    Hi Members,

    Due to the heat wave coming to an end and the guards school, sports, arts, etc., schedules, I just wanted to let you know that the pool will remain open until Tuesday evening at 8.00pm. Same week-day hours as last week, (4-8pm).  As of Wednesday, September 14th, Fairfields will officially be closed for the 2016 year.  

    Thank you again for such an amazing season and especially to the guards that were able to help us out past our expected closing date - Chelsea Rodman, Evan Chatfield and Mackenize Ingram.

    I'm sorry if I have not been able to reply to your e-mails lately, Francine Vance and I, with a few key others, have been working feverishly to finalize our application for a large grant from the Trillium Foundation (approx. $250K) and it is due this week.  Once we have finalized our application, I will return all outstanding e-mails.

    If you are one of the many people that have obtained quotes for us, can you please submit them to info@fairfieldsswimmingclub.com today.  Even if you only have 1 of the 3 quotes obtained at this time, please just send that.  We need to provide numbers or else that part of the process can not be included in the upgrades to the pool.

    So you are all aware, the following is what we are looking to upgrade at the pool:

    1. Update the pool’s plumbing and ventilation systems.
    2. Resurfacing and repainting the pool and deck.
    3. Replacing the fence with one that is safe and not easily climbed.
    4. Replace our temporary shade structure with a permanent one.
    5. Repairing the parking lot.

    As always, please send me any questions, comments or concerns and I will get back to you later this week.

    Also, a reminder that we will need board members for next year as 95% of our board has confirmed that they are retiring.  We need you to keep the pool going!!

    All the best,

    Jenn Tondino
    President, 2016 Board of Directors

    I hope you have enjoyed your summer so far.  I just wanted to let you know that there is a long list of volunteer opportunities listed on the website that still need to be done.  If you still need to get your volunteer hours done, please take a look as these will likely be the last of the opportunities for the season.

    Thanks,

    Board of Directors, 2016

    Dear Parents and Swimmers of the July 16, 2016 Citi*Swim meet,

    Congratulations on your first Citi*Swim meet this season!   Everyone did very well!!   If you haven`t received your ribbon(s) as yet, please see Chelsea R.

    Although the meet was held at the Lewis-Bradley Pool in Clarkson, the meet was hosted by Frank McKechnie Pool.  Among other things, the host pool is responsible for recording the results of each event (male and female: butterfly, back, breast, freestyle according to age; and mixed relays)  and awarding ribbons to swimmers that placed 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in the events.

    Unfortunately, the ribbons awarded to Fairfield swimmers that we received from Frank McKechnie only indicate the name of the swimmer stapled to a 1st, 2nd or 3rd ribbon. – we have no idea what ribbon goes with what event, nor do we know the swimmer’s time.    I talked to Heather MacNeil of Frank McKechnie and asked her to provide me with a spreadsheet or even a handwritten account of swimmer name, pool name, and time of those that placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd so that I would be able to match up the ribbons we received with the events and report that information to you.     Heather apologized that the ribbons did not indicate event and time.  She admitted that the record keeping was not done particularly well for this first meet and that it would be much better for the remaining meets (on a go forward basis ribbons will show name, event and time).   She didn`t sound very optimistic about providing me with any further event information; however, she does has my contact information in case she does track down more information.   If I receive anything further from Frank McKechnie, I will let you know.

    Hi everyone,

    I don't think I'm the only one that enjoys a cup of coffee (or many!) to get the gears turning in the morning. 

    As we have kicked off our third block of lessons this week, please remember that our "No Food or Drink (other than water)" on the pool deck applies to kids and adults alike.

    That includes your Grande Half Soy Caramel Latte Machiatto or Go Cup from home as well unfortunately! 

    We're happy to report our members have been doing great with keeping food and drink off the pool deck lately and this is just a small heads up for coffee and similar drinks particularly in the morning hours and at our lessons.

    It's a hot one out there, see you at the pool soon.

    Hi everyone,

    Have you had a chance to say "Hi" to all 10 Fairfields' Lifeguards for Summer '16 yet? 

    OUR FAIRFIELDS LIFEGUARDS ARE:

    Always there to Keep Us Safe 

    Safe swimming at Fairfields is essential. It only takes a simple accident to possibly turn to tragedy. Our guards are well trained in all aspects of guarding and actively improve their skills outside of guarding hours throughout the summer. 

    In 2015/16, Fairfields was fortunate to secure a government grant that enabled us to hire more guards for summer 2016. This has meant increased coverage, staff to swimmer ratios and even better service and attention.

    A Great Source of Club Information 

    If you have a question, please always feel free to ask a lifeguard. If they don't have the answer, they'll be able to direct you to the right person or send on your inquiry to get an answer. If you see something around the pool that you feel needs attention, please mention it to a guard to be addressed immediately or forwarded on.

    Teachers and Heroes to our Young Ones

    Our members with kids rave about the small classes sizes and rapid improvement in their child's swimming. We actively encourage kids and members alike to interact with and enjoy some fun with our guards - it's another part of what makes Fairfields so great!

    Our Lifeguards and Instructors for this year are featured on our website here:  http://www.fairfieldsswimmingclub.com/staff.

    Please, introduce yourself to the guards that take care of all of our safety.

    Lesson report cards will be available online on Fridays at the end of each session for your child.  All of the Bronze level examinations will be done in class on the last Friday of your session.  These report cards will not be available online until Monday evening.  The instructor will be informing each child if they have completed their level or if they should be repeating the same level at the end of their class.  This system will retain your childs report card for years to come.  You will be able to view your childs report card by clicking here

    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
