      • Lap Swimming only time will continue to be available Monday-Friday 6:30AM-9AM. Please note early morning lap swimming may be limited to the lap pool only due to staff availability. 

  • 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 next week at the SSC! Please note that there will likely be a temporary closure of the large playground area when the equipment is installed starting on Monday, August 9th. 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 this weekend. 

  • 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)
