Greetings YMCA family and friends, It is hard to believe those unexpected winter blasts are behind us! Awaiting you and your family this summer are enjoyable, sunny, relaxing days at any of your eight outdoor aquatic center locations, as well as use of 12 indoor pools. Look to your YMCA for an exciting summer of activities for your family. From holiday pool parties and cookouts, to themed activities such as rubber duck races and tie-dying shirts, we think you will find that there is an event for every family member. With a broad range of activities and instructional programs outlined in this guide, we are sure you will agree that your favorite summer vacation retreat will be just around the corner — at the Y. New for 2010, your YMCA is excited to announce the largest slide ever installed by a YMCA of South Hampton Roads family center at Taylor Bend this summer! Your family will also enjoy the brand new spray park with water toys and largest free swim area at the Mt. Trashmore Family YMCA. The thrills don’t end there. The entire indoor pool area has been renovated at the Indian River Family YMCA! This spring, families welcomed the additional space for laps, swim lessons, chair lift, hot tub and more.

You will also find important information to help you maximize your summer pool experience, including hours of operation for all of our centers, pool rules and summer calendars. For your convenience, we have compiled all activities into a pullout calendar for the entire summer (see center spread). We have also included our complete Swim Lesson schedule for May 1 – August 30. Remember as a YMCA of South Hampton Roads member, you can register for programs at any time online at www.ymcashr.org. If you have any questions at all, please give us a call. All YMCA of South Hampton Roads family centers are listed on page 3 of this book. For now, sit back, relax and let our highly trained aquatic staff deliver the most relaxing and enjoyable summer experiences you have ever had. If there is ever anything we can do to make your visits more enjoyable, please let us know. Yours in the YMCA, Aquatic Directors YMCA of South Hampton Roads

General Information The following information is intended to provide basic guidelines to help you and your family enjoy all that our aquatic centers have to offer. The next two pages were generated from frequent questions and inquiries from our members and may not be all inclusive. Our outdoor aquatic facilities vary from center to center, both in size and amenities. Since no two are exactly identical, there may be variances in guidelines to ensure the comfort and safety of all members. The YMCA continually evaluates all policies to ensure the maximum enjoyable benefit to our members in a safe environment and may amend policies to reflect our commitment to provide the best service possible. We encourage you to contact the Aquatic or Executive Director at your family center for any specific questions or clarification.

Swim Test

Parking

All swimmers must pass a swim test before going down the slide or swimming in the deep end.

Please park in designated areas. Please drive carefully and slowly on the YMCA entrance road and parking lot. Remember, we have children participating in many activities outside the pool area. Your assistance in keeping them safe is appreciated.

We highly encourage members to contact the YMCA prior to visiting with a guest to inquire about any guest restrictions due to demands on the facility.

Pool Rental Please see the Aquatic Director about pool rental, availability and prices. Alcohol is prohibited on YMCA property at all times.

Lost and Found The YMCA is not responsible for any lost or stolen articles. Please lock cars and leave valuables in a secure location. All lost and found clothing, towels, etc. will be retained at the pool for one week. After one week, all unclaimed articles will be discarded or donated to Goodwill or other charitable agencies. 30

Birthday Parties Please see Aquatic Director about birthday parties that include pool use.

Smoking Smoking is prohibited on YMCA property at all times.

Music Boom boxes, radios, etc. may be restricted by pool management if the music is offensive to other patrons. If you wish to listen to your own music, we suggest headphones.

Pool Accidents Please report all accidents to a member of the lifeguard staff. We maintain a well stocked First-Aid cabinet in the pool office with plenty of Band-Aids. The lifeguards will be happy to assist you with any First Aid. At times, small children may have an accident in the pool. Please be aware that we maintain acceptable levels of disinfectant (chlorine) in all pools at all times. During an accident of personal nature, please notify the lifeguards. We will close the affected area of the pool for cleaning. Once we have cleaned the pool area, we will spread granular chlorine to kill any additional contaminate. In the event that an accident has occurred in the small wading pool, we will close that pool (smaller volume of water) during the clean-up procedure.

Pool Toes We will all get them; it’s a fact of life! During the winter months, when we wear shoes, the soles of feet get soft.

This is as much of a problem for the lifeguards as it is for the little ones. It takes time for tender feet to “toughen up” to the rough pool deck. During this time, we hand out a lot of BandAids. We have plenty in stock, so please check with the pool office or gate house as needed. After several visits to the pool, feet will toughen, and the problem should subside. You may also want to limit the time at the pool during the first several visits. The worst case of pool toes is after the first full day of barefoot activity. If you decide to purchase pool shoes for your children, their feet will not have a period to toughen, and you may be putting off the inevitable.

Pool Furniture While the pool has hundreds of pieces of pool furniture, there may be times during peak usage where a chair may not be available. On special days, (particularly holidays like July 4), we suggest that you keep a beach chair in your car. If needed, it will be handy. We also ask that you be considerate of others and follow the one-person, one-chair rule. Please refrain from using chairs as towel hangers and bag holders.

Babysitting Please see Member Services for information regarding babysitting while you are at the YMCA.

Lifeguards Qualified lifeguards will be on duty during pool hours. The lifeguards are responsible for enforcing pool rules and may remove any person from the pool for committing an unsafe act or for being involved in activities that may be dangerous. If a patron or guest is asked to leave the pool, his/her card may be withheld for a determined period of suspension. The YMCA Executive Director may revoke any


membership for repeated offenses or acts that may directly endanger the lives or comfort of pool patrons. Local law enforcement officers will be called for any person who does not leave the pool when requested by a member of the management staff.

Children Parents are responsible for the conduct of their children. Children under ten years of age must be accompanied and supervised by an adult (18 years or older) at all times. The pool management reserves the right to require parental supervision for any child ten years of age and older who repeatedly violates pool rules. Remember, lifeguards are on duty to prevent and respond to accidents. Lifeguards are not babysitters.

Inclement Weather The lifeguards/management have the authority to close the pool during inclement weather. All attempts are made to keep the pool open, and “wait out a storm,” however, the pool management may delay opening, or close the pool for the day to ensure the safety of patrons and staff. Standard procedure is to wait twenty minutes after each lightning strike. The lifeguards/management will also clear the pool during thunder under threatening skies.

Adult Swims Lifeguards may call a ten-minute adult swim each hour. At times, adult swims may be more sporadic due to limited pool usage, inclement weather, special days, etc. During adult swims, the pool will be reserved for adults 18 years of age or older. Adult swims allow parents a relaxing period in the pool while allowing children a break from the constant activity and exhaustion that pool play may elicit. Children under 42” in height will be allowed in separate wading pools (where available; see wading pool rules) during adult swims. The lifeguards will permit infants under 18 months of age access to the main pool with their parents during adult swims. Infants must be in the arms of the parent at all times. Please do not place the lifeguards in the position of asking you to remove your children

over 18 months of age from the pool during Adult Swim. This can be embarrassing for both the lifeguard and the parent.

Discipline The pool management encourages all parents to review the pool rules with their children. While the summer pool can be a place of fun and memories, it can also be extremely dangerous if pool rules are not followed. The lifeguards have been trained to administer discipline fairly. Generally on the first offense (minor), the lifeguards may verbally warn. Repeated offenses may result in “time out” from the pool for a period of 5 to 15 minutes (depending on offense and age of child). Repeated infractions of the pool rules may result in a conference between the Aquatic Director and parents and/ or suspension or expulsion from the pool. Serious offenses will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis. Vandalism, theft, use of illegal substances on YMCA property may result in immediate expulsion from the pool and criminal prosecution. Should you have a question or concern regarding discipline at the pool, please contact the Aquatic Director.

Pool Rules The lifeguards and staff of the YMCA will enforce the following rules. The YMCA reserves the right to suspend or expel any individual who violates the pool rules/policies. Rules and policies may change without notice to ensure the safety and comfort of all members. Rule changes will be posted at the pool entrance. • Swim only when a lifeguard is on duty. • Feet-first entries only.
