Rules & FAQ

Swim Testing

(Ages 14 & Under)

During open swim times, children under 14 & under will need to pass our swimming test in order to swim without lifejacket. Test includes a 25 yard swim followed immediately by 1 min. of treading water. If the child does not pass they can enter the pool with a life jacket. Testing will take place for 10 min. every hour on the hour. 

Swim Diapers

We require snug fitting swim diapers with elastic on top and legs for all children who are not 100% potty trained & ALL CHILDREN 3 & UNDER. No disposable diapers allowed. Diapers are available for purchase at the pool.

Non-Swimmer Fee

A fee is charged for all persons entering the pool regardless if they are swimming or not. The Non-Swimmer Fee is waived the last hour of everyday.
