All remaining Cumberland Valley High School pool sessions have been cancelled.
The club is sorry to announce that due to Cumberland Valley High School not waving their pool use fee as they’ve always done in past years, which is now costing the club slightly over $700 per session, the club will no longer be having pool sessions at Cumberland Valley High School.
This came as a surprise in the form of a bill from the Cumberland Valley pool to the treasurer of the club for the first couple sessions that have already happened, within the last day or so. Vern Graham had submitted the pool use fee waiver, as he has done in previous years, but it either wasn’t submitted or wasn’t accepted, but no one in the club was informed of the increase cost.
So the remaining pool sessions, including this Sunday’s pool session, are being cancelled due to this unsustainable cost. Efforts were made to try to secure more sessions at The Boiling Springs High School, but at this late date there are no more remaining dates until May which would be too late in the season for pool sessions. Next year we expect to schedule extra Boiling Springs pool sessions to make up for the loss of the Cumberland Valley High School pool sessions.
As a club, we are all very sorry to see this happen and sorry that the newer members will not have the benefit of the remaining pool sessions to continue working on their skills in the pool.
The Cumberland Valley school and the club have had a long relationship and everyone is sad to see it end. On a good note The Boiling Springs High School seems very receptive to scheduling more sessions next year.
