Outdoor Pool Rules

Members may bring 5 guests per account, not 5 guests per member. Nationwide reciprocity will not be honored at the Outdoor pool. Only members 18+ can bring guests to the pool. No day passes are available unless you are a paid guest of Greater Philadelphia YMCA member.

Guests ages 2 and up are charged a $12 fee per visit and must present valid ID. Guest passes are only sold at the Membership Desk, and not available online or at the outdoor check-in station. Guest pass purchases are non-refundable and must be used on the day purchased.

Waivers must be signed by guests at the time of registration for the passes. Guests must present the receipt given at the time of purchase at the outdoor pool check-in station to enter the pool.

Guest passes are available throughout pool operating hours Monday-Friday. On weekends, guest passes are only sold prior to 5:00 PM. No guest passes will be sold on holidays including: Memorial Day, July 4th, and Labor Day.

If there is thunder or lightning, all pools, decks, and bath house areas will be cleared immediately. We will reopen pools 30 minutes after the last sight of lightning or sound of thunder. Please enter and exit through the pool gates. Bathrooms and showers are open. Only swim diapers are permitted in the pool. 

Coolers and outside food are allowed. Alcoholic beverages are prohibited. Smoking, vaping, and glass containers are not permitted.

All swimmers 16 and under must be swim tested and banded. Two tests are available – a shallow water test and a deep water test. Please see an off-duty lifeguard if your child wants to take the swim test.

Children 12 and under who cannot pass either swim test will be required to wear a flotation device. Members 13-16 years old who cannot pass either swim test can get a red band, but do not need a life jacket.

Children 6 and under must be accompanied in the water by an adult even after successful completion of the shallow or deep water test. Those who do not wish to take the swim test can enter the pool with a floatation device.

Please bring Coast Guard-approved flotation for all non-swimmers or those whose do not wish to take the swim test. These can include lifejackets and puddle jumpers. Nothing inflatable will be permitted for use as a flotation device.

A very limited number of flotation devices will be available. Flotation devices are not a substitute for adequate supervision. Infant floatation devices that can be sat in are not permitted.

We will have slides open this summer for members. Slides will be available only during designated times.

All riders 16 and under must be swim tested and banded. 

There will be no mermaid tails or blow up toys permitted at the Outdoor Pool.
