Good afternoon Desert Thunder,
With short notice Chandler Unified School District has announced they are re-opening the pool for usage effective Monday, 9/21. With a quick 36 hour scramble we created a schedule that gets our younger groups and masters back to CHS. Seniors and HSD will continue to train at Arrowhead because we cannot get earlier time anyway at CHS and we did not want to completely alienate the city after they've gone to great lengths to help us revise and extend our contract just 24 hours prior to CUSD announcing the re-opening. We are returning to a much cleaner, straight forward schedule with increased swims for most groups.
The general schedule by group:
8U: M, W, F 4:30-5:30 PM (3 swims) @ CHS
Rookie: M, W, F 5:40-6:40 PM... Th 6:40-7:40 PM... Sat 7:30-8:30 AM (4 swims) @ CHS
Gold: M, W, Th, F 6:40-7:55 PM... Sat 7:15-8:30 AM (5 swims) @ CHS
Juniors: M-F 5:40-6:40 PM (5 swims) @ CHS
Pre-Seniors: M, W, F 6:40-7:55 PM... Tu/Th 5:40-6:55 PM... Sat 7-8:30 AM (6 swims) @ CHS
Seniors: M-Th 8-9:45 PM @ Arrowhead... Fri/Sat TBA, but should be at Arrowhead (awaiting a confirmation)
Masters: M, W, F 5-6 AM... M-F 6:40-7:40 PM @ CHS (Triplex 3 swims, Regular 4 swims)... Sat OTH is TBA
There are some dates of home high school dual meets that will throw our schedule into an occassional flux, so just bear with us on those.
We are still running a sign up system. I'll send that out tonight or tomorrow for the coming week.
I'm going to review if there are any changes to ingress/egress. I may be requesting permission to open the NW gate for ingress since that corner is the least likely to have high school swimmers gathering.
Being back in our home facility, I am aiming for a small meet in October and November, with the possibility of also joining a Neptune hosted meet in Moon Valley. That's all coming together, so please stay tuned. Keep fingers crossed we can settle in with no changes to facility usage in the near future.
