Pool admission standards

View our required pool admission standards 

As part of our commitment to providing safe and enjoyable aquatic programs for swimmers of all ages, we are continuing to enforce the admission standards provided to us by the Ministry of Health.  To help maintain this standard please keep the following in mind when visiting our pools.

 

During a Family Swim: 

Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a guardian who is 18 years+ who is in the pool swimming with them in proper swim attire.

  • There must be one supervising caregiver for every 2 children under the age of 6.
  • There must be one supervising caregiver for every 4 non-swimming children aged 6 to 9.

 

Parents and guardians are responsible for the children in their care while in the facility and must directly supervise the children at all times.
