Half Way – No Way!

We have survived that incredible heat wave, and it appears, for at least the time being, that our more Seattle-like summer has returned. We are about to hit the half-way point of the season and every day that goes by seems just a bit more normal than the one before. The return of guests coupled with both the diving board and basketball hoop have been welcome additions.

If you aren’t familiar with our diving rules they are posted at the pool and/or you can take a look at them here. Also, something to be aware of is that while the hoop is back it is not always available. During family swim, Monday – Friday 5:30-7:00pm we will often take the hoop out to help maintain a more quiet and calm environment for families with small children. The hoop will not be available from 8-9pm Monday-Thursday during Adult Lap Swim as there is very limited pool space during this time. Other than that, as long as the pool doesn’t get too crowded, please feel free to come in and get your game on.

Ice Cream!

Feeling a little more social? Well we’re having an ice cream social on Friday, July 16th from 7-9pm. Come on down to the pool and enjoy an ice cream novelty.

Adult Meet?!

I’ve heard through the grapevine that there may actually be an Adult Meet this year on Saturday, July 24th and that it might be at Sheridan Beach. I will certainly share more details as/if they become available.

Water Polo?

We are at the point now where we need to figure out whether or not we have enough interest/commitment to proceed with our own water polo program this season. Now water polo won’t officially start until August, but if you are 12 or over, vaccinated, and looking to play, we would like you to put your name down on the sign-up sheet in the pool lobby. The sooner the better. Those 12 and under may be able to play at View Ridge as they have offered up an invite for Wedgwood kids to play there this year, but have limited space. If we don’t have enough interest with our 12 and ups they may be potentially able to play there as well.

Guests

No change with regard to guests this week. We will continue with the following:

Currently full and senior members may bring children and grandchildren as guests. Houseguests (people staying in your home from out of town) are also permitted. We ask for all other situations that each family only bring a maximum of 2 guests per visit.

Teen Swim

On Friday, Saturday and Sundays from 7pm to close, teens may bring in up to two guests for $5 each. These guests do not count against the guest allotment.

Home Meets

We have another home meet next Tuesday, July 13th, and then another on Thursday, July 22nd. The pool will only be open for Adult Laps (6 lanes) from 1:15-3:15 on home meet days. There will not be Open Swim time during this time.

Aerobics

Aerobics has been popular this year and we are adding Tuesday and Thursday into the mix starting next week as well. The time will be the same, so Monday – Friday from 8:15-9:00am. Please note that once swim team is over in early August we will be pushing the Tuesday and Thursday classes to a later start time of 12:15pm.

We will likely continue to use the FunFangle reservation system for Aerobics for the remainder of the season as well as keeping this as a members only activity. 

  • You will need to use your same funfangle log in as you used for pool reservations back in May and early June. (if you have not made a funfangle account yet, email wwlessoncoordinator@gmail.com for the sign-up link and instructions)
