Past covid-19 member update notices

Copyright © 2020 Springfield Swim Club

To improve the safety in and around our pools, Kiddie Pool use is limited to members 6 years of age and younger. Members are reminded that our club rules require children in the Kiddie Pool be supervised by a parent or guardian and this person must remain within the confines of the Kiddie Pool boundary whenever their child is using the area. Supervising members should minimize personal distractions in the kiddie pool and stay focused on your child's safety. Remember that although the principle function of our lifeguards is to anticipate and react to unsafe conditions, you are responsible for the safety of your child and the guests under your supervision.

Dear Member Families,                                                                                                                                                 Update No. 7 for June 13th, 2020

We are truly excited to be opening our gate to members on Monday, June 15th.  We have shared a lot of the details already and I know you will take the time to review them before heading to the pool.  In support of that, I wanted to send one last note before opening day to communicate a few last minute reminders that will help ensure the season starts as smoothly as possible.

  • I will thank you in advance for your patience coming through the front desk and if direction by the staff on the grounds is required.  Please remember that we will be doing a lot of this for the first time Monday morning.  We recognize you are too.  Patience, respect, and courtesy by staff and members alike is essential to getting us back to an enjoyable summer routine.  We set that expectation with our staff this week and we will expect the same from our members beginning on Monday.

  • Links to the three most important documents for you to review before your first visit to the pool can be found below:

                  -  SSC Visitation Waiver
                  -  SSC Safe Re-Open Plan 2-Page Summary
                  -  POD Layout photo Summary  

  • We want to remind you that chairs will not be providedMake sure you bring chairs with you.  We will have a very limited number of chairs (10-20) available for our members who are unable to carry their chairs to/from their cars.  

  • Don’t forget that a signed waiver is required to enter the pool.  The waiver only needs to be completed once and can be found below.  You are encouraged to print and sign the waiver before you head to the pool for your first visit.

  • Masks are required to enter the pool.  Masks are also required when exiting the pool, moving about the pool deck, ordering at the snack bar, and using the bathrooms.  For the safety of our staff and members, we are asking you to take this requirement seriously

  • The staff is required to wear masks at all times except when on-stand supervising the water.  It is more important now than ever before to direct all questions or concerns to the manager on duty.  DO NOT APPROACH A GUARD ON STAND - SEEK OUT THE MANAGER.

  • The grounds have been visibly marked with 55 pods and will be available to members (up to 8) arriving together.  A link to photos of the actual pod layout can be found below.  A pod can contain members from different households as long as you arrive together as a group.  Once all 55 pods are full, the club will be considered at capacity until pods become available.

  • You can call the front desk at 610.544.7717 to check for space availability before heading down to the pool.

  • Members leaving the grounds must vacate their pod.  A trip to the parking lot is certainly acceptable but leaving for anything more than a five minute return to your car will result in your pod being cleared and available for waiting members.

  • Parents are always responsible for the actions of their children, especially considering the potential for a small child to wander into another family’s space. Parents need to be active managers of their children and ensure they understand and respect the safety of others at all times.  Parents and caregivers – not lifeguards – are responsible for ensuring their children social distance while in the pool.

  • All outstanding dues balances must be settled by July 1st 2020.

I am very pleased with how our planning and your feedback came together to form an executable plan that our board and staff sprinted to implement over the past two weeks.  I’m genuinely excited for you to see it and continue to welcome your constructive feedback as we continue to navigate through this somewhat uncharted territory.  Thank you for all of your support.  

                                                                                                                                                                             Best Regards,       
                                                                                                                                                                            Jeffrey Merlino
                                                                                                                                                                 President, Springfield Swim Club

The consumption of intoxicating liquors during normal operating hours jeopardizes the Club’s Charter, infringes on the rights of surrounding members to enjoy their Club, and poses a potential safety risk.  It is considered conduct detrimental to the reputation of the Club.  Any person bringing intoxicating liquors on the premises during normal operating hours will be removed from the property and their membership subject to suspension and/or termination.  Members are always accountable for the actions of their guests.

The SSC wants to talk with teens searching for worthwhile summer employment.  A lifeguard’s skill set carries forward to any career or life situation that requires decision-making, leadership, conflict resolution, and teamwork.  Candidates must be at least 15 years old and obtain American Red Cross Lifeguard, CPR, First Aid, and PA Act 153 certifications.  We can help guide you through those.  You can obtain more information by emailing questions HERE or visiting the “BOARD & STAFF” section of our website.
