    At the YMCA, our highest priority is providing the safest environment possible for all. Anytime our pools are open, they are staffed by trained lifeguards. Additionally, children 14 and under, must complete a short swim evaluation so that we can ensure they have all necessary support to be safe in our pools. See Test-Mark-Protect for more information.

    There are several policies that it's important for all who use the pools to be aware. Visit our policy section for complete details
