Reminder: Unattended youth

Posted by rickkwilhelm on June 5, 2020 at 6:45 AM Comments comments (0)

A reminder that no swimmer under the age of 8 may swim at any time without a parent present at the pool.

Also, no swimmer under 15 years of age may be at Vienna Aquatic Club after 6 p.m. unless there is a parent present

For clarity, a parent being "in the parking lot" does not count as "at the pool".

These are standing VAC rules which remain in effect, even during the current lap-swimming model.
