Rules & Policies

We keep your kids safe! Help us do that by following these rules

Pool Rules

Our goal is to provide life skills that keep our students healthy, safe, and smart all while enjoying the indispensable skill of swimming. We work hard to build confidence, success, a love of water, and a respect for safety.

Safety in and around the water is a primary concern of ours. You are upholding a key component of water safety by providing your child with swim lessons. You can also help keep your child and the other students at Charlotte Aquatics safe by abiding by the posted rules and reporting any safety concerns to our staff.

  • Please do not leave valuables in your vehicle
  • Glass containers and pets are not permitted in the building.
  • Food and drinks are permitted in the spectator area but not on the pool deck or locker rooms.
  • Children under 6 years old may use the changing room of either parent.
  • Attendance at every class is a key to learning. Please be on time for class and allow for changing and showering time.

Water related illnesses

Please keep germs from creating a water-related illness by obeying the following rules:

  • All children under the age of 3, or those who are not fully potty-trained regardless of age must wear a fitted, reusable swim diaper. Cloth diapers, regular disposable diapers, or commercial swim diapers (Huggies Little Swimmers, or Pampers Splashers) are not acceptable.
  • Please do not allow your child to swim if they have diarrhea.
  • Practice good hygiene. Shower before swimming and wash hands after using the bathroom.
  • Street shoes are not allowed on the pool deck. Please wear proper footwear within the building and parking lot. Bare feet invite injury.


This is your responsibility. Lockers are provided for your convenience and we encourage you to bring a lock. All locks will be removed each evening so please remember to take yours with you.

Our Heart

At the end of the day, what matters most is that your child feels confident, happy, and safe in the water - and that's exactly what we strive to provide through our heartfelt approach to teaching your child to swim. We put our heart into every swim lesson and strive to teach children the joy of swimming and how to be safe in and around water. Interested in starting swim lessons for your child? We can't wait to hear from you!
