Reminders for opening day!

Dear Bannockburn Swim Club Members,

Just a reminder that opening day for Bannockburn Pool is Saturday, May 20 at 10:30am! We are excited to see all of you!  

We will have a wonderful food option available to mark our opening. El Jefe Woodfired Pizza will be at the pool from 4:00pm – 7:00pm will make their Bannockburn debut! Customers can pre-order and pay a few days prior using the menu here (At check out in the Store Pickup section if you want to select a specific pick up time please check “schedule for later” rather than the default setting of asap). They can also accommodate walk-ups but pre-ordering is recommended. Chef Edwin has a great selection of pizzas available that are made to order. Be sure to check out his special “Street Corn” pizza that has sweet corn, mozzarella with cotija cheese, chipotle aioli, and cilantro! 

A little background on Edwin Garcia…he used to work for the owner of Cipolla Rosa who has since moved out of state. Edwin remembered coming to our pool and commented how “Bannockburn is such a great neighborhood” and that he would really like to come back with his new business!


Just a few other reminders: 


Pool Hours

While MPCS schools are still open, our pool is open weekdays and holidays for Early Bird Adult Swim from 6:30 – 8:30 am, weekends from 10:30 am to 8:00 pm and weekdays 3:00 – 8:00 pm.  (Please note our swim team will begin practices on May 22 and take up most of the swim lanes on May 22 until mid/late-July from 3:30 – 6:30 pm weekdays).   


Closing times over the summer will shift to account for the changing sunset time. On June 17, we will start to close at 8:30 pm.  On July 17, we will start to close at 8pm and on August 1, we will start closing at 7:30 pm, but we will send out updates and reminders for that in due course.


Communications & Text Alerts

Sign up for pool text alerts to receive timely notices about weather-related pool closures, changes to hours, food trucks, social events, etc. Opt out of the text alerts at any time by texting Stop as a reply. Feel free to register other family members for these alerts too.


Open your phone’s camera settings and point to the QR Code below to sign up. (Just push send with the auto-populated word bburnpool).  Alternatively you can text Bburnpool to 662 200 4303 to subscribe.


Also, please add to your email safe list.  We communicate regularly with our members from this address throughout the summer.   


Guest Passes

Your membership allows you to bring guests into the pool.  You can purchase the guest passes ahead of time by accessing your account.  Guest passes never expire and can be kept in your account for future seasons, or you can ask for a refund at the end of the season. Guest fees are $5 for all ages Monday – Friday and $10 on weekends and holidays.  Even if guests are not swimming they must still use a guest pass to come inside. Guests must be accompanied by a member at all times during the duration of their stay at the pool.  For members bringing in 10 or more guests, please complete a party reservation request (see next item below).

Please note that members are requested to make sure they have enough guest passes before bringing any guests to the pool, not just when it’s a party, and that a member MUST be present for a guest to have access to the pool.

There is a new focus at the pool this year to account for all members and their guests due to safety and liability operations of the pool, so your cooperation with the check in process this season is much appreciated.

Party Reservations 

For groups of 10 or more people, we ask that you fill out a party reservation request on our website here ideally 1-2 weeks prior to your event.  Members are asked to purchase ample guest passes before hosting a party. 


Swim Lessons

Whether your children are just learning how to swim, your teenagers interested in improving their techniques, or you in “remembering” how to backstroke, lessons are available for you!   For more information and to sign up, go here.  Fees range from $25-45 for 30 minutes paid directly to the instructor depending on experience and skill level. (Minimum age of child for lessons is 3).


Adult Water Aerobics

Marianne Ross is back and will be offering her free adult water aerobics twice a week, Mondays and Thursday, to all members.  The class will start on Monday, May 22 and be held in the first 45 minutes after the pool is open: 3-3:45 pm May 22 to June 16; and 10:30-11:15 am June 19 to September 1.

Swim Team

The swim team will be having its Back to Pool day on Sunday May 21st from 3-5 PM. Come chat with the coaches, have pizza and meet other swimmers and families. We will also have new team merchandise for sale, Sport Fair will be on site selling team suits and children will have the opportunity to do a swim assessment (to determine pre-team or competitive team). See you there!


No Glass 

We have a strict NO GLASS policy.  Please bring food and drinks in non-glass containers. Wine and beer is allowed as long as it is brought in non-glass.  


No Recycling

Unfortunately we were getting fined constantly since many of our members were commingling trash with recyclables.  If recycling is important to you please bring your recycles home with you.



We have a small parking lot.  If you park on the nearby residential streets please do not block neighbors’ driveways or park on their grass. 


Events, Food Trucks, Restaurant Deliveries

As you know, our pool is famous for great gourmet, ethnic food offerings brought in by trucks and restaurants. Please check our calendar often to see the weekly line up. These small, mostly immigrant, family-owned companies are still struggling due to the impact of Covid so would really appreciate your business.  Please consider ordering from them on days they’re on site rather than bringing your own food to make it worth their while.


Please write if you have any questions or feedback.   We hope to meet many of our newcomers in the upcoming days and happy swimming to all!
