April Practice Sign-Up

For families who are new to the club, Hillcrest Pool closes for 4 weeks in April for their annual scheduled pool maintenance. This year, Hillcrest Pool will be closed from April 1st to April 28th, 2019. To accommodate for this lengthy closure, the club will operate as usual during Spring Break. We have also managed to secure limited pool times at other facilities (Jewish Community Center-JCC and Kerrisdale Community Center-KCC) for the month of April so our swimmers can keep up with their swim workouts. The swim times for April do no match the current schedule that we have at Hillcrest so everyone will need to sign up for different practice sessions for the month of April.

Notes:

  • Please note that this temporary schedule is only effective from April 1st to April 28th.
  • The last session at Hillcrest Pool prior to the pool closure will be Sunday, March 31st.
  • The practices on Sunday, April 7th, from 8-10 AM, are cancelled in lieu of the Swimathon at Kerrisdale Pool.
  • Practices will run as scheduled on Friday, April 19th and on Saturday, April 20th. On Sunday, April 21st practices are on between 8-10 AM only.
  • You will return to your regular practice schedule at Hillcrest Pool on Monday, April 29th.
  • The online registration system to sign up for your April practice sessions will open on Friday, January 25th @ 9pm and close Sunday, March 31st.
  • After 9pm on Friday, January 25th, you can sign up for April practices (link will be provided by email). Please note that each swimmer can sign up for a maximum of 2 practices a week. There is a fee of $250 if you sign up for more than 2 practices.
  • Refer to the table below for the April Practice Schedule.

Parents should note that in order for swimmers to access the pool during their practices they may be asked to provide proof of PNSC Membership.

Swimmers must follow all pool regulations, such as:

  • Swimmers may not swim outside their normal practice time without providing payment for community centre use.
  • Parents must pay if they wish to swim at the pool. Any breach of this rule may result in the cancellation of their children's membership

Also, please note the following:

  • The club does not assume any responsibility for lost items; therefore swimmers should not bring valuable items to practices.
  • Parents are expected to wait until their children are in the water before leaving.
  • The club does not assume any responsibility for a swimmer's safety or security before and after practices.
