Chick Fil-A and Raft Night

Chick Fil-A and Raft Night

Bring family and friends to Commonwealth Swim Club this Wednesday.  Bring a raft and pick up your dinner.  What could be more simple?

Why heat up your kitchen to make dinner on a hot summer night when you can get dinner at the pool?

Order your Chick-Fil-A now for Wednesday's dinner.  Pick it up and pay for it at Commonwealth Swim Club between 5:30 - 6:00pm right before raft night (7/3).  Reserve your dinner before Tuesday night (7/2) at 7pm.  You must pre-order.  We do not buy extras.  Dinner includes one sandwich, chips and lemonade for $5.  Email your order to Susan Susanke at or call her at 703-426-5187. (Be aware, some people buy dinner and take it home too.  That is an option.)

Also, I need one person to help me out with this event.  If you are interested, please contact me at the above email or phone number.  Thanks.

See you at the pool!

Swim Lessons

Swim Lessons

Dear Commonwealth Families, 

My name is Julia Joyce and I am the manager of the pool. I know that many of you are interested in doing the NV Swim Kids lessons, so I just wanted to send out some information. 

The lessons will be group format if at least four participants in the same level sign up for the same session. 
  • The cost is $64.25 for one session. 
  • The lessons will take place from 10:00 to 10:30 am, and if need be a second session will be from 10:30 to 11:00 am (during the hour between swim practice and when the pool opens). 
  • Each session consists of two 4-day weeks (Monday-Thursday, with Friday as a make up day in case of inclement weather).
  • Half session lessons are available (one week) and cost $32.  
  • The lessons are taught by the guard staff at the pool who have all been trained in swim instruction. 
  • There will be one instructor per 5 children, and we will try to keep instructors the same throughout the session for continuity. 

If we are not able to get four children who are in the same skill level for the same session, we will offer semi-private lessons. 
  • Semi-private lessons consist of 2-3 students grouped together that have similar abilities (meaning we may have to combine levels, but it would be done within reason). 
  • Semi-private lessons cost $70 per session, and would be offered at 10-10:30 am. 

If morning lessons do not work for your family, we also offer private lessons. Any of the guards are able to teach private lessons. Please see the guard to set this up. 

The session dates are as follows:
  • Session 1: June 24 - July 5 (the last day of the session would be July 5th, a Friday instead of the 4th)
  • Session 2: July 8 - 18
  • Session 3: July 22- August 1
  • Session 4: August 5 - 8 (Session 4 is a mini session, consisting of only 1 week and will be offered depending on interest)

Since Session 1 is starting next week, please contact me ASAP about your interest, session preference, how many swimmers would be participating in lessons and a number at which I could contact you. 

I will be at the pool Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, you can email me at, or call me at 703-581-4510 (my cell). 

Your swimmers will also need to be screened so we can determine what skill level they should be placed in. If you could come by the pool in the next three days, we would be happy to do that for you. 
  • Payment must be made by check at least one day prior to the start of a session (you cannot pay Monday morning of the lessons). 
  • Checks should be made out to Julia Joyce, and can be dropped off at the Guard Desk at the Pool. 
  • Parents/Guardians of children in swim lessons must be members of Commonwealth Swim Clubto enroll in lessons. 

I look forward to hearing from you!

Commonwealth Cares - Fall Leaf Clearing Party!

Commonwealth Cares - Fall Leaf Clearing Party!

Broken Rakes from today's leaf clearing party!
40+ Commonwealth Swim Club members came out today to beautify the pool and grounds in our Fall Leaf Clearing Party.  All that Swim, Dive, and Masters practice must have paid off as five rakes were broken in the process (see photo below).  The 40+ folks cleared the pool, grounds, parking lot, and courts completely.  Although the leaves were relatively dry today, we estimate our members moved more than a ton of leaves in less than 2 hours!  Go Cudas!
