Woodland Swim Club Rules & Regulations

The Woodland Swim Club has clear rules regarding behavior, items brought into the pool area, opening and closing times as well as many other regulations that ensure we have a safe and fun environment. Note that the rules below apply to all active members. Guests are subject to the supplemental Guest Rules.

For everyone’s safety, PLEASE follow the rules:

  • Absolutely NO GLASS containers anywhere on the property … period. This includes beer or wine bottles, pyrex dishes, crock pots, lids, etc.
  • No running on the pool deck
  • No squirt guns or water cannons
  • No running and jumping into the water
  • No spinning when jumping
  • DO NOT ever push people into the pool
  • No ball-throwing across the pool
  • No rough horseplay
  • Children under the age of 12 must be under the supervision of a parent, guardian or baby-sitter at all times.
  • Listen to what the Life Guards say. Their word is final!

Benching Policy
Life Guards have a responsibility to maintain a safe environment for everyone.
Unsafe or inappropriate behavior will result in “benching” according to the
following policy:

  • 1st benching of the day – 10 minutes
  • 2nd benching of the day – 15 minutes
  • 3rd benching of the day – 20 minutes

More than three benchings in one day will result in suspension from the pool for the remainder of the day. Parents are asked to cooperate in reinforcing safe and courteous behavior by their children.

Green Chairs
The green chairs are reserved for adults only.

Member Rights

  • Woodland members have a right to enjoy a clean, safe swim club. Both Members and Employees have a role to play in maintaining a pleasant environment.
  • Members should supervise their own children at all times, clean up after themselves and their children, and be respectful of others’ enjoyment of the facilities.
  • Employees should be alert and professional, courteous, and give their full attention to preventing accidents and providing a clean, safe environment.
  • If there is a problem, Members should feel free to take the following steps:
  1. Speak directly to the Member or Employee involved. We all share the swim club and have both the right and the responsibility to speak up when necessary. This is the quickest and most efficient way to resolve problems.
  2. Speak to the pool manager, Ellie Harkins. She will be at the pool during posted hours as well as at other times, and will respond to any messages left for her.
    If the problem is not satisfactorily resolved, speak to a Board Member.
