so you want to do some swimmin'
The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Big Pines is physically connected to the Sam Birmingham Pool, but owned by the city of Marshall. People often think its ours. It only makes sense that we help run it. This summer, the Club negotiated a deal with the city where we will handle all the programming.
Weekends: 12:00-2:00p; 2:00-4:00p; 4:00-6:00p
After each session, the pool will be cleared of swimmers. Once everyone is out, the next session will begin and will be another $2 per person.
The pool will be available for parties. The Club
offers Premium and Non-Premium Times.
"Premium times" are considered times that force the pool to be closed during public swim times. The cost for Premium time is $160 for the first hour for up to 50 people. For each additional 25 people, please add $50 per hour. Each hour thereafter is $50.
Non-Premium Times are either after public swim has closed (6pm-8pm), before the pool opens for public swim on Saturdays (9-11:30am), or on Sundays. The cost for Non-Premium time is $100 for the first hour for up to 50 people. For each additional 25 people, please add $25 per hour. Each hour thereafter is $25.
For more details, or to book a party, please contact the Club. To officially book a party, payments have to be made at a minimum of 48-hours in advance and then confirming is only guaranteed based on lifeguard availability - the sooner we have a confirmed payment, the sooner we will begin to ask our lifeguards. No party is guaranteed until the staff has confirmed that lifeguards are available. All parties must be paid in advance. Lifeguards cannot accept payment.
*Pool weather policy: Occasionally
there will be a need to close the outdoor pool because
of weather conditions. The following is a list of
conditions that would cause our facility to close and
the procedure to follow regarding these situations:
Thunder/Lightning. If there is any
lightning or thunder, the pool will be cleared and a 30
minute timer will begin. Patrons will clear the pool and
can re-enter after 30 minutes. If the lightning or
thunder occurs again within the 30 minutes, the timer
will restart. After three series of lightning, the pool
will close for the day. There will be no refund for any
swim opportunities that were cancelled due to
weather/safety of our customers.
Fog and Heavy Rain. Heavy rain and fog. In the case of heavy rain, or fog it is the discretion of the head lifeguard to determine visibility. If the bottom of the pool cannot be easily seen, the pool needs to be cleared for 30 minutes or until visibility is restored. There will be no refund for any swim opportunities that were cancelled due to weather/safety of our customers.
