Pool admission standards assist lifeguards in maintaining adequate surveillance over the whereabouts and activities of young bathers while they are inside the pool enclosure.

Children 6 years of age and under must be directly supervised (within arm's reach) of a responsible person 15 years of age or older at all times regardless of swimming ability. The ratio of swimmers to guardians for this age group is 2:1.

Children 7, 8 and 9 years of age who are non-swimmers must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or group leader who is at least 15 years of age and responsible for their direct supervision. The ratio of non-swimmers to parent or guardian may be a maximum of 4 bathers to 1 (4:1) The ratio of non-swimmers to parent or guardian may be increased to a maximum of 8 bathers to 1 (8:1) if lifejackets are worn by all non-swimmers.

To swim without direct supervision (within arm's reach) you must successfully complete the facility swim test.

adult to child ratio for pool admission

Facility Swim Test

Individuals must demonstrate comfort in the water, at the discretion of the lifeguard. The Facility Swim Test is two uninterrupted widths of the pool without touching the pool bottom and putting your face in the water 4 times without the use of goggles. Aquatic staff reserves the right to ask any patron to complete the swim test.

Wrist Band Policy

We have a Wrist Band Policy to ensure that children have a safe and enjoyable swimming experience. This system allows staff to identify children at greater risk of accidents and ensure adequate supervision when in the pool area.

Red wrist band:

  • All children 6 years of age and under must swim within arm's reach of a parent or guardian 15 years of age or older in a 2:1 Ratio;
  • Children will be red banded before admittance to the pool.

Yellow wrist band:

  • Children ages 7, 8 and 9 will be yellow banded before admittance to the pool;
  • Children 7, 8 and 9 who do not pass the Facility Swim Test will remain yellow banded; those who do pass will be given a green band;
  • Yellow banded swimmers must be monitored in the following ratios by a guardian: 1 guardian to 4 swimmers.

Green wrist band:

  • Children 7, 8 and 9 who pass the Facility Swim Test may swim unaccompanied;
  • Children ages 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14 who wish to swim in the deep end of the pool must pass the Facility Swim Test and will be banded upon completion.

Swim Test Passed membership

Children ages 7, 8 and 9 are eligible to pay $2.00 for a Swim Test Passed membership card upon successful completion of the swim test. These children must present their Green wrist band on their arm to the front desk to show proof of eligibility. A Swim Test Passed membership card will be issued. Children can scan the card at the front desk and present it to Aquatics Staff to receive a Green Wrist Band upon entry.

Children ages 10-14 who wish to swim in the deep end of the pool may acquire the same Swim Test Passed membership to be allowed in the deep end of the pool.

At any time, the Aquatics staff may ask a child to re-take the swim test if they feel the child does not demonstrate the ability to maintain the swim admission standard.
