2020 Swim Season Canceled

 
Wyoming Seadragon Families,

We are sad to report that we will not have a 2020 Summer Swim Season.  We wholeheartedly support the City of Wyoming and Wyoming Recreation Center’s decision for the health and safety of our community. This was not an easy decision for them to make.  Our discussions on how to manage the numbers of our swimmers, coaches and family members under potential restrictions for meets and practices with the size of our team was proving difficult. 

Many ideas and plans will have to be put on hold and save for the 2021 Summer Swim Season. Remember that we are still here for you if you need anything. Send us artwork about swimming, your stay at home pictures or suggestions about what we can do to make the season better for next year. We would love to see and hear from you.     

We are especially sad for our outstanding High School Seniors.  Look out for future messages about supporting our Graduating Seniors.

Many of our older Swimmers and Coaches relied on income from their work at the pool. Some are now available for Nanny/Babysitting.  Reach out to us if you’d like their contact information.  

We will get through this. Stay safe and healthy!

April Robles Jen Golden Go Seadragons!


 

 

The COVID-19 health crisis has claimed yet another victim – the summer swim season.

After carefully weighing many factors, from safety concerns to the costs of operation in the middle of a health crisis, the City of Wyoming has made the difficult decision to not open the Aquatic Center for the summer.

“While we were hoping that summer activities would be able to resume without restriction, it is now clear that there will be continued impacts into the foreseeable future,” says Director of Recreation and Citizen Engagement Rachel Leininger. “We feel as though this decision is in the best interest of community safety and fiscal health. The start-up costs for the pool are significant and our projected return on that was going to be severely diminished.”

As with other municipal governments across the country, Wyoming is experiencing financial strain as tax revenues decline and demand for services continues. The city’s general fund could see a decline of 15 to 25 percent, says City Manager Lynn Tetley.  This requires cost cutting where possible, as unfortunate as that may be.
