One Casey City of Casey

Here at Casey ARC we are a Watch Around Water Centre. Watch around Water is an education and public awareness raising program to address the growing concern regarding supervision of young children at public swimming pools.

Children need supervision! Drowning is the leading cause of unintentional death in children under five years of age and almost half of all injuries recorded at public swimming pools involves children. Watch Around Water assists aquatic staff to promote safe supervision practices and provide a safe venue for the community to participate in sport and recreation.

The program promotes consistent supervision policies including:

If the child is under 5 years of age:

1 adult: 2 children

  • Must be accompanied in the centre by a responsible parent / guardian over the age of 16 years old
  • The parent or carer needs to be within arms reach of the child at all times.
  • The child will be given a pink wrist band when casual swimming

If the child is under 10 years of age:

1 adult: 4 children

  • Must be accompanied in the centre by a responsible parent / guardian over the age of 16 years old
  • The parent or carer needs to be actively supervising their child at all times.
  • Parents / guardians must position themselves to have a clear view of the child with no physical or structural barriers between them and the child / children.
  • The child will be given a yellow wrist band when casual swimming.

If the child is over 10 years of age:

  • The parent or carer needs to be aware of the child's swimming ability and supervise them accordingly.

All unsupervised children will be removed from the water.

We will not permit entry to the centre for families and / or groups where the number of parent/guardians supervising children under 10 years exceeds the ratio of 1:4 (ratio of 1:2 for children under 5).

At Casey ARC we have pool zones. Use the map below to choose the safest swimming area for you and your child/ren. It is recommended that you swim in the coloured area that best suits you and your child's swimming ability.
