Parental Supervision of Children: Columbia Association lifeguards are on duty to enforce rules and regulations and respond to emergencies. A parent/caregiver is ultimately responsible for the safety of his or her child. There is no substitution for close, active parental supervision.

Unsupervised Children’s Policy: All children ages 9 or younger must be accompanied by a supervisor. Children ages 10 to 13 who are CA members or Columbia Cardholders can be admitted to the facility without a supervisor if the child passes Safety First. Anyone who has not passed Safety First must be accompanied by a supervisor.

Supervisors who are CA members or Columbia Cardholders must be at least 14 years old. Supervisors who are non-members-whether they are using a guest pass or paying the daily admission fee-must be at least 21 years old. Supervisors must follow this policy: You are visiting only to watch the children. You may watch no more than 10 children, including no more than four children ages 9 or younger. Non-swimming children must be accompanied in the main pool on a one-to-one ratio.

Safety First: The Safety First test, given during Adult Swim, includes swimming two lengths of the pool continuously in a strong fashion and treading water for one minute. Successful passage is noted on the member’s account.

Behavior: Pool privileges will be suspended for unsupervised children and teens (10 to 19 years old) who are asked to leave due to behavioral issues. A primary member must then accompany the child for the duration of a visit to any of the CA pools for one year from the date of the infraction.
