CLFCA Pool Rules

The purpose of the Clear Lake Forest community pool rules is to uphold a family-friendly environment for a diverse community. Failure to abide by these rules may result in the suspension of the Owner’s, Leaseholder’s or Guest’s pool privileges. It is imperative that residents and their guests abide by the pool rules to promote an enjoyable experience for all.

By completing this document, I (we) agree to follow all pool rules and regulations. I (we) understand that any violation of the rules may result in discontinued pool privileges. The pool rules for the Clear Lake Forest Community Association are as follows:

  • Access: All members must check in at the front lifeguard desk and register their guests. Access to the Pool is granted to Clear Lake Forest Residents, Leaseholders and their guests after completion of the CLFCA Amenity Agreement Form and approval.Please note: Homeowners not current on assessments or late fees from the prior year will not have access to the facilities.
  • Leaseholder residents must submit their lease agreement with expiration date as a condition of gaining amenity access. Leaseholder landlords must be current on CLFCA assessments and fees from the prior year.
  • The CLFCA Amenity Access Registration is the first of the two-part process of accessing the pool and other amenities. Once you’ve completed the registration form, you will be receiving an email with further directions within a few weeks. Please remember that you may only obtain access for people who are legitimately living in your home. (Nannies or grandparents who regularly care for children will be added as family members at registration). Allowing non-residents access to the pool by giving them your Pool amenity ID or requesting an access code for them will violate the community policies and your household may lose access to the pool and other CLF amenities.
  • Pool Access ID, email, or name must be presented for entrance into the pool recreational facility and allows entrance to the permanent household members plus up to 30 guests per season. State law mandates that no children under the age of 10 may be at the pool without an adult 18 years or older. Children 10 to 17 may have access to the pool recreational facility without an adult (18 years or older) by showing their Amenity Access ID, email or be registered as a family member. Children aged 14-17 can bring guests (14-17 years old) with them when unsupervised by an adult. (Guest passes will be deducted from their account.) More than 7 guests is considered a party and a pool reservation must be made.
  • Guest Policy: A homeowner must accompany any guests. 30 guests per address are permitted free of charge each season. Additional guests are $3.00 each and can be purchased on our website. Host assumes responsibility for their guests’actions while on Clear Lake Forest amenity property and must remain with the guest at the pool.
  • Lifeguards are the authority while on duty. Failure to abide by Pool Rules or to follow the directions of the lifeguards, Board Members or Pool Committee members may result in loss of access to the pool.
  • The lifeguards, Pool Committee Members or the HOA Board Members have the authority to close the recreational facilities for inclement weather or health/safety concerns.
  • A 10-minute safety break is scheduled every hour for the lifeguards. No one is allowed in the pool during the 10-minute safety break.
