We are very excited that we have been able to fully open the pool! After a long year all of us are looking forward to enjoying our pool, Waves Swim Team and Water Polo Team. Please ensure you read below about the pool updates as we are continuing to follow State and County direction.
Our Pool complies with the State, IDPH and DuPage County Health Department. At this time there are no limits on capacity outside of our normal capacity limits that we enforce if the pool gets to that capacity.
Chairs will be spread out to allow social distancing and we ask that you not move chairs. The chairs will also be set up in the grass to ensure members that would like to stay spread out can. As there will be chairs in the grass, we also are not allowing ball games to be played in the grass.
We ask that if you have not been fully vaccinated (two weeks past your last shot) that you wear a mask at the pool when you are not in the water.
Pool Logistics/Rentals/Concessions/Food and Grills
Entrance will continue to be at the side gate by the tennis courts. We are doing this to limit folks entering the locker rooms. When you exit the pool, you will also exit via the same gate.
Concessions are now open.
The water fountain will be in use for filling water bottles only. No drinking from the fountain.
You can bring food into the pool.
Grills will be available but you will need to check them in and out as they will need to be fully cleaned after each use.
We are fully open for Guests including Grandchildren and Immediate Adult Children. All will check in with the member and we will enter them as Guests in the system. Grandchildren and Immediate Adult Children are free and all other guest including Spouses of Immediate Adult Children will be charged $5 per guest per visit. On follow up visits check in will be faster as we will have them entered as guests.
Only immediate residents in the household are entered in the membership profiles.
Members but be at the pool the entire time their guests are at the pool.
All homeowners are automatically members when they pay their annual dues. If dues have not been paid homeowners and their families will not be allowed to enter the pool.
Outside Non-resident members that were members in good standing in 2019/2020 were sent a link to join the pool again and pay membership dues if they have not yet been paid.
New Membership Program (Mandatory for Pool Entrance)
We will be using a new automated membership tool this year. Signing up via the link that will be sent to you the week of May 24th will be required for entry to the pool. Once you receive the link you will be able to set up your account, enter your children names, summer caregiver name as well as pictures. The program we are using is called ESoft and it is a full Pool and Tennis Membership software solution that will help us become more automated and secure. This will have many benefits for us.
Ensure only members are allowed entrance. Having names of all members and their pictures will streamline our check in process as well.
All members will need to accept our pool rules when they sign up.
Ability to buy guest passes online. (Coming in July)
Sign up for classes and rentals. (Coming in 2022)
Ability for us to communicate with the neighborhood and/or all members via email.
We are available to assist you with setting up your account if you are having issues.
If you did not pay for annual dues this year via credit cards, we mostly likely do not have your email address. Please send your email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you the link to register for the new membership site.
All non-resident members please confirm your membership and email also with email@example.com where we can also answer any questions, you have.
If you have any questions, please ping any of our HOA Board Members who are listed on www.hobsonwest.org
