership Desk during your next visit.
All members may participate in activities in the pool during open swim. All children (under 15) will be swim tested. Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult on the pool deck. Children who do not pass the Yellow or Blue swim test must also be accompanied by an adult in the water.
There is always one lane available for lap swimming for members. Children, who pass the blue test, are permitted in the lap lanes and must be swimming laps. Swimmers in the lap lanes must swim continuous laps without stopping so as to not interfere with others sharing the lap lane.
