A few additional updates and reminders:

  • Lifeguard etiquette: On these hot summer days, we are reminded how lucky we are to have  a swim club available in our community and we are grateful for the guards who take a seat on the stands. Our lifeguards have an important and difficult job and their primary responsibility is your safety. Please do not distract them with conversation while they are on the guard stand. Click here for  more information on our General Pool Guidelines. 

  • Attention All New Members! We are so excited to welcome our most new members in a single season!  To commemorate your first year at the pool, we have a small gift for you at the pool office.  Please stop by on your next visit to pick up your gift and welcome to the SSC! 

  • Access to Lawn Games in the Grove: Thanks to a few donations, we have new games available to play in the Grove.  Stop by the office to borrow Bocce Ball and Sand Bags for Cornhole.  We do ask that all games be returned to the office when you are finished. If you have games gathering dust in your garage that you would like to donate, feel free to drop them off at the pool office. PLUS! More games are on the way!

  • Lost and Found: Our lost and found area is now set up next to the pool office. Be sure to stop by to claim your belongings.  Anything unclaimed will be donated or disposed of regularly. 

  • Grills: The Pool has one charcoal grill and one electric grill available for members to use.  Stop by the office to reserve a grill. 

  • Guests: Guest passes can be purchased at the office with cash or check 

    • Guests must be accompanied by a member 

    • $10 per day 

    • $5 if entering after 5PM

  • Weather Related Closures:  If lightning is observed and/or thunder is heard, the pool must close. Please exit the water and clear the pool area immediately. The swim club will close for a minimum of 30 minutes. Each subsequent observation of lightning and/or thunder will extend the closure for an additional 30 minutes. Members and guests must wait in their cars or leave the grounds of the swim club during the waiting period. There are no safe areas to wait for re-opening. Our staff will do their best to communicate reopening target times on the Capacity Tracker. 

  • WiFi: Working from home and want a change of scenery?  Why not work at the pool?! Our WiFi has been recently upgraded and coverage will now cover the entire pool grounds.  Password: [email protected]! (case sensitive)
