- The only flotation devices that may be worn are US Coast Guard approved life jackets. You may bring your own or use the ones at the pool.

Navy Youth Swim Test
The Navy Youth Swim Test is required for all pool users under the age of 17. This program will help identify swimmers and non-swimmers within the facility creating a safer pool for everyone.
Non-Swimmers are any youth who cannot or chooses not to pass the Navy Youth Swim Test.
Non-swimmers must stay in designated swim areas
Non-Swimmers who are shorter than 4’6” when measured at the pool are not allowed in the water without a supervising party who is at least 16 years of age.
Non-Swimmers who are taller than 4’6” will receive a red wristband at the pool. This allows them to use the shallow end of the pool without assistance.
Swimmers are considered those youth who can demonstrate the following minimum standards:
- Swim one length of the pool unassisted and without rest. Swimmers must use a recognizable front stroke (front crawl stroke or breast stroke) for the entire distance
- Jump into the deep end and fully submerge and return to the surface
- Tread water for 60 seconds
- Exit the pool on their own
Once a youth has demonstrated they can perform the minimum standards they will be given a “Navy Youth Swim License” which is good for 1 year from the date of issue.
Any lifeguard on duty can require a child to retake the Navy Youth Swim Test if they are uncomfortable with child’s swimming skills
The Swim license must be shown at the facility upon entering in order to receive a green wristband. This wristband allows access to all areas of the swimming pool currently open.
Children between the ages of 10-15 may use the facility without a parent ONLY if they have a Navy Youth Swim License.
