Why do The Woodlands pools* have safety breaks every hour?
Safety breaks allow time (10 minutes at the end of each hour) for children under the age of 16 to take a break from swimming. This helps prevent fatigue in young swimmers, provides a break for water and food and is a good reminder to use the restroom. It also allows the lifeguard staff to verify that everyone is able to exit the pool safely.

* Due to the large number of people in the pool at the Rob Fleming Aquatic Center it is not feasible to hold safety breaks in the allotted time, so Safety Breaks are not regularly conducted. Under the Lifeguard Program Coordinator’s direction, staff may occasionally call a break to conduct a safety check (similar to a fire drill).
