At the Q&A Meeting on 4/21, we shared encouraging news from the Larimer County Health Department. It's possible that we could open in mid-June to early-July, but more direction will be needed from the Governor's Office.
Early information indicates that we may need to implement social distancing measures such as the layout and spacing of furniture and marked waiting spots for concessions.
The proper pool operation and chemical use that we follow yearly should inactivate the virus in the water, per the CDC website.
We are holding off on the operations needed to open the pool and remove the cover until early June at this point. We won't turn on the boiler yet either, to save on costs as well. The new boiler will only take two days to heat the pool so we can turn that around pretty quickly.
As we learn more information, we'll be sure to share it!
What else has the Board been working on?
The pool may be closed for the season but there is still plenty going on! The Board continues to meet in the off-season to plan and make decisions. All members are always welcome at our meetings.
Here are a few highlights:
At the annual meeting, we shared with you the vendor issues with the boiler that led to periods of cold temperatures the past few seasons. We have good news to share! A new boiler is being installed with a new warranty at no cost to us, and we'll also be reimbursed for our past expenses. This is a huge win for everyone!
New board members have joined during the off-season. Welcome to Alan (At-Large/Grounds), Clint (Vice President), Felicia (Concessions) and Suzanne (Events)! Jeremy Lerner was appointed as President by the Board. We welcome more members to join the board, particularly for Webmaster, Secretary and Co-Treasurer.
Our Annual Meeting has a new date this year! Normally we hold the annual meeting in November. At the last annual meeting, we voted to move the meeting to September so we can discuss things while they closer to the end of the season. Swimming will be open for meeting attendees and their families, so plan to join us for discussion, updates and a special last evening swim! Click here to sign up so we have enough guards for the evening.
Thank you so much for welcoming our new lifeguard staff. We are enjoying our season with you so far!
We also want to thank you for your patience with us as we learn the systems that are in place and implement what the board has asked us to enforce. Please know that everything we do is for the safety of all patrons.Below are a few reminders and updated rules that have been enforced recently, along with a few policy changes that the pool board has implemented this year. These are also printed and posted on the whiteboard by the pool entrance.
Please let us know if you have any questions by emailing the board (firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you! ~ SCCA Guard Staff and Pool Board
Lap Lane Swim:
We removed the lane line for now to allow more room to swim. If you would like to swim laps, let us know when you come to the pool and we are happy to put it back in!
All children who are reliant upon a flotation device MUST have an adult who is IN THE WATER and within arms’ reach of the child.
For the safety of all swimmers, no flotation devices are allowed on the slide or in the diving well.
Over sized lake rafts are not allowed. We cannot safely see other swimmers under and around them.
For the safety of all patrons, a rest break will be called during the last 10-15 minutes of each hour (:45 or :50). This allows children to rest and staff to maintain the cleanliness of your facility. All children under the age of 18 must get out of the water. Thank you!
Lifeguards will be performing drills each afternoon to continuously practice our skills. The concession stand will be closed during this time. Thanks for your cooperation during this time!
Pool activities will be suspended in the event of inclement weather, outside temperature of 65 or less. If there is lightning or thunder the pool will be closed for 30 minutes after the last thunder heard or lightning seen. Keep in mind if the pool closes due to weather it could remain closed for the entire day, depending on the time of
inclement weather and weather forecast for that day.

Members have 10 guest passes on their account.
Members may bring up to 6 guests per family at a time. If you would like to bring more guests,
please see the information on the website about booking a day pavilion party or an evening private
If members bring more than the guest limit, this requires the pool to pay for additional lifeguards
to be called in to ensure the guard to patron ratio.
Diving Board Safety:
If you are using the diving board, please go straight to the ladder/wall
If you are swimming in the deep end (but not using the diving board), please stay on the side of the red line opposite of the diving board.
During peak times when the deep end becomes full, we may determine that the diving board needs to be closed. An orange cone will be placed on the board during this time.
