New Morning Hours, Sign-Up Links & Lessons

Dear KGRC Members,

The first half of summer is a wrap and that means the Swim and Dive teams are finishing up their summer practices. The coaching staff and the volunteer Board Representatives for both teams have worked diligently to ensure all of our Dolphin Swimmers and Divers have had a fun time, learned some new skills and got some exercise along the way. The virtual swim and no-stress dive meets were the perfect way to finish up the season. With the end of those practices come a few changes at the club. There’s more below so please read through to the end… 

New Pool Hours + More Swim Time
The pool hours of operation will expand, starting Monday, August 4.

  • Monday- Friday - 11:00 am - 9:00 pm
  • Saturday & Sunday - 10:00 am - 9:00 pm

With the expanded hours, we are now able to allow families to reserve up to four swim times per week.  Also, the reserved time for seniors & immunocompromised members will move earlier, to 11am on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Here are the links you need to sign up:

If your plans change, do cancel your reservation by going back into the Sign-Up Genius so that other members might be able to use the available time. The reservation link is also on the website under the Covid-19 tab. 

The KGRC staff is available to help answer your questions about the pool; simply call the front desk during business hours for help (703.893-7573).  As a reminder, the directors working on setting up the sign up and helping you with your membership are volunteers with a variety of responsibilities, so please be considerate of their time.

All of the KGRC Covid-19 Protocols are still in place including reservations, social distancing and masks. The staff is diligently working to keep you and your family safe and healthy; be sure you understand your responsibility to help keep everyone safe too. Please do not come to the club if you are, or have recently been, feeling ill. The KGRC protocols are posted on the website

Swim & Dive Lessons
Swim lessons will be available beginning Monday, August 3! Several of our Dolphins Swim Team coaches offer private swim lessons. A list of those coaches is posted at the pool, and is also available by contacting [email protected] or [email protected]. Please contact coaches directly to arrange lessons and reserve your lesson time & lane using the Sign-Up Genius provided for pool reservations, noting the instructor’s name in the comment field (this allows the front desk staff to admit the instructor at the time of the reservation). Lessons are for members only and limits on Member reservations include swim lesson reservations. Private or semi-private Dive lessons may be scheduled with the Dive Team's senior coaching staff. Please contact [email protected] for more information.

September Swimming?!
The pandemic has brought a lot of changes and the Board of Directors is looking at the positives! So, we are exploring the possibility of keeping the pool open until the end of September! (As of now, we are set to close on Labor Day, as usual.) With sports cancelled and school taking on a different cadence this fall, we would like to continue to provide a fun place to enjoy the outdoors, cool off and exercise. However, there are several factors to consider, including the finances, before we are able to make the final decision. Obviously, there would be additional expenses to the club not covered by the regular dues to extend the season, and our goal is to avoid having members incur those costs. We are considering offsetting those costs by offering “September Memberships” to the community. 

Before any decisions can be made, it’s important to gauge your interest and know how many members would like to continue using the pool. Please take a moment to fill out our SURVEY before next Tuesday, Aug. 4. to help our decision-making process for this possible endeavor. 

We will update the membership on this as soon as we can!

Have a great weekend and see you at the pool!

See you at the pool!
