Sleepy Hollow Community Pool Policies and Guidelines


1. Use of the pool will be restricted to PAID POOL MEMBERS only.

2. All individuals must register at the snack bar upon entering the premises, give the membership name, and be prepared to present a photo ID.

      • Pool staff will verify membership
      • Member will print full name and names of children entering with the member.
      • Member will record the number of adult and child guests and pay guest fees.
      • Authorized caregiver will print member name and caregiver name, names of children entering with caregiver, and record and pay for day guests.
3. Children
      • Children of members, who are age 11+ and swimmers, may come to the pool without an adult member or caregiver, must register at the snack bar, print the membership name, and their name and age.
      • Children of members, who are age 10 and under and all non-swimmers, must be accompanied at the pool by a parent, other responsible adult pool member, or authorized caregiver, who is charged with primary responsibility for supervision, discipline, and safety of the child, in the pool or locker room, or elsewhere on the premises.
      • Non swimmers must be accompanied in the pool by a parent or caregiver who is within arms’ reach of the non-swimmer, whether or not the non-swimmer is wearing flotation. Lifeguards have the authority to evaluate the swim status of any member or guest. (Generally, the ability to swim across the width of the pool without flotation and take breaths while crossing demonstrates swim ability. However, young and inexperienced swimmers can become disoriented or alarmed, and parents are encouraged to be in the pool and attentive to them).
      • Children who are not potty-trained must wear reusable swim diapers that fit snugly at the waist and legs. We recommend that children age 36 months or younger wear reusable swim diapers.
