Burke Centre Pool Membership Registration 2023
Step-by-Step Guide


 What Do I Need to Present to Lifeguards to Enter the Pool After Purchasing My Membership?

Nothing! To enter the pool, simply provide your name or phone number to the lifeguard at the pool check-in desk. They will check your photo, make sure that you have been validated and then check you in. Each member must have a valid membership in order to gain access to the pool. If you created a PIN for your account, you will be prompted to enter your PIN before finishing the check-in process. *There may be instances where the lifeguards may request to see your valid account from your phone or a purchase confirmation email due to internet outages in the area, but cases like these will be rare.*

Pool Calendar 2023 (updated 8/15/23)

Special Notice re: Pool Hours, effective 8/21/23: Atlantic Pool Service, Inc. ("Atlantic") has enough lifeguard staff to operate the five Burke Centre pools during normal operating hours through August 20, 2023.  During the time period of August 21 to September 4, there will only be enough staff available to operate the Commons, Landings, Oaks, and Woods pools from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm on Fairfax County public school days, which begin on August 21, 2023 (the Oaks pool will close at 7:00 pm due to the lack of underwater lights in the pool).  Atlantic will be able to continue operating these pools during normal hours on non-school days during the period from August 21 to Labor Day. Atlantic anticipates being able to continue operating the Ponds pool during its normal hours of 10:00 am to 8:00 pm.

Atlantic is working to find additional staff members, but there is an incredible lack of labor available since most college-aged lifeguards have left for college, and Fairfax County Schools begins classes on August 21. Fairfax County High Schools do not release students until 2:55 pm daily.  This prevents the lifeguards from arriving at the pools by the normal opening time of 3:00 pm. during Public School days.  

(Our situation this year is not dissimilar from the last 2 years. Atlantic also had agreed to open the four pools from 4 pm to 8 pm instead of 3 pm to 7 pm in 2021 and 2022.)
