Rules and Regulations

Admittance to the Pool

Upon entrance, members and guests must sign-in at the front desk where, as necessary, membership will be verified by a staff member and checked against photos on file. Members under the age of 10 must be accompanied and cared for by an adult or responsible person 14 years of age or older. If the responsible person is not a member, a guest fee is applicable. Member’s children and their guests between the ages of 10 and 17 may enter the pool without the adult member if a completed Parental Consent Form for member and guest is on file.  Children entering without a parent or guardian may be asked to pass a water safety test. A parent or guardian must accompany any child requiring the use of any kind of flotation device, regardless of age.

Water Safety Test

At its discretion, pool staff may require any member or guest between the ages of 10 and 17, and unaccompanied by an adult, to pass a basic water safety test. To pass, the individual must swim one length of the pool; tread water for one minute; and float for one minute.

Guest Policy

Members must register all guests at the front desk and provide a guest pass or pay $5 daily guest fee for each guest. The member must be present as long as registered guests remain on pool property.  Guest fees and Guest Pass Cards (10 passes for $30) can be purchased at the front desk.  Each pass may be used for any one guest for one day.  Children under 2-years-old admitted free.  The guest fee applies to all guests on the pool deck, whether or not they swim or enter the pool.
