JUNE POOL UPDATES
Effective June 7, several changes will be made to our pool programming schedule. (Omnify will reflect changes beginning 5/31.) Please read thoroughly as there are many changes from how we have been operating the last few months. Pool use will remain a member only benefit at this time.

Lap Swimming:
  • Lap swimmers will no longer be restricted to 3 swims per week. We will now allow lap swimmers 1 swim per day.
     
  • Swims will still need to be scheduled through Omnify.

  • Walk-ins will be accepted if a lane hasn’t been scheduled or if a scheduled swimmer doesn’t show for their appointment within 15 minutes of the start time. Walk-in swimmers  must check-in with the Welcome Center for availability and to request use of an open lane.

  • 5 lanes will be designated for individuals who are fully vaccinated. 2 people per lane will be scheduled. If 2 vaccinated individuals (spouses, partners, swim partners, parent/child) are scheduled during the same time, they may invite up to 2 additional individuals to share the lane with them as long as the individuals meet the current age, swim ability, and vaccination requirements. These additional individuals must be members and will not need to have a reservation.

  • 1 lane will be designated for individuals that have not been fully vaccinated. 1 person per lane will be scheduled. Vaccinated individuals may not utilize this lane to have the ability to swim in their own lane. This lane will not be available during times when aqua fitness classes or swim lessons are also scheduled.

  • 12 year olds are now permitted to lap swim under the conditions mentioned above. A parent must be present in the building while their child swims. If the parent is not a member they are restricted to the pool deck or Welcome Center seating area. 

  • Short swims will be phased out and all swims will be extended to 55 mins. 

Small Pool For Household Group Use:
  • The small pool will be open select hours for member household group free swim. To begin, the pool will be open from 3:00-6:00pm, Monday-Friday. 

  • The pool will be roped off into two sections to accommodate two households at a time.

  • Household groups are limited to 6 individuals. 

  • Reservations will be required and can be made by calling the Welcome Center beginning Wednesday, June 2nd.

  • Reservations are for 45 minute time slots. 

  • Families will be restricted to two reservations per week (subject to change based on demand).

  • Any unvaccinated individuals must wear masks while on the pool deck and maintain 6 feet of distance from other participants. 

  • Families are asked to use the gender-neutral locker room or family locker room. Individuals ages 11 and older may use the adult locker rooms.
