BEVERLY CREST SWIM & RACQUET CLUB
a private club of the Beverly Crest Homeowners’ Association
7100 Henseys Way, Charlotte, NC 28270
All Beverly Crest residents and non-resident members should read and be familiar with the updated pool rules. If you have children, please review this document with them as well, and please note that a lack of awareness of these rules is not a valid excuse to not follow them. They will be strictly enforced and a member’s privileges may be suspended for a lack of compliance.
The annual calendar for the pool will be available in May on the Pool 2021 page of our website. The pool will open on Saturday May 29th. We close the pool after Labor Day Weekend at the end of the day on Monday September 6th. When school is out for the summer, the hours of operation of the pool are different than the hours when school is in session. Before heading to the pool, please check the calendar on the Pool 2021 page of our website and at the pool entrance marquee for hours of operation.
GENERAL RULES, REQUIREMENTS & CONDUCT
Beverly Crest residents must be current in the payment of annual dues, late fees and other amounts owed (including dues for 2021 and all prior years) to the Beverly Crest Homeowners’ Association (“HOA”).
Until you are current in the payment of your dues and other amounts owed to the HOA, you will not be permitted to utilize the BCSRC facilities, and your children may not participate in the swim team. In addition, your children may not serve as lifeguards at the BCSRC facilities.
ADMISSION TO THE POOL
Admission and sign-in at the pool will be similar years past. The entrance will again be the right side of the clubhouse as you are facing the clubhouse. This is the only entrance and exit from the pool. Key fobs will be required to enter the access gate. Swipe the key fob along the transponder attached to the gate and it will unlock the door to enter. Residents must utilize their assigned fob to access the pool. Entry without a fob is prohibited.
*Key fobs were distributed prior to the start of the 2017 pool season and each household received two (2) key fobs. If you lost or misplaced your key fob, call Cusick Property Management at (704) 544-7779 to schedule a time to pick up your new fob at a replacement cost of $50. Households are responsible for all key fobs assigned to them.
Guests must be accompanied by a BCSRC member and adhere to the pool rules. Anyone who fails to follow the rules or a lifeguard’s instruction will be asked to leave the property.
There is no charge for guests who reside outside Mecklenburg and Union County or extended family members. Guests living in Mecklenburg/Union County must be accompanied by a member and the guest must pay a guest fee of $2.00 per day per guest. Fees will be handled by the on-site lifeguard. There is no charge for baby sitters or guests under the age of three.
If a child is unable to swim ½ length of the pool or can only swim using a flotation device, the child must be accompanied by an adult in the water at all times.
The baby pool is for children up to age four. Children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult in the baby pool area at all times.
Children under 12 years of age are not permitted to enter the pool area without a parent or guardian. Lifeguards are not responsible for activity outside of the immediate pool gated area.
All Children who are not toilet trained are required by the NC Health Department to wear swim diapers. Cloth or disposable diapers are not permitted. This is for the health and safety of the swimmers as inhaling water with fecal matter is dangerous.
Conduct by any person deemed dangerous, vulgar, abusive, or disorderly by any lifeguard is not permitted and lifeguards have the right to ask the person(s) to leave the premises. Please be considerate of others.
The lap lane is delineated by a lane rope. When a swimmer enters the lap lane to swim laps, all other swimmers must leave the lap lane and no other swimmers may enter the lap lane area. Sitting or hanging on the lane rope is not allowed. Throwing objects into the lap lane is also not permitted. The lap lane is always available upon request to be set up by the lifeguards. We ask you limit your time with the lap lane open to one (1) hour. Please have a lifeguard assist with the removal of the lap lane rope once you are finished to allow for the pool to be more accessible to all guests.
Adult swim is announced by the lifeguards at the :50 minute mark each hour the pool is open. This is a 10 minute period where no children under the age of 18 are permitted in the pool. This time allows a break for the guards as well a chance to clean the pool/area and check the chemicals of both pools. Adults are allowed to have infants in the pool during adult swim. The one exception of adult swim is the last :50 minute mark of the day will not be called for adult swim. During this exception, all pool guests are allowed to swim until the end of the day when the lifeguards announce the pool is closed.
In the event of a thunderstorm, swimmers are to clear the pool during the storm and remain out of the water for at least thirty (30) minutes after lightning and/or thunder have ceased. Lifeguards will indicate when it is safe to re-enter the pool.
Alcoholic beverages are not allowed for anyone under the age of twenty-one (21). Consumption of alcoholic beverages is a matter of personal preference. A person showing signs of intoxication will be denied use of the facilities and asked to leave the premises.
Outdoor music is provided by Beverly Crest’s XM Radio; please consult with lifeguard if needed. Other personal music/entertainment devices are permitted only with the use of headphones or low-level volume for personal enjoyment. Beverly Crest is not responsible for damage, loss or theft of such devices
No glass of any type is permitted in or around the pool or the pool deck (this includes beer, alcohol, wine bottles, or any type of glass container). Lifeguards are instructed to check coolers for glass at the sign-in desk. All glass bottles found at the sign-in table or around the pool will be asked to be disposed into the nearest garbage can immediately.
No pets are permitted in the pool area or the clubhouse.
New for 2021 – No floats or rafts are permitted in the pool. However, noodles are permitted and Coastguard approved puddle jumpers or life vests are recommended for children who are unable to swim.
If the propane tanks to the grills are empty, please notify the lifeguard on-site. There is usually a replacement tank in the storage area. If you do replace the tank please inform the pool manager or on-site lifeguard so it can be refilled. If there is not a replacement tank you may refill the tank and submit your receipt for reimbursement to the Beverly Crest Board.
Trash cans are placed throughout the pool deck. Please be responsible and clean up any trash or messes during your time at the pool. All trash in your area must be discarded in the trash cans before you leave the pool for the day.
Ping Pong Table, Corn Hole Boards, Bocce, Connect Four, Jenga and several other pool games will be available this summer on the pool deck and the extended entertainment area. Please ask a lifeguard for any equipment that is stored in the guard office or storage closet. We will have a 60-minute usage rule, if others are waiting. If you appear to be abusing or misusing the equipment, you will be asked to end your time with the games. If you cause damage to the equipment, you are responsible to reimburse the BCSRC for the damage. All supplies are to be stored in the storage closet by the on-site lifeguards until
requested to use.
There will be three lifeguards staffed at our pool during most operating hours. Any concerns about lifeguard behavior should be reported to Aqua Tech Pool Management Group.
Please remember that no one is permitted to enter the pool without a lifeguard on duty and in position. No exceptions.
