Our pool season kicks off this Saturday! The Social Committee has some fun things planned - more about that soon. And there is a new program for kids at the pool: KC Kickers! Follow the link below to be familiar with everything everybody needs to know about using and having fun at our pool. The format is new and much easier to follow! Updates include details on KC Kickers, clarification on floats to avoid the confusion from last year, and an additional lifeguard during busy times. Also, we have already had a few requests to allow some kid Creekers to be entrepreneurs and set up stands at the pool. In order to provide a way to do this that is fair to everyone while keeping it organized, we have set up some provisions and boundaries to accommodate all pool goers. 2019 Pool Rules Parents, please read through this update and help your kids understand how to cooperate to have a great season! You'll notice our new umbrellas providing more shade options at the pool. As you know, the mister idea did not pan out due to the kind of material used to build our pool house. We are busy planning the slide for the 2020 season and will be adding our ADA lift during that installation as well. Send any questions to us via Carlie (firstname.lastname@example.org) or use the Contact page on our website: http://www.kittscreek.com/contact/ Thank you!

We are mere weeks away from opening the 2019 KC Pool Season! This is the second in a series of announcements to get ready for the pool opening. Last time, we announced the new water safety program that will provide wristbands to Kid Creekers based on passing swim proficiency tests. See that information and requirements for parents and kids here: Previous Eblast We asked for your input on what to call this program - thanks to everyone who submitted votes and suggestions. We are calling it KC Kickers! To help kid Creekers who need help to improve their water skills and pass the KC Kicker test to earn a wristband, today we are announcing this year's schedule for the TITANS Swim Academy. **Reminder: TITANS provides swimming lessons at our pool and has nothing to do with the Killer Whales Competitive Swim Team. Details on criteria, times, and how to sign up can be found here: TITANS Schedule Next week we will send out the last pool opening announcement which will highlight Rule and Procedure changes for the 2019 Season and some reminders about KC Pool operations. The 2019 Pool Rules will be included in full. Parents, please plan to read these and review them with your kids before opening day. Last, yes - the pool had an issue this week with a circuit breaker that caused the chemicals to be unbalanced and it turned green. Luckily, that happened prior to opening and fixing it won't cause any inconveniences for pool goers! Please contact Carlie with any questions. Thank you! Kitts Creek Board of Directors
In the pool packet we all received last spring, the pool closing time shows a change from 9 PM to 8 PM at the beginning of August. This is an adjustment due to sunset being earlier and earlier as the season concludes. As you know, our pool does not have the necessary lighting for evening hours. There was some confusion these last few days because our previous management company didn’t properly communicate with TA last fall, resulting in them unknowingly not being on the same page about the date of this change. Everything was worked out yesterday and the original hours stand: for August and September, the pool closes at 8 PM. Other hours remain the same: adult lap swim is 6 AM – 9 AM and the pool opens at 9 AM. The last day of the season is Sunday, September 16th.
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 [...]
