Did you know we are a Watch around Water Facility

This program has been developed by Aquatics & Recreation Victoria and Life Saving Victoria to educate the public about adequate supervision and to encourage parent/guardians to take on this responsibility when visiting a public aquatic facility. 

 

Children under 5 years old

  • Children under 5 years old must be constantly supervised by a parent/guardian.

  • Adequate supervision requires the parent/guardian to accompany the child in the water and remain within arm's reach of the child at all times. The child must also be wearing a YELLOW wrist band.

     

Children under 10 years old

  • Children under 10 years old will not be admitted without an appropriate parent/guardian. The parent guardian must be 16 years and over and adhere to all conditions of entry.

  • Children under 10 years old must be constantly supervised by a parent/guardian while in the aquatic area of the centre. The child must be wearing a RED wrist band.

  • The parent/guardian must position himself or herself to have a clear view of the child with no physical or structural barriers between them and the child.

     

Children 10 years and older

  • For children 10 years and older, parents must use their knowledge of the child's swimming ability to determine the level of accompaniment required. Parent /guardians are not required to be present in the centre.
