Pool Rules

A few pool guidelines:

  • Any games (basketball, nerf ball, tag, etc.) in or around the pool, may be suspended by the lifeguard on duty in the interest of safety.
  • Children who are not toilet trained are not allowed in the main pool under any circumstances.
  • The use of artificial flotation devices in either pool is prohibited.
  • All children must pass a "Deep-water Test" prior to entering the deep-end of the pool or the diving area.
  • The priority of the lifeguards is the safety of the swimmers in the pool. All questions should be directed to an "off duty" lifeguard or the Club Manager.
  • No lawn chairs are allowed on the pool deck. Only ground level beach chairs are allowed around the kiddie pool


Thunderstorm Policy:

The policy for inclement weather at the Tarry Crest Pool is as follows:

At the sound of thunder the lifeguard or the pool manager will announce the pool is closed. From the last sound of thunder, the pool will remain closed for at least 30 minutes. The safety of our members is our paramount concern, so the pool may be closed before the first sound of thunder if the lifeguard or pool manager feels there is a risk of injury to any person using the facility.
