Lake Claire Pool Rules

The rules below are extra helpful reminders to members each season.
Thank you for your cooperation.

A complete list of pool rules can be downloaded here and should be reviewed carefully. 

NOTE: New safety procedures will be added for the 2021 season with guidance from local health authorities and CDC.  Expect sanitizer stations, extra cleaning, distancing measures, and reservations may be required.

  • Lifeguards have the authority to enforce all pool rules. Contact the Head Lifeguard or Pool Manager with concerns.
  • Lifeguard hours are daily from 10AM to 9PM (with slight schedule shifts early spring and late summer). Use of the pool outside of lifeguard hours is at your own risk.
  • Socializing with or distracting the lifeguard on duty is prohibited. Please bring concerns to the lifeguard working in the guard shack.
  • One lap lane is kept open for members wishing to swim lengths undisturbed. Persons not swimming lengths should remain in other pool areas. For effective use, when more than 2 swimmers are in a lane, swimmers should swim counterclockwise near lane markers and pass in the middle.
  • Children under 14 years of age are not allowed in the pool area unless accompanied and supervised by a responsible adult who is at least 19 years old.
  • Noodles, floating lounge chairs, inner tubes, and rafts are not permitted in the pool. Coast Guard approved personal flotation devices (PFD’s) may be worn (such as water wings or swimmies). Any person wearing a PFD must be accompanied by an adult and be within arms reach.
  • Fireworks, weapons, glass containers, pets (other than recognized service animals), balls (other than small, soft, cloth varieties), water guns, bicycles and skateboards, fishing, and diving equipment (other than a mask and snorkel), are not permitted at the pool.
  • Running and noisy or hazardous activity not permitted in the pool area. No pushing, dunking, dangerous games or throwing of balls, frisbees, wet clothing, or other.
  • Diving is prohibited except in designated areas. Diving board users must be able to swim to the ladder unassisted. PFDs may NOT be worn when going off the diving board. No general swimming is permitted in the diving area.
  • NO GLASS is permitted at the pool. Bring beverages in cans or plastic bottles. Glass includes bottled beverages, ceramic coffee mugs, salad bowls, etc.. Coolers may be checked by lifeguards.
  • NO GUM inside the pool gates; chewing gum is all over the deck, in the water and has gotten into the pumps and filters.
  • Patrons are responsible for disposing of their food and beverage containers, candy wrappers and other trash–this is especially important to prevent pests. Lifeguards have general cleaning duties but are not responsible for cleaning up after guest’s meals and snacks.


  • Members must bring their key access cards to enter the pool gate. Be prepared to show ID if you do not have your access card.
  • Guest fees are $5 per guest payable by cash or check. Limit of 5 guests per visit. An ADULT member must accompany guests—your guests cannot enjoy the pool without your company.

Pool Rules | Parents & Guardians of Young Children

  • Lifeguards DO NOT monitor the baby pool. Use of the baby pool is restricted to children 5 years and under–each child must be supervised by a responsible adult and not left unattended.
  • Children who are not toilet trained are required to wear swim diapers covered by separate plastic pants, which must fit snugly around the legs and waist, under their swimsuit. Plastic pants can be purchased at the guard shack.
  • Any non-swimming children and those wearing a PFD (water wings, swimmies) must be within arm’s reach of a responsible adult at all times.
  • Diaper changing is not permitted in the pool area; please use the changing stations in the locker rooms and dispose of diapers in the marked trash bins in the restroom (not in pool area trash bins). Changing diapers on poolside chairs or tables that members eat off of is unsanitary.
  • Diving is prohibited except in designated areas. Diving board users must be able to swim to the ladder unassisted. Personal Flotation Devices may NOT be worn when going off the diving board.
