Watch Around Water Policy

WynActive has in place a ‘Watch Around Water’ policy which applies at AquaPulse and Werribee Outdoor Pool. The policy relates to parental/guardian supervision of children. The basics of this policy are as follows:

  • Children under 10 years of age must be accompanied into the centre by a responsible adult over the age of 16 years and actively supervised at all times while in the centre.
  • Children under 5 yrs must be accompanied into the centre by a responsible adult over the age of 16 yrs and be supervised within arm’s reach at all times while in the centre. 
  • Children ages 0 to 4 will be issued a pink wrist band which must be worn at all times. If children are not within arm’s reach of their parent or guardian at all times, they will be removed from the water.
  • Children ages 5 to 9 will be issued a yellow wrist band which must be worn at all times. If children are unsupervised they will be removed from the water.

Please be aware of these additional important aspects of the "Watch Around Water" policy which applies at WynActive's aquatic sites:

  • Groups won’t be admitted where the number of parents/guardians supervising a group of children under 5 years exceeds 1:4.
  • Groups won’t be admitted where the number of parents/guardians supervising a group of children aged 5-9 years exceeds 1:10.
  • Children under 5 years won’t be admitted without a fee paying parent/guardian, (or a responsible parent/guardian card holder in the case of swim school members) who is prepared to enter the water when needed.
  • For children 10 years and older, parents must use knowledge of the child’s ability and development to determine supervision level.
  • Children 5-9 years entering through the Members entrance will need to visit the services desk to be issued with a wrist band.

Swim School Membership Cards

·         The Blue card is the Student Card

·         The Green card is the Responsible Parent/Guardian Card

Upon arrival for your swimming lesson or aquatic visit to AquaPulse or Werribee Outdoor Pool, students will need to scan their barcoded card first. Once this is complete and the green light flashes, the responsible parent/guardian can then scan their card and gain entry.

·         The Green Responsible Parent/Guardian Card will not provide access to the facilities unless the Blue Student Card has been scanned prior.

·         Only one responsible person is permitted entry with one student.

·         Additional individuals are required to pay entry.

·         Entry is via the AquaPulse and Werribee Outdoor Pool main entrances.
