Dear Rockbrook Pool Members,

On behalf of the Board of Directors, we welcome you and your family to the 2022 Rockbrook Pool Season. The pool will open Friday, May 27, 2022 at 1:00 p.m. We are excited about the 2022 season! Lap swimming and our Division A Champion Swim Team should be offered again this summer.

Thankfully, COVID-19 conditions show better results and do not require pool limitations as we start the season. Please be aware that our operations are dictated by city, state, and federal requirements, and this could change at their discretion. Please know, these plans could change by opening day.

As always, we continue to make improvements to the pool and grounds so that Rockbrook Pool remains a fun family atmosphere and a pool we are all proud to call our own.

  • You’ll be happy to know that the boiler was replaced over the winter so on the cooler days your pool will welcome you warmly!
  • New entry stairs are scheduled to be installed off Woodridge Lane leading to the main pool entrance. Drawings have been submitted to the city and work will begin as soon as approval is given.
  • New toilet partitions for the Women’s restroom have been ordered and will be installed early in the season!

Please be sure to read this entire letter for information.

Membership Details

ACTIVE – All member dues will be processed through ACTIVE, the payment gateway on the Rockbrook Pool website membership tab (or the links above). If you are a returning member, your login information from last year should still be valid. New members will need to create a new account. In order to avoid a $25 late fee, all 2022 memberships must be paid by noon on Monday, May 17, 2022.

We have kept the Individual/Duo Membership. For single or couples without kids (residing at the same residence), a less expensive option than the Family Membership is now available.

Rockbrook pool is acting to engage and retain talented lifeguards continuing our safe and fun pool experience. To do this, we are increasing our lifeguard wages resulting in membership cost increases this year. There will be no Trial Membership option again this year.

Membership costs are:

$275 + $85 Maintenance Fee Individual/Duo

$340 + $85 Maintenance Fee Family

$275 + 0 Maintenance Fee Senior/Single

$340 + $85 Maintenance Fee Grandparent Family

$40 Nanny

Everyone will be required to sign in to gain entry to the pool. We ask that you and your family memorize your bond number so your account is easily accessed upon your arrival. At this time, guests are welcome with members for $5 per person, per visit.

Annual Member Meeting

The annual Members Meeting will be held on Thursday, April 21st at 7:00p via Zoom. You can join the meeting using this link. Please email if you are unable to attend but have a suggestion for pool operations.

We are looking for members to work with the Board with a passion to serve their community and the amazing legacy of Rockbrook Pool. If you have experience or expertise in graphic design, web design, fundraising, or event planning, we would love to hear from you! If you are interested in joining a committee, please send an email with your interest. The pool is well organized, and it is a great experience!

Bond

If you wish to relinquish your bond, please notify the pool in writing/email by Monday, May 23, 2022. Rockbrook Pool currently has a waitlist for potential new members. Because of this, if you do not provide notification of your intent by May 23, 2022, your bond will be forfeited

Rules and Regulations

It is very important that you review the pool’s rules and regulations as well as go over them with any family members who will be enjoying the pool. Following the rules and regulations is respectful to the guards and members of the pool and is expected behavior.

Gazebo and/or Pool Rental

You may want to start thinking of reserving the Gazebo for a birthday party, special event, or family function. If you are planning a larger event (family reunion, sweet sixteen, etc.), members can rent the entire pool. Email to reserve your date and time as summer is right around the corner! Pricing and details can be found here. Please be sure to review the expectations for renting the gazebo so all members can enjoy this area.

Membership Recruitment

Rockbrook Pool continues to be the place for summer fun. As you spread the word about membership opportunities to your friends and family, please be aware that we currently have a considerable waitlist.

Communications

Members can sign-up to receive email announcements here. Please let us know if you are not receiving emails from the pool so we can troubleshoot. We do not want any of our members missing information! As stated before, we will also be posting on Facebook and Instagram when important announcements need to be made.

The pool will again use Remind as a tool to communicate through texting, emailing, or through the Remind App. Many may be familiar with this application as it is a program the Omaha area schools use to communicate with families. Members are able to text “81010” and place @g3cbak in the message line to sign up to receive text announcements about pool activities, early closings, or other important information. Lastly, members may download the Remind App to their smart devices and enter @g3cbak to join the group. As always, we encourage you to visit the website’s events page for a list of activities planned for the summer. We appreciate your time and support.

Rockbrook Division A Swim Team Sneak Peak

Swim team registration is open for 2022! We are waiting for more information from the league and will send out more info once received.

Rockbrook continues to have an amazing swim team experience for our kids! Sneak Peak and registration will be on April 19th from 6:30 – 8:00p at Rockbrook Elementry. A swim team letter will be coming to your email soon with additional details. Please drop by and say hello to coaches and friends. Families are encouraged to attend as there will be opportunities to purchase swimsuits, apparel, goggles, etc. Please complete the following three forms: Registration Form, Meet Intent Form, and Swimmer Release Form.
