SWIM TEST POLICY
For the safety of our swimmers, we will be swim testing all children under the age of 14 years old. If you do not wish to take the swim test, you will be given a red bracelet and asked to stay in the shallow end of the pool. If you wish to go down the slide you will need to be able to swim the length of the pool and tread water/float for 30 seconds. We will be keeping records of our test, so you will only need to take the test one time. If you would like to retake the swim test to try and improve, we are happy to retest at any time.

DIRECTIONS TO HANBY OUTDOOR CENTER
From the Brandywine YMCA
Turn left onto Route 202 North. Turn right onto Silverside Road. Turn left onto Marsh Road. Turn right onto Chestnut Street. The Hanby Outdoor Center is a half mile on the left.

BAD WEATHER POLICY
In the event of inclement weather (i.e. thunder, lightning, or unseasonably cold temperatures) the Brandywine YMCA will have information regarding facility closings or late openings. Please call the YMCA (478-9622) before coming out to swim. According to Health Department Regulations, for safety reasons during electrical storms, the pool and pool deck will close until 30 minutes after the last clap
of thunder or the last bolt of lightning. The facility and pool may close early at the discretion of the YMCA staff due to anticipated extreme weather conditions.

SLIDE RULES
One swimmer is permitted to go down the slide at a time. The swimmer waiting at the top of the slide must wait until the swimmer in the water reaches the ladder before going down the slide. No one is permitted to use the slide without passing the water test. No one is permitted to use the blue slide with a flotation dveice on or with a parent standing at the bottom of the slide. These rules are in place for you and your child’s safety.
