In order for children to swim in the lap pool without an adult
they are required to pass a swim safety test. The test consists of 2 parts:
Tread water for one minute
Swim the length of the pool.
Once the child passes the swim test their name will be added to
a list at the lifeguard stand and they will be given a wrist band to swim in
the pool. They only need to pass the test once per summer; the next time you go
to the pool just check in at the lifeguard stand to get your wristband.
the safety of our swimmers, we have regular safety breaks scheduled at the
pool. The breaks occur 15 minutes before the hour beginning at 11:45. Adults
are allowed to lap swim during these safety breaks. Children must remain out of
the pool until the safety break is over. During the safety break, the baby pool
will be closed as well.
lifeguards are responsible for the aquatic safety of our residents and to
prevent drowning. Please help them and follow the rules so we can have an
enjoyable and safe summer at the pool.

lifeguards are here for you! They want to ensure we have a safe and fun swimming
feels like temperature outside must be 60 degrees or higher for our pool to
open. If lightning or inclement weather is spotted the pool will close for
safety and reopen when the weather has passed. The pool and pool deck will be
cleared when either of the following is occurring:
to ground lightning is observed and less than 30 seconds pass from seeing
the lightning and hearing the thunder from the flash.
cloud lightning is occurring directly overhead.
do not have to be severe to contain large numbers of cloud to ground flashes to
be considered dangerous. The pool can be considered safe to re-occupy 30
minutes after the last lightning is seen.
Notes from our Lifeguards about the weather policy:
use the Weather Bug app for all weather information. We specifically use
Legacy stadium at Cherokee Trail as our closest station.
will stay open if it is just raining if we can see the bottom of the pool.
close when lightning is 10 miles away from us.
the weather looks bad to the point we will not reopen within an hour, we
put all staff on call. This means when it is safe to open, we can call the
staff back to reopen and let everyone in. This also means at least two
guards must be on site to open due to CPR protocol.
