The Cortland County Family YMCA has specific policies on children’s safety:
General Age Policy: No child under the age of 12 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.
**Definitions effective as of 1/1/2018.**
