Swim Class Rules / Dress Code:

1. We require that girls wear modest bathing suits (no bare mid-drifts or bikinis) and boys wear modest swimming trunks (no bikini, Speedo style). Lifeguards will require girls to put on a colored T-shirt if this is not followed.

2. Any swimmer with pink eye, open wounds or infections will not be allowed in the water.

3. Please be respectful of the lifeguards. They are there for your safety and have the authority to stop a situation or close an area/activity which they deem as unsafe. They also have the authority to ask someone to leave the pool if they are not following the rules.
