2. How do I go about registering a boat to use on the Association lakes?
All residents wanting to register a boat to use on the Association lakes must provide the proper insurance documents, have a boat inspection, fill out registration papers, and pay a registration fee of $50 per boat and a storage fee of $100 per storage slip (if the resident wants to store the boat at one of the Beach Clubs).
The required insurance documents must contain the following:
Certificate of Insurance & Additional Insured Endorsement Page: A valid certificate of insurance and additional insured endorsement page must be on file with the Recreation Department. The certificate of insurance and additional insured endorsement page must meet the following requirements:
a) Naming Woodbridge Village Association as additionally insured.

1. $300,000.00 Combined Single Limit.
2. $300,000.00 Liability and $25,000.00 Property Damage.
3. Why do the lifeguards call Adult Swim?
Adult swim is called the last 10 minutes of each hour in order to give both the lifeguards and children a rest break. This rest break also encourages children to visit the restroom, thereby resulting in less pool and lagoon closures due to contamination. Lifeguards will also rotate stations at this time. Research has shown that by rotating stations, lifeguards are fresher and more effective while conducting water surveillance.
4. How do I check out a boat at the docks?
In order to check out a boat at the docks, residents must purchase a boat pass at the Association office with either a check or credit card. There are two different boat passes: a $10.00 boat pass and a $30.00 boat pass. The $10.00 boat pass is good for 4 half-hour boat rides. The $30.00 boat pass is good for 16 half-hour rides. The resident's name and key number are on it. The lifeguard punches out one half-hour and holds the boat pass until the resident returns. Boat passes do not expire.
Boat passes can be purchased every day at the Association office. However, Sunday purchases only include $10.00 boat passes and purchases must be made by check only.
Canoes, paddleboats, sailboats, and hydro-bikes are available for use.
Sailboats - residents must know how to sail before they can use a sailboat.
The last boat goes out 30 minutes before the docks close for the day.
5. Are boogie boards allowed?
Boogie boards are allowed when lifeguards are on duty at the lagoons only if the person using the boogie board can swim and is not using the boogie board as a flotation device. Also, standing on boogie boards is not permitted.
Boogie boards are not allowed at pools when lifeguards are on duty. Only noodles and kickboards used for lap swimming are allowed, provided that the person using them can swim and is not using them as flotation devices.

Minors must wear life preservers at all times.
