- Please shower before using the pools. The pool deck and locker rooms can get slippery when wet. Please walk carefully and consider wearing flip flops or water shoes.
- No cell phone use of any kind is allowed in the locker rooms or in the hot tub. Please remain clothed in the common spaces of the universal/gender neutral locker room.

A youth may stay on a Family Membership as a dependent through the end of their 18th year. A youth is considered a dependent if they are:
- A biological, adopted, or foster child
- A sibling, niece/nephew, or grandchild that resides at the same residence as you for more than half the year
Once youth turn 19, they will need to transition int either a Teen Membership or be added to the Family Membership as another adult. Both options cost the same, as a Teen Membership is $30/month and each additional adult in a Family Membership is also $30/month.
