Construction Update

posted Aug 7, 2015, 10:37 PM by DCST Webmaster   [ updated Aug 7, 2015, 10:38 PM ]
Many of you have probably driven past the facility and seen the construction progress. The indoor pool building is almost down. We have been grateful to everyone for the good spirit, encouragement, patience, and even the treats and cold drinks you have delivered while we are all displaced.

Good News! We are all back at The Dad's Club on Monday morning at 5:30am as planned. However, demolition will continue and we do have some safety related changes that you need to know.

Next week (August 10-16)--Starting on Monday
  • Please follow all directions by safety staff. Use caution, watch your children, look for signs and cones. 
  • We will have no phone service or internet. So, please contact us by email and we can call or email you back.
  • The locker rooms, gym, offices, and 33yd pool will remain closed due to the proximity to the remaining demolition.
  • The driveway and east (back) parking lot will be open only between the hours of 3:45pm-9pm. Handicapped parking will remain by the pools but on the northside of the parking lot.
  • From 5:30am until 3:45pm all cars will park by the pool.
  • The 50m pool will be open at 5:30am Monday morning and is configured short course. (It is closed this weekend)

What does this mean for ME?

Swim lessons
  • No changes for morning classes.
  • Afternoon families must park in the rear (east side) of the facility. No upfront parking 3:45pm-9pm as the parking lot will convert to dropoff and pick up only. Consider dropping off older children.

  • Gym and locker rooms are closed. Use the new bathrooms by the family pool and outdoor shower.
  • Morning water aerobics class is unchanged.
  • Recreational swimming hours are unchanged but no upfront parking from 3:45pm-9pm (park in back)
  • Lap lanes are available with at least two lanes open in the 50m pool to members at all times. Parking before 3:45pm will be extremely limited with only 15 spaces in the west lot by the pool. Please do not park on Voss or the neighborhood streets.
Masters and TriSwim
  • 11:30am practices resume at the Dads Club with limited parking.
  • Masters (M-TH) and TriSwim (MWTh) resume at Dads Club at 7:15pm on regular days.
  • Morning TriSwim (TuF) participants will resume coached practices when school starts onAugust 24th. You are welcome to use lap lanes in the mornings or attend any scheduled Masters or TriSwim workout.
Swim Team
  • All training groups will resume Fall Schedule that is posted on the website with the exception of Senior and Senior Elite. Senior and Senior Elite will be swimming at The Dads Club but will be contacted by coaching staff and given temporary training times and parking arrangements.
  • We encourage all parents to use the drop off and pick up. Please do not use cell phones in the parking lot and follow the directions of the safety staff. 
  • Administrative staff will be on the pool deck from 4-5:30pm Monday and Tuesday to speak with any swim team parents who have registration or swim team questions. 
  • Reminder to all: please do not speak to coaches on deck while they are coaching. Email is the best method of communication.
Please let me know if you have any questions or need clarification.
Thank you again for your support....You are going to love the changes in store for The Dad's Club!

Have a great weekend,
