Children at the Pool

Rules for Children at the Pool

  1. There will be a 15 Minute “Adult Swim” at the end of each hour to allow children to rest and for adults to have a period in the pool without the interference of children. Only members and guests 16 years of age and older may be in the water during this break. Children younger than 16 must remain at least 6 feet from the edge of the pool until the lifeguard signals the end of adult swim. Parents may bring single infants or toddlers into the water during adult swim. Please be considerate of members trying to swim laps in the pool.

  2. No child will be permitted in the deep-water section of the pool unless he/she can demonstrate the ability to swim one width of the pool in good form and the ability to tread water for at least 30 seconds. Children may not pull themselves along the roping in deep water. Children under the age of 10 must be in the company of an adult when using the pool facility. Children must be 10 years of age to use the pool facility without adult supervision.

  3. Unattended children 10 and over must have a signed waiver with contact information on file. If you have not already completed the appropriate forms, please print and complete the waiver and contact info sheets, and return them to the Head Lifeguard, the Pool Manager, or any Board member.

  4. Only children 5 years of age or younger are allowed in the baby pool. It is not to be used by older children during adult swim periods. Lifeguards are not responsible for watching children in the baby pool.

  5. Children in the baby pool must be attended to by an adult at all times.

  6. All children not toilet trained must wear a swim diaper. If you need additional swim diapers, please ask the Lifeguard (we have additional swim diapers on hand). Parents of infants, toddlers, and young children are expected to clean up and thoroughly sanitize any area where their child has an “accident.” The guards will provide cleaning materials and directions. This includes the bathrooms. If an accident occurs in the water, bring it to the lifeguard’s attention immediately so that they can be of assistance.

  7. Discipline will be enforced by the lifeguards. Children who do not listen to the lifeguards will be found in violation of the rules and will be disciplined as follows. 1st violation –warnings and an explanation of safety rules to the child and parents will be notified; 2nd violation- violator’s pool privileges will be suspended for the rest of the day and their parents will be notified in writing; 3rd violation- violator’s pool privileges will be suspended for the rest of the day and parents will be notified to meet with the board to appeal possible loss of pool privileges.

  8. Children are not permitted in the kitchen without supervision.
