Dear Rockbrook Pool Families,
On behalf of the entire Board of Directors, we welcome you and your family to the 2018 Rockbrook Pool season! The pool will officially open on Friday, May 25, 2018, at 1:00 p.m. We’ve planned a wonderful year full of fun, family-friendly activities. And, as always, we will continue to offer lap swimming and our Division A Champion Swim Team.
There are many improvements you’ll notice this season designed to make your summer experience with us the best it can be. Please review all the information below to make sure you’re in the know. In addition, be sure to Like Us on Facebook!
All member dues will be processed through the payment gateway, ACTIVE, a secure site that makes registration a breeze. If you are a returning member, your log in information from last year should still be valid. New members will need to create a new account. In order to avoid a $25 late fee, all 2018 memberships must be paid by noon on Monday, May 14, 2018 at noon. When you renew, please upload a family picture to your ACTIVE account. We ask that you memorize your bond number so your account is easily accessed upon your arrival. This will expedite your check-in process. Everyone will be required to sign-in to gain entry into the pool. Our goal is to help eliminate stress for you when you visit and help deter those who do not pay their guest fees. Last year alone we collected more than $5,500 in guest fees.
Being a member at Rockbrook Pool is more than just swimming. We take pride in our sense of community and keeping everyone involved throughout the summer with a variety of activities. To help you pre-plan for an exciting summer, we have a calendar of events*. This includes regular family nights, adult socials, member appreciation, grill nights, movie nights and so much more. Check out our calendar of events and start planning your summer now. *Note some events are tentative (pending volunteer participation). Click here for our events.
Worker Weekend, Saturday, May 5, 2018
To receive a $75 rebate on your membership fees, you can either work an 8 am – 12 pm shift or the 1 pm – 5 pm shift. Spots are limited and you will need to work an entire 4-hour shift to receive the $75 rebate. Refunds will be processed through your ACTIVE account by July 1, 2018. To ensure the safety of everyone, we ask that you please not bring children under the age of 15 to Worker Weekend. (Rainout date, if needed will be Sunday, May 6th). You must register for Worker Weekend and you can do so here.
If you wish to relinquish your bond, please notify the pool in writing/email by May 31, 2018 to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not provide notification by May 31st of your intent, you will be responsible for the current year’s dues and maintenance fees.
The Annual Members Meeting will be held on Thursday, April 26, at 7pm at Rockbrook Elementary, in the Library. This year we need to elect three new board members. If you know someone who would be a great fit for our Board, please nominate them by April 24! The new term begins in October but we encourage those newly appointed to start “shadowing” existing Board Members so they will have a feel for the processes and procedures before their 3-year term begins. Please register to attend the annual meeting!
Help Us Keep Dues Affordable
We hope you help us increase the membership of the pool by encouraging your friends, family and neighbors to join the pool this year! Our current membership includes families from across Omaha, not only families in the pool’s “backyard”. A strong increase in membership will allow us to maintain our affordable pricing structure and the pool.
Rules & Regulations
Please read all of the pool’s Rules and Regulations and make your children aware of those guidelines as well. Among the basics, those families with small children will need to provide your own reusable swim diapers or you can purchase them at the pool.
Sneak Peek & Swim Team
Sneak Peek night and Swim Team registration will be May 18th, 6:00 – 7:30 pm at Rockbrook Elementary Gym. Drop by, say hello, meet the coaches, and learn more about Swim Team. Please complete the online Registrations Forms prior to coming to Sneak Peek, along with your payment, cash or check only. (Or pay online with your membership.) Families are encouraged to attend to register, purchase shirts, swimsuits, goggles, etc… meet the coaches, and sign up for volunteer activities.
Gazebo and/or Pool Rental
With summer right around the corner, it’s not too early to place your reservation for either a Gazebo rental for that special birthday party or family function. Or if you are planning a bigger event , members can rent the entire pool. Is someone having a sweet 16 or a summer family reunion? Contact us at email@example.com to reserve your date and time. More details and pricing available here.
To keep your family informed of fun family events, early closures and special activities, visit our website, Like our Facebook page, and sign up to receive e-mail news and announcements!
We look forward to a fun and productive season! Again, if you have any questions, concerns or would like to join the Board, please come to the Annual Meeting on April 26th. See you at the pool!
