Certificate of Excellence For Pool Maintenance

The VRWC pool for a third year in a row was recognized by the Metro Public Health Department with a certificate of excellence for pool maintenance. Only 21 pools out of over 860 in Nashville receive this recognition for cleanliness. Please join us at the VRWC in celebrating this accomplishment and congratulation our staff lead by Coordinator Kit Wilson. GREAT JOB AQUATIC STAFF!


As we enter storm and inclement weather season, we would like to remind our patrons of our inclement weather policies and procedures. Once a lifeguard sees lightning and/or hears thunder, the pool is cleared immediately. Everyone must be completely out of the water and away from the glass windows. The pool is to remain clear until there is no longer a threat of imminent danger. Typically this closing will last a minimum of 30 minutes dependent on current weather conditions. The Facility Supervisor will have a weather radar pulled up to assist and provide warnings as necessary.

Tornado Watch – Although the actual conditions in the area may not be presently threatening, there is a strong chance of dangerous winds, maybe a tornado. When the facility supervisor or a radio announcement has been made, the lifeguard is prepared to clear the pool if necessary.

Tornado Warning- If a tornado warning has been issued, the aquatic staff immediately instructs all patrons to clear the pool and seek the designated shelter areas immediately. Shelter areas are located in the lower corridors (hallway to men’s and women’s locker rooms.) Patrons may leave the building if they choose, but are strongly advised to seek immediate shelter within the Vanderbilt Recreation and Wellness Center.

Should you have questions regarding this or any policies or issues with the pool please contact Frank Harrison. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
