Pool Hours and Rules for Phase Two of Summer Season

Updated Pool Hours Effective Monday June 21st

Open Swimming (all ages, lifeguards on duty)
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday: 1 pm – 7 pm
Wednesday, Friday: 1 pm – 9 pm
Saturday: 12 pm – 9 pm

Lap Swimming (18 and older only, no Lifeguards, waiver required)

With the end of the Colored Tier system on June 15, and based on the most recent CDC guidance, the Board is shifting to our Phase Two program starting Monday, June 21.  Please continue to check the website throughout the summer for any further updates to our operations.

All capacity restrictions have been removed, and all Members and Associates will have access to the pool during the times listed above and below; please review these times as they have been tweaked based on requests from our many lap swimmers. Lifeguards will not be on duty during lap swims, and swimmers must be at least 18 years old to participate in lap swim. There will no longer be a SignUpGenius process – come when & as often as you will, and stay as long as you like. 

Three Day Evening Lap Swim – Monday Tuesday Thursday

** all six lane lines will be up from 7 pm to 8 pm; first-come, first-serve; swimmers are requested to share lanes if necessary

Three Day Regular Pool Hours – Monday Tuesday Thursday

Please continue to sign-in at the Office upon entry and complete a family Waiver if one is not already on file. Each hour will include 45 minutes of free swim and 15 minutes of adult swim. Lifeguards will be on duty except during lap swim times. Lifeguards will be wearing masks in the office, bathrooms and kitchen.

Upon first entry, every family will be required to sign a Shadow Brook COVID-19 Waiver of Liability. We encourage everyone to review and complete the waiver prior to coming to the pool to help speed up the entry process. If you signed a waiver during Phase 1, you are all set.  

Masks must be worn by the unvaccinated during entry and exit and when accessing the bathrooms or the kitchen. Our Lifeguards are there to protect the community and we expect our members to respect and adhere to the rules that we have outlined.  Anyone found in violation of the rules and/or procedures can either be banned from using the pool or have their Associate Membership revoked.

Parties will not be possible during Phase Two, but all Members and Associates are free to bring up to five (5) Guests at the regular $2 fee per Guests. The Board has revised the Member definition of a household / family; Grandparents, Parents, Adult Children and Grandchildren will not be charged a $2 guest fee, and are not included in your 5 guests – please revise your Waiver to reflect anyone you bring to the pool that fits in these categories. The definition of an Associate household is unchanged, and limited to everyone who is a permanent resident to the home as in detailed in the Associate Agreement. Caregivers/Nannies will also be allowed without the guest fee and must be added to the waiver.  

 The kitchen, BBQ and showers are now open. Disinfectant wipes will be available and everyone is encouraged to wipe down tables and chairs before and after use. We hope to start swim lessons on either July 12 or July 19. If interested, please call the office or ask a Lifeguard to put your name on the Lesson waiting list.

The Board is attempting to balance many factors with this approach, and sincerely regret if it may not work for every family. We recognize that you might not know who is vaccinated and who has not been vaccinated outside of your family.  Most importantly, no one should come to the pool, vaccinated or not, unless they’re comfortable being on the pool property. No one should go in, or stay in, the pool unless they’re comfortable being in the pool with others.

For the safety of everyone, including children and our Lifeguard staff, we are encouraging all patrons, if eligible, to be vaccinated. We are also encouraging anyone who has not fully completed the vaccination protocol to protect themselves and others by wearing a mask at all times when not in the pool, and maintain the standard 6 feet social distancing.  If you have had a recent COVID test due to an exposure or have traveled outside of the area within the last ten days, please do not come to the pool without first receiving a Negative COVID test.  If you or an immediate family member are experiencing COVID-like symptoms please do not come to the pool.  While we expect everyone to exercise personal responsibility, it is important for all of us to understand that we also have the responsibility of keeping others in our community safe.  We are thrilled to be able to open the pool this year with these modifications.  Thank you in advance for being considerate of the well-being of the entire Shadow Brook Community.
