What is the Aquatics Youth Policy at the Clark County Family YMCA?
The primary role of your Clark County Family YMCA Lifeguards is the prevention of drowning. Their first defense against drowning is to pro-actively restrict non-swimmers and inexperienced swimmers to shallow water (shallow water is defined as water that is no deeper than your armpit). All persons 14 years of age and younger will be swim tested before entering the water with no exceptions. All will be evaluated and banded even if they are only intending to stay in shallow water. All persons 14 years of age and younger must wear appropriate color coded wrist bands at all times they are in or around the pool area. Those not complying will be asked to leave the pool.

Clark County Family YMCA Swim Test
Final competency for all levels includes having the swimmer and/or parents read all pool rules.

· All persons 14 years of age and younger will be swim tested, evaluated and given a color coded band to wear before entering the water. Those who refuse or who are unable to be tested will receive a red band.
· All persons 14 years of age and younger must wear color coded wrist bands at all times they are in or around the pool area. Those not complying will be asked to leave.
· Must wear a bathing suit to be in the pool.
· No street shoes allowed on pool deck.
· Children under 9 may not enter the pool without an adult. Children under 9 must be within arm’s length of an actively responsible adult 18 yrs. or older at all times
· Shower before entering the pool.
· Only proper fitting Coast Guard Approved Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs) are allowed in the pool.
