Swimming meeting This Tuesday, May 2

Posted on Apr 30 2017 - 11:34pm

 

 

Hey everyone!
 
This Tuesday, May 2, we will be having our meeting at the Upper Saint Clair Rec Center pool.  The address for those who don't know is 1551 Mayview Rd, Upper Saint Clair, PA 15241.  It will be from 7-9 pm.  
 
Everyone who is not a member will enter through the front doors and turn left through the lobby and you will be checked in as part of the troop 228 "party".
 
Everyone who is a member will enter and scan their card as they usually would and walk around to the locker room and then pool area.  Those that are members are NOT listed as guests to the "party", you are entering "on your own".  Once in the pool area, you can join up with everyone else though.
 
Some things to keep in mind...
  • Bring a towel!
  • They don't want us eating before we swim, but snacks are usually okay, as long as you eat them in the room, not the pool area.
  • Children under 48 inches will need to wear a life jacket and be with an adult in deep water.
  • You cannot use the hot tub or lap pool.
  • Certain toys are allowed while others are not, if you have any questions about what is and isn't allowed, please email me and ask.  (I'm a lifeguard at the pool, and know the rules well.)
If you have any questions, feel free to email me!  (ealtland99@gmail.com)
 
Otherwise, see you Tuesday!
