Taking Safety To New Depths

Test • Mark • Protect

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

Beginning June 1, 2015 the YMCA of Greater Boston will be instituting new 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 level 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 level.

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