Welcome New Members!

We want to welcome the Harter family to our pool this summer. They bid and won a pool membership at the Annandale High School auction this year.

Michelle and Andrew moved to North Springfield in May 2016. They have one daughter, Elizabeth “Ella”, who is a rising second-grader at NSES. They are looking forward to swimming, social events and getting to know the community better. Michelle, Andrew and Ella, we look forward to seeing you around the pool decks soon!

We also want to welcome the Bernard family to our pool this summer. They won a pool membership at the North Springfield Elementary School bingo.

Christopher and Rheanna, and their three children (Brian, Ami and Phillip), have lived in the area for five years. They have loved being a part of the community and being actively involved in events here and at their children's school. We are so excited to spend our summer at the North Springfield Swim Club!

Lost and Found Handler Needed

This could be an easy job or community service for a young person.


The pool is looking for a teen or adult to keep track of the “lost and found” bins. Every 2 weeks (usually a Monday following the busy weekends), this person will go through the items left at the pool. It is up to the discretion of this person what to do with the items: to give everything to charity, try to return labelled items, and donate towels to animal shelters.


For more info or questions, please contact Dana at danacibulski@cox.net



Front Desk Manager Needed

We are looking for an adult volunteer to work with teen staff and teen front desk supervisor. The latter handles the scheduling.


We need a ‘mom’ or ‘dad’ that would help support the front desk reception area and make sure things run smoothly.


You could:

·         Help train the front desk staff (greeting patrons and guests, answering phone, duties—we would support and give you info about this)

·         Help update the front desk white erase info board

·         Help set up the front desk area—it needs to be better organized and run more smoothly

·         Help the scheduling supervisor with difficult situations with the staff—showing up late, not getting a sub, etc.

·         Reminders to fill out pay forms and pick up checks


For more info or questions, please contact Dana at danacibulski@cox.net


Important Dates

May 20           Adult Luau

NS-SC Pool Renovation Project

   Winter 2016 -- NS-SC.org -- North Springfield Swim Club (NSSC) Project Renovation Update -- February 2016

After more than 50 years, our community swim club is going through a major renovation. Built in 1957 and one of the first original 5 community pools built in Northern Virginia, NSSC is finally having a face lift. As of January 1, demolition has taken place, dumpsters are in place, and roof trusses delivered! Mid-February, a roof will be placed over the entire bath house—previously it was “open-air” in keeping with the 1950’s style. Completely new, updated bath and changing rooms will be built and all areas will finally meet the ADA, handicapped accessible design requirements, that didn’t even exist when the original bath house was built. The construction is to be completed by opening day for the summer 2016 season.

The pool’s Board of Directors and the Renovation Committee, headed by Robert Sweeney (previous President), Kathy and Mike Dannholz, has been working tirelessly (and on a volunteer basis!) over the past several years, planning, getting funding in place, and preparing the grounds for this historic event. From several area businesses, 2 local North Springfield residents were selected to lead the project. Shamual Choudhury (Easton Drive) of Moore Architects is the lead architect and Steve Bowes (Atlee Place) of Phoenix Home Services, is the lead contractor.

Walk over to the site, at the intersection of Leesville Blvd. and Earlehurst Street, to check out the progress over the next several weeks. Updated photos will be added to the pool website during the spring as well:  ns-sc.org. Yes, neighbors this is really happening!

If you have any questions, contact Dana Cibulski, President, Board of Directors, NSSC <danacibulski@cox.net>
