Our facility uses a banding system to identify at-risk swimmers. 

5 years of age and under - Red Band

Children must be within arm's reach of a guardian (12 years or older) at all times, regardless of swimming ability. 

  • Children under the age of 5 may not be admitted to the swimming pool unless they are accompanied by a parent or guardian
  • One guardian will be required for every two children (1:2) 

6 - 9 years of age

Children must successfully complete the facility swim test in order to swim independently of their guardian (12 years or older). If they do not pass, they must stay within arm's reach of the guardian and wear red band. 

  • One guardian will be required for every four children (1:4)
  • One guardian may supervise up to eight children (1:8) wearing lifejackets

Facility Swim Test

To pass the facility swim test, children must swim two widths of the pool, face in the water, without stopping while demonstrating a regular breathing pattern. If completed successfully the swimmer will receive a green band which allows them to swim independently.
