The Stonebridge Ranch Beach Club is located at 6201 Virginia Parkway. It includes an iconic beach and swim lagoon and overlooks beautiful Stonebridge Lake. This original amenity has been serving up family fun for over 30 years! Every summer, residents enjoy cooling off under the shade trees, hosting parties at the rentable pavilions, building sand castles, playing sand volleyball, and launching personal, non-motorized watercraft off the lake dock. The pool is staffed by professional lifeguards during all open hours. Just down the hill, you’ll find our tennis courts.
Click here for a two-page PDF showing the 2021 open dates for both pools (the Beach Club + Aquatic Center). Please note this correction! The Beach Club calendar printed in the April issue of the Stonebridge Ranch News magazine noted an incorrect start time for weekdays between Aug. 12 to Sept. 3. The printed version noted 4 PM, but the correct start time for those days (corrected in the PDf linked above) is 4:30 PM.
We strive to keep at least one pool open each day during pool season. Each pool is closed one day per week for cleaning. On rainy days when thunder and/or lightening are present, the lifeguards call a thirty-minute safety break and then reassess the situation.
Occasionally following very heavy rains, if the lifeguards can’t see the bottom of the pool due to sand runoff from the beach, we must close the Beach Club to protect swimmer safety. In such cases, we will post the Beach Club closure to the homepage of this website and the official SRCA Facebook group.
- Homeowners and their household members may enter the pool gates (and do so free of charge) if their SRCA account is in good standing. To be in “good standing” means you have an account balance less than $50.
- To enter the pool gates, Stonebridge Ranch homeowners and each of their household members (ages 3+) must provide proof of residency by presenting a valid form of Stonebridge Ranch Photo ID. (Note that children age 0-11 cannot enter the pool gates without a parent or designated guardian who is at least 18 years of age.)
- If a property owner wishes to transfer amenity privileges to a tenant, both the landlord and tenant must fill out the Transfer of Privileges Form. The form also requires an annual $100 processing fee. The association does not mediate which party pays the fee, nor do we offer a prorated fee based on when you turn in your form. You can download the form via the link above, request an emailed copy via firstname.lastname@example.org, or stop by the office (6201 Virginia Parkway, M-F 8:30 AM to 5 PM) to pick one up.
- Parents need to replace the photo ID card for a growing child about every three years, as the child’s appearance changes. There is no fee for replacing photo IDs for growing children. However, you must provide the documentation noted here each time you replace a child’s photo ID.
- To replace lost photo ID cards, the association charges a $5 fee. The fee is payable at the office by cash, check, or money order. (We do not accept credit cards.)
BRINGING NON-RESIDENT GUESTS
- On non-holidays during the 2021 season, each household in good standing may bring up to eight (8) guests to either pool. On recognized pool holidays (Memorial Day, July 4th, Stonebridge Ranch Day on Sept. 18, and Labor Day), each household may bring up to three (3) guests. Note: the number of guests permitted to the pool is subject to change depending on state-mandated headcount capacities related to COVID-19.
- Each guest (age 3+) must pay a fee at the pool gates to enter. We accept cash, checks and money orders. We appreciate exact cash, and we do not make change for bills higher than $20. The cost for ages 3-49 is $5. For seniors age 50+, the cost is $1.
- Homeowners and tenants who have obtained a Transfer of Privileges may purchase a Guest Punch Card for $15 at the pool gates. When in the presence of a resident, this punch card permits pool admission to a single guest for five (5) visits. (It may not be used by multiple people for a visit on a single day.)
COMPLIMENTARY GUEST CARD
Each Stonebridge Ranch household may obtain one (1) Complimentary Guest Card, good for five (5) free guest pool visits during the 2021 pool season. Use your card in any combination, for guests of any ages, to achieve your five (5) free guest pool visits.
The card may be used during non-holiday, non-event pool hours only. It may not be used on Memorial Day, July 4th, Stonebridge Ranch Day (Sept. 18), or Labor Day, nor to enter SRCA social events at either pool (Family Beach Parties, Teen Splash Hop, etc.). There is one exception to the social event rule (new this year): you may use the card for guest visits to the 2021 Evening on the Veranda events.
To obtain the card and present it for use at the two pools owned by the Stonebridge Ranch Community Association (SRCA), you must have an account balance less than $50. You can download the Complimentary Guest Card Form here, or fill it out in person at the office. Once we’ve processed your form, you must pick your card up in person at the office.
You may not share your card with another Stonebridge Ranch household. Your card will have your Stonebridge Ranch address on it. A member of your household must present it at the time of use at the pool gate along with a valid form of Stonebridge Ranch ID. Cards shared fraudulently between households will be forfeited.
Cards cannot be replaced if lost or stolen.
You will surrender your card to the lifeguards at the pool gate upon your fifth (5th) use. Each use will be tracked by the lifeguards with a “punch” on the card.
Renting tenants may obtain a card only after completing a Transfer of Privileges with their leasing homeowner.

LAKE ACCESS & PADDLE BOAT RENTAL
During Beach Club open hours, Stonebridge Ranch residents age 18+ may rent association-owned paddleboats and watercraft on Stonebridge Ranch Lake. The rental fee is $2 per 30 minutes for paddleboats and $5 per 30 minutes for the sailboat or aqua cycle. You also need to sign a waiver provided by the lifeguards at the main pool gate. Next, you’ll visit the lifeguards at the pier gate to put on the provided life jackets. Children age 0-11 must be accompanied on the watercraft by someone age 18 or older. You may use the sailboat only if you have previous sailing experience.
Stonebridge Ranch residents are also permitted to launch their own personal watercraft at no charge from the pier. You may do so only during open Beach Club hours when the lifeguards are on duty.* First, use your Stonebridge Ranch ID to enter the main Beach Club gate and alert the lifeguards to your request. They can help you access the driveway connected to the pier. The driveway is for loading and unloading only. You’ll need to sign a waiver at the main Beach Club gate to access the driveway and pier and launch your own craft.
*You may see watercraft on the lake during non-open pool hours. This is because residents with lakefront property are permitted by their village governing documents to launch their watercraft at any time on the lake.
