Pool Rules

  1. Lifeguards are on duty at the pool only on weekends in May and September; and daily from Memorial Day until school starts. Members swim at their own risk at all times.
  2. Young children in the wading pool or in the general area surrounding the pool must be under the supervision of an adult or baby-sitter. The lifeguards cannot be responsible.
  3. The lifeguard stand is for lifeguards only.
  4. Children must be accompanied by an adult unless they have passed a swimming proficiency test given by the head lifeguard. His/her decision is final. Young guests of children must have the authorization of the member parent.
  5. There can be no running or horseplay in the pool area. Inner tubes, mattresses, large floating toys, or balls are not allowed in the pool.
  6. Bottles and glassware are not allowed in the pool area. Eating is in designated areas only.
  7. Lap swimming: The four lanes nearest the Racquetball building are designated for lap swimming only. Exceptions are made for camp use, water aerobics, and swimming lessons. When the lanes are full, please allow two persons per lane. There is no “circle swimming” without the consent of all swimmers in that lane. If all lanes have two swimmers, wait your turn at the south side of the pool (by the snack bar).
  8. The four lane pool next to the volleyball courts is for adult lap swimming (or water walking) only (must be over 18).
