A babysitter hired by a member­parent shall be at least 14 years in order to bring a child less than 10 years of age to the pool. The babysitter is considered part of the member’s family and the parent(s) will assume full responsibility.

 THE LIFEGUARD IS NOT A BABYSITTER!

 

 

Behavior
The lifeguard will have full authority to dismiss from the pool any person who violates any of the rules stated herein. The lifeguard may dismiss anyone whose actions and/or behavior are offensive to others. The length of such dismissals will be at the discretion of the lifeguard. The lifeguard will inform the Kings Cove HOA of any chronic behavior problems.

Health and Safety
Parents of infants, toddlers and small children will devote their full attention to them at all times. Please understand that the lifeguard is responsible for ALL swimmers in the pool, not just young children. Children who cannot swim should have suitable flotation devices and constant parental supervision.

Children, younger than four (4) years of age and any child not potty trained must wear snug fitting plastic pants or a water resistant swim diaper in the swimming pool and surrounding areas. This is a Cobb County Health Code Requirement. 

  • When the pool is contaminated with fecal matter the Health Code requires the pool be closed for twenty four (24)
  • Non­Compliance to this health and safety requirement will result in the offender being asked to leave the pool If the pool closes as a result of this violation, the Swim & Tennis member family will be subject to fines up to the amount required to restore the pool to a usable condition.

Cobb County Health requires a cleansing shower before entering the pool. A shower is provided outside the pump house for your convenience. Proper swimming attire must be worn at all times, no cut­off shorts.
