PARENTS face being told they will not be able to take their children swimming - unless they have extra supervision.
New rules mean all under-fours must have one-on-one adult supervision at all times.
Kirklees Council is likely to bring in the changes, which have been recommended by Government body the Institute for Sport and Recreation Management (ISRM), in September.
But many parents are worried this will mean they will not be able to take their children swimming at all.
Julie Ward, of Skelmanthorpe, and her two children, four-year-old Eliza and 17-month-old Declan (pictured), believe they will be forced to stop swimming. The family visit Scissett Pool five times a week
She said: "My kids love coming here and it is good for them. The Government keep going on about obesity levels in children but then they do something like this.
"I could understand it in some pools where there are lots of toys and slides and lots going on but in Scissett we just have a basic pool."
Kirklees Active Leisure marketing manager Damon Shaw said they were still considering exactly what would happen in September.
He said: "We are currently reviewing swimming guidelines across all of our pools taking into consideration individual pool factors such as size, depth, visibility and pool use.
"Whilst the ISRM guidelines are being used as a basis for this review, we are taking a common sense approach, taking in not only pool conditions but the ability of swimmers.
Mrs Ward added: "The new rules discriminate against single parents and those whose partners work."
