2016 Changes to Pool Operations—Important—Please Read
Computer Membership Database Check In/Out
Bittersweet Pool will now be utilizing a computerized membership database to check members in and out of the pool. It’s now a requirement that members stop at the front desk to check in and out each time that they come and go. As part of this new system swimmers under the age of 10 who have not passed the safety swimming test will be given a wristband each time that they enter the pool. The wristband indicates that the child is a “non-swimmer” and they MUST be within arms reach of their guardian while they are in the water. Each family will be required to fill out a membership demographics form (Class A or Class C membership form) prior to the swim season’s start, as well as having photos taken of each family member to be loaded into the system. There will be two “Photo Days” prior to the opening of the pool, if you would like to come early and have your photos loaded into the system. Otherwise, you will be stopped the 1st time that you come to the pool in 2016 to have your individual family photos loaded into the computer.
Saturday May 7th 10am-1pm Sunday May 15th 11am-2pm
NON-SWIMMER WRIST BAND POLICY
Drownings happen quickly and quietly even when lifeguards and parents are present. To prevent drownings it is imperative that parents and guardians actively watch their children in and around water, even when lifeguards are on duty. Splash Pool Services and Bittersweet pool are pleased to announce a new strategy to prevent drowning. This year all “non-swimmers” will be required to wear wristbands indicating that they must have a guardian within one arms reach. Wristbands are a great visual aid indicating swimming ability. They quickly and easily tell lifeguards and bystanders which swimmers require close supervision.
All swimmers under the age of 10 must pass a test swimming one length of the pool safely in order to swim without a wristband. These tests will be administered by a lifeguard on duty, daily, as requested by members. If the child cannot pass the swim test they must wear a wristband and be actively supervised by a guardian who is within one arms reach of them in the water. Swimming ability will be noted in the computer membership database, and non-swimmer wristbands will be given to those who need them each time they enter the facility. Swimmers may retake the swim test throughout the summer in order to prove their ability to stay safe on their own. The full policy will be available at the pool. Feel free to contact Splash to discuss any questions or concerns about the policy.
Thank you for your partnership in ensuring that Bittersweet pool stays as safe as it can be for your families and your guests!
