Pool ID FAQ

Everyone who enters the pool must be a current eligible OXH resident and have a valid Pool ID.
Q. What is an OXH Pool ID?

A Pool ID is a number assigned by the OXH Pool Committee for each address in OXH. Associated with a Pool ID # is a color photo of each resident at that address who is allowed access to the OXH pool without a parent (typically people age 10 and up). Our Pool ID System allows us to maintain pool access for residents while restricting access for non-residents.

Q. Who can get a Pool ID?

A resident can get a Pool ID created by the Pool Committee as long as they live in OXH and have paid their dues. A renter who is listed as the renter with Omega and whose owners are up to date with their HOA dues, may also obtain a Pool ID. (Note: Brampton Moors apartment renters are not given access to the OXH Pool on Fallsworth Drive, except as guests of OXH residents).

Q. Does a Pool ID expire?

A Pool ID is valid as long as you are a resident with dues paid up to date. A Pool ID becomes invalid and is therefore removed from the Pool ID System when a resident moves out of OXH, becomes delinquent on their Homeowner’s Association (HOA) dues, or has their Pool privileges revoked due to pool rule violations (example of a Pool Rule violation that can result in revocation of a Pool ID includes distracting/talking to a lifeguard while he/she is on the guard stand, unless it is an emergency).

Q. My family had an OXH Pool ID# from a past summer, may we still use that #?

If you still live in OXH, are current on your HOA dues, and no relevant changes have occurred in your household, then yes, you may still use that #. Just sign-in at the pool using your existing OXH Pool ID #. You are expected to sign in each time you visit the pool. Please plan ahead and know your ID# before you go to the pool. Lifeguards do not have a way to look up your number for you.

Q. I forgot my Pool ID#, can I still get into the pool if a lifeguard looks it up?

No. If a Pool Member has forgotten their Pool ID#, he/she may ask to be reminded of it anytime by emailing the Oxxford Hunt Pool Committee (please provide name and OXH address in the email). The Pool Committee will do their best to respond within 24-48 hours of the request. Remember, No ID# = No Access, even with a NC Driver License and an OXH address. Please do not take any frustrations out on our lifeguards. They do not have a way to look up your ID for you. Please plan ahead and know your ID# before you go to the pool.

Q. I have a Pool ID#, but some changes need to be made to it.

If you have a Pool ID needing to be changed, you will need to attend a Pool ID Session to make the changes. Bring an updated Pool ID Form, your NC Driver License, and anyone needing to be photographed to the Pool ID Session (see the OXH website calendar for dates). Lifeguards cannot make changes to Pool IDs. All Pool ID information is managed by the Pool Committee. Email the Oxxford Hunt Pool Committee.

Q. I am a renter in OXH, can I get an OXH Pool ID?

Yes. If you are a renter in OXH, you may obtain a Pool ID after the homeowner has listed you as their current renter with Omega Homeowner’s Association (HOA). Call Omega for more information. If you are the homeowner, it is your responsibility to notify Omega of the names of your renters so they may obtain a Pool ID. If you are the homeowner and you do not live in OXH, then you do not have pool privileges at the OXH Pool. Once Omega has a renter’s name on file, the renter may bring a Pool ID Form, their NC Driver License with OXH address, and anyone needing to be photographed to a Pool ID Session (see the OXH website calendar for dates). If you are new to OXH and you cannot attend a scheduled Pool ID Session, email the Oxxford Hunt Pool Committee to see if other arrangements can be made.

Q. Can a lifeguard create a Pool ID for me?

No. Lifeguards cannot create Pool IDs or make changes to Pool IDs. All Pool ID information is managed by the Pool Committee. Please do not drop off Pool ID Forms or photos at the pool or ask the lifeguards to give it to the Pool Committee. To have your Pool ID made or to have changes made, bring a Pool ID Form, your NC Driver License with OXH address, and anyone needing to be photographed to a Pool ID Session (see the OXH website calendar for dates). If you are new to OXH and you cannot attend a scheduled Pool ID Session, email the Oxxford Hunt Pool Committee to see if other arrangements can be made.

Q. Are there “Babysitter Passes” or “Guest Passes”?

Babysitter/Guest Passes are no longer offered. A resident may bring up to five guests for $5 per guest per day on weekends (Friday-Sunday), holidays, or pool parties, or for free during regular weekdays (Monday-Thursday). Residents may obtain a Special Case Pool ID  for a long term visitor or a care provider who will be coming to the pool without the resident (for example, a parent who lives outside of OXH, but who will bring his/her OXH children under age 10 to the pool). For more information about Special Case Pool IDs, please refer to the Pool Rules (PDF) or email the Oxxford Hunt Pool Committee (please provide your name and OXH address).

Q. I have read the Pool Rules and the FAQ, but I still have a question.

For additional questions, please email the Oxxford Hunt Pool Committee (please provide your name and OXH address). Messages to this address will receive an automated reply, but the Pool Committee volunteers will make every effort to reply within 24-48 hours. For most issues, this process will typically result in a better/more definitive answer than asking a lifeguard.

Please do not drop off Pool ID Forms or photos at the pool or ask the lifeguards to give it to the Pool Committee. Please do not try to enter the pool without a Pool ID on file at the pool. The lifeguards on duty cannot make a Pool ID for you. They are not authorized to make exceptions and therefore will not be able to allow you entry. 

The Pool Committee is an all volunteer group that goes to considerable lengths to get information out to the community so all can be promptly informed of news and events concerning the OXH Pool.  Residents are welcome to become members of the Pool Committee, another OXH Committee, or join the monthly meeting of the OXH Board of Directors (see the OXH website calendar for dates).
