Opening Day – Saturday May 14th

Ready, set…  It’s almost time. Opening day is this coming Saturday. The long-anticipated, hopeful to be as normal as possible summer swim season is almost here. Are you ready? I’d like to think I am, but I certainly hope we see some warmer weather soon!

As we enter our third summer of operations with COVID I want to encourage all members and staff to be aware of physical distancing, and to be respectful of others in and out of the pool. While face masks are now optional, our responsibility in keeping the Wedgwood Pool a safe place is paramount. I want to reiterate that if you, or someone in your family tests positive for COVID, has symptoms or an exposure, please stay home and get tested. When you are feeling better, you can come on down and enjoy the pool. 

As a staff we will be following these guidelines compiled from the CDC and we encourage you to do the same.

Now let’s get to when the pool will be open… for the first weekend the pool will operate on our typical early season schedule.

Now there are a couple of things to be aware of the first of which is a good news bad news thing. The good is that we are just finishing up the installation of new starting blocks for our swim team. The bad is that we will not have a diving board this year. The diving board project was initially started last fall, but due to of a combination of problems with permitting, coupled with supply chain issues, the installation of the new board had to be shelved until a later date.

We have also removed the two outdoor pull handle showers and have installed another one of the more permanent showers. There are now two identical showers on the wall outside.

There are still dozens of other things left to do between now and Saturday, but things are falling into place. We will be ready for the opener.

It’s good to be back. See you at the pool!

We will be doing a hybrid of online and in person registration this year. Non-members will register for swim lessons using the online platform (Team Unify-Sports Engine).

  • 6-7pm: In person member registration at the pool

In order to make this process go smoothly for session 1, please email Julie Lockhart, the lesson coordinator, at: as soon as possible so that she can help you get your team unify account set up prior to member registration on June 1st. 
(Note, if you already have a swim team team unify account you can use the same email, but you will need to set up a new account for swim lessons!)
