SWIM TIME

The first hour of your party will be designated for swim time at our indoor pool. You will have a designated swim area and children must stay within this area at all times while swimming. (Children 6 months and under are not allowed in the pool.) Children under 48” must be within arms reach of a parent/guardian while in the water, whether wearing a life-jacket or not.

STATE LAW

State law requires showering before entering the pool. We have a shower on the pool deck that you can use. People with communicable diseases may not enter the pool area.

WHAT TO BRING

Everyone must wear a swimsuit. Life jackets are not provided but you are welcome to bring your own Coast Guard-approved jacket. Proper swimwear is required in the Aquatic Center at all times. Acceptable floatation devices are puddle jumpers and life-jackets. Noodles may be used as a toy but not as a floatation device.

WHAT TO LEAVE AT HOME

Cutoffs, see-through clothes, and diapers without waterproof pants are not permitted. Do not wear street shoes into the Aquatic Center.
