Swim Safety Course

Happy Holidays Folks! We have all learned a lot this year! We’ve watched kids in our program grow in their abilities – from gaining the confidence to blast off the wall on their own for the first time to finally mastering their flip turns, all of our swimmers have “leveled up” their swimming skills. As the year winds down and our usual sessions come to a close, we have decided to offer a new type of course. This is a short, one-week Safety Course, open to all ages and skill levels! In this course, students will learn essential survival skills including survival strokes, breathing and stabilization skills, treading water, lifejacket safety, emergency preparedness, and a little bit of playtime! The course consists of two hour-long classes, and we will offer the safety course twice over the winter break. If your kiddos could use a brush-up on their safety skills or you’re just looking for something to do over the break, sign up at the front desk or give us a call at (360) 676-1800.

Pool Heater Update

The parts are installed and the pool is heating!! Lap Swim will be offered tonight, Wed. Oct 31, 5pm-10pm No Water Aerobics or Family Swim. Thursday, November 1 the pool will re-open on schedule and all programs and classes will be operating!! It has been a tough few days for our pool and we cannot tell everyone how much we appreciate your patience and understanding!

Pool Heater Update

As noted, the projected date for parts and repair will be this evening or Wednesday morning. This means we will have to allow some time for re-heating. Our game plan is to re-open 5:00 pm-10:00 pm on Wednesday, Oct. 31st for Lap Swim only! No Water Aerobics or Family Swim. Pool Opens Thursday, Nov. 1st Regular hours and schedule. Again, thank you for your understanding and patience with this dilemma!

Pool Heater Update

At this time we are still awaiting one of the parts for repairing the pool heater. The water temperature has continued to drop and our pool repairman/expert has strongly advised us to cover the pool to slow the cooling process. He says: ” the cooler it gets the longer it takes to reheat”. So with that in mind, we have CLOSED THE POOL EFFECTIVE NOW. No lap lane swim, water aerobics or family swim. The Tuesday 9am-10am water aerobics class is canceled as well as all Tuesday swim lessons. Also no lap lane or family swim. Projected time of repair is late Tuesday to Wednesday mid-morning. We will keep you informed and post an email as soon as we know we are re-opening the pool. Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding!!

Spooky Swim

This Friday (October 26th) we are hosting a special “Spooky Swim” during our Evening Family Swim from 7-8:30 PM. If you want to do something festive for Halloween with the kids and you have an extra family swim pass lying around, come join us! There will be themed games, prizes, and lots of laughs!

Aqua Zumba

We have introduced our new Fall Schedule, so check it out–we have some classes returning after a summer hiatus, and Aqua Zumba is back on the schedule for Wednesdays at 10:30 am. Cindy Whitney and Toni Brooks are sharing the duties for that class. Aqua Zumba is a wonderful addition to our robust Aqua-aerobics schedule. We are so happy to see all our regulars back at it again; we are proud of you for keeping fitness an important part of your lives!

Swim Lessons Update

October is almost here, and so are the next round of swim lessons! You’ll notice that our pool area (and the gym) looking spiffy this week. We closed for our annual maintenance shutdown over the weekend, revamping the locker rooms, flooring throughout the club, repainting, and of course deep cleaning everything from top to bottom. Come by BAC and check things out the next time you’re in for lessons!

Since there has been a shift in the busy times, we are offering a greater variety of classes in the Evening session and expanding our afternoon offerings as well. Remember, if you have a student who is a little older and just starting out, we have a class for you! It’s called Starfish and will be offered throughout evening lessons. This is a great place for students who are nervous around the water or may have lingering fears from a prior experience in the water. We move at a pace that most students find comfortable and give plenty of positive feedback to all our students, ensuring an engaging experience at the pool!

                Additionally, we offer Swim Team for students who would like to explore swimming as a sport! Swim Team runs on Tuesday and Thursday from 5-6PM. If your student is interested, stop in during practice to watch us swim! We are happy to run tryouts during this time as well, so don’t hesitate to pop in and check things out.

Pool Filter

We are happy to announce the new high rate sand filter arrived and was installed this afternoon. The pool will be reopened and ready for all regular use at 5:30 am tomorrow Tuesday August 14th. We apologize for the inconvenience of having the pool closed over the weekend, and for a busy Monday. I can say that other than our routine yearly 3-day closure, I can’t remember having to close the pool for more than a 12 hour period in all the years I have been here. We work very hard to keep that busy pool up and running.

Pool Closure

Notice to all members! We are currently experiencing an emergency Pool closure. There is a new filter system being installed in our pool, so the pool will be closed for the weekend. However, all of the hot tubs are still in operation and we should open back up on Monday at around 3:00 PM. Lucky for us, the weather looks like it’ll cool off, so spend some time outside this weekend and we’ll look forward to seeing everyone back in the water next week!
