Pools

  • Please read through the Policies and Procedures and become familiar with them before visiting the club.  You can find the Policies and Procedures here.  POLICIES AND PROCEDURES.
  • Pool Hours can change throughout the summer due to weather and events at the club.  Always check the website home page banner or call the pool if the weather is questionable.
  • The swim team, dive team, and lap swimmers  have reserved lanes at certain hours (there are always lap lanes available).  Other than that, everyone else must share the pools.  If there is a concern, please bring it to the attention of the guards and don’t try to address it yourself.
  • During the off-season, the Indoor Pool is closed every weekday from 3:30-5:30 for Machine Aquatics. Please see our Hours of Operations HERE.
  • During summer hours, guards will call break for anyone under the age of 14 at the top of each hour, and they must break for 15 minutes.
  • All children 8 and under must have passed an evaluation by a guard in order to swim alone in the big pool.
    • Children under 8 years old will be admitted to the pool grounds only when they are accompanied by a responsible person at least 14 years old.

Extended Season

We are very fortunate to be able to extend the summer season if the weather is nice.  We open our Outdoor Pools the Memorial Day weekend, and we close the Outdoor Pools around the first week of October, depending on weather and member demand.  Members are allowed to bring guests to the pool with them, (up to 10 per day), with the purchase of guest passes.  If you want to bring more than 10 guests, you must rent a space with the Facility Rental Form.

We use email to communicate social events and updates from the club.  Make sure we have your correct email address and you are receiving the emails.

The Calendars for the respective events at the pool are on their own pages and you can look on the main calendar and click on view categories to limit the view to what you want to view.   You can find this info on the calendar:

Swim –

Calling all Tuckahoe Families! Now that summer is quickly approaching, we can start to think about the fun things our families can do this summer at Tuckahoe.

Why not try out for the Tuckahoe Swim Team?

The Tuckahoe Tigers Swim Team offers great opportunities for children ages 5-18 to improve their swimming skills, their overall physical fitness

and to have FUN! It is wonderful to watch kids of all ages cheer and support one another in exciting swim and social events from Monday night

swim meets, to Swim Team late night skits and dancing at the Tuckahoe Ball. To get in touch with the Team Representative drop a note to  Tuckahoeswimteam@gmail.com

Dive –
Tuckahoe is continuing to offer dive practices with great coaches during the off season.  We’ve designed our practices for a range of divers – everyone from kids who want to give diving a try to divers wanting to learn new skills between the summer seasons to those getting ready for high school tryouts. All divers are welcome – all experience levels – Tuckahoe members and non-members alike!  In response to feedback, we have modified and added practice times/dates to make it more convenient for your schedules.  All scheduling and payments are online allowing registration, coach availability, and equipment availability to update in real time.  To get in touch with a Team Representative drop a note to tuckahoediveteam@gmail.com

Membership Renewal

Members renew their memberships each year.  In March of each year, the Membership Chair will email all members when the renewal period opens.  You will log in and pay the dues by the deadline of April 30th.  Renewals received after the deadline will have an automatic $100 late fee added to their member account,  and there is a deadline of _____________ for the account to be inactivated and closed.    Failure to renew your membership could result in having to pay the initiation fee again and go back on the wait list.  Members can also opt to place their membership on hold and should be in touch with the Membership Director to discuss their situation (moving, work relocation, etc.).    Questions about membership should be sent to membership@tuckahoe.net.

See you on deck!
