CEDARBROOK RULES AND REGULATIONS

The following rules have been established for the protection of all members to assure the safe operation of the pool facilities and to provide enjoyable recreation for all members and their guests. Members must observe all rules and obey instructions of the Pool Manager and other club employees. Parents are responsible for ensuring that children understand and observe these rules.  Any failure to comply with the rules may result in suspension of pool privileges.  

All persons use the pools and other facilities at their own risk.  

The Club is not responsible for loss or damage to personal belongings, bicycles or automobiles on the Club grounds. It is not safe to leave any valuables in the bathhouse.

Enforcement of the Rules

The Pool Manager and the operating staff are responsible for the enforcement of the rules.  Children and adults are expected to show them proper respect and cooperation at all times.  Talking back and arguing with staff including lifeguards is a serious infraction of rules and will be grounds for suspension of pool privileges.  The staff shall caution or if necessary shall suspend club privileges from anyone who is violating the rules.  Such suspension may be for the duration of the day in which the violation occurs.  Suspensions for longer periods may be made by the Pool Manager and the Board of Directors.
