Pool Usage Rules
The following rules are guidelines for children’s use of the pool.
Adult swim is at the top of every hour for twenty minutes. Children over five years of age and who have red or blue badges are not permitted in the baby pool. Children must have a red badge to use the Upper Pool without an adult.
Swimmers without a badge must be accompanied by a parent and are restricted to the three-foot section of the pool. Swimmers without a badge who are wearing a lifejacket may go anywhere in the main pool (except the diving well), but must be accompanied by an adult. Lifejackets MUST be US Coast Guard Approved
Blue Badge: enables a swimmer to go anywhere they’d like in the main pool and upper pool without a parent. These swimmers may use both slides and the diving board.
Test: four laps of the pool (no doggie paddle) with a 10-second break in between each lap; two minutes of treading water in the deep end.
Red Badge: enables a swimmer to go anywhere they’d like in the main pool or upper pool, without a parent. They CANNOT use the Big Slide or diving board. The upper pool’s slide may be used.
Test: two laps of the pool (no doggie paddle) with a 10-second break in between each lap; one minute of treading water.
Badge tests are done during the Adult Swim only. Decisions about passing badge tests are FINAL. It is VERY COMMON for a child to try several times before passing the test.
