The Camana Bay swimming pool, complete after five months of renovations, officially opened last Monday.
The pool was fitted with non-slip tiling that will ensure swimmers’ feet do not slip on the walls as they push off, a resurfaced pool deck that provides a much smoother surface to walk on, and the highlight of the project is an eight-lane display scoreboard that towers over the starting blocks and will enhance the quality of competitions there.
The Camana Bay Aquatic Club is pleased to have its home pool back in business and has resumed its many programs.
In addition to its competitive youth team, CBAC offers adult and masters swimming, private instruction and group lessons that will resume soon.
“We thank Ryan Mushin and the staff of the Lions pool for accommodating us during the renovations,” said CBAC coach Dave Bott. “Their assistance was critical to keeping our program going during the renovations. We could not be happier to bring our program back to its rightful home at Camana Bay.” Jeff Wight, the CBAC/Sport and Recreation president, is also excited to see his facility reopen.
“I can’t think of a better way to start 2015 for CBAC than being back in our home pool,” he said. “I am extremely proud of our entire CBAC family who made the best of a difficult situation with odd training times at other pool facilities on island while our pool was closed.”
The pool also has open times for lap swimming and offers a monthly membership for members to use it during non-school or CBAC hours.
