GREAT TO SEE EVERYONE BACK AT THE POOL!
Last week was our first week back at the Cunningham Pool. It was great to see everyone back at our home pool again after a long 7 months of renovations. Our swimmers seem to be adjusting well to our new practice schedule and practice procedures. Please keep in mind this was just a soft opening for the Cunningham Pool and there will still be construction going on at the facility over the next couple of months.
I also want to remind everyone to please air on the side of caution. If your swimmer is not feeling well, please have them stay at home. Also if someone in your household may have been exposed to COVID-19, please keep your swimmer(s) at home until you know for sure. Our goal is to keep our swimmers and families as safe as possible at the pool and you can help us in achieving that. If you ever have questions, please feel free to contact Head Coach, Jennifer Thiem at [email protected] or (707)292-6473.
Groups Filling - Please know that we have a limited group capacity in each of our groups due to the COVID-19 restrictions. Some of our groups have already filled. Once a group hits it's maximum swimmers capacity, the group will be closed to new and returning swimmers a a waiting list will be created.

PRACTICE PROTOCOL PROCEDURES- CUNNINGHAM POOL
All VJO swimmers and families attending practice at the Cunningham Pool must read through our "Practice Protocol Procedures" PDF for Cunningham Pool. We need all swimmers to know what to expect when they arrive for practice at the Cunningham Pool. The PDF will teach our swimmers the new protocol and procedures that we will be following at the Cunningham Pool. These procedures are similar to both the American Canyon and Benicia Pool.
