GETTING TO KNOW YOUR Y
CODE OF CONDUCT
At the Y we expect staff, members and guests to behave in accordance with our mission and values, respecting the rights and dignity of others.
At the Y we demonstrate Respect, Responsibility, Caring and Honesty by:
- Speaking in respectful tones and refraining from the use of vulgar or derogatory language
- Resolving conflicts in a respectful, honest and caring manner
- Respecting the property of others
- Creating a safe environment free of weapons, alcohol and/or drugs
- Reporting to a YMCA staff person any suspicious or inappropriate behavior
Adherence to the Code of Conduct is essential. Noncompliance may result in suspension or termination of membership privileges and/or use of the facility.
The Y is a family-oriented organization, and proper attire must always be worn throughout all areas of our facilities. Shoes and shirts must be worn in all areas of the facility except for the locker rooms and swimming pool. Street shoes are not permitted on any wood floors or the pool deck. Black sole shoes are not permitted on the courts. Do not use cameras or video recording devices in any Y locker room.
- Duffy: No jeans, cut-off shorts, sandals or just sports bras in the Duffy Wellness Center.
- Pool: Proper swimsuits must be worn when using the pool; undergarments and street clothes are not allowed in the pool. Swim diapers must be worn at all times by children in the pool area who are not potty trained.
- Steam rooms: please wear a towel or bathing suit.
These practices will ensure all Y members' standards of privacy are respected and safety is prioritized.
TALK TO US
This is your Y and your suggestions and comments are always welcome. Y staff are known for being friendly, responsive and caring people. Please feel free to contact any of our staff to ask questions or make suggestions using the boxes located near the Welcome Center and in the Child Care Center.
NO ONE IS TURNED AWAY BECAUSE OF AN INABILITY TO PAY
We are proud of our mission to build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. Through the support of donors to the Open Arms Financial Assistance Fund, financial assistance is offered based on household income and size and is available to all who qualify. Applications for program and membership assistance are available at the Welcome Center and on the website.
LOST AND FOUND
If you lose something on site, promptly check with the Welcome Center for lost and found articles. We hold items found within the facility in Lost and Found for a limited time.
We do everything we can to ensure your security and safety while on any Y premises. That's why we place so much emphasis on the use of membership IDs for check-ins. However, we cannot be responsible for any theft or damage to your personal property, either in our buildings or parking lots. Please remember, you are responsible for securing any items you bring on site.
We recommend that you leave valuables at home, and protect the property you do choose to bring by securing it in a locker in a locker room (you must provide your own lock). YMCA staff are not permitted to hold or watch your valuables for you. Also note that we do not recommend leaving valuables in a locked car.
If you do have one of your possessions stolen or damaged, please complete an incident report at the Welcome Center. Be assured that we do track such incidents and take any steps we can to prevent them from happening again. We seek to apprehend perpetrators whenever possible. The Y will prosecute those engaging in criminal activity on its premises.
In short, our policy is this: no weapons of any kind at any time on YMCA property. Regardless of any valid license to possess, YMCA members are prohibited from carrying onto YMCA property any firearms, Tasers, large knives or other objects YMCA staff determine to be dangerous to the safety of members.
