Facility swim test

Take a facility swim test in order to determine the level of supervision your child requires while at the pool and permission to swim in the deep end. To pass the facility swim test, you need to:

  • complete a 25-metre front swim with your face in the water
  • tread water for one minute

Swim admission standards

While attending one of our drop-in swim programs, you are required to meet our admissions standards and supervision ratios. If you don't follow these standards, you won't be able to use the pool facility.

Children who are six years old or younger, regardless of their swimming ability, must be directly supervised in the water by a parent or guardian. The parent or guardian must be at least 14 years of age. While supervising a child under the age of six, you must remain within arm's reach of the child at all times in order to provide immediate help, if necessary.

You can supervise a maximum of two children under the age of six at a time.
