Our rules have been made to protect the safety of our members and to maintain a pleasant atmosphere for all. The rules are posted at the pool, and it is the duty of the staff to enforce them. The Club Manager may at their discretion penalize, dismiss from the pool area or suspend membership of any person(s) who violate(s) the rules. The Board of Directors retains the right to end a membership for due cause at any time. Review the rules with your children so they clearly understand what is required of them, and please support our efforts to enforce all the rules. The Club Manager and Board of Directors have the authority to impose additional rules as is deemed necessary for the health and safety of all staff and members.
- MEMBERSHIP is not transferable. All members must check in and out at the Guard House upon arrival and departure.
- CHILDREN AGE 10 AND UNDER must be accompanied at all times by a parent or guardian, who shall be responsible for their safety while on Club property.
- All children age 10 and under must pass a swimming test every year to use the big pool and, until the end of July, wear a green wrist band to help lifeguards/staff identify children who have not passed the test. Children who do not pass the swim test, must be accompanied by an adult. The swim test consists of 1) swimming the length of the big pool unassisted and without stopping or touching the side, 2) treading water for 1 minute, and 3) jumping off the diving board and swimming to the ladder unassisted. This test must be done in the presence of a qualified staff member (ask the Manager on duty).

- SWIM DIAPERS: Children who are not toilet trained ARE NOT PERMITTED IN THE BIG POOL. They are required to wear swim diapers and training pants in the Baby and Middle pools. Failure to follow these rules may (under worst-case conditions) require the closure of the pool for extended periods due to the need to increase chemical levels.
