Pool Rules

It is your responsibility to know and understand the conditions of entry. Pool safety is a shared responsibility that requires a cooperative and community approach. Observe the rules below and share with others the responsibility for a great experience at the Pool.

  • Observe and obey all signs and warnings at the pool as well as all lawful directives given by Lifeguards and Pool Workers.
  • Always check the pool depth before entering the water. Enter the water in a safe manner and check for other swimmers before jumping in. You must avoid people already in the water.
  • Always be respectful of other people and the nature of their particular activity.
  • Never run on wet areas at the pool. Always move around the pool in a safe manner.
  • If you are involved in, or witness an incident at the pool, remain at the scene and identify yourself to the Lifeguard.
  • Do not swim, bathe or undertake any other aquatic activity if your ability is impaired by drugs or alcohol.
  • Always swim in water that is a safe depth for your capability. Take lessons from a qualified instructor to progress and learn swimming, first aid and resuscitation skills.
  • 0-5 years – Parents must stay within arm’s reach at all times
  • 6-10 years – the parent must be close, maintain consistent visual contact and be prepared to enter the water

Our Pool Lifeguards are at the pool all day to assist, educate and help you to understand the Pool rules. This will ensure that all pool patrons enjoy themselves at Upper Hunter Shire Council Pools. Irresponsible, reckless and anti-social behaviour may result in immediate suspension from pool use and/or cancellation of season passes.
