BTA pool update

Hello Everyone,

I hope you all are doing well! I just want to bring you up to date on our pool search since MJC’s facility is still unavailable. It’s been difficult to find a pool that fits our needs since school is starting and water polo is taking the majority of the time. We are still working with Modesto Schools District as well other facility’s. Hoping that one of them will become available to us until our pool get’s back up and going. The estimated time is about November or December. I would like to thank you all for your patience and loyalty to our club. I assure you that I’m taking this matter personal and doing whatever it takes to get our kids back in the water.

BTA pool update

After MJC pool’s accident on June 17, any groups’ ability to use the pool has been cancelled for an unknown time.  A meeting took place today with MJC and MCS.  Both groups are working together to make use of MCS pools to allow for MJC school classes and MJC Community Education’s classes to continue their scheduled programs.   In the interim time, Blue Tide Aquatics has been able to secure times with the Oakdale Aquatics team for BTA to use its pool during their hours while their classes are also being held.  We are grateful for Oakdale’s sharing of their pool times.

We started our group lessons on Monday, June 25.  Current swimming times are:

Seniors and Pre-seniors                             M-Th 6-8AM, F 5:15 to 7:15PM

Level 1                                                        M-Th 4:30 to 5:15PM

Level 2                                                        M-Th 5:15 to 6:15PM

Level 3                                                        M-F 5:15-6:45PM

We are working with Community Education to see if it may be possible to bring the classes back to an MCS campus while necessary repair and maintenance will be done to allow for the reopening of MJC’s pool in the future.

Refunding of classes may only be done through MJC – you will need to contact Community Education and talk with them.  During summer time, they are open Monday through Thursday.

If you have any BTA questions, please send an email to:  btaswimteam@gmail.com.

We will answer your questions as quickly as possible.  If you leave your name and phone number, we may be able to answer questions/concerns quicker and be able to field any/all questions you may have.

Thank you~
