Please read the policies of the Garden City Swim Club carefully. All members are required to follow all procedures outlined in our policies & rules.

Guests
GCSC members may bring guests to the pool.

Children 2 and under FREE

Members wishing to have a party during normal business hours must contact the pool manager at least one week prior to the party date. Based on the number of swimmers, type of party and expected membership usage for the day, the manager may decide to add an additional guard. If the manager determines that an additional guard is needed the member will be charged an additional $8 per hour for the duration of the party. All guests must sign in at the manager’s office before entering the pool. Members wishing to hold parties with large numbers of swimmers should consider a night time party. The manager on duty has the final say on whether a party is too large to be held during the day.

The Club or the pool, as appropriate, will close or not be opened if any of the following conditions should occur:

  1. The Club will not open if the forecast high temperature for the day is 65 degrees or less.

  3. The pool will be closed for 30 minutes following the last thunder clap in the immediate area.
