Entrance to Pool

The pool entrance is located behind the Congregation, past the parking lot. You must check in with the pool attendant upon arrival for Swimming Lessons, Open Swim, and Camps.

Swimming Lesson Check In

Students will receive a colored stamp on their hand and then must wait with caregivers / parents until they are called to the pool.

Spectators and Parents

Please refrain from engaging with your child during their lesson, this confuses them on who is in charge and does not allow for trust to build between instructor and student. If you feel you need to intervene, please check with the Deck Supervisor first.


If you choose to use sunscreen it must be applied at least 20 minutes prior to entrance of the pool otherwise is simply washes off in the pool. If you are unable to put sunscreen on within the 20-minute set in period, then the swimmer will need to swim without sunscreen. UV Shirts are suggested.


All swimmers must rinse off in the showers at the pool before entering the pool.

Changing Rooms / Restrooms
