Water Safety Badges System
Noe Pond Club's Swimming Emblem System
The emblem that your child wears is an important part of the Noe Pond Club waterfront safety program developed to protect, teach and help safeguard your child. Each child under the age of 15 years will be tested to determine his or her degree of swimming ability and an emblem will be issued that corresponds to that level of achievement. The requirements and permitted activities have been abbreviated. Please see the emblem page for full descriptions.
