Pool Admission Standards

Admission standards apply child to parent/guardian ratios as a means of increasing direct supervision of young children, particularly those that are non-swimmers. The additional level of supervision assists lifeguards in maintaining adequate surveillance of the whereabouts and activities of young bathers while inside the pool enclosure.

 The Office of the Chief Coroner's (Coroner) recommended admission standards for supervised public pools are:

 Children under the age of ten (10) would require supervision or be able to demonstrate comfort in the water by passing a facility swim test

  • A child under the age of ten is assumed to be a non-swimmer upon admittance to the pool and must be accompanied and directly supervised by a guardian of at least 12 years of age.
  • Children aged 6 to 9 may be admitted unaccompanied if they can pass a facility swim test administered by a lifeguard.
  • All children under the age of 6 must be accompanied and directly supervised by a guardian.

Recommended Supervision Ratio

 

Children under age 6

 

Maximum Two children to one guardian (2:1)

 

 

Children aged 6 to 9 who are non-swimmers

Four children to one guardian (4:1)

or

Eight children with lifejackets to one guardian (8:1)

Examples:  

  • A family with a 1 year old, 3 year old and a 6 year old non-swimmer must have direct supervision from atleast 2 parent/guardians
  • A family with a 2 year old, 4 year old and a 7 year old swimmer (passed the swim test) must have direct supervision from atleast 1 parent/guardian
  • If you have any questions about the required ratio for your family, please contact the pool and the staff will assist you
