Please review all club rules regarding pool sessions below.

Pool session rules:

The club’s ability to rent pool space depends on our members’ ability to treat pools respectfully and responsibly. This means:

  • All ACA Safety Guidelines must be met and are paraphrased below. They can be found in their legal form by clicking here.
    • Waiver of Release and Liability must be read and signed before participating.
    • ACA Membership is required. See a club officer to become an ACA member quickly and painlessly.
    • Report any property damage immediately to a club officer.
    • Report any injuries immediately to a club officer.
    • Wear a lifejacket/PFD.
    • Persons under the influence will be asked to leave.
    • Float Bags must be in the boat and inflated.
  • All WSAC/YMCA Rules must be followed:
    • Anyone can participate in pool sessions. Parental permission is required for anyone under 18 years old.
    • Time limits for Pool and Locker facilities must be respected and adhered to.
    • Wash your boat (inside and out) before attending a pool session.
    • Remove your shoes before walking on the pool deck.
    • Do not "seal" launch off of the pool edges (unless a special launch mat has been designated by the BSBS pool committee).
    • Be courteous to your fellow paddlers, club officers, and host facility staff. Do not engage in dangerous activity.
    • Obey any other rules established by the host pool facility.
  • Do not contact the host facility with questions, concerns or complaints. Pool sessions are run solely by BSBS. Direct all concerns to a BSBS club officer.

Pool session priveledges will be suspended for violation of any of these rules!!!
