Swim Test

In order for children to swim in the lap pool without an adult they are required to pass a swim safety test. The test consists of 2 parts:

  1. Tread water for one minute
  2. Swim the length of the pool
Once the child passes the swim test their name will be added to a list at the lifeguard stand and they will be given a wrist band to swim in the pool. They only need to pass the test once per summer; the next time you go to the pool just check in at the lifeguard stand to get your wristband.

Safety Breaks

For the safety of our swimmers, we have regular safety breaks scheduled at the pool. The breaks occur 15 minutes before the hour beginning at 11:45. Adults are allowed to lap swim during these safety breaks. Children must remain out of the pool until the safety break is over.

Pool Safety

The lifeguards are responsible for the aquatic safety of our residents and to prevent drowning. Please help them and follow the rules so we can have an enjoyable and safe summer at the pool.

Your Pool Team

Please join us in welcoming Zeke Evans, who is our Aquatic Coordinator from the YMCA who will help us maintain and manage the pool this summer. Thank you Zeke! If you have any questions or comments regarding the lifeguard staff or the pool management please reach out to Zeke at EEvens@denverymca.org.

The lifeguards are here for you! They want to ensure we have a safe and fun swim environment.

Weather Policy

The feels like temperature outside must be 60 degrees or higher for our pool to open. If lightning or inclement weather is spotted the pool will close for safety and reopen when the weather has passed. The pool and pool deck will be cleared when either of the following is occurring:

  1. Cloud to ground lightning is observed and less than 30 seconds pass from seeing the lightning and hearing the thunder from the flash.
  2. In cloud lightning is occurring directly overhead.
Storms do not have to be severe to contain large numbers of cloud to ground flashes in order to be considered dangerous. The pool can be considered safe to re-occupy 30 minutes after the last lightening is seen.

Notes from our Lifeguards about the weather policy:

  • We use the Weather Bug app for all weather information. We specifically use Legacy stadium at Cherokee Trail as our closest station.
  • We will stay open if it is just raining if we can see the bottom of the pool.
  • We close when lightening is 10 miles away from us.
  • If the weather looks bad to the point we will not reopen within an hour, we put all staff on call. This means when it is safe to open we can call the staff back to reopen and let everyone in. This also means at least two guards must be on site to open due to CPR protocol.
