Updated Mid-Can Membership List - 2016-2017:

The club currently has 42 registered swimmers. A current membership list is attached. This list is used for phone out notification if there is a pool closure. Historically there are more closures in the summer, so please check your information, phone numbers and usual lane and email me if any corrections are required. If there is a closure the pool will contact some board members, who will contact one member of each lane, who will call the remainder of that lane's members. 

Another way to be contacted in the event of a pool closure is to download the UM Recreation App onto your mobile device. There are both Apple and Android versions. Once this is downloaded in Settings you can select the Push Notifications you wish to receive. I have chosen to receive push notifications with these TAGS: Group Fitness, Facilities, General, Informal Recreation, and Programs. The staff behind the ALC counter were not sure which TAGS the Pool Closures would have. 

We still need new members. Please invite friends, family, and co-workers to try out the club. New members can swim gratis for 3 practices before deciding whether or not to join
