This year we have a new pool committee and some new ideas that we’re excited to implement for the new season! Concessions! Ever been at the pool and were just dying for something to drink? Well, we’ve got you covered this year (well on Saturdays). On Saturday mornings, different committee groups within the neighborhood will sell small concessions at the pool to benefit that committee. We’ve always heard families want snacks/drinks at the pool so this will be a trial to see how it goes and whether we should expand it. The goal is for everything to be $1 to make it easy. Feel free to give us some feedback as you visit the concessions table! Swanky Sign In Shade Structure Last year was the addition of the sign-in table and everything looked pretty temporary. This year, we’ve upgraded the shade structure and the sign in experience. Thanks for making this adjustment last year a breeze! Lap Lane In the last couple of years, there’s always been a designated lap lane but sometimes it’s hard to find because it moves during swim team practices or group lessons. This year there will be added signage to make it easier! Residents shouldn’t play in this lane as it’s for lap swimming only. Enjoy those workouts! What’s with the line? You might notice a new line surrounding the pool painted on the pool deck. In past years, when guards called for a 10 minute break, there has been confusion as to what that meant; could kids sit on the sides with their legs dangling, sit on the stairs, etc.? This year we are aiming to clear all confusion by adding a line to the pool deck similar to many other neighborhoods. When the guard calls for the 10 minute break, all residents under 18 years of [...]

Did you know we have a Community Garden? The Garden Club has been busy and we are now harvesting from our early spring planting. You can join today and enjoy fresh vegetables this week. The fee and time commitment are nominal, and you'll have the opportunity to meet new neighbors. All the summer favorites are in the ground, but we need at least 25 families in the Garden Club to secure our water hookup. Here's how to join: http://www.kittscreek.com/about/meet-the-committees/community-garden-club/
The much anticipated wait is over, the pool opens this Saturday May 19th at 9am!
As you know, we have been working on making significant improvements about how the pool operates this season. One of those enhancements is offering group swimming lessons from TITAN Swim Academy, led by a gifted teacher and elite level athlete. The ability to swim and be safe around water is a valuable life skill for anyone so opening those opportunities here at our pool this season is important. There will also be opportunities for private lessons. How to initiate those and why using Kitts Creek swim team coaches has advantages over outside instructors will be covered in a separate email. These lessons are open to all residents of Kitts Creek. Kitts Creek Titans 1 Lessons Ages 3 to 6! $75 for every four lesson session, more information found in details of signup June Lessons - Lessons will occur June 11th – 22nd July Lessons - Lessons will occur July 9th – 20th August Lessons - Lessons will occur August 6th – 17th Kitts Creek Titans 2 Lessons Ages 7 to 12! $75 for every four lesson session, more information found in details of signup June Lessons - Lessons will occur June 11th – 22nd July Lessons - Lessons will occur July 9th – 20th August Lessons - Lessons will occur August 6th – 17th Questions?

The International Food Festival needs more neighbors willing to provide a dish (either homemade or store bought) for the tasting festival. For more information on the event, please click here.
Since late last year the Kitts Creek Pool Committee, Killer Whales Swim Team Board and KC Board of Directors have been planning for a safe and fun pool season in 2018. Kitts Creek is now fully built out with 845 homes. Accordingly, based on increased use and resident feedback, this year’s pool management contract significantly increases the life guard coverage at the pool. In addition, the Pool Committee, Swim Team and Board have updated the rules & services to help ensure a safe, relaxing and fun environment for all. We have worked closely with the pool management company and have also researched best practices from other pool operations. The pool opens on Saturday, May 19. Between now and then, look for further updates on hours, revised rules and improvements mailed out this week.
The Kitts Creek International Food Festival was a first in 2017 but was met with such rave reviews that we’re doing it again this year! From the feedback received last year, we’re going to tweak and add to our plans for this year. Last year, the event was held inside the Clubhouse and was elbow to elbow. This year, weather permitting, we’re going to use the back parking lot of the clubhouse (near the playground) so we can spread out a bit, the kids can play, and we can all enjoy some delicious foods from around the world. And, big news for those who provide food or beverage! Last year, those who provided an item for tasting barely had time to run around and taste things for themselves. This year, all who provide an item for tasting will get a private pre-tasting before the event is open to the neighborhood! How awesome is that?! If you’re interested in participating or attending the International Food Festival, we need to get a headcount so we can plan. • Register to provide a food or beverage (you don't have to make it yourself, can be store bought) • Register to attend the event We look forward to seeing many Kitts Creek neighbors out at the food festival this year!
