Our Aquatics staff is ready to serve you and keep you safe this season. All staff will be utilizing a "3 Strikes, You're Out" policy with our youth members. This means that if a child is breaking a rule or behaving in an unsafe manner, they will be reminded of the rule (Strike 1). The second time, they will be reminded and warned of consequences (Strike 2). The third time will be an immediate removal from the pool and they will be required to have a seat on the bench for 5 minutes (Strike 3).
We ask that parents support our staff and maintain an enjoyable environment for every member by actively supervising your children in and around the pool area. Please take a moment and review pool rules and general pool safety with your child at the beginning of the season. It is not our wish to bench children, but it is important that our Staff be clear around pool rules and expectations. Eliminating repeated warnings allows our Lifeguards to stay focused on aquatic safety for all.
If your swimmer wishes to swim in the deep end, past the black line, please arrange with the Gate Keeper to have your child take the swim test. The Lifeguard on duty will administer swim tests during the swim break.
Just a reminder that our youth members must be at least 12 years old or accompanied by a responsible member 16 years or older to be at the pool. Thank you in advance for your support of our staff.
Questions regarding pool rules or general safety concerns, contact our Pool Manager.
