Safety Swims First

The safety of all our participants is our top priority. To ensure the health and safety of all campers and family members, the following Swim Lesson Safety Procedures are in place until further notice. Requirements are based on local city, county, and state orders.

  • YMCA staff will designate an area where any parents and accompanying siblings can safely sit.
  • Swim instructors will properly disinfect surfaces between lessons, and ensure that any shared surfaces or areas are sanitized between students.
  • The Y will allow adequate time between lessons such that only one family is in the facility or area at a time for Private Swim Lessons.

How You Can Help

There are several ways families can help Y team members and children stay safe before, during, and after their swim lesson takes place. Please review the following details.

  • Please arrive no more than five minutes before your lesson time.
  • Please ensure swim students are fully dressed in swim attire upon arrival.
  • Once your swim lesson is complete, please exit the pool area as soon as possible to allow for additional lessons that may follow.
  • Please don’t change children out of swim clothes and/or diapers on the pool deck. Use of appropriate locker rooms and/or changing areas is permitted.
  • Parents and guardians shouldn’t wring out swim diapers in the pool or around the deck area.
  • Any disposable swim diapers, diapers, or any other trash should be placed in a bag and taken home by the parent.
