Hours of Operation & Restrictions

The pool will be open every day rain or shine. Please refer to the official pool schedule for hours of operation. The exception to being open would be due to a thunder/lightning storm. If this situation arises the lifeguards will close the pool and ask everyone to clear the deck as quickly as possible. They will then wait to see if the storm passes and make the call whether to close the pool for the rest of the day. Everyone must be off the pool deck by 8:45 pm Sunday through Thursday, and 9:00 pm Friday and Saturday. (Closing time is subject to change) The pool deck is closed to patrons during the scheduled maintenance hours.

Juniors

All beginner swimmers must be actively supervised by a parent or guardian and must stay in the shallow end unless they can swim the length of the pool. Parents of non-swimmers must be in the water and within arms reach at all times. All swimmers will be asked to take a lap test to determine deep end privileges. Care providers must be informed of this regulation. Children must be toilet trained or wear disposable diapers/plastic pants with snug fitting legs.

Lap Test

Any swimmer or guest wishing to use the deep end must pass a swim test with a lifeguard. The swimmer must prove they can swim the length of the pool without any struggle. The swimmer must use the front crawl with side breathing. This lap test will only be given during adult swim. Please go to the snack bar and let the lifeguards know you wish to take the test. A swimmer can only take the test once per day.

Snack Bar

The snack bar will be open from the beginning of Open Swim until 8:00 pm Sunday through Thursday, and 9:00 pm Friday and Saturday. The Snack Bar does not accept cash. All snacks will be charged to member’s accounts.

Water Safety

Diving is allowed only from the deep end of the pool. No flips, spins, or backward dives and jumps are allowed. Only one person is allowed in an inner tube circle at a time. There is to be absolutely no horseplay of any kind. No tennis balls or any other hard balls are allowed.

Tennis Courts, Weight Room, and Spa

Use of the weight room and tennis courts is for full Club members only. Any adult swim members may use the spa and bath house locker rooms. Juniors under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult when using the spa.

Guests

A guest must come with a member. They may be refused or a limit on the number of guests may be imposed if the pool is overcrowded. Please call the main number at 503-287-8749 to determine the status. We will know by 12:30 pm every day the status of guests, though occasionally, the status will be determined at a later time if the pool quickly becomes overcrowded. Please remember to always call the Club first before coming with your guest to minimize any inconveniences. The daily guest fee is $6.00 per guest. All guests must sign-in at the snack bar before entering the pool. The snack bar does not accept cash, guest fees will be charged to members accounts. Guests are not allowed during the morning swim times. Guests include all patrons using the pool area (this include the deck and barbeque).

Irvington Pool Guest Policy
  • The Irvington pool will be staffed accordingly for anticipated hot weather. Three staff persons will normally be scheduled during peak hour of 3:00 – 7:00 pm. The pool manager or head lifeguard will determine if a fourth employee is needed. This will ensure that upon opening, the pool will be available to all members and their guests.
  • The Irvington Pool Manual states that we will use a ratio of one lifeguard to 20 patrons.
  • When the capacity reaches 80%, the head lifeguard will alert the front desk. The time at which the call was made will be recorded at both the front desk and the pool. Guests will not be allowed 30 minutes after this call has been made (example: The pool staff calls the front desk at 2:45 pm saying that pool is getting full. No guests will be allowed at 3:15 pm).
  • Once the decision has been made to not allow guests, it will stay in place until at least 6:00 pm. The head lifeguard will determine if the pool will allow guests after 6:00 pm or not. They will contact the front desk with this decision.

Thank you for your understanding of our guest policy. We want to do our absolute best to help ensure a great summer for all of our members and their guests.
