Pool Rules & Regulations


Swim bands are required in the deep end of the pool for anyone under the age of twelve. A swim test is required to obtain a band. The test is to swim the length of the pool and tread water for 2 minutes once you reach the deep end. Swim bands will be given out in the front office. The members will be given 1 – if lost the replacement costs is $1.00. Swim tests will be given during adult swims – or announced times (see lifeguards). Guests under the age of 12 must take a swim tests and rent a band for the day.

All alcoholic beverage must be covered (i.e. huggy or poured into a plastic container.)

There is to be no smoking on the pool deck – wood or cement areas. This is supposed to be strictly enforced. No drinking of any kind of beverages on the cement aprons of the pools. Food is not to be eaten by the pool cement edges. No diapers or unpotty trained children are allowed in the main pool. Baby pool – no diapers – they must be special “swimmer” diapers with plastic pant cover ups. The disposable diapers absorb so much water they explode – which can result in closure of the pool. A reminder to members and guests to re- read the pool rules at the beginning of the season – they are also posted at the pool if a friendly reminder is needed! There is to be NO glass any time in any area of our club. Coolers will be checked. Rules are for everyone’s safety and protection!

The pool may be closed at specific times because of special activities. Advanced notice of these activities will be posted by the front office window.
