Volleyball net

-----

Please add a volleyball net (either in the rec area or even in the tank - removable in both cases) that can be used for rec swim. Water volleyball is an amazing team sport that will get many DH members playing together and create a sense of comraderie. thanks for considering!

Music!

-----

It would be great to have music playing! Maybe mix up the type of music to appeal to all, everything from Oldies to classic rock, to 80s, 90s, etc. maybe people can submit their favorite Spotify lists! We have been to different pools with friends and it is always more fun with music.

Improve parking lot

-----

I think our parking lot has been relined several times and it is often difficult to determine where the car should actually go. Just a nice refresh would be helpful, especially in the early morning or evening.

PS on another note, thank you for doing this. The parking lot has been on my mind every season and I never quite know who to share that with since it’s not “urgent” but probably involves a significant amount of money. This is a perfect outlet.

Open the pool earlier

-----

Open the main pool earlier so that kids on swim team can stay and swim instead of waiting for the pool to open at 10, and other members can swim earlier as well. This might help some of the afternoon congestion too. Thanks for considering!

Magazine and paperback book exchange

-----

Just a thought that a corner of the covered deck might be used as a place for members to bring in magazines and/or paperbacks that they no longer want/need. "Take one/Leave one" could be the signage for the summer. Cheers, Marie Tibor

Pool passes

-----

I am the only person in my family who even somewhat regularly uses the pool, And even I don’t use it that often. So it’s becoming hard to justify the cost for our family. A friend told me that Overlee has a program where if you have been a member for a certain number of years you can pay a lower annual fee but only use the pool a certain number of times, and maybe you pay something for each time you use the pool. I think that sounds wonderful. Or maybe have a special price for smaller households or seniors? Or lap swimming only? I hope that is something that you will consider! Thanks so much

Music, updated pool games and another pool

-----

I believe I had heard there would be music at the pool this summer, but don’t see any news about it. I think it would be great to have music playing in the background (would probably need to be a mix) with strategically placed speakers.

The game room at the pool is quite a mess. It would be great to get updated ping pong tables in this space and get rid of the other stuff that overall looked broken (perhaps the foosball was ok, not sure). Maybe the paddles/balls are kept at the checkin desk (sign in / out) and get returned as soon as you stop playing to help keeps materials looking nice.

I believe there was a survey about another pool being built (so we could use the pool even during swim meets) but don’t recall seeing the results. I’m wondering if this was a strong yes and what the time frame might be?

Playground equipment for younger kids

-----

Interested in any improvements that make the pool more entertaining for the younger set, including a splash/fountain area and perhaps good quality playground equipment, such as Cedarworks playset.

Early bird Dive well for dive team

-----

Hello! I noticed that swim team members are welcome for lap swimming during early bird lap hours. However, dive team members do not have the ability to practice in the dive well those same hours. I wonder if this limits/hinders the ability (especially if our more experienced divers) to get enough practice, especially since we only have one board. (A second board would also be great!) At the very least, it feels inequitable for the same opportunity to access the pool for extra practice. Thanks for listening!

more shade umbrellas

-----

It would be nice to have a few more umbrellas in between some of the lounge chairs along the back fence of the deck. If you want to be in a lounge chair there are very few that are shaded and on the weekends it's impossible to get a spot in the shade.

Updated signage, etc

-----

The pool is great so far this year! Our family is so excited to be back. A few ideas:

Billing to family account for the Quack Shack - it would be extremely convenient (maybe too convenient?) if we didn't need cash for the snack bar or could pay in advance online like the guest passes.
Although, it is helpful for my kids to know exactly how much they can spend on a certain day depending on how much cash we bring. Regardless, the snack bar is a major highlight!

Updated signage - I have noticed that some new families don't know all the rules and the signs are confusing become some signs are accurate (lifeguards only on the bulkhead) and some aren't (no food and drink on the pool deck). It would also be helpful to send out a quick FAQ of the rules and highlights - it took me years to know where the lost and found was and that the foosball and ping pong tables were open to everyone (we thought that area was for staff only). It would be great if the game room tables were consistently stocked with paddles, balls, etc.

Little library or place where members can swap books and magazines in the off chance you get an opportunity to sit and read.

Babysitting directory/general bulletin board - we would love to know which teenage members are available for babysitting, dog walking, grass cutting, etc.

We would love to see the adult only crab night back, ice cream socials, kids' nights AND the family campout.

Small workout room would be a huge plus!

Lap lanes

-----

I know there is an active minority of folks that use the lap lanes, but on weekends and other particularly busy days one lane should be removed. The “open”’part of the pool is relatively small and if kids are using the basketball hoop it is even smaller. Opening up some space would be great!

Hooks in family bathroom

-----

Hello. Please put 2-3 hooks in the family bathroom so that people can hang up towels, dry clothes, wet clothes while changing themselves and their children. It's really hard to hold everything without dropping it on the floor while changing yourself or helping a child change. Many thanks, Alice

Holiday Guests

-----

I think we should no longer allow guests on holidays - Memorial, July 4th and Labor Day. My understanding is this is a rule at neighboring clubs. There were way too many people there today.

No lap lanes weekend afternoons

-----

Lap lanes should be closed from 12-5 on weekends. Folks have all week to swim laps, but kids and working parents only have limited time at the pool. Of course the pool on Memorial Day was crowded, but having 100 people cram into half the big pool while three lap lanes were being used by a total of 4 people was, quite frankly, embarrassing. And sure, the deepest lap lane was eventually eliminated to allow for more folks in the deep end, but that did nothing to expand the half of the pool where people could stand (should have eliminated the shallow lap lane), and the lap lanes were still only being used by 2-3 people. If we want to maximize family fun at the pool, which I think we all do, let's be more family friendly - close the lap lanes during the busiest pool hours so families and friends can have more of the pool to actually use. There are already dedicated lap lane swim times - how about some dedicated non-lap swim times?

Hi there,

APS has three upcoming early release days - June 8th, June 15th and June 17th. Would it be possible for the pool to open early on those days?

Thanks!

Parking lot paving

-----

It’s probably an off season project but any plans to pave the parking lot and re draw parking lines so people can see spots? 2 flat tires later (that could have come from many many places :)) it would be a great project for the list.

Thanks for all the amazing changes this season!!!

Master Swim

-----

It would be awesome to have a master swim program - either actively coached at a set time or even just the “curriculum” or drills of the day written up on boards for early bird swimming with options for different fitness levels.
