Forest Oaks Pool Policies and Rules

Use of Forest Oaks Pool

  • Use of the Forest Oaks pool is limited to club members in good standing, their paid non-member guests, and authorized swim team(s) for practice and meets.

  • Organized group usage of the pool is not allowed and should follow rental procedures to secure space.

    • Example: swim club, organized practice, birthday party, etc.

  • All members must scan their Access ID card to access the pool gates, provide access and ID cards to lifeguard staff when entering, and pay for any non-member guests before entering the water. Failure to have or provide access card(s), member card(s), or guest passes will result in your inability to use the pool.

  • All seating on the pool deck and around the pool house is first come, first serve.

  • Lounge chairs may be moved by patrons as needed but may not be placed in the water, right along the edge of the water, or in any location that causes a congestion of pool patrons or staff.

  • Operations of the pool are managed on a day-to-day basis by the Aquatics Manager and District Manager. All decisions made by either are final.

Forest Oaks Lifeguards

  • Lifeguards are for the benefit and safety of members and guests.

  • Lifeguards shall enforce the policies, procedures, and rules of the Forest Oaks facilities.

  • Lifeguard instructions and directions must be followed by all members and guests.

  • Lifeguards are the final authority on policies, procedures, and rules and have the ability to remove and/or suspend daily swim privileges for any Club member, guest, family, or group. If instructed to leave the pool area, the member and/or guest(s) are expected to leave the entire Forest Oaks facility in a timely manner.

Proper Swim Attire

Forest Oaks Pool is a family-friendly facility and patrons are expected to wear appropriate swim apparel and clothing at all times. Any questionable swim attire will be addressed by Forest Oaks lifeguards and the ultimate decision will be made by the Life Guards on duty. Proper swim attire is required because:

  • Street clothes (especially cotton) can transport airborne and ultimately water borne contaminants into the pool.

  • Lycra and nylon are the best non-absorbent material for swimming and the best fabrics for proper swim attire.

    • Other absorbent materials such as cotton can break down in the water and cause fibers to clog filters.

    • Any “colored” material, unless specifically made for swimming, can bleed into the pool, effecting water chemistry and balance.

  • Cotton and similar materials can absorb the chemicals in the water, causing the water to become less effective at maintaining the proper chemical balance or may cloud the water.

Approved Swim Attire

  • Must have an interior liner.

  • Women’s one and two-piece bathing suits

  • Men’s Jammers or Speedo-style suits

  • Sunglasses

  • Hats/visors

  • Swim shoes

Not Approved Swim Attire

  • Any shorts that do not have a liner.

  • All examples provided are not an exhaustive list and Life Guards have final approval or denial of swimwear.

  • Bathing suits that do not have proper coverage (Examples: thong and cheeky bottoms)

  • Athletic shorts and pants (Examples: running shorts, basketball shorts, volleyball shorts, yoga pants or shorts, etc.)

  • Undergarments (Examples: sports bras, underwear, compression shorts, boxers, briefs, etc.)
