Use of Pools by Children

For your child’s safety, kids under the age of 8 must be accompanied by a parent/adult (age 18 & up) when using a YMCA swimming pool unless in an organized, supervised program such as swim lessons. Children under the age of 8 must be in arm’s reach of said parent/adult at all times in the water. The ratio of children under the age of 8 to adults should not exceed 3:1 in non-program activities.
