Dear VJO Swimmers and Parents,

It’s great to have everyone back at practice again!  We hope everyone had a great Holiday season. We apologize again for the extended break.  While installing the new boilers and pump they ran into some unforeseen delays which extended the re-heating time of the pool.  Both new boilers are now working strong and the pool has been back up to temperature since last Thursday Jan 3rd.  We thank everyone for your patience during this break.

What to do if you take a break from swimming?
If your son or daughter plans to take a break from swimming with VJO please make sure you notify the team via email or written notice two weeks in advance.  Please email our Membership Chair, Diane Powell (DSRNPOWELL@aol.com) and Treasurer, Dora Tang (treasurer@vallejoaquatics.org) the dates you son or daughter will not be swimming.  This can also be done clicking the contact us on our team website,  where your email will notify the same individuals. You will also need to pay a $10 inactive fee during the months your child is not swimming.  Paying the inactive fee will enable you to join back at any time without having to pay the family member fee again.  Thank you!
