Opening ceremony

6 decades ago, it was the vision and drive of neighborhood families, the original 'Dads', that eventually led to a nationally recognized swimming program. 30 years later, it was head coach Richard Quick, he of Olympic coaching fame, who was the force behind the fundraising and construction of the current 50m pool. And now it was again a small group of determined individuals who would not allow the Dad's Club to perish when operations became severely impacted by the widening of I-10. Instead, the Dad's Club stands strong again with a new pool to serve the local community during the summer and to augment its aquatic services throughout the year.

The grand opening of the new pool took place on May 10, 2014. In the presence of Mayor Tom Ramsey, City of Spring Valley Village, the Dad's Club was honored to have Mrs Joan Spillane Postma cut the ribbon. Mrs Postma was a swimmer at the early Dad's Club and became its first Gold Medalist during the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome. Recently, she was instrumental in getting the Dad's Club recognized by the Texas Swimming & Diving Hall of Fame.

As soon as opening festivities were concluded, it was the kids' turn to test the new waters. Judging by their smiles and by the long lines formed at the diving board and Lilly pads, it became quickly clear how enthusiastically they approved of the new pool!
