"As an additional thought, Gerry, do you really think it makes safety sense for lifeguards to be charged with babysitting responsibilities? For example, what if the child has wandered off into an area away from the pool, then the lifeguard would be…"

Our current policy allows children 10 years of age and older, access to the pool facilities without an adult. Children 9 years of age and under must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian.

What's your current policy? I want to raise the age for children allowed, unattended, to at least 13 years of age.
