    Depends on where the pool is, who they go with, what child it is (one of mine is a risk taker, the other will think it through).

    So taking the above into account, assuming we are still where we are now probably not until they are 13, minimum.

    I would go with friends at about 11. But it was a pool on the army base, our families knew the people who supervised the pool.

    I was allowed to go with friends alone at 12 and I didn't even know how to swim!
    But I would let my kids go alone at 15? 16ish if they can swim

    I would say 11 or 12 I would be fine with it.
    I cant comprehend not letting a person 15 or 16 go swimming without a parent. My sister is 17 and I can just imagine the response I would have gotten if I said I was going to supervise her swimming!
