WE’RE OPENING SUNDAY MAY 28TH AT 12PM!
With the warmer weather, we are looking forward to the 2023 season at Northwest Swim Club!
Last year, the Board of Trustees was honored and excited that we were able to purchase a brand new liner for our 16,500 square foot pool for installation this spring. While scheduled to be installed in April, our installation was delayed due to national weather conditions and staffing challenges from our world renowned liner manufacturer Natare. Installation of the liner started today and could take up to three weeks for installation, weather permitting.
We anticipate being open for regular summer hours the week of June 4th, 2023, but are planning to open as soon as possible.
We understand that this news is disappointing when so many of us enjoy spending those few extra days at the pool before Memorial Day and while school is still in session. As owners and members ourselves, our own children and families are asking when they can swim and enjoy the summer fun. We know that Northwest Swim Club plays a big role in many of our family traditions at the beginning of summer and we will still have those traditions when we open.
Installation has begun and the staff and board will be frequently monitoring to ensure we can open as soon as possible. We are moving forward with all other preparations to open the pool as normal so that once installation and filling are complete, we can open immediately. Our management team has been working hard to prepare for normal operations as soon as possible- including extensive repairs throughout the fall and spring to prepare the pool bottom for the liner installation. In addition, they are performing annual maintenance, purchasing new equipment, planning social events, swim lessons, making website updates and hiring staff, among many other things. Together, the board and staff will provide frequent updates to keep everyone informed of our progress. We want the pool to open as soon as possible and will do everything in our power (weather permitting) to make sure that happens.
As the board is charged with fiscal and physical stewardship of our club, there was much discussion and planning for various situations and contingencies. We whole-heartedly believe that this possible slight delay is in the best long term interest of the club, the pool itself and our owners.
On behalf of the entire 2023 Board of Directors and our management staff, we appreciate your patience and accept all well wishes, prayers and ceremonial dances for good weather to help us open as soon as possible for the season!
