Upon arrival at the pool, we ask that members and their guests display their Swim/Tennis card. Please remember to close the gate behind you so that the lock is secured at all times. Please do not share cards because each card is unique to the homeowner.
NonResident Members (Seasonal Pool Card Holders) are not allowed to bring guest(s). NonResident Members must adhere to the Kings Cove HOA Pool/Tennis Rules and Regulations.
No children younger than 14 will be allowed in the pool when a lifeguard or an adult is not present. NO solo swimming is allowed. The lifeguard has the right to send a child/children home who is not adhering to pool rules at all times.
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!
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.
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.
IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY, USE THE POOL PHONE TO CALL 911. THE POOL ADDRESS IS POSTED ABOVE THE POOL PHONE.
THERE WILL BE ZERO TOLERANCE FOR HORSEPLAY ON THE DIVING BOARD. THE RULES FOR THE DIVING BOARD WILL BE ENFORCED BY BOTH THE LIFEGUARD AND THE CAMERAS SURROUNDING THE POOL DECK. IF SEEN IN VIOLATION OF ANY OF THE RULES, YOU WILL BE BANNED FROM THE DIVING BOARD FOR THE REST OF THE POOL SEASON. PLEASE MAKE YOUR CHILDREN AWARE OF THESE RULES. IT IS FOR THEIR SAFETY ONCE AGAIN
Responsibility and Liability
There will be no lifeguard on duty during Cobb County school days. All persons using the pool do so at their own risk. An adult must accompany all children age 13 and under when there is no lifeguard on duty. Adherence to this rule is necessary to keep the pool open until 9.00pm throughout the season. All Kings Cove members and outside the community members release the Kings CoveHOA from any and all liability as is relates to the supervision of children and guests while using the Kings Cove pool. The Kings Cove HOA will not be responsible for the loss or damage to personal property.
Closing The Pool
PARENTS PLEASE BE PROACTIVE WHEN THUNDER OR LIGHTNING OCCURS WHEN THE LIFEGUARD IS OFF DUTY. PLEASE GET EVERYONE OUT OF THE POOL RIGHT AWAY. THIS IS FOR EVERYONE’S SAFETY.
The pool may be closed for health reasons or to rectify the water quality and will reopen when the pool is deemed safe.
In case of inclement weather, the lifeguard will not report until weather improves. If the weather becomes inclement during the day, the lifeguard will remain at the pool for one (1) hour before deciding whether the pool should closed for the day.
