2017 Season Updates
Welcome to Woodcrest Swim Club's 60th Season!
We hope you had a great winter and are looking forward to spending your summer days at the pool! It's that time of year for your membership renewal, but first here are some updates:
Our biggest announcement, we are happy to introduce a new management team for 2017. Led by our new Manager, Mr. Jesse Lyman, we look forward to a productive and fun summer for our members, staff and guests. Jesse has pool management and operational experience, and brings forth an eagerness and ability to lead a strong team and run a smooth operation. His Assistant Managers are Mr. Steve Wehrle and Ms. Alexandra Ridinger, both of whom are school teachers and have experience in the swim community. The team is already hard at work getting acclimated to our club and we look forward to a great new season with them in place.
Swim & Dive Teams
Coach Emily Rollo returns for her second year with us! We welcome new Assistant Coach Jillian Bujanowski, also a successful collegiate swimmer. Our new manager Jesse Lyman is also taking on the role of Dive Coach. A graduate of Cherry Hill East, Jesse is an accomplished diver having competed four years at the NCAA Division 1 level at LSU and has 10 years of coaching experience. Read the coaches bio's here. We're excited to have them on deck!
Pools & Grounds
Numerous improvement projects are planned for this spring; such as a new outdoor Swim and Dive team area and team wall; building a walk up window at the snack bar; painting the main building and pavilion; additional landscaping; tree timming and more. There are some pool repairs that are needed, in addition to painting all 3 pools.
Social Activities & Parties!
Janet Hung and Jessica Walsh are hard at work putting the finishing touches on a summer filled with activities and events at the pool. Look for more details soon on upcoming events such as: a WRA Open House, an End of School Year Celebration, a WRA 60th Anniversary BBQ with cars from the 60's, an "Around the World" Adult Social, Flick & Float movie nights, Ice Cream Socials, Teen Night, and much more!
Board of Trustees
We welcome club member Pete Flamini to the Woodcrest Board of Trustees. Pete has graciously stepped in to fill a recent vacancy on the board. He brings a strong accounting background and skill set that will benefit the board and the club.
