Rules and Regulations
Diamond “A” Recreation Association


POOL

A. THE GATE MUST REMAIN CLOSED AND LOCKED AT ALL TIMES EXCEPT WHEN IN USE, in which case members present must monitor the open gate.  It is a violation of our insurance policy to prop or leave the gate open.   All members are given a key. State law requires that all pool areas be enclosed for this reason.

B. A MEMBER MUST BE PRESENT WITH GUESTS AT ALL TIMES WHILE THE GUESTS USE THE RECREATION FACILITIES, which means, you the member must always be present with visiting relatives and friends. Please adhere to this policy. It is a requirement of our liability insurance. NO EXCEPTIONS.

C. There is no lifeguard.  Members and their guests swim at their own risk.  The Association Board members and the members of the Diamond “A” Recreation Association accept no responsibility for loss, injury or accidents that may occur in the pool area or on the premises.

D. No diving, no jumping, no running, no pushing, no skating, and no “horseplay” of any kind are permitted in the pool area.  Parents or a responsible adult must supervise their children’s actions.
 
E. Anyone in the pool area under the age of 14 years old must be under adult supervision.  The attending adult must be at least 18 years of age.  This is a state law.

F. Proper swim attire is required at all times.

G. Please shower prior to entering the pool to remove suntan lotion, oils, etc.  Such substances will cause staining of the pool tile and filter problems.

H. Please enjoy your radio with the use of headphones.  This allows each of us to enjoy our choice of music or simply the quiet.

I. No pets are allowed in the pool area.  This is a County Health Department rule.  Service animals are allowed.

J. Children in diapers must wear waterproof pants.  Dirty diapers are not to be left in the pool bathrooms or pool area.

K. Glassware of any kind shall not be brought into the pool area.  If ANY broken glass gets into the pool, the pool must be emptied to remove it.  This is a very costly process.

L. Pool hours are from 6:30 AM until 10:00 PM. Security alarm arms and sounds after 10:00 PM.

M. No more than 10 guests, including you and members of your household, are allowed without first submitting a rental application to board director Janet Nusbaum.

TENNIS COURT RULES and COURT ETIQUETTE

In order to provide access to the Diamond “A” Recreation Center tennis courts for the largest number of players, especially during peak demand times, we ask that all players follow these guidelines:

A. AT LEAST ONE DIAMOND “A” RECREATION ASSOCIATION MEMBER MUST BE A PLAYER ON THE COURTS AT ALL TIMES.  Only members and their guests are allowed to use the Association’s tennis courts. Please adhere to this policy. It is a requirement of our liability insurance. NO EXCEPTIONS.
 
B. No single person may hold or use a court when others wish to play and no other court is available.

C. If all courts are in use, please yield the court after 1-? hours of play to anyone who is waiting for a court.   You should finish your current game and wave the players waiting on.

D. If all courts are in use, new players arriving may inquire of the current players when a court will be available.   You should wait until a break in play to inquire and then remain quietly by the court until it is available.   If you leave after inquiring, you may not return and expect the court to be available.

E. If no one is waiting for a court then, of course, you are welcome to play as long as you like.

F. Tennis is a sport…please be a good sport and be considerate of your fellow players.

G.  On the tennis courts players should wear appropriate tennis attire (no shirtless players please) and suitable tennis shoes (white soles specifically designed for tennis).

B. The Court is for playing bocce ball.  No “horseplay” or running.

C. Please return all equipment to the storage locker when your play is finished.


AFTER USING THE REC. FACILITIES….WHEN YOU LEAVE

A. Pool furniture is Association property and is not to be removed.  When you leave, please return furniture to their original arrangements.

THE RECREATION CENTER IS MAINTAINED BY ALL OF THE MEMBERS.  WE WOULD APPRECIATE A SHARED RESPONSIBILITY TO ENFORCE THESE RULES.  THANK YOU.
