Proper Swimming Attire Rules

  1. Clothing such as cut-off shorts or other frayed materials that can damage pool filtration systems are not allowed.
  2. For health and sanitation requirements, children under age three, anyone who is not fully toilet trained or incontinent must wear a swim diaper.
  3. To maintain a family-friendly environment, adult swim suits of a sexually suggestive nature, including thongs, string bikinis or see-through clothing, are not allowed.
  4. For their protection, preschool-aged children and older should be dressed in modest, swim-appropriate clothing. This includes no underwear visible for boys, and some type of top that is not see through for girls.
