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.
SAFE POOLS HAVE RULES!
*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.
