• Email Newsletter – Mon Mar 8, 2021 (part 2 of 2) (MJCC – specific)

    Hi all,

    I have had a few confirmations today for x. I know there are a lot more of you who said MJCC was an option for you. I need know exact dates so I can reserve a spot for you. We can only get about 12-18 swimmers in at one time depending on how many older swimmers we have who an social distance in their lane.

    For all locations – You must reserve your time with me by email or text. First come first serve! 503-319-4523 cell or swimforfun2002@yahoo.com
    Remember to come with your suit under your clothes and wearing a mask. Bring a zip lock to put your mask in while in the pool. It will be at the side of the deck. Put your name on the zip lock.

    Here is more information about the MJCC:
    The sign in the front of the building says Schnitzer Family Center. The sign on the building itself says Middleman Jewish Community Center. Kids will enter at the doors on the right side of the front of the building. Dave and I will arrive 15-20 min early to collect registrations and to make sure waivers have been signed. <See waiver link here>. At this point, I only have (5) waivers. It is super easy to do and takes about 1 min.
    Once we have your waivers and temp checks done we will proceed inside and go down the stairs and into the pool. There are changing rooms for using the restroom only.
    The pool will be one direction only around the deck. Kids will put their personal belongings on a chair during practice. You will need your equipment bag and water bottle with you at poolside.
    There are (2) on deck showers for a rinsing shower before entering the pool.Coach will give you lane assignments each day dependent on who is in attendance. PST/ AG1 will be (2) to a lane starting at either end of the pool. AG2/SP/S will be up to 3-4 per lane and will be staggered to start 6’+ apart . Colored cones will be place on deck to help maintain social distancing.When practice is finished, kids will climb out and put their mask on immediately, go to their chairs and dry off, put their towels/clothes/parkas etc. and leave the building the same way they came in.Parents will need to be at the pool at the end of practice. Parents of any 2 and Under who made need assistance may come in and help them. You will need to fill out the waiver and go through the same process as the kids to come into the building.

    Please don’t hesitate to email or text me for any information!I’m so excited to see you all!!!

    Hi all,We are very close to getting back in the pool. It is up to you to let me know if you will be participating. I have had several people let me know what they are up to but many I have not heard anything from. I hope you are ok! Please let me know one way or another!!!
    We are looking into pool time at Middleman Jewish Community Center and North Clackamas Aquatic Park. I need to get a hard number on how many swimmers would be attending each of these locations. I would like to go back to the monthly fee structure. If you are only participating one time per week you can still pay $15 drop in fee. The pools that I have been in contact with are charging $140 (NCAP) and $150 (MJCC) per hour. I am waiting to hear back from Bay Club for weekends, also, at $150 per hour. This Schedule would start next week. I do need a significant number team to return so that I don’t bankrupt myself:(
    Practice updates:
    These would be potential times:
    MJCCMon 7:15-8:15pm, possibly adding 8:15-9:15pm if more demand
    Tue 7:15-8:15pm, possibly adding 8:15-9:15pm if more demandWed 7:15-8:15pm, possibly adding 8:15-9:15pm if more demand (or NCAP)

    NCAP(Wed 8:15-9:15pm) Dryland 7:30-8pm outside (Depends on which pool has most interest between MJCC or NCAP)
    Thu 8:30-9:30pm
    Fri 8:30-9:30pm
    Bay Club (no bathrooms or showers)
    Sat 2-3pm (Maybe later depending on availability) possibly adding 3-4pm if more demand
    Sun 2-3pm (Maybe later depending on availability) possibly adding 3-4pm if more demandLOHS Pool- No word to when we can start using this pool. We may need to get an email campaign to get back into that Pool. I have sent many emails but I am a West Linn resident. It will probably take LO residents to email to make a difference.
