Aquatics Policies

We have rules for your safety.

Let's all be safe

Pool Rules

  • Obey the instructions of the lifeguards. They are there to keep you safe!

  • All swimmers must wear a bathing suit (100% Polyester Clothing). No cotton, denim, or undergarments is permitted.

  • Prolonged floating on one’s stomach or breath-holding is not permitted.

  • No running, pushing, shoulder rides, flipping, or dangerous horseplay.

  • No diving in water less than 6 feet deep.

  • No Climbing over walls, islands, or play structures.

  • No food or drinks, other than water, are allowed in the aquatics area.

  • We only allow U.S. Coast Guard-approved flotation devices. We are more than happy to check for you. We do have life jackets available to use at no cost. Flotation devices like inner tubes, lounges, and other outside items are subject to approval by staff.

  • Children 6 and under must have an adult with them in the water and within an arm’s length at all times.

  • Swim diapers must be used for all children who are not properly potty trained.

  • If there is a fecal incident in the pool, we are mandated by Maricopa County Code to shut down for a minimum of one hour. In serious cases, it may be shut down 24 hours. We apologize for the inconvenience, but it is for your safety.

  • Multiple violations of outlined rules can result in loss of privileges, suspension, or expulsion.

  • No glassware is allowed within pool enclosures.

  • No animals are allowed except for service animals.

  • Shower and use the restroom before entering the pool.

  • One rider at a time. Absolutely no trains or chains of riders are permitted. When finished, exit the catch pool immediately. No person may catch another at the bottom of the slide.

  • Riders must go downslide on their back or bottom, feet first. Kneeling, standing, spinning, or stopping is not permitted.

Lap Swimming

  • If multiple lanes are in use by lap swimmers, a circular pattern will be used when more than 2 swimmers are in a lane. Swim in a counterclockwise direction and with those of similar swimming ability. Swimmers being passed or passing others should consider switching lanes. The lifeguard has the authority to assign lanes for maximum usage.

  • Kickboards, pull buoys, paddles and fins may be used for fitness training during lap swim. Equipment is only available for adults unless prior approval by staff.
