Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

We try to anticipate questions you may have about our association, pool, clubhouse, and activities. If you need additional information, please send us an email at info@hcrafairfax.org.


How do I become a member of the pool?

If you live within the Hampton Chase Homeowners Association sections of the neighborhood (Sections 4 through 11) you are automatically a member of HCRA; provided that you are in good standing with HCRA and are fully current in your annual homeowner's assessment dues. 

A list of all addresses belonging to HCRA can be found at HCRA Membership Addresses. If your address is not listed, then you are not a member of HCRA and membership is offered annually to the following qualified homeowners:

(1) if you live in the other sections of Hampton Forest – you are invited to apply for associate membership and are required to pay the annual dues; or

(2) if you are a renter, the homeowner/landlord may transfer their interest in the pool membership to you, providing the landlord is in good standing with HCRA.

(3) If you live in one of the neighboring Homeowners Association approved by the HCRA Board for an annual membership, you can apply for an Associate Membership for the current year.  Information and the forms can be found on our Membership Page.

Please contact info@hcrafairfax.org if you require additional information. 


How do I get a pool pass (I’m new to the community)?

In order to obtain a pool pass, you must first obtain membership to HCRA (see above) for the current year. Please contact Cardinal Management to obtain an application and make payment.  The Cardinal Management Direct Debit Fillable Form can be found here.

Do all of my children need a pool pass even if they are really young?

All children are required to be registered in the pool pass system under the family household, and the following rules apply per age group:

  • All children age 0 to 11 are required to have a pool pass and must be accompanied by an adult member or childcare provider when at the pool. 
  • All children age 12+ are required to have a pool pass but may come to the pool on their own and can sponsor guests at the pool.

Can my children bring toys / floats to the pool?

Children are permitted to bring small toys to the pool for their personal enjoyment.  Large floats and large toys (i.e. water machine guns) are NOT permitted in the pool, and can be confiscated by the pool staff.


Can I bring a guest to the pool?

Guests are permitted to come to the pool with any Member in good standing.  Members are responsible for their guests and must remain on the premises while their guests are at the pool.  Guest fees are $5.00 per person, per day, regardless of whether the guest will be swimming or not. Guest passes may be pre-loaded onto your CellBadge account and any unused passes will roll over to the next season.
