NSSC – End of Season Update ***

Last Email for the summer:  September 14, 2017

Goodbye to our summer friends!

Closing of the Pool:

Our pool is officially closed for the season Thanks to all of you who came to the pool on Sunday to help pack away the pool for the ‘off season’. It went fast and smoothly since there were so many helping hands. See you Memorial Weekend 2018!


David Springston and Angelo Cruz:  For installing our sound system! Climbing on ladders, crawling in the attic space, adding new speakers on top of the tall poles. A huge thanks for this effort. We all enjoyed the music throughout the season and the swim and dive meets went smoothly.

Grace Neary and Angelo Cruz: For installing and monitoring the security cameras at our pool. This is vital when the pool is closed. Thank you both!

Mike and Ben Dannholz, Nathan Corcoran, Patti Brockmeier: Did anyone notice there were no sand wasps this summer?  These folks completed the monumental task of adding lining below the volleyball court so the wasps could not dig their holes. Thank you all who worked so hard on that weekend in May to get this big job done.



Treasurer Committee:  We have a Treasurer, we need someone to help us set up credit card processing. Members can pay dues and other fees online. Starting in October; online in January 2018. Contact:  Renate Thompson:

Spirit Wear:  we are looking for someone to help set up an online ’shop’ for NSSC Dolphin spirit wear and pool items:  t-shirts, bumper stickers, towels, etc.

Membership Committee: We have a lead on this committee (Stephanie Southwick, incoming Membership Director). We are looking for someone to be:  Guest Fee supervisor and Party Scheduler. Contact: 

Operations Committee: Mike Dannholz is the lead on this committee but needs help. We are looking for someone (or multiple people) in the spring to:

Power wash the decks, maintain the playground, general repair of gates and fences, mechanical help with pool pumps.

Contact Mike Dannholz:

Front Desk Manager:   Someone to schedule the front desk staff, help train the staff, help organize the front desk area. Contact:


Dive Coach Needed

Next summer, we are looking for a dive coach to work with our diving Dolphins. This is a paid staff position. Amount will equal experience and age. Must be 18 years or older, trained as a diver, experience in coaching, teaching and/or working with young students. And be available for morning practices, some evening practices and every Tuesday evening for the meets.

By January 30, contact:  Celeste Leyhe



Thank you so much to the amazing social committee for all the collaboration for this year's events. We couldn't have done them without everyone who pitched in. Special thank you-s to our families who were Grill Masters this year, to Margaret Autry and Vanessa Briggs who hosted our Toddler Tuesdays, and to everyone who took the lead on an event. I am afraid if I start naming people, I will forget someone because there were so many awesome volunteers!

Please feel free to contact me ( in the off season as you think of amazing new activities for us to do. And we can always use help to put on the events, so if you would like to join the committee for next season, please let me know as well.

Be on the lookout for an off-season survey to see how well we met your needs in the programming department.

NS-SC Pool Renovation Project

   Winter 2016 -- -- 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: Yes, neighbors this is really happening!

If you have any questions, contact Dana Cibulski, President, Board of Directors, NSSC <>

Kids' Play Area Playset Playset

NS-SC playground is now up and functional!  Bring the kids out to swing on the swings, try out the slides and climb up the kids rock wall or explore the double-decker play area!

A huge thanks to everyone who helped make it a success, especially Angelo, Mike, Skip, Tony, Joel, Rick, Duane and all the people who helped with the heavy lifting.
