Rules

S.T.A.Y. @ SPLASH (Drop Off Policy) *New in 2024
SAS Program Poster

This new drop off policy is to provide teenagers (13-16) the opportunity to swim at Splash Waterpark unsupervised by an adult. WHAT WILL THEY HAVE TO ATTEND? This safety program will focus on developing an understanding of pool rules and why they are implemented, proper facility safety, appropriate behavior and use of the facility, respecting others, and foster a positive relationship with Splash staff. This program is required for anyone ages 13 – 16 who would like to swim at Splash Waterpark, unsupervised. Once a participant has completed the class and their parent/legal guardian has signed the Aquatic Safety Contract (agreeing they will follow all pool rules, be respectful to others and listen to the lifeguards’ instructions), their account will be updated to reflect completion of the S.T.A.Y.@ Splash Program. They will then be allowed to stay unsupervised at Splash Waterpark during open swim hours for the summer.

 DIVING WELL RULES
1) Experienced Swimmers Only- Individuals who cannot swim and/or individuals who are wearing a lifejacket are NOT permitted in the diving well.
2) Once you go up, you gotta jump- Our high dive is just that, HIGH, please make sure that you and/or your child is ready for the commitment of jumping. Once a swimmer reaches the top of the high dive, they must jump. It is much more dangerous for the swimmer to climb back down the wet stairs than to jump into the well. If swimmer needs assistance, please signal the lifeguard on duty for assistance.
3) 1 at a time- on each climbing wall. (Instructions for climbing walls are located on poolside.)
4) Front flips only off the diving boards.
