Under 8 Water Safety

Take the responsibility; keep your children safe. We want everyone to enjoy the pool as much as we do so help us ensure safe swimming year round by keeping an eye on your under 8s!

Freyberg Community Pool upholds pool safety via the Community Leisure Management Pool Alone Policy. This stipulates:

All children under 8 years must be actively supervised by a caregiver who is 16 years old or older at all times. Children will be prevented from admitting the facility if this is not adhered to.

Under 5 years must be within arm's reach of their caregiver (who is 16 years old or older) at all times.

In addition, ALL CHILDREN UNDER 5 YEARS AND THEIR CAREGIVERS MUST WEAR A RED WRISTBAND for the duration of their visit at the facility. This helps identify our at risk swimmers and who should be keeping a watchful eye on them.
