The Barrington Community Pool is open each year from Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day Weekend. The telephone number at the pool is (703) 690-7869. Each season, early closures occur for a number of community events. Early closures due to Barrington Blue Fins evening home swim meets and special events will be posted on the pool's community bulletin board and the Community Calendar as information becomes available.
Membership in the Barrington Community Pool is limited to community residents. All members and Member Residences must agree to the pool rules prior to use of any of the Barrington Community Pool Facilities. Please review the 2023 Barrington Pool Rules for community residence requirements.

BARRINGTON BLUE FINS
The Barrington Blue Fins Swim Team is a summer swim program offering great coaching, fun social events, and a full season of swim meets for swimmers in the Barrington community. The team is devoted to providing a positive and memorable experience for the swimmers and their families. In addition to teaching proper swimming skills, we aim to develop good sportsmanship, team spirit, self-discipline, friendship, respect and healthy minds/bodies. It is a family activity that helps create a connection to other families in the Barrington community.
No experience is required to be a Barrington Blue Fin. For safety reasons, kids must be comfortable in the water and excited to swim unassisted on their own across the pool. Criteria coaches use include: can a child swim across the pool, float on their back, and tread water? The coaching staff will be making these assessments the first two weeks of practice.
All Barrington residents are eligible for pool membership as long as the household is in good standing with the Barrington HOA (up-to-date on HOA fees).
Process to Register:
Review the 2023 Barrington Pool Rules. Please note the changes to the pool rules this year surrounding Pause breaks and ages for unaccompanied minors.
Collect digital pictures for all members of your household. Please note, family members that do not live in your home will be considered guests and should not be submitted with your registration.
Once your registration is received, it will be processed by the Barrington Pool Committee. After it is processed into the system, you will receive an electronic pass through email that can be loaded into the wallet option available for your phone. This epass will be scanned each time you come to the pool and confirmed by the guard on duty at the sign-in desk.
