TOKENEKE WARRIORS: Swimming, Diving and Water Polo

 

                                                                                    

On behalf of the 2017 Beach and Pool Committee, welcome to another wonderful summer at Tokeneke. Beloware updates from the pool deck and information about our swim and aquatics programs.

We welcome our newest members and invite you to join us poolside for the many events and activities plannedfor this summer.

Please remember that all youth members need to take a swim test before they can swim unattended. Lifeguardswill keep a list of the swimmers who have passed and those who have not. Those children who have not passed the swim test are considered non-swimmers. Non-swimmers must have a parent within arm’s length of them while they are in the pool. As always, swimmers under 8 need to be accompanied by an adult on the pool deckregardless of whether or not they pass their swim test.

If you have any questions, feel free to stop by the aquatics office and speak with a member of the staff, or contact the Swim and Pool Chairs, Kerrie Kelley and Kate Lyons
