Members are not permitted to enter the pool area prior to the opening times listed above.  


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. If this occurs at any time after 7:30 PM, the swim club will close for the remainder of the day. The manager may also decide to close for the remainder of the day to protect the safety of the staff. If rainfall is heavy enough to limit visibility of the bottom of the pool, the pool will close until such time as adequate visibility is restored. This determination will be made at the discretion of the manager on duty.
