Additional Explanation of rules:

Membership
Clarification of Membership from bylaws:

Title-holder(s) of the home are the official members.   Title-holder is defined as the ‘Owner’ as listed by the Fulton County Assessor’s office.

Use of facilities:  

  1. Residents of home:  all official residents of the home may access the facilities.  All residents of each home must be registered by the Owner with the Secretary when the dues invoice is paid or by direct contact with the Secretary.
  2. Occupants who are not Owners:  Owner can decide who gets access (Owner or Occupant – but NOT both).
  3. Families of owners who do not live in neighborhood may not have regular access to the facilities but can join as outside members.  Regular access is defined as access not considered ‘guest access’ outlined below:
  4. Guests:  Members in good standing may bring guests to the facilities no more than 2 times per week for the same guest(s).    Special access arrangements for out-of-town or long-term guests may be made with the board. 
  5. Pool Parties - advanced notice must be given to the board - and the pool management company BY the board - to ensure that there are enough lifeguards to cover large pool parties with large amounts of children. If additional lifeguards are required for a party at the pool, a fee will apply to cover the cost of the extra lifeguards. Generally, this will be determined by the impact of outside children attending the party (vs. member children who may already have been at the pool on a normal basis).
  6. Members cannot pay lifeguards to stay late or to work at the facility for any reason unless the board and pool management company approve the event.

Woodfield Waves Swim Team

One of Woodfield's goals for our community is to give our members social and physical activities, community interaction, and the development of sportsmanship, team spirit and sense of community. Our award-winning swim team, the Woodfield Waves Swim Team provides affordable swimming lessons available for all experience levels in private or group settings.

Woodfield has a great summer swim team, the Woodfield Waves. We are a part of the North Atlanta Swim Association (NASA). Our team includes boys and girls ages 4 - 18. Our season usually starts in mid May and runs until early July. The team is divided into different age groups. The youngest (6 and under) swim backstroke and freestyle. All the other age groups swim backstroke, freestyle, breaststroke and butterfly. Children do not have to know how to swim all the strokes to be on the team; we will teach them. Our coaches are certified in life-saving techniques by the American Red Cross Water & Safety Organization.
