Water Exercise Class Protocol

  • Class size will be limited to 25 participants. If you wish to participate, you must sign in on the sign in sheet located at the lifeguard table outside the Family Fun Pool doors.
  • Participants will be allowed to sign in no more than 15 minutes prior to the start of a class. You may come to the pool deck, sign in, and go back into the locker room and change if you choose.
  • Participants who are taking their first class of the day receive priority. Should you wish to participate in back-to-back classes, you will need to complete the first class, leave the pool, sign in and return for a second class as space allows.
  • The multipurpose lanes will be closed to non-program related activity during water exercise times.
  • No participants will be allowed to join a class 15 minutes after the class has begun. This is for your safety, the safety of your classmates, and the safety of your instructor.
  • When waiting for a class to begin, you should enter at the zero depth or wait on the pool deck/bleachers for your class to begin. Out of respect for the classes going on around you, please keep your voice low if you choose to enter the water.
  • Please be courteous and do not block the entrances and exits of the pool during transition times. For everyone’s safety, the stairwell, and the opening between the multipurpose space and the zero depth should be clear for entering and exiting.
