Age Policy:

General Age Policy: No child under the age of 11 is to be left unsupervised at the Y, unless they are enrolled in a YMCA program.

YMCA Fitness Center Policy: For safety concerns, no one under the age of 14 is allowed in the YMCA Fitness Center, unless enrolled in a YMCA program with an instructor present. No shoes worn in the Y from outside are to be used on the cardio equipment. Mud/salt/water quickly adds to the degradation of the equipment.

Pool/Aquatic Policy: No child under the age of 11 is allowed unsupervised in the pool area, unless enrolled in a YMCA program and an adult must be in the pool with children ages 6 and under.
