Anyone wishing to attend the swimming pools at Havant and Waterlooville Leisure Centres should familiarise themselves with the following new protocols before they attend:

  • Lane swimming sessions will need to be pre-booked via the Horizon app or website.
  • Members can email info@horizonlc.com for their membership ID number and pin to book sessions.

Telephone numbers for , Havant or Waterlooville Leisure Centres can be found below in the website footer, or on our contact page.
  • All swimmers should sanitise and/or wash their hands when entering the leisure centre
  • At the end of a swim all swimmers will need to make their way to the changing rooms where they can dry off and exit as promptly as possible so we can conduct a clean of the pool side.
  • With regards to lane swimming, children are welcome but we do ask the child is capable and strong enough to lane swim in a 25M pool for a large proportion of the 45 minute session and that they are supervised by a swimming adult.
  • Any child under the age of 16 will be subject to a swim test if the lifeguard feels they are not a competent.

Horizon Leisure Centre’s Swimming Pools Admission Policy aims to safeguard swimmers that are most at risk when bathing. The policy does not intend to prevent families and children having fun in the water and enjoying the physical and social benefits of swimming, nor create unnecessary barriers for parents and carer’s when accessing our facilities.

The policy takes into account recommendations from the Institute of Sport & Recreation Management (ISRM). It is important to note that the rules appertaining to child parent ratios will differ depending upon the number of bathers in the swimming pools. Horizon reserve the right to change the ratio at any time to ensure maximum safety.

General Policy

  • All Children under the age of 8 must be accompanied by a responsible person of 16 years or above.
  • The responsible person must go into the water with the child/children they are accompanying.
  • Whilst in the pool the responsible person should maintain a constant watch over the child/children they are accompanying and be in close contact with children who are weak or non-swimmers.

In accordance with the Chartered Institute of the Management of Sports and Physical Activity (CIMSPA) guidelines and our own Risk assessments we enforce the following policy.

Children under the age of 8 years must be accompanied into the pool at all times by a responsible adult (Over 16 years) and on a ration of no more than 1 adult to 2 children. Children under the age of 4 years must be accompanied into the pool by a responsible adult on a ratio of 1 adult to 1 child. However the ratio becomes 1 adult to 2 children in the event every child under 4 is wearing suitable buoyancy aid.

Buoyancy Aids Accepted under this policy are those that fully support the child’s weight in the water and remain secure in and out of the water. E.g. Arm Bands or Float suits. Buoyancy aides that are hand held are not considered appropriate.

Horizon Leisure Centre’s reserves the right to deviate from the above policy in response to varying bather loads and the demands of the pool programme.
