    Hi Members,

    As a board we have noticed the ‘honour-system’ on which the pool is based, has started being abused quite frequently.  We have had a fair number of incidents where a member is bringing a guest and claiming that they are a member to avoid paying the guest fees.  When addressed by the staff some members are denying that they have guests with them or pretending that they are someone in the family.  We have also had a few incidents where non-members are trying to get into the pool without a member present.

    Please take a few moments to review our FAQ’s about bringing Guests to Fairfields:

    Can members bring a guest?

    Yes. A fee of $5.00 per guest per day will apply and MUST be paid to the guards (correct change or small bills would be appreciated). Guest passes are available in booklets of 10 for $40.00 and can be purchased from any Director or at the pool office. Although we welcome your friends to the pool, please keep in mind our rules to ensure everyone enjoys themselves.  All guests must be accompanied by a Member in good standing.  Please ensure that when you bring a guest to the pool to notify the guards upon entering of any disability or medical conditions that may require their attention. All guests intending to swim in the deep end are also required to take a deep end test when they go to the pool by asking the lifeguard on duty to perform this test.

    My guest isn't swimming, do I have to pay a guest fee?

    Yes. All guests must pay the guest fee whether they are swimming or not.

    Our chief caregiver is bringing our kids to the pool, can the caregiver bring their children or other guests with them?

    No. Only a member that is 10 and over can purchase & use guest passes for their membership.  Chief caregivers are not able to purchase or use guest passes.  Any exceptions to this rule must be discussed with the head lifeguard and the board of directors in advance.

    What is a chief caregiver?

    A chief caregiver is someone that will be looking after your child(ren) regularly when you are not at the pool.  Typical examples of this are nannies, mother's helper, grandparents, etc.  There is no guest fee for a chief caregiver when bringing the member children to the pool, however, they must be listed on your membership form at the time of registration, renewal or when this information changes.  A chief caregiver does not have access to the facility when not acting in that capacity.

    When you come to the pool, ensure that you identify yourselves to the guard that will be sitting at the front desk when you walk in. The guards will then review your membership details.  You will still need to sign in to the visitor book and if you are purchasing a guest pass for a non-member, both the member & guest must be present while it is being purchased.  Please ensure you review any disability or medical conditions that your guest may have that could require the guards attention.  All guests intending to swim in the deep end are also required to take a deep end test when they go to the pool by asking the lifeguard on duty to perform this test.

    Please help to enforce the rules of the pool and if you notice any abuse of the pool, feel free to contact me directly.  

    Thanks,

    2016 Board of Directors

    Monday Night Lessons Start Tonight (June 20)

    Please note that Monday night lessons start tonight (June 20, 2016).  

    Adult lessons will begin tonight starting at 5:45 PM - 6:30 PM.  Adults not enrolled in lessons are still welcome to use the pool during adult swim times (5:30 PM - 6:30 PM) as these lessons will not use the entire pool.

    Monday night lessons for the kids will run from 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM.  As the kids lessons do take up the entire pool, there will be no family swim running for the next two weeks on Monday evenings.  Starting on July 4th, the pool will remain open until 9:00 PM and families are welcome to come and swim for the last 30 minutes of the day if you wish.

    Due to the weather forecast this evening, I wanted to remind you that lessons will run rain or shine. In the event that lightning or thunder is present in or around the area, Fairfields will immediately close the pool. The pool will remain closed until 30 minutes past the last visible lightning strike or episode of thunder.

    Volunteer Opportunities

    As you are aware, each family is responsible for completing 5 or more volunteer hours in order for your volunteer deposit cheque not to be cashed. We strongly recommend starting your volunteer hours early in the season to ensure you are able to complete these. We do not offer a credit for partial volunteer hours. 

    There are many opportunities over the season to help out at Fairfields Swimming Club. Volunteer opportunities are updated on our website regularly.  We need help with everything from Administration to Maintenance to everything in between. We are looking for members to step up and take a role in the pool by contributing quality time and services.

    REGISTER HERE

    Synchronized swimming is a hybrid form of swimming, dance and gymnastics, consisting of swimmers (either solos, duets, or teams) performing a synchronized routine of elaborate moves in the water, accompanied by music. Synchronized swimming demands advanced water skills, and requires great strength, endurance, flexibility, grace, artistry and precise timing, as well as exceptional breath control when upside down underwater.

    Dates: June 29 - August 21, 2015
    Monday through Friday
    No synchro on statutory holidays.

    This year we are combining both junior and senior synchro teams because of lower turnout in 2015.  If there is a large number of registrations then we will split the team into separate groups.

    Ages: 6 - 18
    **If under 6 years of age a decision to participate in synchro can be made at the discretion of the instructors.

    This program is not to be used on a drop in basis, weekly attendance is expected.  We will be preforming at the annual Regatta (August 28, 2016) as well as possible extra performances to occur throughout the summer.

    If you are on vacation throughout the summer but intend to come to practices regularly, please e-mail us or speak with the instructors directly to ensure your child will be in attendance enough to learn the final routine.

    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.

    Applying Sunscreen

    You should put on sunscreen at least 1/2 an hour before arriving at the pool and to shower before entering the water. Sunscreen and foreign matter do not mix well with the hot and sunny weather. They in fact promote the growth of algae and help the pool to go cloudy. When this happens we are sometimes forced to close the pool in order to fix the problem. 

    Showering

    All swimmers must take a soapy shower before entering or re-entering the pool.  There is soap in both change rooms for you to use.

    Food & Drink Policy

    No food or drink is permitted on pool deck at anytime. Bottled water will be the only exception. There are picnic benches in the yard for you to enjoy snacks and picnics at.
