Swim standards for children
Our facility uses a coloured banding system to identify at-risk swimmers, and ensure adequate supervision ratios. If you are bringing children with you, please review the supervision requirements carefully before you arrive to avoid disappointment.
Ages 5 and under
Children will receive a RED BAND and 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)
Ages 6 to 9
Children must complete a Facility Swim Test. If they do not pass, they must stay within arm's reach of the guardian and wear a 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
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 of their guardian (12 years and older).
