NEW YOUTH WRISTBAND POLICY GOES INTO EFFECT 12/9/2019

The YMCA of Greater Kalamazoo at Maple and Portage will be enforcing a new youth pool policy in order to best manage young inexperienced swimmers in deep water.

In order for youth 14 and under to have access to the deep end at any of the Y pools, they must wear a wrist band that signals to the lifeguard on duty that they have passed a required swim test.

This policy will go into effect Monday, December 9.
