POOL RULES

The Lifeguards have authority to deny pool privileges for incompetence as a swimmer, misconduct, abuse of the bathhouse facilities, or any other violations of the pool rules. Any disagreement regarding such actions should be brought to the Board of Directors, not to the Lifeguards.

OUR LIFEGUARDS ARE HIRED AS GUARDS, NOT AS BABYSITTERS

1. Regular pool hours are from 9 AM to 9PM. No swimming unless there is a lifeguard present.

2. Both the Lifeguards and the Pool Committee have the authority to close the pool due to inclement weather or for other unforeseen problems.

3. State law requires that all swimmers must pass through the shower when entering or reentering the pool.

4. State law prohibits smoking in the pool enclosure or bathhouse.

5. State law prohibits food or beverages in the pool enclosure.
