Preschool Policy
Children under the age of 6 must be supervised by an adult or responsible youth at all times. To help preschool age children stay safe in and around the water, the City requires that all participants comply with the following policy: "For every two preschoolers under the age of 6, there must be one adult or responsible youth (16 years or older) within arm's length, supervising the preschoolers' water play and activity."  The best life preserver for your child is YOU!  Infants and toddlers participating in water play must wear an appropriate swim diaper.

Youth Under 16 

  • Youth ages 7-12 are allowed to use cardio equipment only and must be directly supervised by an adult.
  • Youth ages 13-15 are allowed to use cardio and strength equipment and must be directly supervised by an adult (unsupervised if they have a Youth Weight Room Card - obtained through an Introduction to Youth Weight Room Training).
