Aquatic safety at our pools is our first priority. All children ages 12 years and younger must participate in a swimming skills assessment and will be provided a colored wristband based on their swimming ability. Once tested, each time a child comes into the Y for open swim they will need to acquire their color appropriate wristband from the Welcome Desk when checking in. Complete details are available on our Test.Mark.Protect page.

Please contact the Aquatics Director with any questions.
