Opening Update - 06/06/21

UpdatedSunday June 6, 2021 by Board of Directors.

Hello Red Hook pool members and friends,

We wanted to update you on some exciting things happening at the Red Hook Pool! First, thank you for your continued support over the very challenging 15 months! We’ve had to navigate a lot of requirements related to COVID-19 from the county, state, and federal levels, and we appreciate your continued patience and support.

The good news is that because things seem to be opening up more, we plan to open this season without the membership “reserved slot” system. We will open for our members for the season from 12:30-8:00 on June 25th. Prior to this, we will be open for members on June 19/20 from 12:30-6:00 pm, and evenings June 21-24 from 6:00-8:00. We will not have free community days this year. The times published here are for members only. While we are operating, we still need people to be conscious of social distancing, and we will require mask wearing for unvaccinated individuals on our pool deck, in our pool building, by the snack bar, and when social distancing isn't possible. COVID is still a threat, and we want to keep our pool family safe!

PLEASE NOTE: Because we are planning on opening more regularly this summer, we will be increasing our family membership rate beginning on June 12th to $395. The current rate of $300 is valid until June 11th (consider that our early bird rate), but beginning on June 12th, you will see the increase in our membership rate. So, join today, if you haven't already!

If you are a lap swimmer, we are keeping our reservation system for our designated lap swimming times. You can pay $10/session to reserve a lane or the $200 for the season to sign up and swim. We will have 1 lane open during our regular hours for our members to swim, first come, first served.

Additionally, we are still taking reservations for our swimming lessons, which will continue to be offered as 1:1 lessons for 8 weeks this summer. Swimming lessons are for children ages 3 and above. For our younger swimmers, we just added our baby/toddler swim back into our aquatic programming! For those swimmers 9 months to their 3rd birthday, you can come and enjoy the pool too, with your adult! The baby/toddler program will be offered in three- 2 week sessions, and will meet Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 12:00-12:30. Each two-week session is $125. Adults are required to be in the pool with their child and the class is lead by one of our pool staff. It is now listed in our registration system.

And, finally, don’t forget about our Sea Raiders swim team! We are accepting reservations on our system for our Sea Raiders swimmers, also. They will begin practicing again in the coming weeks. The cost for Sea Raiders is $150/swimmer.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at redhookpool@gmail.com. As always, we are looking forward to an amazing (and safe!) summer. Stay safe and we’ll see you soon!
