To facilitate a touch-free or touch-reduced environment for our staff, members and guests, we are encouraging all members with guests to pay ahead of time with a credit card or debit card. The processing of this form will take you to PayPal – you do not need a PayPal account to pay – look for the grey button that says “Pay with Credit or Debit Card.”
If you must pay in cash, please try to bring the exact amount so that contact can be minimized. Also, since we are not currently selling concessions, we will have a limited ability to make change.
Finally, as a courtesy to members, we would like you to limit guests to no more than 4 per visit. With attendance restrictions, we would like to have as many spots for members as possible. If guest attendance ends up impacting member attendance, we may revise this figure down in the future.
At the pool, we will have QR codes posted (as seen above) for quick access to the payment page.
We will be accepting phone in reservations for pool block scheduling starting on Thursday, May 21. You may book 48 hours in advance for one of the following time slots (maximum number of swimmers at each block is 75):
11:00 am to 2:00 pm
2:30 pm to 5:30 pm
6:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Call times for Thursday and Friday are listed below. Once the pool is open full time (Saturday, May 22), you may call during hours of operations, daily 11:00 am to 9:00 pm. Online scheduling will be introduced once our membership roster has finalized. You must have renewed your membership in order to reserve a slot! Click here to renew now!
Thursday, May 21: 10:00 am to 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm Friday, May 22: 1:00 to 4:00 pm.
We are so excited to be able to have a swim team this year, even though the Columbia Swim League will not be officially having a season. We are looking to practice and have meets with other local Clubs, extending our training season through July.
PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES, OUR COACHES CANNOT BE IN THE WATER WITH YOUNG SWIMMERS. Although we have traditionally placed emphasis on the development of our youngest swimmers, this year, we are limiting enrollment to swimmers 7 years of age or older who can ALREADY swim a length of the pool.
COVID can’t stop a shark! The Murraywood Sharks will swim this summer. Though we won’t be having an official Columbia Swim League season, we will be training and competing through July (extended season since late start).
We are pleased to announce that we are opening! To ensure the safety of members, staff and guests, we will be following the guidelines established by the governor and SC DHEC. At least initially, attendance will be via block scheduling and reservations. Each block is three hours long, and complete disinfecting will occur after each block and before the next block enters.
No cash to pay your guest fees? No problem! You can pay online by clicking the image above. Payment is processed via PayPal – but you don’t need a PayPal account. The cost for online payment is $8 (includes processing fees). You can still pay $7 at the kiosk.
Also, look for QR codes court-side. Use your smart phone camera on the code – it will take you to the payment page automatically!
