Dear Lake Isle Swim & Dive Team Members,
I regret to inform you that our team will be unable to conduct the 2020 season.
Lake Isle Country Club, in coordination with the Town of Eastchester and following the guidance of Westchester County, has notified us that the swim team cannot be accommodated at the pool this summer. This difficult decision was made in an abundance of caution and with the safety of our children in mind. However unfortunate, we must respect their decision.
I want to thank all of you that expressed interest in joining Lake Isle Swim & Dive this year. This summer was to be a season like none other, yet our parent board and coaches worked extremely hard to prepare as best possible. Our goal was to give the swimmers and divers a safe and fun-filled few weeks of summer. As we awaited the opening of the pool, and worried that the swim team might not be possible, our planning continued.
Our thoughts are with the children and the coaches. The swimmers and divers are amazing athletes. Lake Isle's talented coaching staff stood ready to guide and comfort them through this trying time. Please understand that we exhausted all options and pushed forward hoping for another successful year for Lake Isle Swim and Dive, what would have been our 41st season.
Thank you for understanding. I hope to see all of you next summer.
President, Parent Board
Lake Isle Swim and Dive Team
