Swimmers must pass swim test in order to be allowed in the pool without an adult. Prior to passing the swim test, swimmers must have parent/guardian in the water with them within arm's reach at all times - NO EXCEPTIONS.
The swim test consists of one length (25 yards) of crawl stroke (freestyle) with rhythmic breathing, treading water for at least 30 seconds, then swimming one length (25 yards) back stroke (elementary, regular, or gliding and kicking). Swimmers must complete the test without stopping to “rest” on the sides of the pool.
We have a notebook of swimmers that have passed the swim test over the last few summers. If the need arises as determined by the Lifeguards, we may ask your child to retake the swim test.
Adults, 16 and over, are invited to lap swim and enjoy the pool free of children during 'Adult' times. Children, including infants, are not allowed on the pool deck or in the locker rooms during adult swim times.
Aqua Club Guest Policy
In an effort to address increasingly crowded conditions at the pool and abuse of the club's prior guest policy, the Aqua Club Board hereby enacts the following guest policy, to become effective May 22, 2010:
1. Each Family shall have no more than 25 total guests per season, absent special circumstances with prior management approval.
2. Absent special circumstances, each guest is limited to four visits to the club per season. Special circumstances include, but are not necessarily limited to, nannies or babysitters and out of town guests. Special circumstances must be approved in advance by the Club Manager.
3. The guest fee shall be $5.00 per guest per day.
4. Guests who attend as part of a Clubhouse rental do not count toward a members' annual total or individual guest limit. However, such guests who use the pool are required to pay the guest fee. Non-member rentals will not have access to the pools or tennis courts.
5. The Club will keep a punch card for each Family at the pool front desk. The punch card will track the Family's total guests, as well as the name of each guest.
6. Because additional staffing may be necessary, members bringing five or more guests at one time (including guests at a Clubhouse rental) must notify the Club Manager 24 hours in advance. Management reserves the right to refuse entry to guests under such circumstances in the event 24-hour notice is not given.
7. Members under the age of 14 cannot host a guest without parental supervision.
8. Members are required to be responsible for their guests at all times. Members will not be permitted to arrange for a guest's entrance into the pool and then leave.
9. Club management reserves the right to turn away or excuse guests in the event pool capacity is reached.
