We are busy getting the pool ready for the coming season. The pool opens on Saturday, May 27th at 10 A.M. There are several changes for 2017:

  • We have increased the operating hours during the pre-season
  • We have eliminated post-season hours. The pool will have regular summer hours from June 16th through the Labor Day holiday
  • An increase in guest fees (first time in decades) from $1 to $2 per guest during the week and $2 to $4 per guest on weekends and holidays
  • The NMC Board of Directors has adopted interim rules for pool parties held during regular operating hours.

We will be using the same pool pass system as last year. The pass you used last year is still valid. If you are a new resident or have lost or misplaced your pass, we will be issuing pool passes upstairs in the NMC Clubhouse on May 16 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM and May 23 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM. We will also be issuing passes on opening day, May 27th from 10 AM to noon.

If parents want to allow their child between the ages of 9 to 15 to use the pool unaccompanied by an adult, the child can be issued a pool pass if he/she satisfactorily completes the basic swim test and has a Pool Access Permission and Liability Waiver form signed by their parents. The Pool Access Permission and Liability Waiver form must be on file with the lifeguard staff and the NMC administrator. Children 8 and under will not be issued access passes. They must be accompanied to the pool by their parent or a responsible adult at least 16 years old. The Pool Access Permission and Liability Waiver forms will also be available at the clubhouse. If you have any questions, please contact Jim Denny at 301-340-0288 or nmcadministrator@newmarkcommons.net.
