As our August newsletter told us, the annual meeting for the KWC is coming up: Sunday, Sept. 8th, 5:00 pm. We need you there--or at least a representative from your member unit! (Parliamentary procedures require at least one adult from 23 member households to attend.) We'll vote on next year's Board of Directors; we very much welcome new members to get involved with the Board. You can be on the Board without necessarily being an Executive Officer of the Board.
Bring a picnic or something to share and make a potlucky kind of day of it!
Just wanted to let the membership know that Fabio's NY Pizza has begun delivery service to the Key West Club! Their phone number is 872-0070, and we have menus at the Snack Shack. You can also view their menu online. We hope you'll choose Fabio's for your poolside pizza, so that they see the value in offering delivery service to us and continue to do it in the future!
The Key West Club follows local and national safety standards in regards to lightning. Our lifeguards are instructed to clear the pools and hot tub upon hearing thunder or seeing lightning, and these areas must remained cleared for at least thirty minutes following the latest sighting/hearing; no one can be in the water or near the edge of the pool.
As a member of the Key West Club, you can invite friends and family to join you poolside--all it takes is the purchase of a Daily Guest Pass or a Houseguest Pass. Daily Guest passes can be purchased individually ($5 per guest) or as a set of 10 (the "ten-punch pass," $35). Members must accompany their Daily Guests to the Club; please remember to pay your guest fees (or get your ten-punch pass punched) upon signing in at the pool.
Individual and group tennis lessons are available from local tennis teaching pro Tom Langford. Tom is PTR-certified in Junior Development with experience teaching at Glenmore Country Club; he has assisted some of the top local tennis coaches. He can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or 540-850-3979.
Tennis Lesson Rates
Tom's rates are on par with rates charged by area tennis professionals; we offer a discounted rate for children who are registered for the Junior Tennis Team.
We're pleased to introduce Tom Langford as our Head Tennis Coach. Tom writes, "I’m super psyched to coach the JTL team (Junior Tennis League), all the campers, and anyone looking to come out to the courts for a class or individual lesson! I’m relatively new to the tennis teaching scene in Charlottesville, but I am gaining experience rapidly. I teach the kids' clinics at Glenmore Country Club. I also help Alina Ackenbom teach at Camp Friendship, as well as Christopher Cubbage at the Charlottesville Catholic School.
Our secure online registration system is now available; please click the orange button to register your child for swim team! If you are a returning swimmer, your child(ren)'s information will merely need to be updated. Please feel free to choose the "Mail in payment" option instead of paying online via credit card, if you prefer!
The schedule below is subject to some minor changes, depending on how many participants we end up with. We are committed to coordinating our tennis and swim schedules so that kids can participate in both if they wish; thus there is a gap of 20-30 minutes between the end of a particular age group's swim practice and the start of that age group's tennis practice, so that kids can change clothes and get ready.
Practices are held M/T/W/F. Thursdays are match days; there is no practice on Thursdays except for the 5-6 age group.
8:45-9:15 am 5-6 year olds
