Dear SHYC Members,

This year, we implemented a new 3-tier Pool Privilege structure: Single ($235), Family ($300), or Family with Programs ($480). I hope this new structure will bring more members to the pool for a swim. If you haven't signed up for Pool Privileges for the last few years, this may be the opportunity you've been waiting for! For lessons we will offer the popular Toddler Time swim class again and our successful Swim Team will be lead by Matt Banks & Justin Gaudreau. Please review the key details below about the different programs at the pool.

On behalf of Commodore Davis and the Pool Committee, I welcome you all to the pool this summer and I look forward to working with you and your children. Please contact me with any questions about the pool or lockers.

Key Events & Dates

Wed July 11 Splash Party

Our annual Children's Splash Party for kids under 12. Maura & John MacDonald, Amy & Todd Pischel and Lisa & Paul Tyrrell will host this fun night of music, games, pizza and prizes. Mark your calendars. Note this is not a drop off event.

Sundays July 1, August 5 and September 2 - Intra Club Swim Meets

Swim meets are a fun and stress-free swim meetand experience for swimmers of all ages. There is an across -the pool race for our youngest athletes who are 6 and under. The last Intra-Club meet on Labor Day weekend concludes with the Adult Relay and Family Relay events. We encourage swimmers to swim in at least one Intra club and those that swim in at least two will be eligible for the yearly Swimming Awards. Last year we had 18 Club Records broken and lots of fun was had by all swimmers and the families.


Matt Banks will return as Pool Director and Head Coach and Justin Gaudreu returns for his 5th year at SHYC! These two will continue to make sure our kids are good (and fast) swimmers along with Olivia Lawrence, Nina Joseph and Alison Moore. We also have a great team of lifeguards who will keep the pool safe.

Lessons & WSI Aid Program

June 2 Lesson registration begins online

If you're not sure what swim level to choose for your child, we will conduct assessments on Sat, June 9 from 3-6 pm. If the lesson you want is full, please find a different class and contact me with any problems.

  • Separate from this packet, you'll find a SHYC Lesson Information Packet with all lesson and schedule details.
  • The Water Safety Instructor Aid program will continue this season. More information is in the SHYC Lesson Information Packet.
  • To ensure each student gets the attention they need, we've reduced the class size and the number of classes offered.

Swim Team

We encourage our swimmers to attend at least two practices per week, and as many as four practices per week.
