Summer membership responsibilities
The Edgebrook Club welcomes its summer members. We hope you will enjoy and derive benefit from our wonderful facilities. By being courteous and respectful of others, the summer season at Edgebrook will be pleasurable and safe for all concerned. Our summer membership offers full use of the club facilities and reservation privileges for the summer season: Saturday May 15th - September 6 Labor Day.
Membership requires certain responsibilities. Summer members, family, and guests must adhere to the following conditions
- Pay in advance for additional activities such as guests, swim and tennis lessons, concessions, etc.
- Follow Club rules and policies regarding both swim and tennis facilities.
- Use facilities in an acceptable and proper manner, respecting club property and other members' rights.
- Be responsible and pay for any property damage of club premises by applicant, family members, or their guests.
Summer Membership Cards
Summer members will be issued 2010 summer membership cards, which will be available for pick up in the office by an adult in the family after May 15th.
ALL SUMMER MEMBERS WILL BE REQUIRED TO PRESENT THEIR MEMBERSHIP CARD EACH TIME THEY ENTER THE CLUB! No summer member will be admitted to the pool without a card. The card is non-transferable and misuse of card and/or club privileges may result in suspension from the club. We ask that you report lost or stolen cards immediately. A fee of $5 will be charged for a replacement card.
The cabana can be rented for parties. The member rate is $75 for four hours. At the time of reservation two checks are required: $75 for the actual rental and $75 for a damage/cleaning deposit. The day of the event you may prefer to pay in cash; therefore we will return your check to you. The damage/cleaning deposit check will be returned to you after a passing inspection.
Four barbeques are available for your use. There are two on the pool deck and two at the cabana.
For your convenience, there is a snack bar on the pool deck. The Snack Shack is completely independent from Edgebrook and we cannot be responsible for changes to their hours of operation.
Please review the enclosed Pool Rules with your child(ren) and emphasize the importance of listening to and obeying the lifeguards. Those who do not follow the rules or who disobey the lifeguards will be sent home and may be restricted from future use of the pool.
IMPORTANT:Parents, if you argue with a lifeguard in front of your child, you are conveying to the child that he/she does not have to obey the lifeguard. This is very dangerous! If you have a complaint, talk to the Aquatics Director (Laura Halter), or the Executive Director (Brad Hixenbaugh).
Children under age ten, and older children who cannot swim, must be accompanied by an adult whenever they are at the club. Children age ten and over may be asked to pass a swimming test before they can be left unsupervised.
Please supervise your children. Although we have a lifeguard on duty whenever the pool is in operation, Edgebrook is not a babysitting service. You are responsible for the safety and supervision of your own children when they are on club property.
Grandchildren are not covered under your membership unless they are living with you for the summer. They are considered the same as houseguests.
Babies and toddlers, who are not potty trained, need to wear cloth diapers underneath water-proof pants, or special Little Swimmer diapers so that accidents will be contained and not pollute the pool. DO NOT use regular disposable diapers as they disintegrate, spread disease, and clog pool filters. Little Swimmer diapers are sold in the office.
Washington State Health Department Regulations state that is unlawful and unsanitary to change a baby’s diaper on the pool deck. Baby-changing stations are provided in both the men’s and women’s dressing rooms.
Edgebrook does not allow free entrance to the pool for houseguests. They are expected to pay the guest fees and be accompanied by the member, the same as other guests. There are a few exceptions to this rule, such as exchange students living with the members, but these exceptions must be approved in writing in advance by the Office Manager or Club Director.
Swim guests must be paid for at the time of entry, and be accompanied by the host member for their entire stay at the Club. No more than five guests at a time are allowed with a Family Membership.
Whether or not a guest intends to swim, and even if they are just watching kids, they still need to pay a guest fee or have a Babysitter Pass in order to enter the pool area. Parents of Junior Members also need to pay the guest fee and be counted as part of the Junior’s guest limit. The alternative is purchasing a Family Membership.
Age 2 and under Free
Children & adults $8 each
Junior Members Guest Policy
To prevent overcrowding the pool with non-members, Junior Memberships are limited to ten guests per summer at $8 each. Parents of Junior Members are counted as guests. Junior Members may not purchase a Swim Guest Coupon Book or Babysitter Pass.
Swim Guest Coupon Books
Swim Guest Coupon Books (12 coupons) are available through the office for $48 each. These reduced-rate coupons may be used anytime during the summer of 2009. There will be no refunds for lost or unused coupons. Swim Guest Coupon Books are available to members via Family Memberships only.
Unlike previous years at Edgebrook, there is no longer a limit of one coupon book per family per summer.
Child Care Pass
A Child CarePass is only available with a family membership. It is valid for the whole summer and may be used by whoever you employee to watch your children. It is NOT a guest pass. A nanny is considered an employee, not a member of your family, and must have a Child Care Pass. The cost of the pass is $50.00.
