Friendly Reminder to Treat the SRA Campus and Clubhouse with Respect!

  • No drop offs for children under 10 years old. (This applies to the whole SRA campus.)
  • Please ask children to be respectful of our SRA office staff, snackbar staff, and lifeguards.
  • Children of all ages in the clubhouse: please pick up after yourself. Keep the doors and windows closed – no need to Air Condition the outdoors! And, if you happen to spill food or beverage in the game room, please also clean up! (parents, you can help, especially for your young ones.)
  • Parents of older children – please make sure they know the rules!
  • Finally, for many reasons, at no time should children be in the snack bar kitchen. If families would like to use the silver community refrigerator for special events, it must be accessed only by adults. THANK YOU!
