Hope you are enjoying your summer. As many of you may have heard, Ft Hamilton HS Pool is currently closed for renovations. From what we understand, the renovations will continue for several months. This will be a challenging season for our team, and most of the swim programs in Brooklyn. Hopefully, the repairs will be completed quickly and we can get back to our normal routine.
But, since our season starts in October, we have made alternate arrangements for pool time starting in early September.
We have secured pool time at Wagner College on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 8pm to 9:30pm beginning on September 18.
We have yet to decide how we will structure practice (ex, younger swimmers during the early part of practice, or on one night only, etc). We will be sharing this pool time with the girl’s team. During the early part of our season, we will have the majority of the time, while the girls will have the majority of the time as their season approaches. More details will follow in the coming weeks. Families MUST arrange car pools so as to share the cost of tolls and gas to and from Wagner College. Wagner College is less than 5 miles away from Ft. Hamilton HS (17 minutes!). Rush hour traffic should be over by the time our practice starts. You can also get there by taking a single MTA bus that begins on 86th street and 4th Avenue. We will also continue to look for pool time in Brooklyn. Our meet schedule and location has not been set, but we will get you that information as it becomes available to us from CYO.
We know this is a not an ideal situation, but we have a great team, and hopefully this situation will be short lived. If you have any questions, please email me @
Registration for upcoming swimmers will be open on AUGUST 15th for EARLY REGISTRATION DISCOUNTS (ends in 10 days!) @ www.stpsports.org. Late Registration Fees will be issued beginning on 9/10/18!
