Normandy Park Swim Club Annual Letter

A MESSAGE from your NPSC President

May is not that far away so it won’t be long before we will see each other down at the pool. We look forward to getting the annual work started so we can open and enjoy our great facility. Under the leadership of our past board we have continued to maintain a fiscally sound community pool! As a Board we continue to listen to our membership and make plans to enhance and continue programs and policies that make NPSC the great value it is. We have listened to the members and have formed committees to look into ways of improving our facility. This year’s Board and Management will continue to look forward to hearing from you when you have questions, concerns or just want to share a positive experience! Back this summer is the team of Kerry Johnsen and Kelli Foster as our Pool Managers. Our coaches, guards and instructors are currently being hired! With the work parties, Cinco de Mayo & other fun events, and pool opening just around the corner; the excitement is building! Let’s read those Shark Bytes, get involved and help us continue to make NPSC the best facility that we can!!

Gary Bolma

Synchro is a great way to be a member of a team, make new friends, enjoy the water, build strength, coordination, and endurance, and put on a great show in a non-competitive, positive atmosphere! Everyone is welcome – All ages…girls AND boys!

In order for there to be a team we must have enough kids participating. The number of kids needed is approximately 24. Without enough kids we may not be able to support a synchro team this year.
