SUMMER 2023 PRACTICE SHEDULE
HCHS notified all renters a week ago that the pool would be unavailable this summer due to re-construction issues with the new facility.
Since being notified with this information I have secured summer practice time with the 5 Seasons Family Sports Club located at
6901 S. Madison St., Burr Ridge, IL
It is only a couple of minutes from Central High
They have 2 - 1meter and 1 - 3meter boards in a separate well
Summer practices will begin June 5th and run through July and August
Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays from 7-9 PM
(No practices 6/19, 6/26 and 7/3)
THEY WILL REQUIRE A SIGNED WAIVER FROM EACH ATHLETE TO ENTER THEIR FACILITY
THAT WAIVER WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE AS WE GET CLOSER TO JUNE
It is my intention to use the Tuesdays and/or Wednesdays to plan a practice to
Meineke Pool in Schaumburg
This facility has 2 - 1meters, 2 - 3meters and 5, 7, and 10 meter platforms
pictures are on our CLUB TEAM page
this will not increase your dues and is totally optional
I am also working on trampoline training with a spotting rig to be available
on opposite Meineke days
On another note----Coach Peter's last day with us was last Wednesday.
Some of you may have noticed at the Regional meet that he was involved with
the organization of the judging panels for the meet
Peter is a certified FINA Judge and has gained a passion for these judging responsibilities
over the last year as he was increasingly traveling the country to judge meets
He wants to put a full time effort towards this so will have no time to coach moving forward
Any questions - please ask........

I, AND ALL POOL RENTAL GROUPS MET WITH HC ADMINISTRATION YESTERDAY
TO FINALIZE POOL SCHEDULING FOR THE 2022-23 SCHOOL YEAR
Our biggest obstacle is sharing time with Water Polo
I knew going in we would lose time in the negotiations
My goal was to maintain Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays
(I think I will play the lottery) - I'm happy to say we got exactly that!!
So, starting the week of Aug. 29th our schedule will be Mon. thru Wed.
at our same time - 7-8:30 PM - from now thru December 29th, 2022.
I have adjusted the calendar
Also - I have renewed our AAU Club Membership for 2023

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN FOR ATHLETE RENEWALS FOR 2023

HINSDALE CENTRAL ADMINISTRATION HAS SENT ME A NOTICE OF REPAIRS TO THE POOL
STARTING ON JULY 15TH, 2022!
These are repairs to the deck and tiles, so they have no indication to the length of time for the shut down. Obviously, work must be completed before Girls IHSA Swim & Dive begins, so my hope is we will be back in by early August
I have adjusted the fee schedule for July on the website to reflect reduced monthly dues!
You will see this choice on the pull down for the Club Team
If you already paid for July you can expect a refund!
I apologize for this, but had no knowledge of these plans prior to last Thursday
Thanks for your patience Everyone!

THIS IS THE BEST INDOOR DIVING FACILITY IN NORTHERN ILLINOIS, IF NOT THE STATE!
IT BOASTS 3 - 1 METER & 1 - 3 METER DIVING BOARDS
UNOBSTRUCTED BY SWIM LANES
THIS MEANS A 3 METER BOARD AT EVERY PRACTICE - NO TRAVELING ANY MORE!
THIS ALSO ALLOWS US TO GET BACK TO A FULL PROGRAM OF DRY-LAND AND
VIDEO DELAY TRAINING
THE FACILITY HAS AERIAL TRAINING EQUIPMENT OVER THE BOARDS
IT IS TRUELY A STATE OF THE ART FACILITY!!
WE CAN ALSO GET BACK TO A FULL AND CONSISTENT PRACTICE SCHEDULE
OF MONDAY THRU THURSDAY - DIVERS GET READY TO BE THE BEST YOU CAN BE!!!
WE WILL USE FRIDAYS TO GO TO MEINEKE POOL IN SCHAUMBURG
FOR THE INTRODUCTION OF PLATFORM - THESE PRACTICES WILL BE OPTIONAL
WE WILL START ON JUNE 6TH, 2022 FROM 9-11 AM MONDAY THRU THURSDAY
FOR THE SUMMER
OFFERING 5 DAYS OF PRACTICE PER WEEK WILL GIVE YOU THE OPPORTUNITY FOR MORE FLEXIBILITY TO MANAGE YOUR BUSY SCHEDULES
THIS IS A GODSEND!!!
