Woodbury pool to remain closed for rest of the 2018-19 school year

SHSH Members,

Unfortunately, the Woodbury pool has sustained significant damage from a power outage last week.  As a result the Woodbury Elementary School pool will not re-open this school year, so that repairs can be made.  

The Shaker Sharks will have the following schedule changes as a result.  On one hand, we are so fortunate to have (2) indoor pools within the same community, that will significantly help minimize the inconvenience.  We understand however, that the new schedule may negatively impace some of our members.  Please contact the swim team office (swimteamoffice@shakerswimming.org or (216) 295-4163) if you have concerns or questions.  Please contact your swimmers coach, if your questions are solely practice timing based.  They would best be able to help come up with some alternative options.  

Listed below is the schedule we will follow for the remainder of the school year (through June 5, 2019 *Sr & Master group exceptions and schedule exceptions due to meets).

No Gold or AG practice on Saturday 4/27 due to Time Trials at the Middle School.  

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
