It's Memorial Day weekend and we know many of you are planning a picnic or will be outside at some point. (We hope the rain stays away!) Take your time on the roads, use all safety precautions around the grill. And, if you're bringing your dog along, here are some reminders about their safety, most notably keep them away from table scraps and out of earshot of fireworks.

The pools at the YMCA are open this weekend. Yay! We love summertime! But one thing to remember if you’re under 16 years of age. In order to swim at the Y’s pools, you must complete a swim test administered by a Y lifeguard. All swimmers who pass the test will receive a wristband to wear each time they come to the pool. Swimmers are required to take the test just once but can re-test any time. Duck Creek's Caitlin Gagnon, who was a lifeguard for 5 years and a swim coach for 4 years, likes the wristband system. "Swim tests are a great way for us to keep your kid safe. By having zones for each level of swimming ability, kids have a safe place to improve their swimming skills without getting out of their depth. Lifeguards help enforce the zones that each wristband can swim in, but it's important for parents and guardians to talk with their children about pool safety, too." There are three different levels/colors of wristbands for children. Green signifies a child can go anywhere in the pool; yellow signifies the swimmer may go only in shallow water and red wristbands signify non-swimmers who must have in-water supervision at the pool. The YMCA of Greater Cincinnati’s guidelines and tests for swim wristbands can be found here: http://myy.org/swimming-water-safety-and-guidelines#swimming_wristbands

Our 5/3 Lunchtime Fitness crew is working hard today! They're almost halfway into their 4-week program. We will check back in with them on their final day to see how much progress they've made on their fitness journey.

The Twins in the Gym took a trip to Richard E. Lindner YMCA to demonstrate how to do a swim band test! Even though Duck Creek doesn't have a pool, we want all of our members to be safe in the pool as they start their summers this Memorial Day Weekend. All YMCA of Greater Cincinnati pools require that children under 16 take a swim band test before swimming.
