Child Swimming Admissions Policy

The purpose of the Child Admission Policy is to help safeguard that group of pool users who are historically most at risk of drowning in swimming pools. In the majority of drowning of children in swimming pools, the absence of parental attention has been found to be a key factor.

All children under the age of 8 must be supervised throughout their visit to the pool by an adult in the water with them. An adult is a person aged 16 years or older.

In the main pool, an adult can only supervise 1 child under the age of 4, or 2 children aged between 4 and 7 years old.

In a learner pool, 1 adult can supervise up to 2 children under the age of 8 at any one time (only applicable at sites which have learner pools).

Sports Hall Cancellation Policy

To cancel a casual booking in the sports hall please contact reception with details of the booking you wish to cancel. If cancelled with less than 24 hours notice no credit will be given. Any booking cancelled with more than 24 hours notice will be given a full credit.

Breastfeeding Policy

The East Riding Leisure Unit acknowledges and supports the rights of women to breastfeed their children in all public areas of their premises.  If the mother is happy to feed her baby in a public area, then she should be made to feel comfortable to continue. If the mother wishes to feed her baby in private, our staff should be knowledgeable and advise her of the facilities available.
