Supervision of Under 8's

We have an Under 8 policy at the aquatic centre. Our job is to uphold all the policies and procedures and as this is a major one please be aware that the lifeguards will adhere to this. So, if your child is Under 8 then it is your responsibility to Actively Supervise them at all times in the facility - no reading, no electronics - just eyes on your child. It is the lifeguards responsibility to ensure you are doing this so they will approach you and ask you to watch your child. Refusal to do so will see your child being removed from the pool.  We get one chance to be a parent - enjoy it, we have great rates for you to swim with your child.

Under 3 & Under 8

Under 3 - all children under 3 must be accompanied in the pool and actively supervised by a caregiver over 16 years of age at all times

Under 8 - All children Under 8 must be Actively Supervised by a caregiver 16 years or over at all times.

Actively Supervised means watching your child at all times, and being able to provide immediate assistance when necessary.  We have a ratio of 3 children under 8 to 1 adult and must all in the same pool.
