Code of Conduct

To promote safety and comfort for all, we ask individuals to act appropriately at all times when they are in our facility or participating in our programs. We expect persons using the Saratoga Regional YMCA to behave in a mature and responsible way and to respect the rights and dignity of others. Our Code of Conduct does not permit language or any action that can hurt or frighten another person or that falls below a generally accepted standard of conduct.

Due to COVID-19 we currently expect all members to adhere to the strict safety protocols and guidelines set forth by the CDC, and both state and local health departments.

 Specifically, this includes, but is not limited to:

  • Appropriate attire must be worn at all times. Offensive wording on shirts or accessories is inappropriate.
  • We do not tolerate harassment or intimidation by words, gestures, and body language or any other menacing behavior.
  • Unwarranted physical contact with another person in any angry, inappropriate, or threatening way is not permitted.
  • Theft or behavior which results in the destruction of property is not permitted.
  • Using or possessing illegal drugs or alcohol while in or on YMCA property is not permitted.
  • Loitering is not permitted in or outside the YMCA.
  • No firearms, shotguns or rifles are permitted on SRYMCA premises.
  • The demonstration of any sexual activity or engaging in sexual conduct with another person is not permitted.

The Saratoga Regional YMCA is a tobacco-free environment. Use of tobacco products is not allowed on our property, including electronic cigarettes.

Members who are listed as registered sex offenders will have their membership terminated for the safety of the children and families in our facility. We reserve the right to do background checks on members.

Members and guests are encouraged to be responsible for their personal comfort and safety. A member or guest who feels unsafe or uncomfortable should report the situation to a staff person.

Video recorders, cameras or any other visual recording devices are not allowed within the Saratoga Regional YMCA without prior written permission of the CEO.

A parent, guardian or other adult member must accompany any child under the age of 10 while they are in the facility, including the pool.

All reported incidents will be reviewed by the Executive Director of the Branch.
