FCCSA Amenities Philosophy

Aquatic Center and Neighborhood Pools

FCCSA operates 10 neighborhood pools and the Aquatic Center fitness pool. Summer pool hours are published in the First Colony Parks & Recreation Summer Guide in mid-April and are posted on the website.

The Aquatic Center fitness pool, The Lakes Pool and Austin Park pool are operated as  “swim at your own risk” pools.

Pool tags: Every member is required to show their pool tags upon arrival of each facility (except Aquatic Center fitness pool, The Lakes pool and Austin Park pool). The recreational fee for the tags is included in your yearly assessment. Townhomes in the Association do not pay the recreational fee. If the member owning a townhome wishes to receive pool tags for the current year, the member may pay the recreational fee for the year. Members must submit a $100.00 refundable deposit (check only) to receive the Aquatic Center pool card and sign a liability form. The cost for a “swim at your own risk” Austin Park pool key card is $10.00 (check only) which is non-refundable. A signed liability form is also required.

Pool tags are available at the FCCSA office. They will be available starting April 27, 2020.  To receive a pool tag bring are your driver’s license or a current utility bill if your driver’s license does not show your current address as proof of residency. There is a maximum of four (4) pool tags per household. Each pool tag admits one (1) member and one (1) guest or family member (2 people per tag). The 4 tags allow up to 8 people in the pool facility during operating hours. If you are a renter, please bring your lease agreement also.

During the swim season, the lifeguards will call a ten minute break every hour. The safety breaks include both children and adults exiting the pool.

To provide further service to the Community, First Colony Community Services Association offers an after-hours emergency phone line to report any emergencies that occur during non-business hours. If you notice an emergency situation (that falls under the control of FCCSA) when the FCCSA office is not open, you can call or text (281) 705-3051 and leave a message explaining the emergency and a contact number where you can be reached if a follow up is needed. This after-hours line should not be used for police, fire or emergency medical needs.

***Private swim lessons or any for profit activities are not allowed at the pool without authorization from FCCSA.***
