Member belongings must be removed when exiting the Club.  Any locker with a lock remaining at closing will have its contents removed.  Executive Lockers & Premier Lockers are exempt from this policy.  Items in rented lockers can remain overnight.

Pool lane reservations are required.  Members must register for a specific day, time, and pool lane.  Time slots start at the top of the hour and are 45 minutes long.  This 15 minute buffer between reservations eliminates crowding on the pool deck.  We appreciate everyone’s courtesy and respect for timeliness when your reserved time slot is done.

Online reservations can be booked on our pool website.
Reservations cannot be booked at our front desk.

As mandated by the city, masks are required on the pool deck.  Masks must be worn when entering the pool area.  Prior to getting in the pool, masks can be placed on provided shelving or hooks on the pool deck.  We recommend bringing a ziplock bag to place your mask in.

Fitness classes will start the week of Monday, August 10.

All equipment on the fitness floor are spaced out to ensure safe physical distancing.  Additional hand sanitizer stations and gym wipe canisters are placed throughout the Fitness Floor.  In addition to enhanced staff cleaning protocols, members are required to clean before and after use of all equipment, including weights, mats, bands, and other props.

Until further notice, the basketball court, squash courts, and racquetball courts are unavailable, as safe physical distancing cannot be adhered to during these activities.
