Cool Pool News

The Recreation and Special Events Department is excited to reintroduce a free swim clinic with international competitive swimmer Jan Levinrad. Jan learned to swim in South Africa at the age of 5 and began swimming competitively in school, earning full colors. Later she represented her college as well as her province. In the ’90s she immigrated to the U.S. and joined the West Hollywood Aquatics Team where she competed internationally in numerous events, winning 42 gold medals. 

Starting October 5, experienced swimmers are invited to join Jan at Pool 2 every Tuesday for a one-hour clinic; students may attend a noon or 1 p.m. session. Jan will coach swimmers on how to improve their breathing rhythm, strokes and endurance. Swimming is a great aerobic exercise that helps improve flexibility and reduce joint stress. 

No registration is required. Simply drop in for this exciting social swimming experience. Residents only; please call 949-597-4273 for more information.

Safety Flags for Backstrokers

New flags are posted at Pool 2 to enhance swimming experience safety. These indicator flags, used by backstroke swimmers to alert them that they are approaching the end of the pool, are especially beneficial for swimmers who “flip turn” to accelerate off the wall. They are strung between stanchions via sturdy metal posts anchored to the pool deck using slip anchors.
