Aquatic Facility Use FAQS

How old do my children have to be to go in the pool on their own?

Our Centre's follow the Watch Around Water program, whereby children under 5 years, must have a Parent or Guardian in the water within arm length at all times, and children under 10 years must be actively supervised at all times. Whilst using the Wave pool, children under the age of 10 years must be within arms reach of a parent or guardian, whilst the waves are in operation.  Kingston Active recommend that children over the age of 10 years remain actively supervised by a parent or guardian, and reserve the right to remove any child from the water should their safety be of concern. 

Can I swim when after my child's swimming lesson?

Yes, on the day of the lesson they can. If you are on the Learn to Swim Direct Debit Membership, the enrolled child can swim at any time and day, at either Don Tatnell or Waves. You will just need to pay for the accompanying adult. 

Do you have family changing rooms?

Yes, family change cubicles are are located on pool deck at both Centres.  Children 6 years and under may accompany a parent/guardian into the change rooms regardless of gender. 

Do you have accessible pools?

Yes, we have a hoist to get in to the 25m pool, at both Don Tatnell and at Waves. 

How do I know if there are lanes available to do laps in?

You can either see our Lap Lane availability part of the website for the most up to date lane allocations and bookings, or call customer service on 9587 1016 for lane bookings for the day. 

What membership and visit pass options are available at your centre?

We have both Aquatic memberships which include access to the pool, spa, steam and sauna at both Waves and Don Tatnell, or for those just wanting to use the pool, we offer visit passes in packs of 10, 20, and 50, at a discounted rate to normal casual rates. Concession rates also apply.
