Pool Rules



  • The Lifeguard is in charge and has full authority to enforce all rules and to take whatever steps necessary to insure the safety of all persons on the premises.
  • The Lifeguard is responsible for enforcing rules for the swimming pool and the surrounding grounds. This includes the authority to expel members, guests, or children from the premises when rules are violated or when, in his/her judgment, behavior endangers others.
  • Gatekeepers are in place to check level of membership and are doing the job we have asked them to do.  If a Gatekeeper is harassed about membership level or number of passes remaining, their first step is to call both the Pool Coordinator and the Board President.  If there is a problem with something at the pool, do not take it out on the Gatekeepers, ask them to contact the Pool Coordinator or President and we will research the issue.

The pool will be closed in order to support the Mountain Shadows Swim Team (Dolphins) during all home swim meets.  The website will list all of these events in the pool section.

Swim meets start at approximately 9:00am and run until complete (generally mid-afternoon).  Pool reopens after the meet is over and cleanup is complete.

In addition to the swim meets, the swim team practices 5 days a week at the pool.  Practice starts around June 1st and runs until the final swim meet in mid-July.  Practice times are as follows:

  • Monday/Wednesday/Friday practice is prior to pool opening.
  • Tuesday/Thursday practice runs from 4:50pm until 7:30pm.  During Tuesday/Thursday practice, several swim lanes and the deep end of the pool will be available for swimming; the baby pool is available for children 4 and under.
