July 4th Hours and Other Updates


This is to remind everyone that pool hours tomorrow, July 4th, are from 11-6 pm, as is posted on the website. Also, since we are still in Phase 2 tomorrow, the first two hours the pool is open (11-1) is reserved for 18+ only, and the pool may be used only for lap swimming and diving by reservation.

Under Phase 3 beginning Monday, the normal Summer schedule will continue to be in effect.  The pool will be open from 11-9 daily, with the exception of Sundays, when the pool is open from 12-9.  This will continue until Fairfax County schools go back into session.

Also, there have been some questions about our transition into Phase 3.  Please see below for some answers and additional information.

  • During Phase 3, the first hour the pool is open (not first 2 hours as in Phase 2) will be reserved for lap swimmers 18 and over.  However, the baby pool will be open by reservation, and members/families with kids below the age of 18 are allowed on pool grounds during this first hour.  The pool will open for free swim after the first hour, and the number of lap lanes will be reduced to three.
  • At this time, we will not be using a reservation system for lap swimming. We will reevaluate this and the number of lap lanes required as we observe how Phase 3 goes.  While we do not anticipate full lap lanes, if you are concerned about the number of swimmers, you can always call ahead to the front desk to find out how full they are.
  • The pool will revert to our usual practice, as described in our pool rules, of swimming breaks for swimmers 14 and under for 15 minutes before the hour to the hour (except during the first hour the pool is open that is limited to adult lap swimming).
  • As previously announced, there will be no guest passes allowed this summer.  This was a decision made in the interest of the safety and well being of all our members and life guards.  Any guest passes that were purchased as part of your membership will be rolled over to next season.
  • As we said in the last email, we will be putting out a limited number of chairs and lounge chairs for use by members.  We will not be putting out our full stock of chairs at this time, as all of this requires additional cleaning by the life guards.  We continue to encourage you to bring your own chairs if you desire.  Again, we will reevaluate this as we observe how Phase 3 goes.
  • In order to keep the pool deck clear to allow for social distancing in and around the pool, we will not be placing chairs on the deck.  Please relax after your swim in the grassy areas.
  • Lastly, we want to reiterate the importance of social distancing and the wearing of face masks as we transition.  Face masks are required upon entering and exiting the facility, and when proper social distance cannot be maintained on the grounds.  We are excited to be able to offer wider and more open access to the pool and grounds under Phase 3, but it's very important that everyone consider their safety and the safety of others and our community as we go through this together.

Thank you again for your support of Woodley Pool.
