Aquatic Supervision

Parents Supervise, Lifeguards Save Lives

Your safety is very important to us and while there are lifeguards on hand, we ask you to follow these steps to help ensure your safety in and around our aquatic areas.

Active Supervision Policy

Even though lifeguards are on duty at public pools, parents still have a crucial role to play in the supervision of children while visiting facilities like ours.

It’s not about shifting responsibility, it’s about having both parents and lifeguards working together to keep children safe.

When swimming with children, parents need to remember:

  • Children under 5 need to be within arms reach at all times. This means you need to be in the water with your child.
  • Children under 12 require active supervision - always keep them in sight. Always be prepared to enter the water and maintain constant visual contact.

Minimise distractions such as mobile phones or chatting to other parents that may cause a lapse in supervision.

Most importantly always be prepared to get into the water. Remember Parents supervise, lifeguards save lives.

 

Weak/Non-Swimmer Policy

  • Tell a staff member if you are a Non-Swimmer, we’re here to help!
  • It’s ok to admit you are a non-swimmer, be recognised and survive
  • Wear a water safety orange wrist band while in the water to be recognised by lifeguards
  • Swim within safe depths according to your ability
  • Never swim in deep water if you are a Non-Swimmer
  • Be aware of drop zones in pools and abrupt depth change areas
  • Swim with a friend or companion
Please note: Lifeguards are employed on a 1:100 ratio; to help lifeguards supervise more effectively please advise staff if you are a non-swimmer, wear your wrist band and stay within safe depths commensurate with your ability.

If you wish to improve your swimming ability to be safe in and around water, please contact us.
