Looking forward to the Summer of 2016!
Greetings Fairlawn Swim and Tennis Members,
As the days become warmer and longer, we are busy dusting off the cobwebs and getting the Club ready for another summer of activity. Here is some information we would like to relay to you before the season begins.
*** STAFF UPDATE ***
We have a new Assistant Club Manager as Carl Shallenburger has decided not to return this year. John Nauer will now assist our returning Manager, John Conner. Many of you may remember John from previous years. He is excited and energized to be back at our Club. Please take time to introduce yourself to John when you see him on duty.
Emma Round will be returning as our Head Swim Team Coach. She will be assisted by Claire Hardman, Tatum Carlson, and Sam Darwish. We are hopeful to have a lot of member and parent participation with our team. Check out our website for sign ups and pertinent information.
Our Synchronized Swimming Program will continue with three new Coaches. Kate Eickhoff, Olivia Kirschbaum, and Hannah Stutler are excited to bring new energy to girls who would like to learn about this creative activity.
Alan Walker is returning as our Tennis Pro this year. He will be assisted by a knowledgeable group of young people to make your tennis experience enjoyable.
There is a large number of returning lifeguards as well as many new faces. Please look for guard pictures on the bulletin board near the locker rooms so you may become acquainted with them.
*** GUESTS ***
In an effort to enhance communication and streamline our billing process for guest fees, we are initiating a new check in procedure at the Club. Each member will be assigned a four digit number which they will give to the guard on duty as well as their name and number of guests in attendance at the Club that day. In the interest of safety, guests will also be asked to give their name and contact information so that we have a daily accounting of who is using our facility. Please check in with the guard on duty whether or not you are bringing guests. Please be patient. Our Club operates largely as an honor system which only works if we all follow the rules. Kelley, our accountant, will soon be contacting you with your member number.
*** CLUB RULES ***
Please take time to review the Club Bylaws and Rules which are found on our website. This is YOUR Club and mutual respect in regards to behavior and child supervision allow for the enjoyment of the Club by all. Our qualified staff is here to assist you in creating a SAFE, fun environment. Remember when driving through the parking lot that there are many small children present who may be hard to see. Take your time so we can all avoid accidents.
*** OPEN HOUSES ***
We will hold Open Houses for prospective members on Saturday, May 28, and Saturday, June 4 from 12 to 3. Board Members will be available to give tours and information for all who may be interested. Please talk to your friends and neighbors and invite them to attend. Approach someone down the street, in your Church, school, or daycare about the Open House to invigorate our membership. The fiscal health of Fairlawn Swim and Tennis is dependent upon our ability to attract new members.

Our oasis in the city is almost ready! We look forward to a great season filled with SUNSHINE.
Your Fairlawn Swim and Tennis Board
