I am delighted to serve as the new Pool Chair this year. The Aquatics programming will be very similar to last year and we will continue to offer a 3-tier Pool Privilege structure: Single ($242), Family ($309), or Family with Programs ($494). This structure allows members to choose the Pool privilege that best suits them or their family from enjoying a casual swim and socializing poolside to taking advantage of lessons and swim team. If you haven't signed up for Pool Privileges for the last few years, this may be the opportunity you've been waiting for! Our lesson offering will include the popular Toddler Time swim class and our new Aquatics Director, Caroline Burns, will lead our successful Swim Team. Please review the key details below about the different programs at the pool.
On behalf of Commodore Guard 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, concerns or recommendations regarding the pool, aquatics programs or lockers.
