Aquatic Center

Any child who does not pass and is under 4 feet tall will be considered a non-swimmer and must swim with an adult (one adult per child). To pass, the child must swim one 25-yard length of the pool comfortably, as determined by the lifeguard staff. Non-swimming children who are at least 4 feet tall can be in the shallow end of the pool without an adult. l Lifeguard staff will clarify/enforce pool rules.
