Special Announcement: Summer of 2020
We would like to inform our families that given the various constraints related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Town of Kirkland has decided not to open Ecclestone Pool for the 2020 summer season.
The town of Kirkland released the following statement earlier today:
According to the National Institute of Public Health, the risk of transmission of COVID-19 in bathing areas concerns the close proximity to infected individuals, whether in or out of the water. The Town of Kirkland has an obligation to ensure the safety and security of young and old alike who take part in activities it provides or that take place within its territory and considers this goal to be unachievable in the current context.
While we are disappointed with the news, we look forward to the summer of 2021 which will hopefully return to the summers we remember. NAA has also cancelled all competitive events for the current season. We look forward to next year when hopefully swimming lessons, summer camps, water polo, synchro, diving and swimming events will run as always and we look forward to returning bigger and stronger than before.
Until we are able to gather again, we wish all our pool members and families a healthy and safe summer.
The Ecclestone Pool Committee
