JUNE UPDATE TO SHARED LAP LANES AND SWIMMING TIMES 5.21.21

Attention all Lap Swimmers AND Hydrofitness Participants

SUMMER IS HERE AND DURING THIS SHORT 8 WEEK TIME OUR SCHEDULE WILL CHANGE SLIGHTLY.  MONDAY THRU THURSDAY LAP SWIM AND HYDROFITNESS TIMES ARE 5:30-7:30AM AND 10-11:30AM ON FRIDAYS LAP SWIM AND HYDROFITNESS ARE 5:30-11:30.
 
During the APRIL and MAY we did a survey of many of the lap swimmers about the possibility of sharing lanes. Starting in the Month of June we are moving to all lanes being shared lanes.  When you are in the shared lane, please follow the lap swimming rules posted at the end of the lane.  One swimmer will start on the deep side of the pool and one on the shallow side next to the office.  Please stay on your side of the lane.  If you are in the shallow or Deep your assigned spot is on the Right hand side of lane.  NO CIRCLE SWIMMING!!! The lane is divided by the black line that runs down the middle. 

If you are unable to make your assigned reservation, please give us at least 24 hours’ notice when cancelling (903)464-4475. We realize there will be special circumstances on occasion but these are the rules we need to set going forward. If you miss TWO reservations without cancelling at least 24 hours in advance, your reservations will be cancelled for the next 2 weeks and your time slot will go back up for others to reserve. You can always log on and check for availability at any time and pick up some of the cancelled lap lanes or call and ask a cashier if there is a available lane.

We understand that this is not ideal, nor will some people feel it is fair. Please know that our only goal is to ensure that as many people who want to safely swim at Waterloo Pool get a chance to do so. If you have comments or questions, please feel free to contact me at dsmith@cityofdenison.com

 

World's Largest "FREE" Swimming Lesson - Friday, May 28, 2021

The World's Largest Swimming Lesson™ is a FREE event designed to build awareness about the vital importance of teaching kids to swim to help prevent drowning. What's exciting about the WLSL event is that so many organizations and individual aquatic facilities are coming together to make it happen. The WLSL event helps capture the passion we have for this critical issue as individuals and focuses all that energy on one message for this one day.

The 2021 World's Largest Swimming Lesson™ will take place on Thursday, June 17th. We will hold our session during our Open Swim Time. Registered Participants will take this FREE 30 Minute Class and then afterwards get to enjoy Open SWIM afterwards for FREE. Let's make a difference by working together this summer. After all, learning to swim and the exposure to the water safety skills and messages that swimmings lesson offers provides a lifelong foundation for drowning prevention.
