Remember that the lifeguards have the authority to ask swimmers to sit out or to leave the pool area if rules continue to be broken. To ensure that the lifeguards are not distracted from watching the pool we follow a three strikes rule. After three offenses (time outs) in a day, the member will be asked to leave the pool for the day. A phone call will be made to the parents to make sure they know of the problem. After three days where misbehavior has occurred, the member will be asked to be supervised by an adult for the remainder of the season. They will not be allowed to come to the pool without supervision.
No unsupervised swimmers.
