11-23-2016POOL OPENING DATE
Dear members,

We are happy to announce we are getting closer to the re-opening of our pool!

The city has advised that the final stages of work is being completed; the painting of the basin should be finished soon and crews are working seven days a weeks to get the pool open before the holidays. If the work continues smoothly, the pool will re-open the week of December 19th.

We will return to our pool once it opens and we will send you the revised schedule as soon as we are able.

We would like to thank you for your patience and hope to see you poolside soon!

Go Fins!


Nous sommes heureux de vous annoncer la réouverture de notre piscine ! La ville est à la finalisation des travaux de réfection et les travaux de peinture du bassin de la piscine sont en cours et en voie de se terminer prochainement. Si tout se déroule sans problème, la piscine sera ouverte dans la semaine du 19 décembre.

Nous serons de retour dès l'ouverture et vous communiquerons le plus rapidement l'horaire prévu avant la pause hivernale.

Nous tenons à vous remercier de votre patience et espérons vous voir bientôt aux abords de notre piscine!

Allez les Fins!

Best Regards,

Stuart Jack

11-19-2016DECEMBER SCHEDULE
Chers membres,

Nous nous excusons pour le retard de la mise à jour des rénovations de la piscine. Nous attendons toujours une confirmation de date de réouverture de la ville. Par contre il semble que nous serons définitivement chez nous au nouvel an (sinon avant). En vue de ce grand retour, nous avons révisé notre horaire de pratique temporaire et nous avons apporté quelques petites modifications à quelques groupes (Sénior, 4A, 4B, 3A, 3B) à partir du 6 décembre. Veuillez consulter l'horaire ci-joint et posez toute question à l'entraineur de votre enfant.

Entretemps, veuillez noter ce qui suit:

1. Nous sommes les hôtes de la rencontre régionale de décembre à la piscine de Pointe Claire le 17 décembre. Toutes les pratiques sont annulées ce jour là. Nous avons besoin du plus de bénévoles que possible!

2. Le club sera fermé pour les Fêtes du 24 décembre au 2 janvier – les pratiques recommencent mardi le 3 janvier.

Merci tellement de votre patience et de votre compréhension. Nous avons hâte de nous retrouver à la maison!

Sincèrement,

Le comité exécutif et l'équipe d'entraineurs

Dear Members,

We apologize for the delay in news of the pool renovations. As of now, we are still waiting for confirmation from the city on a reopening date. However, it looks like we will definitely be back home by the New Year (if not before). In preparation for this, we have revisited our temporary training schedule and made a few minor modifications to a few of the groups (Senior, 4A, 4B, 3A, 3B) beginning December 6. Please see the attached schedule and direct any questions you may have to your coaches.

In the meantime, please note the following:

1. We are hosting the December regional meet at the Pointe-Claire Aquatic Center on December 17. There will be no practices for all groups on that day as we will need as many volunteers as possible!

2. The club will be closed for the holidays from December 24 – January 2. Practices will resume on Tuesday January 3rd.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding. We can’t wait to be back home with you all soon!

Sincerely,

The Bluefins Board of Directors and Coaching Staff
