2017 Pool Rules & Regulations

INTRODUCTION:  The goal of these rules and regulations is to manage the Association’s liability risk, to protect the Lot Owners’ investment in the recreation facility, to promote property values, and the safety of the owners, dependents and guests while using the swimming pool.  It is for the mutual benefit and enjoyment of all the users of the Country Lane swimming pool that these rules and regulations are implemented and enforced for the common use and enjoyment of the pool. 

NOTICE:  The Lot Owner is responsible for the activity of their tenants, family members, quests, and invitees.  Users who violate these rules will be subject to the remedies set forth in the Association’s Enforcement Policy.  For situations at the swimming pool that present exigent circumstances, including activity that presents a threat to the health and safety of the pool users or the Association property the lifeguard will have authority to take reasonable steps to promote health and safety in the pool area. 

  1. Pool Hours:  Daily 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. 
  2. If no lifeguard is present at the Pool:  Pool users will swim, and otherwise use the facilities at their own risk.
  3. Lifeguard’s Authority:  The lifeguards have authority to take reasonable measures to protect the health and safety of individuals and property within the pool facilities. The Lifeguards do not guarantee the health and safety of the pool users or their property.
  4. Pool Registration:  RF Access (Fobs) will be issued Lot Owners that are in good standing and current on assessments or current on an approved Payment Plan.  The Fob will be required to gain admittance to the pool area.  Lifeguards are not authorized to admit anyone without a valid Fob.
  5. Unsupervised Children:  All children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
  6. Guests:  All guests must register with the lifeguard upon arrival.  The lifeguard has the right to limit the number of guests at any point in time based upon pool area occupancy limits.  Guests are permitted at the pool ONLY if accompanied by a validated Lot Owner or Adult Resident.  Persons between the ages of 14 and 18 may have no more than one (1) guest, unless a supervising adult is present.  Lot Owners are responsible for the behavior of their tenants, family members, and guests.  Groups of 10 or more guests require submission of a party request form, approval of the lifeguards, and may require payment for the services of an additional guard.
  7. Diapers:  Swim diapers must be worn in either pool by toddlers or infants not toilet trained.
  8. Health Hazards:  Persons having infectious diseases, open sores, bandages, cuts or recent vaccinations are not permitted in the pool area.
  9. Hazardous Materials:  Glassware is not permitted in the pool area at any time.
  10. Excluded Equipment:  Bicycles, tricycles, roller-skates and (or) blades, skateboards or other such play equipment are not allowed in the pool area.  Inflatable objects may be used if they do not interfere with swimmers.
  11. Pets:  Pets are not allowed in the pool area.  Pets may not be tied to fences around the pool area.
  12. Unacceptable Behavior:  Jumping over the pool enclosure fence, horseplay, running, spitting, undue splashing, and excess noise are considered safety hazards and are therefore not permitted.
  13. Personal Music:  Personal music devices are permitted as long as, in the opinion of the lifeguard, they do not constitute an annoyance to swimmers or other pool visitors.  The use of a “headset” for listening to such devices is preferred.
  14. Pool Furniture: Adults have priority for pool furniture.  Pool furniture may be used by persons less than 18 years old, if the pool is not crowded. 
  15. Trash Disposal:  Trash shall be disposed of in appropriate containers prior to leaving the pool area.
  16. Diving:  Diving is NOT permitted.
  17. Alcoholic Beverages:  Alcoholic beverages are NOT permitted in the pool Facility.
  18. Swimming Attire:  Swimmers must wear swimming attire.  Cutoffs and shorts are not permitted.
  19. Off Limits Area:  The lifeguard chair is off-limits to all personnel except the lifeguards.
  20. Baby Pool:  Children using the baby pool must be supervised at all times by an adult.
  21. Smoking Policy:  Smoking is NOT permitted on the pool premises. (Including e-cigarettes/vapes)
  22. Pool Facility:  Please keep the Pool Facility clean.  Pool privileges may be revoked if individuals damage or ‘trash’ the Pool Facility or its furnishings.
  23. Drug Policy:  The Country Lane Pool is a Drug Free Facility.  Violations of this regulation will constitute a rules violation subject to the Association’s Enforcement Policy and the Life Guard’s reasonable authority to ensure health and safety within the pool area.
