We want everyone to feel welcome in our fun aquatic atmosphere and strongly recommend early water adaption for children as young as 5 months old.

Swim Fanatics works hard to keep our water temperature at a safe and conducive environment for all our participants. We have a few recommendations for our very young swimmers that will help make our environment more enjoyable.
Children under the age of 2 yrs should not be in the water for more than 45 minutes. As these children are at risk and should not be introduced into a swimming environment until they can maintain the heads in an upright position and can maintain their own body temperature when dressed in a diaper only for more than 45 minutes. If you have any concerns or questions about whether your child is ready to begin participating in water activities (outside of bathing,) please speak with your child’s pediatrician.
Keeping your child warm is important. Water activities can lead to loss of heat and all children need to be evaluated before, during and after swimming for signs of temperature changes. Please remember to dress your child appropriately for swimming and be prepared with warm towels and dry clothing for after your activities have ended. *Swim diapers are a must, remember to bring a back up set as well.
