Friends of Rutherford Pool values making sure the pool accessible to everyone who wants to enjoy it, especially children/youth. Though we do rely on gate fees, pass purchases and paid lessons to keep the pool operating, we do raise money each year for families with need to request scholarships or partial scholarships.

We have closed our scholarship program for 2019 season passes and lessons. If you have an economic need for support and want to be considered for some free daily entries, please email Joel Rutherford at and include a short description of your need.

Otherwise we intend on giving family passes and scholarship lessons in 2020 and recommend that you make an application in May 2020.
