On days of Wednesday home swim meets, the pool will remain open after 5:00pm only to swim team members and families, spectators, and volunteers in order to allow for set-up and for the swim meet itself. In addition, the pool may open later than normal on days with Saturday home swim meets. All members are invited to watch, cheer, and help with the swim meet in any capacity. ​​ 

Each additional child's fee is $5 less than the previous until the 5th. The fee is only required for the first 4 children per family.
