A few additional updates and reminders:

  • Pool Hours and Lap Swimming Update: 

    • Swarthmore Swim Club will now close at 8 PM each night to ensure maximum visibility for our staff and members. 

      • For the month of August, the standard hours for use of all pools will be Monday - Friday 9AM-8:00PM. Saturday 10AM-8:00M + Sunday 12-8:00PM.  

      • 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. 

    • FYI: We are aware that there are more leaves in the pool this time of year. Our team will be working hard to keep the pools clear.  This may mean at times that we will need to clean while people are swimming.  This is in an effort to keep the pool open as many hours as possible for your enjoyment! 

  • 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. 

  • SSC Car Magnets: Want to show your SSC pride? We now have SSC Car Magnets for sale in the office/snack bar for $3 each. 

  • 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.
