*** Announcements for 28 July 2016 ***

Dear fellow NSSC members,


Please find below this week’s announcements.


Respect and Listen to Our Life Guards --Please

We have observed some instances recently when members have not followed directions from our life guards. They are trained and certified in pool and water safety practices, first aid, and mechanical operations of our pump system.


To clarify a recent question, when a guard spots lightning or hears thunder, the safety regulation is to evacuate the pool water for 30 minutes—every time there is another clap of thunder, it is another 30 minutes. Frustrating – yes; the rule—yes.


Here are some other safety regulations that the lifeguards must uphold:


·       No speaking to the guard while in the chair (speak to the 2nd guard on duty in the office)

·       No running on the pool decks

·       No rough play in the water or on the decks

·       No flotations (rafts, etc.) other than on those special nights

·       Parents/guardians must be within arm’s reach of children who cannot swim (even with ‘swimmies”)

·       No glass containers on the pool decks or near the pool water

·       No food or drink (other than water) on the pool decks; enjoy these in the picnic area

·       If the pool is crowded, the guards reserve the right to call a 15 minute break

·       If the dive well area and diving boards get too crowded or ‘out of control’, the guards reserve the right to close that area.


Please be respectful. The safety of our members and your children are our utmost concern.


Any questions, please ask your favorite board member. If you are have an issue regarding any employees please contact 


Food Truck Friday – Healthy Fool

This week we are hosting Healthy Fool on Friday 29 July.  Vietnamese rolls, wraps, salads, soup. They are parked in our lot from about 5:30-8:30pm.


Invite your non-member friends to swing by and enjoy dinner from the truck. And come by yourself—don’t cook—it’s too hot!


Last Dolphin Spirit Night – Friday 29 July


All welcome! Free! Come to the picnic area and help make a large banner for the teams to bring to their divisional competitions this weekend, perhaps other future events, and hang at the pool. GO DOLPHINS!


Lost and Found “Dump Day” Monday, August 1

Please check the “lost and found’ area next to the ping pong table for items that you have lost at the pool. On Monday, August 1 at 11am, the bins and items in this area will be removed. They are donated to charity.


Wasps in the Sand Box! - in Playground

The  wasps are almost gone!


We know that many of you have been missing the sand box in the playground area. About 3 weeks ago, wasps starting burrowing nests in the ground around the sand box.


We tried using ‘toxic-free’ homeopathic methods to get rid of the wasps. But after 2 weeks, it was not working. This week, we starting spraying pesticides (not in the box, but around the box on the ground) and the wasps are almost completely gone.


If you or your child is very allergic or sensitive to chemicals, please avoid the sand box area for another week or longer.


We hope to re-open the sand box play area this week. We are looking for volunteers to help with issues like this in the future.  Please contact Patti Brockmeier ( if you have any questions.


National Night Out, Tuesday, August 2



NNO is coming up, and as you know, this is a night when the entire neighborhood is invited to the pool with free admission.  This event is co-sponsored by the NS Civic Association. So, invite your NS neighbors who are not members!


Free swimming, free ice cream, and some more food for sale. “Wakefield 221”, a local band is playing from 6:30-8:30pm. NNO is a nation-wide event, sponsored by police departments, where citizens are encouraged to gather and ‘take back the night’ to learn more about safety in their neighborhoods.


It's a great time for us to put our best foot forward and entice new members, while also hosting our local law enforcement who will speak to us on safety concerns and related issues.


To pull off this event, we need YOUR help.  Specifically, we need:


·       1-2 people to work the membership table

·       3-4 people to grill and serve food 

·       2-3 people for set up and clean up


If you can help, please email Renate Thompson directly at or follow the link to this SignUp Genius: Link.

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 <>
