Following last week’s CDC guidance, masking requirements have been lifted for folks who are fully vaccinated. We appreciate your cooperation on continuing to wear a mask if you are not fully vaccinated (or just feel more comfortable keeping that mask on!).
Fitness floor reservations are no longer necessary.
Beginning next week, we will be offering expanded hours, more lap swim sessions, longer water aerobics classes and family swim sessions, and responsible use of the locker rooms and showers for all users.
These modifications are subject to change and will be reviewed as we continue into the summer.
On Monday, May 24, the following changes will be implemented:
Club Hours Expanding:
Monday through Thursday: 6am — 7pm
Friday : 6am — 6pm
Saturday: 8am — 2pm
Lap Swim Changes + Additional Sessions:
We will add multiple lap swim sessions each day. Each lap swim session will now be 40 minutes long with 5 minutes of post-swim time to exit the facility. Please work together and be respectful of others’ personal space so that we can successfully move through these tighter transition times to allow for more swim opportunities for all members.
Water Aerobics Classes:
Morning and afternoon Water Aerobics classes will be lengthened to a full hour. The evening class will remain in the 45-minute format. In some cases, start and finish times will be changed–please refer to the schedule for new start times. The 60-minute class will be possible only with timely transitions after class. Please show us that you can get out of the pool and exit the Club in a timely manner to allow for the next group.
Family Swim Sessions:
Sessions have been extended to 90 minutes in length, and will include a reservation-only lane for Lap Swimmers of all ages.
Locker Rooms reopen for responsible, safe use:
Both men’s and women’s locker rooms will reopen for changing and showering for all Club users. We ask that you forego use of the locker rooms and showers whenever possible. A number of lockers per room will be available for unsecured cubby storage. (Locking lockers will be reintroduced at a later date.) Steam rooms and saunas remain closed at this time.
Looking ahead to continued reopening:
We look forward to reopening our saunas, steam rooms, and racquetball court, as well as expanding class capacity, as state guidelines permit. We hope that this will occur on or before June 30th and will keep you posted as we learn more.
We’re delighted to be expanding our offerings, and look forward to a continued safe and healthy partnership between members and staff.
