Bring the whole family and enjoy time splashing around in the pool during our recreational swim time!
*Please note the rec pool closes at 4:30pm T/Th for swim lessons
Our swim test is to ensure the safety of our swimmers by judging their ability to swim and self-rescue. Each swimmer must take the swim test each day they visit a YMCA pool. Swim tests are administered by a lifeguard. Any child who does not complete a swim test must either wear a life jacket or be within arm’s reach of a parent at all times.
The swim test criteria includes:
Swim 20 yards without touching the bottom, a wall, a lane divider, or holding onto anything.
Swimmers must also be able to tread water for 60 seconds while keeping their ears out of the water and not submerging.
A swimmer’s ability to pass the swim test is at the lifeguard’s discretion. If the pool is busy the lifeguard can deny administering a swim test for safety reasons.
