Children – Guarded Hours

Lap Swimming & Swim Lessons

A single dedicated swim lane will be made available for swim lessons and lap swimming. Non-lap swimmers should allow lap swimmers to utilize this lane unimpeded (i.e. please stay out of the lane). Exclusive use of the roped off swim lane will not be allowed during peak pool usage times. Peak usage times are as follows:

Day Peak Hours
Friday 4:00pm - 9:00pm
Saturday 1:00pm - 9:00pm
Sunday 1:30pm - 8:00pm

To better accommodate lap swimmers as well as swim lessons, the Pool Committee has decided to make the pool available to members during Unguarded times prior to normal pool hours. Anyone wishing to utilize the pool during these unguarded hours must have an Unguarded Pool Use Waiver on file with the Pool Committee.


Rules Violation Consequences

Members and/or their guests that are in violation of any of these pool rules will be dealt with in an appropriate manner by the guard staff and/or Pool Committee. Severity of the disciplinary action will depend on both the severity and frequency of the violation but may include penalties up to loss of membership privileges for the day or remainder of the season.
