Pool Rules Enjoy your summertime swims with these simple guidelines: • No food or drink (except for water) is allowed on the Pool deck.


• Children who have passed the Super Swimmer test may swim without an adult in the water. All other children under age 10 must have a responsible adult in the Pool with them at all times. Contact the Pool staff for Super Swimmer designation details. • Lifeguards are responsible for the safety of all Pool users. Swimmers are asked not to distract them with unrelated requests. • Bathroom incidents in the water cause numerous Pool closures each summer. Please ensure that infants and toddlers wear Club-approved diapers (available for purchase at the Pool Office) in the Pool and that children who are not toilet trained take frequent bathroom breaks.
