Requirements and Staffing

Aquatic Center Regulations


Children 8 and under must be accompanied by a caregiver who is at least 14 years of age. The caregiver must be within arm's reach of the child/children. Any flotation devices must be worn on the body. We do not allow little inner-tubes, little boats for tots to ride in, or any other devices. Everything artificial must be made to be worn on the body. Understand that only a properly fitted Coast Guard-approved life jacket will actually save a child's life. We reserve the right to allow patrons with disabilities to use special equipment.


Pella Aquatics reserves the right to close some of our features if staffing needs cannot be met. Please ask at the admission desk to determine the availability of features, as we do not offer refunds if the features you want to use are closed. This can be especially true at the beginning of the season when school is still in session, and at the end of the summer, when school and athletics start.
