The Town of Trophy Club is excited to announce the Community Pool is set to have a one day only soft opening on Saturday, June 13 followed by the summer season opening on Saturday, June 20. Due to precautions around COVID-19, the delay will allow for extra time to hire and train seasonal personnel on current health recommendations in addition to allowing time to prepare the facility to meet current safety guidelines. Though a few weeks late with a delayed opening, staff is taking extra precautions to help our community stay safe and healthy. We are looking forward to spending the summer with Trophy Club families at the Community Pool.
While the Competition and Kiddie pools prep for opening, patrons, and swimmers are still expected to follow social distancing guidelines. This creates a challenge for swim instructors, since teaching someone how to swim is a very hands-on activity involving a great deal of physical contact. This is especially challenging for beginners or pre-school swimmers who cannot support themselves independently in the water. In this case, social distancing between instructors and swimmers could lead to preventable water emergencies.
Unfortunately, for this and other logistical reasons, there will be no swim lessons offered for the 2020 pool season. However, the Aquatics staff will be releasing a video series on basic water skills throughout the summer. The videos will focus on beginner and intermediate level swim technique and will include water safety topics. They will be available to the public and will serve as a guideline for parents looking to teach their own children at home.
