Swim Bands

  • Green: The swimmer must jump in from the deep end of the pool, swim to the middle of the pool (Freestyle) and tread water for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds the swimmer must swim back to the wall on their back. (Must not touch the side of the pool at any time during the test.)
  • Yellow: Start in the Shallow end and swim to the safety rope (On Front). Swimmer must then swim back to the original starting point. (Must not touch the bottom of the pool or side of the pool anytime during the test.)
  • Red: Red band swimmers must remain in the zero-depth entry area of the splash pad or in water no more than 4 1/2 ft. deep while swimming in our indoor pools. When swimming in our indoor pools, red band swimmers must wear a life jacket. Water in these designated shallow areas must fall at, or below, the child’s armpits to be permitted to swim without a life-jacket. Red band swimmers without a life jacket must have a parent/guardian in the water with them within arms reach.
  • Once the test is completed the lifeguard will issue an appropriate swim band with associated with the child’s swim level.
  • The Lifeguard has the final authority!

Weather Policy

If thunder is heard or lightning is seen, the lifeguards will close all indoor and outdoor pools, as well as clear the pool decks. All pools must remain closed until 30 minutes after the last thunder or lightning is observed, as per insurance and YMCA guidelines. ***YMCA staff and lifeguards have the final call***
