Best Practice Guidelines

AGRiP Recognition is a current, industry-specific method for member pools to conduct a comprehensive review and evaluation of internal operational procedures. Approximately one-third of AGRiP member pools have achieved AGRiP Recognition.

The Advisory Standards for Recognition provide a framework to examine current practices and procedures, train new pool leaders, and provide governing bodies with assurance that operational best practices are being met. 

Advisory Standards are evaluated and updated on an ongoing basis so pools stay current in best practices. All Recognition applications are peer reviewed before AGRiP Recognition is awarded. The application fee for AGRiP Recognition is $750 and, once awarded, Recognition is good for three years. Materials to assist pools in the Recognition process include:
