AqUATICS / GUIDELINES Aquatics Aquatics Policies  Children under the age of 8 must be accompanied by an adult. The adult must pay admission, be wearing a swimsuit, and be actively participating in the water with the child. Clothing appropriate for swimming is required. No cutoffs or thongs will be allowed in any pool. T-shirts are allowed, but they must be white. All patrons must shower before entering pool. Diapers or plastic pants with elastic around the legs are required to be worn by all individuals who do not have bowel and/or bladder control. Patrons recreationally swimming before or after a class or private lesson must pay the drop-in fee. Locker rooms will close 15 minutes after the pool closes. Parents must have children picked up when locker rooms are closed Children 6 and older are required to use the appropriate locker room, or they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian in the family locker room. Please bring a lock; the City of Fort Collins is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Lockers are for use while utilizing the facility. Anything left overnight in the locker room will be removed and locks left on will be cut. To teach private lessons, coach or provide pool therapy in any aquatic facility, an application form must be completed and approved, and the requirements for teaching/therapy/coaching must be met.  Private Swim Instruction Private swim instruction is available for all ability levels. Interested persons can leave their information with a cashier at each of the facilities. Fee is $20/half-hour for one student. Semi-private lessons are also available for an additional $2 charge. These private lessons are not discountable. Note: Patrons swimming recreationally before or after a private swim lesson must pay the drop-in fee. Learn-To-Swim Policies The Learn-to-Swim program is based on the guidelines set by the American Red Cross. We have grouped the ages for the classes based upon our knowledge of abilities of young swimmers. Although your child may have passed all of the preschool classes, they will not be allowed into the higher Level classes until age 6. One of the many differences in skills between Preschool and Level classes is distance/ endurance and stroke development. Most preschoolers are not able to swim the required distances in the Level classes. We suggest that even though your child has completed the Preschool classes, he/she should continue to take the highest level class or work on your own with them to increase endurance/distance in the various strokes. Requirements for Preschool distance are 5 yards and the distance for the Level classes are 15 yards. Edora Pool Ice Center (EPIC) Mulberry Pool (MP) 1801 Riverside 424 West Mulberry       Drop-in Swim Test Swim testing allows swim staff to evaluate your child (age 6+) on their swimming ability for proper swim level placement.
