    • Adequate supervision requires the parent/guardian to accompany the child in the water and remain within arm's reach of the child at all times.
    • Children under 5 years – their parent will be required to wear a wrist band, this allows the parent to be easily identified when a small child is left unattended.

    • The parent/guardian must position himself or herself to have a clear view of the child with no physical or structural barriers between them and the child.
    • Children 5-11 years old will be issued with a wristband upon entry.  This wristband must be worn whilst in the Centre. Children participating in structured lessons/programs under the supervision of an instructor/coach will not be required to wear a wristband (unless swimming before or after their lesson).

    Children 12 years and over

    • For children 12 years and older, parents must use their knowledge of the child's swimming ability to determine the level of supervision required.
