Ramp lane notice to swimmers

The ramp lane in the 25m pool is not for recreational swimming. This area must remain clear at all times to allow swimmers to enter or exit the pool. Lifeguards will be monitoring this area to ensure the area remains clear.

Macquarie University Sport also abides to the 'Keep Watch' policy which states:

  • Children 0 - 5 years and non-swimmers must be within arms reach of a parent/guardian at all times
  • Children 6 - 10 years must have constant supervision by a parent/guardian
  • Children 11 - 14 years must have a parent/guardian regularly checking up on them.

As a parent/guardian, please ensure you bring your swimwear to enter the water with children aged 0 - 5 years or weak swimmers. Lifeguards will ask any unsupervised children to leave the pool.

Walk/run lane

To assist all members with their exercise needs, we have allocated a walk/run lane in the 25m pool from Monday to Friday, 9am - 12pm. This will be located in lane five (5) next to the recreational swimming lane.
