Seeking Helping Hands! - Various Side Projects

Members: Our pool has a few simple projects that need to be done. Please contact us if you can help or know someone who can help.

·         Install a plastic sheeting around the janitor closet sink; drywall is getting wet and will eventually become soaked and need to be replaced

·         Replace wooden handles on our wheelbarrow (can purchase at Home Depot)

·         Install hooks in showers in men’s and women’s showers (would involve working with the tile wall)

·         Order and install a diaper changing table in family bathroom

·         Refurbish the tennis message board by the courts (The message board needs new Plexiglas on the front and a new backing).

We are hoping labor would be donated. Pool can cover materials.

Contact Dana for details. danacibulski@cox.net
 

Water Aerobics Class – Monday through Thursday

10:30AM (45 minute class) 5$ per person please come and enjoy the water, workout and wit!

 

Please contact Lisa Pritt for more information: lisasehpritt@gmail.com

 

 

Toddler Tuesdays - 9:30-10:30AM - Weekly

Parents of young children--something special just for you! Early morning play dates for children and their parents ages 0-5!

 

Please make sure to check in at the front desk. Lifeguards are around, but its swim team practice, so they will not be "on duty" as usual at the baby pool.

 

Please use the gate closest to the entrance and limit attendees to the fenced in area only. Because of swim team practice the pool deck is somewhat crazy, please use the family bathroom or use the front entrance to the restrooms only (by the sign-in desk). Please remember to rinse off sand when moving from the playground/sandbox to the baby pool (Sand kills the filtration pump, which results in a closed poolL).

 

This event is for ages 0-5; unfortunately, older siblings may not attend.

 

 

Adult Swim Classes beginning July 2

Are you an adult who never learned swim strokes?  You can dog paddle across the pool, but you don't "really" know "how to swim"?   You took lessons as a kid, but your strokes could use a tune-up? Samantha Batko will be offering Adult Swim Class on select Sunday mornings this summer - 30 minutes of class followed by an hour of quiet time in the pool to practice before the pool opens to the rest of the membership. Classes begin July 2, and class size is limited to 10.

 

Samantha is the current NSSC Dolphins swim team rep, with 25 years of competitive swimming experience and a cumulative 10 years of swim coaching/instruction experience.

 

Please see the attached flyer for further information.  Email sbatko@gmail.comor jennifer.porter.mail@gmail.com for further information or to sign up.

 

 

Adult Lap Swimming - Sunday

Lap Swimming will be available from 10:00 - 11:00 on Sunday mornings, July 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 and August 6, 13. Come get your workout in before we open to the general membership, while the pool is quiet.  

 

As this event will be offered outside of our normal operating hours, we will be charging a nominal entrance fee of $2.  Exact change would be much appreciated! We hope to see you this Sunday!

 


Best regards,

North Springfield Swim Club

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!
