Changing room policy - ASA guidelines

Please be aware parents should not be in the changing rooms whilst swimmers are changing, unless their child is of an age where help is required - usually 8 or less (or older if they need specific assistance.) In such circumstances the parent must be the same gender as the child, unless the pool has mixed changing facilities, i.e. any male over 8 should be in male changing room and any female over 8 should be in the female changing room - ALWAYS. Anyone failing to comply will be asked to leave.

Swimming matters

Children with long hair MUST wear swimming hats, as long hair is a safety hazard. Lifeguards may well prevent entry to the pool if a swimmer is considered to pose a hazard to themselves or others. (This applies to boys and girls!!)

Girls must wear one piece costumes and boys must not wear loose leisure shorts

Please put names on all poolside kit - clearly with permanent ink markers - thank you
