Pool schedule changes for June 22-26

Pool schedule changes for June 22-26

Kent Gardens Recreation Club is a busy place and our swim and dive teams are a big part of what makes the community so strong. That said, some of their upcoming events do affect the general membership swimming times with team events or as KGRC hosts meets.

Please note the following schedule changes over the next week:

  • Friday, June 22: pool closes at 5:00 pm
  • Saturday, June 23: pool opens at noon, or when the swim meet concludes
  • Tuesday, June 26: pool closes at 5:00 pm for a dive meet. The dive well will close at 3:30 pm.

Every Friday night during the swim & dive season, there will be a pep rally at the pool at 7:00 pm. This is a fun way to get our swimmers revved up for the Saturday morning meets and allow everyone to wish them well. If your are at the pool, feel free to join in the chants and cheers- I promise it will make you smile!

This Friday night, our Dolphin swimmers & divers team kick off the season with their pep rally, photos and dinner. As mentioned, the pool will close at 5:00 pm for the evening for this annual event. We understand that some members who are not part of the swim or dive teams would like to enjoy a swimming pool on a Friday evening so we are lucky enough to work out a reciprocation swim with Tuckahoe Recreation Club just down the street. If you are interested in swimming at Tuckahoe Friday, you can pick up a voucher for that anytime Friday. We have 25 vouchers given out on a first come, first served basis. Each family member will need a voucher. The front desk at Tuckahoe will except these passes Friday only. Tuckahoe is located at 1814 Great Falls St., McLean, Va 22101.

Later in the competitive season, when the teams celebrate their hard work, we will do this again. And as we mentioned, it is reciprocation so there will be a couple of nights this summer where you will see some Tuckahoe members joining us!

We hope you enjoy this courtesy.
