Facilities and Operations Update
Safety and theft reminder:
With daylight savings behind us and the holiday season coming into full swing, our lives are busier than ever.
With that, theft in shopping malls and in our clubs tends to rise. Theft can happen in a matter of seconds, and we must all do our part to protect ourselves and our belongings. Please refrain from bringing valuables into the Club or storing any valuables in your locker or your vehicle.
As always, if you see any suspicious activity, please contact a team member immediately. Thank you.
Our Pool and Pool Deck renovation has begun and is scheduled to be completed in early December. Please note that while we enhance the space, our pools will be unavailable until Friday, December 2. Swim lessons and the swim team will still meet at other locations. Please connect with our Aquatics Director Kyle, at Kyle.Flanders@bayclubs.com for more information.
Pool Bar Services
During our Pool Renovation timeframe, we will be hosting all of our Pool Bar menu and drinks indoors at our restaurant upstairs. Come and enjoy all of your favorites from 9:00 am-5:00 pm and then dinner service from 5:00 pm-9:00 pm. We look forward to seeing you!
Member Check In
Members ages 14+ need to check in at the Host Desk with their Bay Club Connect app barcode instead of providing their 4 digit member ID. All members have a designated member ID and need to have their own Bay Club Connect setup for check in and reservation purposes. To get assistance with setting up or logging into the app, please contact email@example.com
Guest Passes and Guest Check In
Friendly reminder that complimentary guest passes accrued January-September of this year will expire on December 31, 2022. Your guest pass balance can be found on the home page of your Bay Club Connect account.
Our guest pass policy allows the same guest to visit up to 12 times per calendar year. Please note, all guests must provide a valid photo ID and be registered via our Digital Guest Waiver at the Host Desk. For guests that are minors, an adult member must authorize and sign our Digital Guest Waiver in person or remotely via our Digital Guest Waiver for minor guests that are authorized to use The Club with a member on your account.

We love our little members and enjoy seeing them having fun using our childcare services! We would like to take the opportunity to remind you of some important childcare policies:
- Advanced reservations are required. We will only accommodate drop-ins if it is safe to do so.
- You can make reservations up to 7 days in advance. Please limit reservations to one visit per day.
- Please arrive promptly at your reservation time. Reservations will be automatically canceled after 15 minutes of the start time and made available to another member.
- Should you no longer require your reservation, please cancel it as soon as possible on Bay Club Connectunder Bookings. This will free up space for another family.
- Pick up your child(ren) promptly at the reservation end time. Use of our childcare services may be suspended for repeated violations.
Reminder: as of November 1st:
- No-shows or reservations canceled less than 24 hours in advance will incur a $25 fee.
Again, we love our Bay Club Families and are looking forward to an amazing holiday season with you all!
