We have a wide variety of life jackets in all sizes. Our rule is that any person under the age of 16 must pass the swim test in order to leave the shallow end. The swim test is swimming 25 yards non-stop with a front crawl stroke. If they cannot pass the swim test or do not want to take it, they must wear a lifejacket out of the shallow end.

Open swim is defined as a time for anyone to do any type of swimming. Generally we have at least two lap lanes available during open swim unless we have over 50 people in the pool.
