Taking Safety To New Depths

Test • Mark • Protect

We are committed to ensure everyone is safe while swimming in our pools.

The YMCA of Greater Boston requires testing procedures for Family/Open Swim to add an additional layer of protection to your child.

All individuals under the age of 18 will be required to take a swim test, regardless of lesson stage or participation in other swim programs. Based on abillity, swimmers will be issued a green, yellow, or red breakaway necklace. These necklaces will identify which areas are safe for swimmers at each stage.

Please see your aquatics director with any questions or for more information.
