Thank you all so much for making summer of 2020 as successful of a season as possible. We can’t wait to see our Marlin Family again in 2021
(Thursday, August 13, 2020) Greetings member: Due to the inclement weather today, we will be closing the pool from 1-6 (during normal operating hours). For those of you on swim and dive team, please watch your emails to see the status of practice tonight. It looks like things may clear up by then. So do expect to still attend this evening.
Please help out at the Check In/Check Out Table: We are asking every pool member to volunteer at least one or two hours at our check-in desk. This is a great opportunity for rising 6th graders and older to get SSL Hours. If you have not volunteered already, the person working the desk before you will show you the ropes! If you sign up your (middle school) child to work the desk, we request that a parent stay close by to help answer questions. SIGN UP HERE! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0949aba628abfe3-mctsa
Friday, Saturday, Sunday: 12pm -8pm
Wednesday & Thursday: 1pm – 6pm
Monday & Tuesday – Closed
According to the Montgomery County Guidelines, we can accommodate 165 patrons within the gates, but with our limited budget and staff we are only allowed 75 at this time so that we can keep the limit to 50 swimmers in the water.
(August 4, 2020) Important Reminder:
We would like to take a moment to reiterate the regulations for the pool this summer and inform all members that these regulations MUST BE FOLLOWED AT ALL TIMES. If these regulations are not adhered to, you may be asked to leave to ensure the enjoyment of the pool for the other members for the remainder of the summer. There will be NO EXCEPTIONS!
2020 Pool Rules & Regulations
-Baby pool and playground will remain closed
-Members must bring their own chairs
-Lap lane swimmers must provide their own equipment
-Tables under the pavilion may be used for shade or dining, but members must wipe with self provided Clorox wipes before and after use. Social distancing must be observed by everyone using this area
-Tents will be allowed for shade
-Limited bathroom use
-Bathrooms will be one directional; enter on the pool side and exit on the hallway side.
-No family sharing of pods
-Masks MUST be worn when entering and exiting the pool
-Masks MUST be worn when outside of pods with the exception of movement to and from the pool, including when conversing with guards and visiting the restrooms.
-Members are not allowed to bring any guests
-Members may NOT bring or be left with children under the age of 12 that are not part of their immediate family
-ALL members MUST check in AND out of the pool EVERY time they enter and/or exit the pool. If there is no volunteer at the check in desk, you must check in and out through the main entrance only during rest period. Please be patient and wait for a guard to get to the desk to check you in/out. DO NOT enter or exit the pool until someone has checked you in/out. The best way to avoid this situation, please volunteer a little time at the desk.
-We will no longer allow intermingling of families and children, even if you have been social distancing together as an inspector walking the grounds will not have/nor care about this information and simply write the pool up in violation.
-There will no longer be any open well time, including the playing of Beaver.
-NO horseplay in the pool, including tossing of children.
-NO sharing of ANY equipment or toys, including balls.
**Parents, please keep in mind that it is not the job of the life guards to be solely responsible for enforcing these guidelines. We ask that you discuss these rules with your children and explain the consequences of not following these regulations and help our young staff by monitoring your own children. This is especially true for those families that have children over the age of 12 who are allowed to be at the pool without parental supervision. If this population of our membership continues to disobey these guidelines, the board may be forced to raise the minimum age for the remainder of the season.
Please contact the board if you observe any actions/violations that make you or your family uncomfortable and give us the opportunity to make any necessary changes BEFORE contacting the Health Department. While we are disappointed to have to strictly enforce these rules, please be aware that these are ALL County guidelines and NOT guidelines made up by the board. We hope that everyone can pull together as the incredible community we know we are and keep the pool operating for the remainder of the summer.
