2020 Pool Rules

2020 Peachtree Corners Swim & Racquet Club (PCSR) Pool Rules and Procedures

Effective 5/29/2020

As this is an unprecedented time for everyone, the 2020 season at the PCSR pool will not be a “normal” season.  We do not know what the rest of the summer will look like, much less next week, or what regulations will be in place at that time. Please understand that the volunteer PCSR board is doing our best to accommodate all of our members in the safest environment possible.  These rules and procedures will be evaluated weekly and state and county guidelines may change throughout the summer.  As a result, the PCSR board may need to make changes to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of our procedures based on pool attendance.  We appreciate your membership and we ask for your patience and understanding while we work through this process.
The primary pool hours are as follows:

11 AM – 9 PM: Monday through Sunday from May 30th through August 4th.

11 AM – 9 PM: Saturdays and Sundays in the month of August through Monday, Sept 7th (Labor Day Holiday)

Starting no later then June 5th, daily Lifeguards will be provided during all primary pool hours above from either 12 PM – 6 PM or 11 AM – 7 PM.  When no lifeguard is present during primary pool hours, all swimmers 18 and under must be directly supervised by an adult club member over the age of 18.

In addition to the primary pool hours, there are optional Swim At Your Own Risk (SAOR) bonus hours for those club members that opt into SAOR.  The SAOR hours will be as follows:

7 AM – 11 AM (Monday through Sunday) from June 1st through August 4th

7 AM – 9 PM (Monday through Friday) from August 5 through September 4th

7 AM – 11 AM (Saturdays & Sundays in the month of August through Monday, Sept 7th (Labor Day Holiday)

During all SAOR hours, all swimmers 18 and under must be directly supervised by an adult club member over the age of 18. No lifeguards will be provided during SAOR and the lifeguard shack will be locked.  The main parking lot gate to the club will also be locked, so club members will need to park on the street and walk down the steps to enter the club.

General Rules
Do not enter the pool facility if you have been diagnosed with COVID-19, have or had symptoms of COVID-19 or have had contact with a person that has or is suspected to have COVID-19.  If you are uncomfortable coming to the pool, please stay home.
Only members that have paid their 2020 annual dues and signed the 2020 PCSR waiver may enter the pool facility.
No guests are allowed at the pool outside your immediate family household.  The only exception to this policy is a caregiver such as a nanny or grandparent approved by the Pool Operations Chairman.  The grandparent or caregiver will also need to sign the 2020 PCSR Waiver.
No pool parties are allowed at the pool facility at this time.
Members are asked to adhere to proper social distancing guidelines and remain 6 feet apart from people outside your household, inside the pool itself and on the pool deck.
The furniture around the pool has been set up in family clusters, 6 feet apart.  Please DO NOT move the furniture while you are at the pool.  Sanitation supplies will be be available so that members can sanitize pool furniture.  We strongly encourage members to bring their own sanitiation supplies and clean the chairs, tables, loungers before and after each use as an additional measure.  While we will do our best, we cannot guarantee the avaiability of sanitation supplies when you arrive at the pool.
Lifeguards are on duty to keep the pool safe.  They are not the social distancing police, nor are they at the pool to baby sit.  It is up to each individual family to make sure a safe social distance is maintained for all of their family members.  No one except lifeguards will be permitted on the lifeguard stands.  The lifeguards are here to implement these rules, and, if the rules are abused, the lifeguards will recommend action against the individuals involved.  While on duty, the lifeguards have the sole authority to temporarily close the pool as deemed necessary to address crowd control and/or member adherence to these PCSR pool rules and regulations.
All children younger than 10 years of age must be accompanied by a member who is 14 years of age or older.  The older person must provide careful supervision of the younger child.  When no lifeguard is present, any swimmers 18 and younger must be supervised by a club member who is 18 or older.
If you fear that your teenager will not be able to maintain a safe social distance, you should not allow them to go to the pool without parental supervision. Remember the lifeguards do not know who is in each family, and therefore, cannot be responsible for maintaining social distance.
A hand sanitizing station will be set up near the main entrance gate at the pool.  However, we cannot guarantee the availaility of hand sanitizer.  If you have concerns about the availability of hand sanitizer, please bring your own.
There will be no Lost & Found in 2020.  All items left behind by members at the pool such as pool toys, towels, etc. will be disposed of daily.
All food and beverages must be consumed at least 6 feet away from the pool.  No glass bottles or containers will be permitted in the pool area.  Glass and bare feet don’t mix.
Vandalism will be prosecuted, and parents will be held responsible for any damage caused by their children.  This could result in loss of membership.
No pets are allowed.
No bikes, motorcycles, etc. will be allowed inside the fenced area—they must be parked at the bike rack outside the pool gate.
Swimwear consists of recognized bathing suits only.  No one will be allowed to swim in cut off jeans.
No disposable diapers are permitted on infants and toddlers using the pool.  Children who are not potty trained must use swim diapers.
Admission to the pool may be denied to any person who appears to be intoxicated, or anyone who has a skin infection, sore or inflamed eyes, a cold, nasal or ear discharge, any communicable disease, or open sores.
Children under the age of 6 must be accompanied to the bathroom.
All members are encouraged to dispose of their own trash when they leave the pool facility.  Only plastic & aluminum products should be put in the Recycle Bins.
Adults (18+) will have priority concerning the use of lounges and chairs.
Absolutely no running will be allowed inside the pool area.
Diving area:  One person at a time is allowed on the diving board.  Divers must dive straight off the end of the board.  No swimming is allowed in the diving area unless authorized by the lifeguards.  Games such as “sharks & minnows” will be limited to 15 minutes each hour in the diving area.
Safety Breaks:  Once every hour there will be a normal safety break for a period of 10 minutes Monday – Friday and 15 minutes Saturday – Sunday. During this break, children under the age of 16 will be required to leave the pool.  The on-duty lifeguards will blow the whistle to indicate the safety break start and end. It is important that all children leave the pool promptly when the whistle is blown at the start of the break period.  At the discretion of the lifeguards, they may ask any child who is tardy in leaving the pool to sit out a comparative amount of time as this takes away from everyone else’s swim time.  All children must remain out of the water during this time as there is no lifeguard supervision during the safety break.  The purpose of this break is to give adults a chance to swim by themselves, allow the kids to rest, and to give the lifeguards a chance to catch up on their other duties and alternate breaks.
COVID 19 Safety Break:  There will be an extended COVID-19 Safety Break each day during primary pool hours between 2:00 PM – 3:00PM. During this safety break, Lifeguards will help clean bathrooms, high touch point surfaces, & pool furniture not in use.  When no lifeguard is present, any child swimmer 18 and younger must be supervised by a club member who is 18 or older.
Only appropriate water toys are permitted inside the fenced pool area and in the pool at the discretion of the lifeguards. Tennis and other hard plastic or rubber balls are not allowed in the pool.  The use of large rafts will be permitted at the discretion of the lifeguards.  All activities deemed unsafe by the lifeguards shall be prohibited.
Discipline problems are defined in two categories:

CLASS I: Running, rough or dangerous play in and out of the water, general pool rules violations, yelling, and boisterous conduct.  These will be dealt with on the following basis:

1st offense – reprimand

2nd offense – 5-30 min. ejection depending on severity of infraction

3rd offense – ejection for one full day – after contacting Pool Operations chairman and parent

4th offense – ejection for one week

CLASS II: Discipline problems are to include but are not limited to: being present under the influence of drugs or alcohol, theft and destruction of property.  In the event immediate disciplinary action is needed, lifeguards can suspend the offenders for the duration of the day. It is not necessary to contact the Pool Operations chairman for a temporary suspension. However, notification should be made as soon as action is taken. Non-compliance of any punishment by offender will be construed to be the next offense. All problems will be reported to the Pool Operations Chairman.

When there is thunder and/or lightening in the area, the pool must be cleared.  The American Red Cross stipulates that at least 30 minutes must elapse from the time of the last thunderclap or lightening strike before anyone is allowed back in the pool.
In the event of an accident that contaminates the pool water such as fecal matter, vomit, or blood, the members shall notify the Lifeguard on duty.  If no Lifeguard is on duty, the member shall immediately contact Sweetwater Pool Management at xxx-xxx-xxxx and PCSR at 678-671-1794 to report the incident.  The member will be required to pay all charges required to remove the subject matter, clean the pool, and return the pool water to appropriate quality for normal operations.
Members who do not follow these rules and regulations may be asked to leave by the Lifeguards and/or PCSR Board.  Again, the lifeguards’ job is to ensure the safety of the swimmers, so please review these rules and regulations carefully with your children & teenagers.
