All children under the age of 7 must be accompanied by an adult at all times while in the facility. (Exception: when in babysitting, preschool, or other supervised YMCA programs.)

The YMCA is not responsible for lost or stolen property. Due to the large volume of people using the YMCA facilities, we are unable to check valuables at the service desk. Members and guests are advised not to bring valuables with them.

Lost and found articles will be kept at the YMCA for a period of 2 weeks, at which time they will be donated or thrown out. Ask at the service desk to check our lost and found area.

To better provide for your safety and health, we ask that all individuals with medical problems inform the YMCA staff of such before starting any of our programs.

All cases of accident, injury or an unusual incident should be reported to the staff person on duty. The YMCA assumes no responsibility for injuries incurred while participating in YMCA activities. It is expected that anyone who uses the YMCA facilities carry their own medical insurance.

Food and drink is prohibited in all areas of the facilities except designated concession areas.

The YMCA is a tobacco-free facility. Please do not smoke or use tobacco products anywhere within the facility or grounds.
