New Wording

"2.3.2 At a minimum, Supervision in an Aquatic Facility is a minimum of 1 person over the age of 18 (Lifeguards may be younger however must be supervised by a person over 18) who:..."


Rationale for Change

This clause was being mistaken to read that the minimum age of a Pool Lifeguard is 17 years of age.


This clause was not intended to stipulate the minimum age of a Pool Lifeguard but rather that a Lifeguard could be under the age of 18, however, if they were they required to be supervised by someone over the age of 18.
