‚ÄčPool Admission Information

SwimmingChart-01.png

In addition to our existing admission standards, it is recommended that participants between the ages of 10-15 years be accompanied by a parent/guardian who is a minimum of 16 years of age. The parent/guardian for those aged 10-15 years would pay admission and remain in the pool enclosure to supervise, be available for any first aid incidents, and to ensure the physical distancing of 2 meters/6 feet is maintained throughout the swim (with the exception of those who are within your group). There is no maximum number of children per guardian for this age group. This recommendation is meant to decrease contact between staff and the public while promoting safe distancing in the event of an emergency.

Each parent/guardian may bring a maximum of 4 children between the ages of 6 and 9 or a maximum of 2 children under 6 years of age.

Green Wristband = ages 10+

  • May swim out of arm's reach from supervising guardian, however it is recommended a supervising guardian remain in the pool enclosure and pay admission.

Yellow Wristband = ages 6 to 9 years

  • Ratio: 1:4 (guardian must be 16 years +)
  • May attempt a facility swim test to obtain an additional green wrist band. If successful, child does not need to be within arm's reach, however, supervising guardian must pay admission and remain in the pool enclosure. If the swim test is unsuccessful or not attempted, child must remain within arms reach at all times.

Red Wristband = ages 5 years and under

  • Ratio: 1:2 (guardian must be 16 years +)
  • Children must be within arm's reach of a supervising guardian at all times

All swimmers will be screened at the entrance to obtain the appropriate wristbands. Groups that do not meet the admission standards will not be permitted entry.
