POOL REGULATIONS

  • The lifeguards are responsible for maintaining a safe environment to ensure all members and guests have an enjoyable time. Lifeguards have the authority to enforce the pool rules and supervise general conduct of pool users. Any person who refuses to follow the direction of the lifeguards will be reported to management and the Board of Directors for appropriate action.

TRAINING POOL

  • The training pool is for children too big for the baby pool and not ready for the main pool.
  • To maintain an unobstructed view for the lifeguards and staff, adults are not allowed in the training pool, if they are not helping children in the training pool. Adults are not allowed to sit on the edge of the training pool because of obstructing the lifeguard’s views of the training area.
  • Children who need flotation assistance should use the baby pool. Rafts are not allowed in the training pool.
  • Diving, twisting jumps and flips are not allowed in the training pool.
  • Steps in the training pool can be used by everyone to enter and exit the main pool.

 

DIVING TANKS/SLIDES

  • Children five (5) years of age or older may use the large slide once they have passed the swim/dive test in the deep end. See a lifeguard to have your child take the test. MEMBERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR GUESTS TO ENSURE THE GUEST’S CHILDREN TAKE THE TEST PRIOR TO USING THE LARGE SLIDE AND DIVING BOARDS.
  • Those using the large slide and diving boards must be able to swim two widths of the diving pool to use that area.
  • When using the large slide, persons must wait on the landing before going up the final set of stairs into the slide.
  • Before sliding, make sure the entry point is clear and the previous person is exiting at the ladder.
  • The diving board closest to the slide will be closed when the slide is in use. The slide will be closed when the diving board closest to it is in use.
  • All dives must be straight off the end of the board.
  • Goggles and masks are prohibited on the slides or diving boards.

CONCESSION AND DECK AREA

  • For the safety of our members, staff and guests, glass containers of any kind are strictly prohibited (i.e. jars, bowls, plates, drinking glasses, salsa jars, etc) anywhere in the facility. Any item that is regularly packaged in glass (wine bottle, beer bottle) must be transferred to a non- breakable, plastic container prior to bringing it to the facility. Since glass is heavy and causes the plastic trash liners to break – which creates a hazardous situation to members, guests and staff – glass items cannot be disposed of at the pool. In the event, someone accidentally brings a glass container; please DO NOT THROW AWAY AT THE POOL. Package the container or bottle back in your cooler/bag and dispose of when you get home.
  • All food and beverages are to be consumed on the concession deck (area behind the railing) and wood deck, including the eastern wooden deck behind the railing. Exceptions to this are DRINKS allowed around the pool area. DRINKS OF ANY KIND ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THE POOL, except for water in clear (non- breakable) plastic bottles.
  • To minimize the insects and pests, please do not leave leftovers on tables and please dispose of trash in numerous trash cans around the concession area.
  • Food is not allowed onto the lower decking around the pool. We are trying to limit the insects to the concession area.
  • We will allow food and drink in the baby pool area, however, we ask that you watch your children and clean up trash as quickly as possible to avoid insects in that area.

TENNIS

  • Players must sign in at the front desk before going onto the tennis courts. ● Regular guest fees required for guests playing tennis. ($5)
  • Shelter is for use by tennis players and spectators only.
  • Non-tennis playing children are not allowed on courts.
  • Proper attire required (shirts required). (Black soled shoes are not allowed).
  • Wheels, roller skates, in-line skates, skateboards and bikes are not allowed on the tennis courts.
  • Courts for scheduled matches, practices and clinics take precedent. Courts are available on first come, first serve basis. If there is a wait, please limit your play to accommodate the waiting players.

The club manager and staff are authorized to enforce these safety regulations and are required to report any violations to the Board of Directors for action.
