    Dear Fairfields Members,

    This year we are offering you the ability to pay 2017 season rates if you renew and pay by January 31st, 2017.  If you know you are going to be renewing your membership, this is a great way to save some money this season as historically our annual dues increase by approximately 5%.  If you are interested in taking advantage of this offer, please login online and start the renewal there or contact Chris Beer to get more information.

    We are also offering members the ability to pay for their annual dues in 4 monthly payments.  Payments would be due January 15, February 15, March 15 & April 15th.  If you choose to take advantage of this payment method, you will be charged the 2018 annual due rate which will be announced by February 14th.

    For those members that wish to sell their membership this year, your deadline to request your sale and not be responsible for 2018 fees, is March 15th, 2018. All requests to sell must be received in writing to membership@fairfieldsswimmingclub.com

    2018 Board of Directors


  • 05 Jan 2018 2:21 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

    Dear Fairfields Members,

    Happy New Year to you all.  I hope you have been able to stay warm during this recent deep freeze.  I'd like to introduce you to the current 2018 Board of Directors & Support positions.

    President - Jenn Tondino
    Vice President - Chris Beer
    Secretary - Karin Kormann
    Director of Membership - Chris Beer
    Director of Communications - Lesley Smith
    Director of Water Maintenance - Dan Keenliside
    Volunteer Coordinator - Lesley Smith

    VACANT POSITIONS

    Treasurer (Interim - Jenn Tondino)
    Director of Staffing
    Director of Facility Maintenance
    Social Coordinator 
    New Membership Coordinator 
    Grants Coordinator 
    By-Law Coordinator 
    Legal Coordinator 
    Citi*Swim Coordinator 
    Marketing & Social Media Coordinator 
    Staffing Support 

    As a member owned and operated facility we rely heavily on members to volunteer for a variety of roles including joining the Board of Directors. The pool cannot operate without a Board of Directors who ensure that the pool is operational, that we have lifeguards and an amazing level of programming included as part of Membership!

    Sadly, we currently don't have some of our vital roles filled for the 2018 season at this time.  At this point, we don't have 3 valuable board roles covered for this upcoming season (Treasurer, Staffing & Facility).   We also need people to cover the majority of the Coordinator positions for 2018.  At this point we are continuing to plan for the upcoming season and will continue to do so until we are unable to move forward any further without those integral roles filled. Once we reach that place, all business at Fairfields will be suspended until a time when we do have those positions filled. Ideally we will have all Board & Coordinator positions filled to help disperse the workload of running a pool.

    This will seriously affect all programming, staffing, current & future grant applications and the operation and potential opening of the pool this spring. We would also have to look at options to hire someone to run the day to day business of the pool. Of course, if this is the route we take the annual dues will increase dramatically.

    Participating on the Board of Directors doesn’t need to be a full-time job (especially if all of the Board and support positions are filled!). However, often board members do spend a fair bit more time than a member who is not on the board. To account for this the members voted in favour that Annual Dues be refunded to Very Active Board Members (those that contribute over 100 hours of valuable service to Fairfields Swimming Club).

    We have provided links that briefly outlined the positions below and we ask that you seriously consider helping out so that we can ensure the pool operates next year! If you have any questions or want more details on specific roles please contact at president@fairfieldsswimmingclub.com.

    Thank you in advance to everyone!

    Jenn

    All board positions are open for nominations.

    We also have Seasonal/Support Coordinator positions available that do not require your attendance at monthly meetings and are primarily an in-season role only.

    If you have any questions about Board roles, Coordinator roles, time commitments, or what’s involved please contact us at info@fairfieldsswimmingclub.com.

    To nominate yourself or someone else for a Board or Seasonal position, please send an email to  info@fairfieldsswimmingclub.com and let us know the position you are interested in.

    Please note that the pool is now closing at 8.30pm for the remainder of the summer due to reduced daylight hours.

    It is also water polo night at Fairfields.  Due to the earlier closing, the Jr. Water Polo will run from 6.30pm-7.30pm and Adult (16+) Water Polo will run from 7.30pm-8.30pm for the remainder of the season.  If you haven't come out for a game yet season, why not swing by tonight!  Guests are welcome for a fee of $5.00 per person.

    The hours on the website will be updated to reflect this change by the week-end.

    The baby pool will be closed today due to a chemical imbalance and will be reopened tomorrow after a review by the Health Inspector.  Sorry for any inconvenience.

    The pool will close at 7:30 tonight so that the staff can properly do bathroom renovations, sorry for any inconvenience.

    The guards heard thunder at 12.15pm today, so the pool will remain closed until 30 minutes goes by without having heard thunder. We will announce when we are open, hopefully soon.

     

    What is the Thunder & Lightning Policy?

    Fairfields will require immediate closure of the pool in the event that lightning or thunder is present in or around the area. The pool will remain closed until 30 minutes past the last visible lightning strike or episode of thunder. The guards will write the time that they last heard/saw the event and the time that the pool reopen on the white board by the guards office.
