PST News

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Alameda County has opened outdoor pools. We don’t know what that will do to our hours at MSC yet. It is likely that we will lose lanes and hours at MSC and gain some at ECCL and possibly another pool within the next week or so. Please stay patient as we navigate through yet another change. Unfortunately, we will need to postpone the Awards Banquet in order to focus our attention on securing space to swim.

This Week:

Practice cancellations due to bad air quality will be sent out around 5:15am for morning practices and around 1pm for afternoon practices. You can view our policy here

Please note, we will only send notifications if practices have to be cancelled or adjusted. 

Help needed: We will need a few volunteers to take our canopies and buckets from MSC back to our storage unit in Emeryville this week. Please contact Coach Stefan (stefan@piedmontswimteam.org) if you can help out. Thank you!

Important Dates

POSTPONED -Annual Awards Banquet and Raffle via Zoom. More details to come

Measure UU: Piedmont Community Pool

First, BIG THANKS to all those who have generously donated money and/or time to help with Measure UU! We are off to a great start!

Second, WE NEED ALL ATHLETES TO SIGN UP and do a flyer drop around town this weekend - https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0f4ea5af283-help ! You are signing up for a slot to grab a packet, and then can do your drop when convenient during the weekend. Be sure to include your address and we will do our best to allocate the streets closest to you!

Lastly, we still need many more hands to help with outreach to voters! This involves taking a few streets in your neighborhood, and by phone/email/text or a note dropped to their door, reaching out to neighbors to ask if they know about Measure UU. We will train, and provide contact list and materials to help! And if you have friends in your own network that are pool supporters, please ask them to volunteer to help as well. We need to reach ALL voters, especially the non-pool users, to ensure this Measure passes! 

 Please visit our website www.communitypoolforpiedmont.com for more information and sign up to volunteer, donate and publicly endorse to show your support. 

THANK YOU!
