Pool Capacity and Reservations
Pool Capacity and Reservations
Procedures are subject to change at the discretion of the Board of Directors based upon requirements and guidance from county/state/federal authorities and KGRC’s insurer.
Capacity and Eligible Members:
At this time, consistent with Virginia’s Phase 3 requirements, KGRC will admit members only, including “August members”. No guests will be admitted. All members must reserve swim space as indicated in the sign up. Members sharing a lane or swim space must be from the same household. KGRC will also allow diving and admit up to 3 members per board, up to 6 members total by reservation. Members aged 11 and older may swim without a parent/guardian. Children under 11 must be accompanied by a swimming parent or guardian. The Manager may ask members to demonstrate proficiency at continuous lap swimming. KGRC has a capacity limit within the club of 85.
As required by the Office of the Governor and the Virginia Department of Health, members not in the same household must maintain a minimum of 10 feet distance from other members at all times - both in and out of the water. Members are provided with a deck space (Cabana) for placing personal items. No seating is provided but members may bring their own chairs (BYOC).
Consistent with Virginia requirements, recreational equipment, including the ping pong tables and tetherball, are closed. The Snack Shack is not open at this time.
The drinking fountain is closed, however members are welcome to use the water bottle filler. Please use the disinfecting wipes provided to clean afterward.
To allow staff to focus on safety as the first priority, KGRC is requiring members to use Signup Genius for lap lane reservations. An account is not needed. This link was sent to the membership via email. Please email [email protected] if you need the link or have problems using the website.
Walk-ins are not permitted. Given the high demand and need to execute appropriate cleaning procedures, 50-minute time slots will be available for reservation, which includes the time to enter, swim, and exit. Each time slot will be followed by a 10-minute cleaning and transition period. Members should arrive at KGRC no more than 5 minutes before their scheduled time, be ready to swim, and practice social distancing while waiting. Members must exit the Club promptly at the end of their time slot.
For the benefit of the membership as a whole and in the interest of fairness, members may reserve no more than three days in advance and book no more than 3 total reservations per week, per household member. (For example: Sunday reservations will be available on Thursday.) You may add your name to an open slot for the next day after 9 p.m. without counting against your 3/week limit. Reservations beyond these limits are subject to cancellation. Members are permitted one reservation for each eligible household member per day. The Club will release reservations in increments, as appropriate, and reserves the right to limit reservations to ensure the safety of members and staff, as well as availability of the pool to the membership.
Senior and Immunocompromised Members:
To serve all eligible members, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 12 p.m. to 12:50 p.m., are designated for members age 65-plus and those with pre-existing, “high risk” health conditions. These hours are subject to change based on member feedback and guidance from county/state/federal authorities.
Members with mobility issues may want to reserve #1 or #6 for ease of access to stairs, or contact the pool Manager for further assistance. Note that stairs in both areas are now equipped with handrails.
The KGRC Board of Directors may extend or limit these times as needed to provide the best opportunity and safest environment for members.
