Without exception, all babies/toddlers who are not completely toilet trained, regardless of age, must wear the double swim nappy system. https://www.splashabout.com/
This is a proper swim nappy or liner along with the neoprene nappy over the top. No swimmers will be permitted to swim without this. Our Teachers will return swimmers to parents if they see that the correct nappy is not being used and no refund will be issued for the missed lesson. We must protect the cleanliness of our pool. All used nappies must be taken away with you.
Always change your baby on the floor using a suitable changing mat or towel, which you must bring with you each week. Do not use the benches in the changing cubicles. This is to prevent babies from rolling onto the floor from high surfaces, which can easily happen. Bring a suitable carry chair for baby to sit in safely and place on this on the floor whilst you are changing.
Swimming hats must be worn by all swimmers. Exceptions will be made for children with Special Needs. If hats are not worn hair must be securely tied up and back from face. No clips or hair bows please!
