HOA Rules for Swim Team

  • The Rudgear Estates Pool is open during posted hours for general use by members of the Rudgear Estates Homeowners’ Association, and their guests.  During the summer, the Pool is open from 12 p.m. until closing.  It is the policy of the Homeowners’ Association that anyone who is not a member of either the Pool Association or Homeowners’ Association may not use the Pool after swim team practice or after swim meets.
  • For insurance reasons, children or infants who are not team members are not permitted in the Pool area during swim practice.  This rule is necessary since there are no Association lifeguards on duty during swim practices, and the coaches cannot be responsible.
  • The baby pool and diving pool areas are off limits during swim practice and swim meets because there is no lifeguard on duty.
  • The announcer shall announce at the beginning of each meet that no diving will be allowed except from the starting blocks at the start of a race.  All other pool entries shall be feet first into the pool.
  • Similarly, a “No Diving Except Starting Dives,” policy shall be enforced by the coaches at all practices and meets.
  • All children 10 years of age and younger must be supervised by a parent or guardian during swim meets and practices when not participating in a race or practice session.
