POCANTICO POOL

Message from the Directors

Dear Pocantico Hills Community, 

We are so excited that the pool will open for the 2021 season tomorrow, Saturday, May 29th, at 12:00 noon.  All members in good standing will be welcomed to enjoy some summer fun. We are sharing lots of important updates, rules, and information below which you should review with your entire family.  Be sure to check our website often for updates and information.

Lap Swimming: Early morning swim starts Monday May 31st between 6:00 and 8:30 a.m.

Swim and Dive Team: Our swim team will be led once again by Keri Gregerson,  assistant coach Kate Flynn, and the diving coach Jessie Cowles. Information Packets will be going out next week, please note that due to Health Department Rules there will be changes in the practice times - practice will be rescheduled to 4pm – 6pm.

We encourage swimmers and divers of all abilities age 5-18 years of age to join the team. Kids must pass the blue water test to be on the team. .

Swim Lessons: If you are interested in private lessons, please contact pocanticohillspool@rivertownaquatics.com. Lessons are 30 minutes each and cost $30.

Rules and Reminders:

  • We ask that everyone be patient, thoughtful and respectful of the rules. We are balancing Westchester County Department of Health guidance, CDC recommendations, and our own best judgement on behalf of the entire staff and membership.  
  • Masks should be worn when using the bathrooms. Masks will be required for children on the playground, at tennis clinics and camps. We will not know who is vaccinated vs. unvaccinated so we expect everyone to follow the relevant CDC, state, and local guidelines regarding mask usage for themselves and their family.
  • Bathrooms will be one family or two people in at a time. There will be no showers and we ask that changing rooms be avoided so bathroom facilities are available. 
  • The diving board will be open and social distance must be observed in line.
  • All rules, guidelines and procedures are subject to change at any time based on the School requirements. Modifications will be made as needed.
