Water Safety at the Old Colony YMCA

The safety of our members and guests is important to us.  That is why we have partnered with Jeff Ellis & Associates, utilizing their Aquatic Risk Management Program that provides proactive standards, policies, and procedures grounded in risk-management principles. Designed to build on and augment the new International Lifeguard Training Program (ILTP), the Comprehensive Aquatic Risk Management Program provides in-house Lifeguard training, CPR, First Aid, Emergency Oxygen, and AED training.

All Old Colony YMCA lifeguards are held to a higher standard and commitment as a lifeguard.  An additional lifeguard certification is required, monthly in-service training and frequent unannounced audits are conducted.  We believe that this proactive program keeps our guards rescue ready and prepared to deal with an aquatic emergency.  Do not be surprised if you are using our swimming pool and we conduct an emergency rescue scenario.  We feel that it is important to make all training scenarios as realistic as possible.  We even use a child mannequin, known as Timmy, in some of these rescue scenarios.

This investment in safety by the Old Colony YMCA is incomparable in our region.

Please search our programs to view our current aquatic offerings.

YMCA Method of Teaching Swim Lessons

Swim lessons at the YMCA are designed to promote comfort levels and provide the skills to thrive in aquatic environments.  We accomplish this with a combination of our five swim program components:

1.     Personal safety
2.     Personal growth
3.     Stroke development
4.     Rescue
5.     Water sports and games

All of our swim programs are designed to engage the swimmer and to develop their swim skills through educational and fun activities. 

The Y has an appropriate swim lesson for all ages and levels, so come on in and swim with us!
