Tiger Sports Camp - YMCA Swimming Rules

Friday, June 7, 2013

Today we went to the Spring Woods High School Natatorium for a sports camp. We learned about all the sports SWHS has to offer such as Track, Baseball, Soccer, Volleyball & Tennis. Students met with head coaches and a chance to play each sport.

Later in the day, the YMCA came out to talk to the students about water safety and the rules of the pool.

 *No horseplay, profanity, running or unnecessary roughness - we want you to be safe!
*We do not permit the following around the pool area: gum, candy, glass objects, smoking or alcohol.
*Shower before you enter the pool.
*If children are wearing diapers, they must use swim diapers and plastic bottoms over the diapers. Please do not change diapers on the pool deck.
*Inflatable swim aids are not allowed.
*Diving is not allowed in water less than 9 feet deep.
*Underwater distance swimming and breath-holding are not permitted.
*When in the water, children under the age of 6 must be within arm's distance of a parent of caregiver who is at least 16 years old.
*Children under the age of 12 must have a parent or caregiver on the pool deck with them at all times.
*Children under the age of 16 who wish to use the diving boards or swim in depths exceeding their heights must pass a swim test.
*Individuals who wish to use the slide must follow specified usage guidelines along with manufacture's height requirements and pass a swim test.
*The lifeguard's word is final.
