A few additional updates and reminders:

  • Record Breaker Report! The swim season flew by and maybe it was because our swimmers are moving at a record breaking pace!  More amazing news from this past week's championship meets. Swarthmore’s 12U medley relay team of Julia Parker, Anna Karpyn, Lyla Kelly and Julia Smirnova broke a team record with a time of 2:04.44. So exciting and congrats to this hard working team!

  • Attention All New Members! We are so excited to welcome our most new members in a single season!  To commemorate your first year at the pool, we have a small gift for you at the pool office.  Please stop by on your next visit to pick up your gift and welcome to the SSC! 

  • Access to Lawn Games in the Grove: Thanks to a few donations and purchases by Club, we have new games available to play in the Grove including a PING PONG Table (woo hoo!)  Stop by the office to borrow: Paddles and Ping Pong Balls, Bocce Ball, brand new Sand Bags for Cornhole, DIsc for Can Jam, and Slamball.  We do ask that all games be returned to the office when you are finished. 

  • Playground Improvements: The soon-to-be playground favorite, The Spaceball Climber, will be arriving soon at the SSC.  Please note that there will likely be a temporary closure of the large playground area when the equipment is installed. Also, the yellow, standing seesaw will be removed to make room for the new climber, so be sure to have the kids get their  last ride in soon. 

  • Lost and Found: Our lost and found area is set up next to the pool office. Be sure to stop by to claim your belongings.  Anything unclaimed will be donated or disposed of regularly. 

  • WiFi: Our WiFi has been recently upgraded and coverage will now cover the entire pool grounds.  Password: [email protected]! (case sensitive)
