Pool Rules and Other Information

The purpose for the adult-only swim is to allow for lap swim and physical therapy.  It is not an appropriate time for children to be in the pool.  We respectfully ask parents for their cooperation.

Note: When there are no seniors or adults who wish to use the pool during the time it is reserved for them, or if they agree to others using the pool with them, the pool attendant has the discretion to open the pool to other members unless a senior or adult arrives who wishes to use the pool, and objects to others using the pool during the designated adult hours.

No one will be allowed to use the pool outside of regular pool hours without the specific approval of the Board of Directors.

Guest Fee $2.00; guests must be accompanied by a Sierra member.

Note: Sierra residents and their guests are allowed access to the pool during normal pool hours even when the clubhouse has been reserved!

 

Anyone refusing to obey the pool rules
is subject to removal from premises.
