Healthy Swimming SIX

Steps for

Protection Against Recreational Water Illnesses (RWIs)

CS209878-A

AQUATICS // ERIECO.GOV/PARKSANDREC

THREE steps for

THREE steps for

Parents of Young Kids All Swimmers

RWIs are illnesses caused by germs that can contaminate water in pools. Practice these six steps to protect yourself and others from getting sick. Without your help, even the best-maintained pools can spread germs.

20

PLEASE don’t swim when you have diarrhea. You can spread germs in the water and make other people sick.

PLEASE don’t swallow pool water. Avoid getting water in your mouth. PLEASE practice good hygiene. Shower with soap before swimming and wash your hands after using the toilet or changing diapers. Germs on your body end up in the water.

PLEASE take your kids on bathroom breaks or check diapers often. Waiting to hear “I have to go” may mean that it’s too late. PLEASE change diapers in a bathroom or a diaper-changing area and not at poolside. Germs can be spread in and around the pool. PLEASE wash your child thoroughly (especially the rear end) with soap and water before they go swimming. Invisible amounts of fecal matter can end up in the pool.

Youth Sports RECREATIONAL SPORTS PHILOSOPHY

RECREATIONAL SPORTS AGE CLASSIFICATIONS

Erie Parks & Recreation strives to provide a positive, safe, and fun environment to allow children of all skill levels the opportunity to play. We hope to create an environment that balances teamwork, commitment, hard work, sportsmanship and competition. We provide 2-3 contacts per week with enthusiastic parent volunteer coaches, and hope that at the conclusion of the season your child learned about the game, improved skills, and wants to play again.

For a majority of our leagues, we classify our league offerings by age. Unless otherwise noted in each program/league’s description, the age calculation date for all youth sports programs/leagues will be calculated by the first league contact day. • The “U” before the age number stands for “under” (e.g., U9 stands for ages under 9). • The “U” after the age number stands for “and under” (e.g., 9U stands for ages 9 and under).

Our Policy COMPETITIVE SPORTS SPORTS // ERIECO.GOV/PARKSANDREC

It is against Erie Parks & Recreation Youth Sports Leagues policy for players to concurrently participate in/on any same sport competitive league/team during any part of our respective recreational sports season. By registering and participating in any of our youth sports leagues, you acknowledge that you and the participant are abiding by this policy. With that said, we understand that Erie Parks & Recreation sports leagues do not fit everyone’s needs. We have compiled the following list of local organizations if you are looking for a more competitive offering for your child. This list is not all-inclusive and is intended to provide a few options to begin your research.
