All persons shall use the pool and its facilities at their own risk. FFSC will not be responsible for any accident or injury, or loss or damage to person or property.
The club staff has been given full authority by the Board to enforce these rules and are authorized to use their own discretion in matters relating to the safety and conduct of the membership and guests. The club staff has full authority to discipline children if they break club rules. The club reserves the right to restrict or revoke the privileges of the members or guests violating the above rules within the scope of the Bylaws.
