URBANNA SWIM CLUB GROUNDS & WATER SAFETY RULES

Urbanna lifeguards and the pool manager have the authority to deprive any member or guest from using the grounds and pool for cause. A written statement will be filed with the Board of Directors.

 

CONDITIONS OF ADMISSION

 

1.  Members must sign in at the front desk upon entering Urbanna Swim Club grounds. Record your membership number, last name, and the number of people entering with you (swimmers and non-swimmers).

2.  Guests of members (aka sponsored guests) must also sign in and pay the guest admission fee (swimmers and non-swimmers). Members are responsible for the conduct of their guests. Any damages to the grounds, equipment, or pool will be charged to the sponsoring member. The Board of Directors will determine the amount to be charged.

3.  All patrons, members, and non-members, using the grounds and pool do so at their own risk. Neither Urbanna Swim Club nor its officers, board of directors, employees, and/or affiliated coaches shall be held responsible for any accident or injury incurred at Urbanna Swim Club.

 

USE OF GROUNDS

 

NO RUNNING ON THE POOL DECK + NO GLASS CONTAINERS NO FOOD WITHIN THE YELLOW LINE AROUND THE POOL OR WITHIN THE BABY POOL FENCE NO PETS + NO SMOKING WITHIN 25 FEET OF THE POOL

 

Additionally,

1.  In the event of extreme weather or other emergencies, the pool and grounds will be evacuated. This includes rain heavy enough to obstruct the lifeguards’ view of the bottom of the pool, and electrical storms.

2.  Any activity that causes an undue disturbance or endangers others (running, pushing, roughhousing, or wrestling) is prohibited, in the pool and on the grounds.

3.  Foul or vulgar language, music, and/or actions are not permitted. Those engaging in such will be given a warning and/or be asked to leave. Urbanna is a family establishment; we reserve the right to protect our members’ rights.

4.  Only adults may use the grills. Children must keep a safe distance from the grills at all times. Charcoal will be provided by Urbanna on weekends and holidays. On weekdays members may purchase charcoal from the guard desk or bring their own.

5.  Alcoholic beverages are permitted for members and guests who are over the age of 21. However, any member or guest who has consumed too much alcohol may be asked to leave the grounds.

6.  All trash must be placed in trash containers. It is the members’ responsibility to clean up after themselves.

7.  Play equipment (pool noodles, dive rings, basketballs, etc.) is available at the guard desk and will be distributed at the guards’ discretion. It is the (adult) members’ responsibility to return the equipment at the end of use by their children.

 

AGE RESTRICTIONS

 

1.  The baby pool is intended only for children under the age of six (6). A parent, other responsible adult, or teen (16 or older) MUST be present with their child(ren) WITHIN the fence at all times.

2.  Children under the age of eight (8) may swim in the shallow end of the pool (2-5 feet) with a parent, other responsible adult, or teen (16 or older) present at the side of the pool.

3.  No child under the age of 12 may be at the pool and/or swim without a parent, other responsible adult, or teen (16 or older) present.

4.  No child under the age of eight (8) will be allowed to swim in the deep end of the pool OR to use the diving board unless he/she has PASSED a swim test administered by an Urbanna lifeguard. This test must be passed every year at the discretion of the lifeguards and/or the pool manager.

5.  Teens age 15 and older are eligible to become a lifeguard at Urbanna. American Red Cross certification is required. Contact Donna Garzione for more information: [email protected] or (571) 224-7658.

6.  Teens over the age of 16 may swim during breaks.

Share these rules with your dependent(s) and/or guest(s). They are also posted on club property and will be enforced by all Urbanna Swim Club officers, board of directors, employees, and affiliated coaches.

 

SWIM TEST

 

The lifeguard administered swim test requires that the child demonstrate the ability to swim the length of the pool independently, with the rope in place as they enter the deep end. The child must then successfully tread water for one minute in the deep end. Tests are only given during breaks. Make arrangements for testing at the guard desk.

 

WATER SAFETY RULES

 

7.  All patrons MUST shower before entering the pool. This is a significant as excess sunblock and lotions can come off while swimming and cloud the water, preventing lifeguards from seeing the bottom of the pool.

8.  Only appropriate bathing attire (suits and trunks designed for swimming) is allowed to be worn in the pool.  Shorts, jeans, and other cut-offs are prohibited for all patrons; for female patrons, tank tops, t-shirts, and other women’s undergarments not designed as swimwear are prohibited.

9.  Regular diapers are prohibited in the pool. Children who are not yet toilet trained must wear swim diapers.  IMPORTANT: If you observe that a child has soiled their swim diaper while in either the main pool or baby pool, evacuate the area immediately and notify a lifeguard or the pool manager. Excrement in the pool is a serious health hazard.

10.  Floats and rafts are NOT allowed in the pool as they obstruct the lifeguard’s view of the bottom of the pool.

11.  Age-appropriate flotation devices for infants are allowed only if a parent or other responsible adult is with the child while in the water.

12.  Similarly, small children using water wings or age-appropriate floatation vests may swim in the 3-5 feet sections of the pool only if with a parent or other responsible adult. Otherwise, they must stay in the 2-feet area.

13.  Diving is not allowed in the shallow end of the pool (3-5 feet). Follow the signs posted around the pool.

14.  Only one person is permitted on the diving board at a time. Divers may bounce only once before entering the pool. Upon surfacing, divers must immediately swim to the closest ladder and exit the water. Only when the diver reaches the ladder may the next diver make their entry.

15.  Mandatory 15-minute breaks for children under the age of 15 will be enforced every hour on weekdays. A 20-minute break at the end of every hour will be enforced on weekends and holidays.

 

Share these rules with your dependent(s) and/or guest(s). They are also posted on club property and will be enforced by all Urbanna Swim Club officers, board of directors, employees, and affiliated coaches.
