The Community League Swim Program will remain on hold for the remainder of 2021.
As noted earlier, one of the primary delays for not being able to resume this program this Fall is the shortage of staff, in particular, the shortage of lifeguards. Efforts are ongoing to recruit, hire and train more lifeguards.
At this time, we do not have enough lifeguards to return to pre-pandemic operating hours in the pools, so the focus at this time will be to continue to offer as many public swim opportunities as possible. As noted in earlier messages, the amount of staff per shift will determine the amount of public that are permitted in the pool at a time
Any updates will be provided on our Website and Facebook pages.
