PSA - Upcoming Salida Recreation Events and Classes for Week of September 26

PSA – 9/26/16

SALIDA HOT SPRINGS SWIM TEAM POTLUCK! Did you know the Salida Hot Springs Aquatic Center has its own swim team? We are counting swimmers’ collective miles by logging laps completed in the binder at the front desk. Our miles swam translate into travel miles on our way to our final destination - Lagos, Italy! We have already swam from the California coast to Hawaii, and have just arrived in Fiji—over 3000 miles. We are celebrating with a pool party, Wed., Sept. 28 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. It will be FREE and open to the public. We are asking guests to bring a tropical Fiji type side dish to accompany the roasted pulled pork the City of Salida is providing. The invitation is open to all age levels but, as is the pools safety policy, all non-swimmers must be accompanied in the water and within arm’s reach of an adult. All food must stay in the lobby area but we encourage folks to bring a swim suit; we'll organize some water games, if there is interest. Please RSVP to Laura or Lanette at 539-6738 or to [email protected] to plan for staffing, drinks and the main dish. The next leg of our final destination is to Australia. We encourage anyone that swims at least 1/8 mile (8 laps) to look for the log binder at the front desk and make those miles count!

PARENT/TOT SWIM! We know how important those early months and years are in developing your child’s likes, dislikes, fears and joys! Children just weeks old are brought to the pool so their parents can introduce them to the water. The feeling of buoyancy and weightlessness are similar to being in the womb and are both soothing and calming. We want all the young ones in our community to experience joy when being around water, so we have set aside a time each day just for them! Join us for Parent/Tot swim Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. During this time adult admission is $5 and under 5 years old is $2. We encourage parents to bring only children younger than 5 years old for this dedicated pool use time.

For more information on any of these programs, please visit or call Lanette at 539-6738.
