Exciting - NEW Pool

 

Hello DASH Families,

Along with information regarding the upcoming season, the DASH board is excited to announce our partnership with the Dubuque Community School District in building a new pool!  DASH is joining forces to expand the district’s newly planned competition pool and providing a new home to our DASH family of swimmers!

The partnership will provide DASH with a 25-year rental of the pool during non-district times in exchange for $1 million to cover the cost of expanding the pool to 75 feet wide.  The expansion will allow the high school swim teams to practice simultaneously and will be finished swimming two hours earlier.  Thus, allowing DASH to get in two hours earlier to run our programming.  We are very excited about this partnership!

This announcement now allows us to explain the $25 Facility Enhancement Fee.  For our fundraising campaign, we need to show 100% of our families are contributing to the pool expansion.  This is the best way to promote this.  This fee will be applied per member, per season, until we are in the new facility.  If you would like to give more, we would greatly appreciate it!  You can send a check to our P.O. Box, (P.O. Box 1062, Dubuque, IA  52004-1062), you can donate through the community foundation website, www.dbqfoundation.org/fillthepool, otherwise, watch your mailbox for more information on how to donate!

Practice for the Fall/Winter 2017/2018 season started tonight for our Gold, Silver and Bronze groups!  Blue and Green 1 groups start October 16th, and White and Green 2 start November 6th.  If you have not yet registered, click here to access the registration page.  Free Trial for new members will be available soon – anyone you know interested in joining DASH, please let them know to register on our website, just click on the Free Trial button!

Click here to access our 2017/2018 Fall/Winter Fees and Work Session Requirements.  Watch for this Month’s newsletter.  We will have numerous jobs available to meet your work session requirement that are not during a swim meet! 

Below is the full practice schedule by group that Doug sent out.  Please check the DASH website calendar if you are questioning anything and you can always contact a coach or a Board Member as well!
