Forest Hills News


Starting August 24th, Forest Hills will open 3 to 8 pm during the week. Weekend hours will remain the same. Our last day will be Labor Day.

In 2016, we are excited because the majority of our experienced staff is returning. Erik will be leading our pool staff with many returning guards and some new ones. An experienced and trained staff helps make Forest Hills the best pool around. In an effort, to help the summer season be more affordable for everyone the fees for 2016 will remain the same as they were the past few years for both the pool and the swim team.

We will be continuing our activities to upgrade your pool facilities. We are committed to always improving the club each year. Your comments are an important part of this process, and we encourage your input. My email address is Forest Hills is your Swim Club and your suggestions are important.

Our swim team is hard at work planning and coordinating with the other pools and the Roanoke Valley Aquatic Association (RVAA) concerning swim meets, city/county championships as well as organizing for splash nights, ice cream parties and other fun-filled activities to make for a successful year. Swimming is the best sport for children and adults alike to come out and get some exercise. We want to encourage all members to come out and participate with our swim team. Erik Largen will be leading the finest coaching staff in the valley. We would like to congratulate Coach Erik on another successful winter swimming season with the Patrick Henry Patriots. Rebecca Muzzy will be managing our team and she needs volunteers to help her. Every year we struggle with getting volunteers so PLEASE help out. We need swimmers and volunteers to have a great summer swim team. Everyone will be asked to help Rebecca with the volunteer positions to run the swim team. A handful of people can not do it all. If everyone will do a little then it is not a huge burden on a few people.

Thank you for the past support. Remember the 2016 swim season is just around the corner, so make your plans to join the Club Now to receive your $30 discount.
