We have been notified that the Palencia pool will be undergoing a resurfacing repair around January 20th. The new materials being used have a lifetime guarantee however it may take up to 30 days for the pool to be operational again. The pool heaters will also be evaluated for repairs during this time. Coach Frank is working on expanding the practice times at the Solomon Calhoun pool to accommodate the Palencia swimmers. There will be more details on upcoming practice changes coming soon. Along with having fully repaired pool, we look forward to having access to an outdoor gym later this year at Palencia to compliment dryland training.
Our Palencia Cyclones are encouraged to coordinate carpools for the commute to Solomon Calhoun so swimmers don’t miss out on practice. We appreciate everyone’s support while we manage through these repairs.
