I hope this finds you healthy and doing as well as possible.
The most asked question of late at the pool has been, when will the pool be closing for the season? Initially we thought that we would likely be closing on Labor Day, however, we have been able to push our closing out a bit further until Saturday, September 12th.
Between now and then there will be some necessary modifications to the schedule as many of our staff will have, or will be starting school. Some of these changes will start the week of Monday, August 30th. More schedule changes will also occur after Labor Day.
As part of these schedule changes, starting August 22nd you will only be able to book through the 29th. Swims August 30th and beyond will be on hold until the evening of August 29th.
Please note that while the system is on hold you will not see any reservable swims beyond the 29th.
When the Omnify system does come back up we will also be reducing the number of reservable swims from 2, to 1 per week. This will be for both lap and family swims. Day of swims will still be available, we only ask that you limit yourselves to 1 swim per day.
The various schedules can be found below.
Swim Team – Until next year…
An amazing 177 swimmers registered for swim team this summer, including 6 new member families. The super-hero coaches Matt, Kai and Hanna juggled schedules every week to make sure everyone could swim.
While it didn’t feel like a normal season, swim team was our athletic, social and community anchor for the summer. We submitted times for prelims and city with some impressive improvements and results.
In the traditional Wedgwood way, it wasn’t just about swimming. We had Zoom dry land workouts, Wedgwood gear store, Flipgrid videos, Trivia Nights, Virtual Overnight, Movie Trivia Practice, Online Group Games, Girls Night. The team decorated the ‘Matt-rimony’ truck celebrating Coach Matt getting hitched and welcomed our youngest swim team member – Hudson, Coach Pete’s newborn.
We ended the year with a one-of-a-kind celebration for the high school seniors complete with Wedgwood
blankets, flowers, balloons and the obligatory tears from parents and friends. Special thanks to Dave Crowther for the thoroughly professional filming/video streaming so all could enjoy.
Upon reflection, a pretty good season.
