WOODLEY SWIM & DIVE MEET SEASON BEGINS SATURDAY

The Woodley Swim & Dive Meet Season begins this Saturday with Woodley hosting Holmes Run Acres for Time Trails.  Although Time Trials starts well before the pool opens, it is one of the longer meets of the season and will go beyond the regular opening time of 11:00.  The Baby Pool will be open at 11:00 but the main pool will not be open until the meet is complete, which is anticipated to be about 12:30.

During June and July, the pool will periodically be opening late or closing early for Home Swim and Dive Meets.  The dates, times, and what parts of the Woodley facilities are open and closed will be posted outside the pool and on the bulletin board by the front desk, included in the “almost-weekly” Woodley News, and posted to the Woodley Facebook and Twitter Accounts.

Finally, feel free to come out and cheer on the Woodley Warrior Swimmers and Divers throughout the season!  While there, stop by the concessions area under the Pavilion for a snack or a meal.  Proceeds help support the teams.

LAST CALL FOR WOODLEY SWIM & DIVE TEAMS

It is not too late to join the teams, but after June 12, it will be too late.  Not sure or have questions?  Reply to this email or stop by the afternoon practices this week and talk to the Team Reps, Coaches, or other parents.  For safety reasons, please ask questions to the Coaches between age group practices.

GETTING CAUGHT IN THE ROPES - IT ISN'T PRETTY

It is once again time for the annual reminder  to enter and exit the pool deck only at the designated areas by the foot showers.  Although it may seem tempting to go over the ropes, here are a few reasons not to do it:

Number 1: It is a violation of the Fairfax County Water Recreation Facilities Ordinance.  The ropes and foot showers are required by the county to keep contaminants out of the pool water.  We are visited regularly by the County Health Inspector, so please don’t be a walking violation.

Number 2: It prevents wear and tear on the lines.

Number 3: It discourages our younger members from making the mad dash straight for the pool.

Number 4: And last, but certainly not least, it prevents those embarrassing moments and associated injuries when you don't quite make it over the line or someone else pulls the line at the same time you try to climb over.  D’oh!

If you see someone crossing the lines, please take the time to remind them to use the designated entries.  Also, please do not hang towels or other items over the lines.  Although the lines may seem like great spots for drying out those items, they block visibility of the pool and also unnecessarily put wear and tear on the lines.

DIVING BOARD REPAIRS

The repairs to the second diving board should be completed this week, if all goes well.  Thank you for your patience while only one board was available.

GIANT FOOD GIFT CARD FUNDRAISER

You can support the pool through our ongoing Giant Food Grocery Card fundraiser.  Place your order on the Woodley Website, or call Carol Ofiesh at 703-641-0729.  Cards are available in $100 denominations.  For every $100 card purchased, Giant Food donates $5 to Woodley Pool.  The money raised through this program helps keep rates low and provides for many of the extras around the pool.  Also, a quick thanks to Carol for continuing this program!
