Amendment to Standard Operating Procedures dated 21 July
As we continue the summer during Phase 3, we think it is prudent to send out a couple of reminders and an amendment to Phase 3 pool operating procedures, especially for our new temporary members not with us at the beginning of the summer. Several of these items were discussed at our board meeting 21 July and need to be addressed. An updated version of the sop is here: Updated Phase 3 SOP
Lessons now Authorized:
- Individual swim and dive instruction can resume at Hunt Valley.
- No lessons on Saturday or Sunday.
- Participants must be members and have a table reservation during the lesson time. Lap lanes will not be used. The diving well must not be blocked off. Maintain 10 feet of physical distance where practicable.
- Instructor must be an off duty life guard or Hunt Valley Swim and Dive team assist coach, as these are the individuals who have been trained in the phasing guidelines for swim instruction.
- Club members interested in swim or dive instruction must work directly with the instructor to set up lessons. Please ask a lifeguard to access the private lesson binder (which is being kept in the guard office) for a list and contact information for instructors.
Under 12 Drop Off Rule Exception:
- Children under 12 may come to the pool without their parent only under these conditions:
- The child’s Head of Household, who is a member in good standing, must create a table reservation on their behalf.
- The children arrive at the pool with another Member Family with their own reservation.
- An adult from that family assumes responsibility for them.
- Each family maintains social distancing guidelines
- NO GUESTS at Hunt Valley Swim Club. It has come to our attention that the NO GUEST policy is being ignored by some of our members. We have set up rigorous protocols, as they are the only way to manage the requirements we must follow to ensure that we comply with the social distancing guidelines mandated by the government. Please do not abuse our NO GUEST policy by claiming non family members as members. Per our Bylaws, family members are defined as members of your household living in your home. A household member is NOT a friend or relative visiting for the weekend. A family member is NOT a friend you picked up that day for a three-hour reservation at the pool that is NOT a member. NO GUESTS MEANS NO GUESTS.
- If you are a new permanent or temporary member, we ask you to update your family profile on our membership system. This must be done to allow an accurate count at the pool and to enforce the no guest rule, which is the only way we can comply with the social distancing guidelines mandated by the government. To update your profile, login to the huntvalleyswimclub.org website with your billing email, and in the member dashboard select “Household & Notifications”. There you can add family members. Birthdates only required for children under 18.
- If the NO GUEST policy continues to be abused, we will begin unannounced checking of Identification for every member who enters the facility.
- Please pick up any food orders in the parking lot. It is your responsibility to coordinate pick up your delivery, NOT the life guards or pool manager. The PA system will not be used to make announcements for your food. Vendors, who have not made arrangements with the customer and loiter at the front gate, will be turned away and told to remain in the parking lot.
- Reserving the Baby Pool tables. Do not reserve the Baby Pool unless you have a child, age 6 and under, who is using the baby pool. Any reservation at the Baby Pool without a child in your profile may be deleted at any time without notice.
- The gate at the back of the main pool deck leading into the poison ivy in the woods is not an extra bathroom area. The bathrooms in the club house are open. Please use them. Members are reminded there are cameras throughout the facility.
- NO GLASS CONTAINERS ON THE DECK. No drinks of any kind while in the pool.
