Rules and Regulations

General Policies

The MRAC is a facility operating for the benefit of Moab and Grand County community patrons. We hope that partons of the facility will join the staff in promoting a pleasant recreational environment. Patrons are asked to use mature judgment in choosing actions, clothing, and language and be sensitive to the message they deliver to other patrons. Patrons should respect the rights of others and are encouraged to display good sportsmanship so that participation in all activities is enjoyable and safe. The behavior of a patron must not disrupt the experience of others. All problems should be reported immediately to MRAC staff on duty.

Rules and policies are posted and/or distributed to all MRAC users. The authority to enforce these policies is vested in the MRAC staff and administrative personnel responsible for facilities and programs. Violations of rules, malicious use or defacing of property, solicitation, verbal abuse, or other violations of the MRAC will not be tolerated. The MRAC administrative staff reserves the right to make discretionary adjustment to disciplinary action depending on the circumstances which may include suspension or revoking patron privileges. Patron disciplinary policies will be enforced.

Access to the Center

Upon entering the MRAC, all patrons 3 years and older are required to check in at the Front Desk and have their membership ID card scanned in order to gain admittance. A daily pass or guest pass can be purchased for those who do not have an annual membership. All members are required to have their membership ID card or other form of ID (receipt or hand stamp) available to show any MRAC staff member at all times while in the MRAC.

Age Restrictions

Children under the age of 6 must be directly supervised, at all times, by an individual 14 years or older unless participating in a MRAC program. Children between the ages of 6 and 10 must be appropriately supervised by an individual 14 years or older unless participating in a MRAC program. The supervising individual may not leave the facility. Children over the age of 10 may enter the facility independently. Any individual who lacks the ability to swim the width of the pool may not enter water above their chest.

Member Guests

Members are required to enter and exit the facility with all guests signed in under their membership. Guests are expected to follow all MRAC rules and regulations. Disciplinary procedures will be enforced in the same manner as for membership patrons. If discipline is necessary for a guest of the facility because of a violation that typically results in ejection from the facility and/or suspension, the member will be held responsible and will serve the penalty enforced. In other words, if a guest exhibits unacceptable conduct that warrants suspension for one week from the MRAC, the member will serve the suspension as well. If a guest loses or damages equipment, the member must pay to replace the lost or damaged equipment. In addition, the member's guest privileges may be revoked or suspended.

Swim Diapers

UTAH LAW REQUIRES that children under 3 years of age and children who are not toilet-trained wear swim diapers AND plastic pants. Please, no exceptions. When the pool has to be shut down for treatment following an "accident" it deprives everyone of the use of the pool. This is particularly inconvenient when there is only one pool in use! Please respect other users and properly prepare your child for swimming.

Unacceptable Conduct

Discipline is necessary when any patron exhibits unacceptable conduct. Some examples of unacceptable conduct are:

  • Abuse or intentional misuse of MRAC equipment and properties
  • Abusive or foul language
  • Activity inappropriate for a family oriented public facility
  • Disregarding MRAC rules and policies
  • Engaging in dangerous activity
  • Fighting or threatening harm to others
  • Lack of respect for the MRAC staff; i.e., ignored request, intimidation, threats, physical threats, etc.
  • Lack of respect for other members and/or patrons
  • Misuse of an MRAC membership ID card
  • Non-payment of MRAC membership, program or service fees
  • Sexual harassment
  • Solicitation
  • Theft
  • Use of alcohol, non-prescription drugs, tobacco
  • Vandalism

Patron Suspension

Suspension for unacceptable conduct will be decided by MRAC Managment on a case-by-case basis. The nature and seriousness of the offense will determine the suspension. Refunds will not be granted for suspensions due to disciplinary problems.
