YOUTH AQUATIC SAFETY INITIATIVE
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.
ONE Aquatic class per person, per cycle. Swim lessons run for 7 weeks and report cards will be distributed during week 6. If you want to sign up after the first day of class, you must obtain written permission from the Aquatics Director prior to registering for class. NO exceptions.
