Quakertown Branch to Begin Test-Mark-Protect Safety Guidelines


test mark gridYMCA of Bucks County is committed to providing a safe and enjoyable pool experience for all. Beginning October 28, aquatics at the Quakertown branch will rollout the Test-Mark-Protect program for all swimmers under age 12.

All children under age 12 must participate in a swimming skills assessment and will be provided a colored writeband based on their swimming ability. Once tested, each time a child comes into the Y for open swim they will need to acquire their color-appropriate wristband from the Welcome Center when checking in.

New pool signage is due to be installed on October 28 and will provide onsite guidance to parents and caregiveers.

For more information, please contact Becky Musselman, aquatics director, at bmusselman@ymcabucks.org.
