YMCA 11 Yr & Younger Policy

YMCA 11 Year Old & Younger Policy

Attention Audubon YMCA Dolphin Parents and Swimmers

Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult over age 18 while participating in or using a YMCA program or facility. In our case, this includes, Norristown Area High School and its facilities.  

  • Please make sure you accompany your children ages 11 & under into and out of the building before/after practice.
  • Please bring them to the pool for practice. 
  • Do not leave the facility while they are participating in a program.  
  • Please supervise them in the locker rooms before and after practices and in and out of the building.
  • Our coaching staff is not responsible for the swimmers outside of the program area (the pool or other areas if participating in Dry Land training) outside of their scheduled practice time. 
  • The YMCA will provide direct supervision for youth enrolled in YMCA programs during scheduled programs.

The Norristown Area High School facility is very large and we want your children to be safe.  YMCA facilities and services are available to all members within scheduled times. The YMCA will not be held responsible for the supervision of children outside program areas or beyond indicated program times. During non-scheduled programming, children age 11 and younger must be accompanied by a responsibel adult over the age of 18 at all times.


  • Can I leave the pool area or balcony and walk around the track?
    • Yes. As long as the YMCA staff can locate you if necessary.

    • Yes. As long as the YMCA staff can locate you if necessary.
  • Can I get in my car and go to the store while my 11 yr old child is in practice?
    • No.  A responsible adult 18 or older must be on the premises for each 11 yr old child or younger.
  • Can I quick run my swimmers sibling over to their program/event/practice?
    • Yes, if their program/event/practice is held on the Norristown Area High School facilities and the Y staff is able to locate you, if necessary.
    • No, if you have to leave the Norristown Areae High School facilities to get to their program/event/practice.
