SPLASH INTO SUMMER
Take a dip and cool off at one of our many indoor or outdoor pools and water parks! You have access to several water parks as part of your YMCA membership. It’s all here – lap lanes, zero-entry pools, water slides and saunas to relax in after a water aerobics class.

Children, ages 13 and under, will be REQUIRED to swim test to determine swimming ability. A colored wristband, green or red, will be required before entry into the pool. Green Band swimmers have access to all pool areas. Red Band swimmers are required to wear a life jacket or PFD, which includes those who are unwilling to swim test.
To pass, swimmers must be able to continuously (without resting):
- Jump into the pool’s deep end without assistance
- Tread water for at least 30 seconds
- Swim at least 15 yards (front crawl with head up or down) in a comfortable fashion without stopping or touching the bottom
Lifeguards on duty have the right to determine if a swimmer passes or fails.
All swimmers (GREEN and RED BANDS) 13 years of age or younger must have active adult supervision in the pool area unless participating in a YMCA program. RED BAND swimmers must have a parent/guardian in the water within arm’s reach OR wear a US Coast Guard approved life jacket and have a guardian on the pool deck.
Lightning or Thunder
Upon seeing lightning or hearing thunder, the pool will be cleared. Activities in the pool may be resumed 30 minutes after the last observed incident of lightning or thunder.
Rain and Wind
If the bottom of the pool is not visible to lifeguards, the pool will be closed.
We will do our best to post any unscheduled closings on our Facebook page.
*Excludes insurance-provided plans such as Silver Sneakers, Silver & Fit and Renew Active.
