LIFEGUARDS

The lifeguards on duty are responsible for the enforcement of the Pool Rules and Policies and are the first line of authority. Lifeguards will use various methods of rule enforcement including verbal warnings, time out of the pool, suspension of pool privileges, and referral to the Pool Committee for additional action.

If you witness anyone or any of the lifeguards not following procedure at any time, please report it immediately to the HOA with the date, time and location. By doing so, we can ensure the staff that is guarding our pools is the best.
