GMSC Summer 2023 – What you need to know
We want to you have a blast this summer, so let’s remember we are a community. GMSC Members + Lifeguards/Staff + Guests + Pool neighbors = Pool Community. Let’s keep everyone safe and healthy while at the pool. Please treat EVERYONE at GMSC with respect.
Pool Hours: 11am – 8pm (most days)
Please check the Events calendar and Pool Hours for changes to this schedule.
Swim team: Swim meets for The Gators are scheduled throughout the summer at our pool and other area swim club pools, and are generally held on Saturday mornings from 6 am to 12 pm or Wednesday evenings starting around 5:00 pm. The pool is closed to all other members whenever GMSC is hosting a swim meet (on average around 5 times per summer). Please refer to the Events calendar for specific dates when we open late or close early. Please note that the baby pool is closed during all swim meets as well.
Checking in and checking out of the pool
Please stop at the front desk when you arrive or depart the pool so that our staff can check you in and out. We have a new membership management system that will help us monitor usage patterns so that we can properly staff the pool throughout the season. Your support is appreciated!
Yes! We encourage it! Guest passes should be purchased in advance (or via your phone once you arrive at the pool). You can purchase guest passes by logging into our Member Dashboard. Guests will be required to sign a standard waiver. We will accept cash and cards onsite if you forget to purchase ahead of time.
For large gatherings, please inquire about setting up a party so that life guards will be properly staffed and everyone is safe. Thank you.

Lightning > Why did the guards clear the pool?
Our guards are trained to monitor an application that confirms lightning sightings and its distance from the pool. When appropriate, the guards will clear the pool for 30 minutes. This is standard procedure. While it is disappointing to go to – or be at – the pool during a lightning watch, safety is our priority. Please respect our guards authority to make this decision and encourage your children to quickly clear the baby and main pools, when needed.
For the 2023 season, we encourage you to purchase Snack Shack credit via your member account, making it easy to manage your balance and monitor spending throughout the season! The Snack Shack will still accept cash or credit cards for purchases. To purchase snack shack credit go to Snack Shack Credit
Generally, our lifeguards will blow the whistle at 1PM, 3PM, and 5PM each day in order to clear the pool for 15 minutes for “Adult Swim.” This encourages kids to hit the restrooms, reapply sunscreen, enjoy the swing set, snack shack treats, and other features at GMSC while adults get some quiet time in the pool.
Please use the grills! Feel free to bring your own tools or use the GMSC tools for grilling. Please wipe down the tools and turn off the grill after use.
Yes, alcoholic beverages are permitted per GMSC rules. No glass bottles, drink in moderation, 21+, recycle and be responsible. GMSC Board and Staff reserve the right to refuse this option at any time.
Yes. Please ask the front desk attendants for the password.
Remember, our lifeguards are here to keep you + your children safe. Pool rules are for everyone’s safety.
GMSC staff is authorized to remove any guests behaving in a manner that jeopardizes safety or directly impedes the enjoyment of the pool for other members. Not following lifeguard instruction is grounds for removal from the pool.
