Showering

All patrons must shower prior to entering the pool. This enables us to maintain excellent water quality for all patrons to enjoy. Showers are located on pool deck of both pools and also in the change room facilities.

Duty of Care

The Swimming Instructor’s “Duty of Care” begins when your child is placed in their lesson and ceases at the end of their lesson. Children must not be left without supervision at any time during your visit to the Aquatic Safety Training Academy. Children and all other patrons are not permitted to enter the pools unless they are participating in a swimming lesson. You must ensure that you collect your child from their lesson on time. Whilst we know that children are exuberant and often very excited about their swimming lessons, we ask that they stay within arms’ reach whilst moving around the Aquatic Safety Training Academy and that you do not allow them to run during your visit.
