*** 
NSSC – 9 August Update ***

Dear fellow NSSC Pool members,  

Please find below this week’s relevant information and updates. Questions, suggestions or information - Contact Dana Cibulski, President, danacibulski@cox.net

 

Pool Hours:

Daily 11AM – 9:30PM

Hours may change depending on weather and special events.

 

Food Truck Friday – ‘Off The Wall Tacos’ - August 11

This Friday we have Off the Wall Tacos serving in the parking lot.

 

Welcome!

 

Meet the Board ‘Wine Down’ – Saturday 12 August 6-8-ish PM

Come and meet your Board of Directors. See who has been working hard behind the scenes to keep our community pool running.

 

Bring a bottle of wine, cocktail or non-alcoholic drink to share, a plastic glass, OR appetizer/dessert to share. Guests 21+ only please for the ‘wine down’ partaking.

 

Social Events

Thursday, August 10th is Noodle Night!  Bring your favorite noodle dish to share and play with foam noodles in the pool.  There will be oodles of noodles and you won't want to miss it! (Non-pasta dishes may be shared as well).

Thursday is also National S'mores Day! Come roast a marshmallow and have a s'mores on us to celebrate. Join us at the fire on the volleyball court. An adult (21+) must supervise any child under the age of 16 around the fire.

Friday, August 11 is our first* Dive-In Movie: Moana. We will begin at 8:15 p.m.; don't forget to pack a blanket/sweatshirt as it can get chilly when the sunsets.

*Many of our members want to know why we don't do more movies. It has everything to do with our wonderfully long summer nights; unfortunately, the sun sets so late in June and July that we can't begin the movie until almost closing time at the pool.

Looking Ahead:

Thursday 8/17: will be our last Grill Master and Trivia night for the season! Come have a hamburger or cheeseburger ($3) and see how much random trivia you have in your head.
Saturday 8/19: will be Cocktail Tasting for members 21+. Bring your favorite liquor or alcoholic concoction and an appetizer or dessert to share with your pool friends.

------ ** Ongoing Weekly Activities ** ------

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 - Sunday Mornings

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.com or jennifer.porter.mail@gmail.com for further information or to sign up.

 

 

Adult Lap Swimming - Sunday Mornings

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

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!
