Swim testing:

Any swimmer entering the deep water will be required to perform a deep-water test during recreational swims. Adults may be asked to take a swim test at the lifeguard’s discretion.

Deep End Test:

At Lifeguard Discretion for Safety/ Endurance:

  1. Swim one length of the pool or equivalent.
  2. Tread water without touching the pool sides & bottom for 1 minute.
  3. Deep Water Plunge: Swimmer must jump into the deep end and recover to the surface.

Shallow Water Test

  1. Float on back and roll to front.
  2. Recover from floating position to standing position.

Swimmers who cannot pass either test or refuse to take either test will be issued a Personal Flotation Device (PFD). If a Child is Dependent on a Lifejacket/ PFD, a parent/ guardian must remain within an arm’s reach of the child.

Lap Swim
 

  1. Swimmers should select a lane, suitable to your swimming speed when entering into a “current” lap swimmer.
  2. Inform other swimmers in a lane before entering that lane.
  3. When two or more swimmers are in a lane, please keep to the right side of the lane and circle swim.
  4. When there are only two swimmers in a lane they may agree to swim side by side.
  5. Slower swimmers must yield to faster swimmers at turns.
  6. The lifeguard may ask a swimmer to move to another lane if they have not selected a lane appropriate for their speed.

Open Swim
 

  1. See swim testing policy above.
  2. Only Coast Guard Approved PFDs are permitted during recreational swims. The use of these items is restricted to the shallow end of the pool.
  3. Swimmers less than 48 inches in height MUST have a parent/guardian in the pool area. Parents must be in the pool with any child under 48 inches that did not pass the deep end swim test and must keep them within arm’s length at ALL times.
  4. Children who are not FULLY toilet trained MUST wear a swim diaper.
  5. Inflatable flotation devices are not permitted.

Family Swim
 

  1. At least one parent or guardian must accompany children into the pool when dependent on any form of flotation device. SEE OPEN SWIM RULES
  2. All open swim rules apply.

Water Aerobic Classes
 

  1. Be sure to go at individual pace. Do NOT over exert yourself.
  2. Heart Rate checks will be conducted throughout the classes, be sure to monitor yourself.
  3. Be respectful of the instructor and patrons, continuous talking is a distraction for participants trying to hear and the instructors trying to communicate. Instructors are responsible to provide safety reminders and need to be able to be heard.

Swim Lesson:
 

  1. If a participant is not meeting the class requirements upon first class evaluation, we will place them into a class that is best suited for their success.
  2. All pool rules will be enforced during lessons.

As always Safety is our Primary Concern ~ there are many other points of safety that may not be listed. Our staff will be sure to communicate if needed.

Anchor Bay School District is in the planning stages to expand our preschool programs to meet this initiative.

Any family that would be interested in have their child attend preschool at Anchor Bay is encouraged to fill out the survey.
