Rules & Regulations


(Updated by the Board of Directors in 2023)

The following rules and regulations have been established for the protection and benefit of all members.

This is your pool, and no set of rules can be more effective than your adherence to them.

Parents, please instruct your children and urge them to observe all rules and obey the instructions of the pool manager and all other employees. The manager and other authorized personnel are the absolute
authority on the enforcement of all rules and regulations of the Carlisle Swim Club.

Any violation of these rules shall be considered sufficient cause for the immediate suspension of pool privileges for offending members. Successive violation may be considered sufficient cause for cancellation of membership.

The Carlisle Swim Club shall not be responsible for any accident, injury, theft, personal injury, personal loss or damage to personal property on the premises of the Club. The cost of any Club property damage
shall be charged to the responsible active member.

No alcoholic beverages are permitted on Carlisle Swim Club property, apart from specific Club sponsored events when alcohol can be brought onto the
premises only as authorized by the Board of Directors.

Each member will be REQUIRED to sign an INFORMED CONSENT/LIABILITY WAIVER /RELEASE AGREEMENT form before receiving their annual membership every year. Signing this form is a condition
of membership to the club. If you choose not to sign the waiver, you will not be considered a member of the club and will not be allowed admission into the club.
