What is Adult Swim? Adult Swim occurs at ten till each hour. No one under the age of 16 is allowed in the pool. (Infants not crawling or walking may remain in the pool with a parent during adult swim.) The purpose of adult swim is to allow adults a chance to swim without being splashed or jumped on. It also provides a break for our lifeguards. It is the responsibility of the parent or guardian to teach and enforce this rule with their children. Those caught not following the rules will be asked to leave.
What is Family Swim? Family Swim occurs every evening from 7:00 p.m. to closing. Lifeguards are performing closing duties and are not on guard duty. Families are responsible for themselves. Therefore, any child under 16 must be actively supervised by an adult or they will be asked to get out of the pool.
How old must you be to go to the pool without adult supervision? Kids must be 11 years of age and pass an Advanced Swim test each year. Swimming proficiency tests will be administered to children 11, 12 and 13 who want to attend without an adult. Information on the test is available at the pool. Teens must be 14 years of to bring guests to the pool or attend alone.
Is there a guest fee? Yes. Guests are registered at check-in and the fee is $5 for a daily pass. Guest fees are waived for registered grandchildren of residents when accompanied by a resident grandparent. There is a four guest per family per day limit. Residents must remain in attendance with guests at all times
Avoiding Recreational Water Illnesses (RWI’s)
Bacteria like E. coli (Escherichia coli) occur naturally in the soil, and can cause diarrhea or other recreational water illnesses if they are ingested. Recreational water illnesses are caused by germs spread by swallowing, breathing in mists or aerosols of, or having contact with contaminated water in swimming pools, hot tubs, water parks, water play areas, interactive fountains, lakes, rivers, or oceans.
RWIs can cause a wide variety of infections, including gastrointestinal, skin, ear, respiratory, eye, neurologic, and wound infections. The most commonly reported RWI is diarrhea. Diarrheal illnesses can be caused by germs such as Crypto (short for Crytosporidium), Giardia, Shigella, norovirus and E. coli. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in the past two decades, there has been an increase in the number of RWI outbreaks associated with swimming.
The chlorine used in swimming pools, hot tubs, and other water venues kills germs that cause RWIs, but chlorine doesn’t work right away. It takes time to kill germs, and some (like Cryptosporidium or “Crypto") can live in properly chlorinated pools for days.
Swimmers have an essential role in helping to protect themselves, their families, and others from RWIs. Follow the steps below to ensure that your swimming experience is healthy, and RWI-free!
Three Steps for All Swimmers
Keep germs from causing recreational water illnesses (RWIs):
•Don't swim when you have diarrhea. You can spread germs in the water and make other people sick.
•Don't swallow the pool or lake water. Avoid getting water in your mouth.
•Practice good hygiene. Shower with soap before swimming and wash your hands after using the toilet or changing diapers. Germs on your
body end up in the water.
Three Steps for Parents of Young Kids
Keep germs out of the pool:
•Take your kids on bathroom breaks or check diapers often. Waiting to hear "I have to go" may mean that it's too late.
•Change diapers in a bathroom or a diaper-changing area and not at poolside. Germs can spread in and around the pool.
