Aqua Aerobics

​Aqua Aerobics Classes are a great way for you to stay fit with less chance of risking injury. Using the resistance of water increases the intensity of any movement you make, helping to improve your strength, flexibility and overall health.

Aqua exercise is similar to using weights or machines in a gym. However, aqua aerobics uses the natural buoyancy of the water to help protect the body from injury while exercising. This makes aqua aerobics fantastic for targeting particular areas of the body that require attention.

Keep Watch

J M Robson Aquatic Centre subscribes to the Keep Watch at Public Pools Program which is followed at all times. The Keep Watch at Public Pools  policy and the ages within it represent minimum standards only. Royal Lifesaving Australia encourages pools to adopt a higher standard wherever possible.Lifeguards are required to enforce the Keep Watch initiative at all times. These actions are as follows:

  • Children (under 10 years) are not allowed entry unless under active supervision of a person 16 years or older.
  • Parents and guardians should actively supervise their children at all times and be dressed ready to enter a pool. For 0–5 year olds and non-swimmers, a parent or guardian needs to be in the water at all times and within arms’ reach of the child. It is best if you are engaging with your child i.e. playing with them, talking to them.
  • Constant active supervision is required for children aged 6–10 years old. Parents and guardians must be prepared to enter the water with this age group.
  • For 11–14 year olds it is recommended that parents regularly check on their child by physically going to where they are in or around the water. The recommendation for parents to physically check up on 11–14 year olds is intended to educate parents that this group is still at risk despite having a high degree of independence and parental supervision is an effective means of increasing their safety.



What is active supervision @ Public Pools?

Active supervision at public pools consists of four key elements:

BE PREPARED: Ensure you have everything you need before getting into the water, such as towels and dry clothes.

BE CLOSE: Always be within arms’ reach of your child.

ALL OF YOUR ATTENTION: Focus all of your attention on your child and get into the pool and talk and play with them.

ALL OF THE TIME: You should never leave your child alone in the water, nor should they be left in the care of an older child or with the assumption that your responsibility diminishes due to the presence of lifeguards.
