  • For health and sanitation requirements, children under age three and anyone who is not fully toilet trained or who is incontinent must wear a swim diaper.
  • To maintain a family-friendly environment, adult swim suits of a sexually suggestive nature, including thongs, string bikinis, and see-through clothing, are not allowed.
  • For protection, children should dress in modest, swim-appropriate clothing—no visible underwear for boys and a non-see-through top for girls.
