2024 Opening/Memorial Day Weekend Info

Welcome to the 2024 Season at Overlee – A Message from Overlee’s Board President

It’s been a busy springtime at Overlee leading up to our 67th season. Our Board members, management team, staff, and volunteers have all been working hard for months to get ready for opening weekend.

A big thank you to Greg York and staff for the Bonus Day this past Saturday! Even though the weather wasn’t great, some members still managed to get a swim.

Among the many improvements you’ll see are a new whitecoat in the main pool and new funbrellas.    The grounds have also been cleaned up, a talented staff with many returning employees has been hired and trained, our swim/dive/synchro teams are ready to go, and we have a great schedule of social events planned for the season.

All the pools and the volleyball court open at 4:00pm on Friday. We hope everyone will take advantage of the fun planned for this 3-day weekend. Enjoy the first few days of the season and remember you can reach me anytime with questions at president@overlee.org.
— Liz Crescioli, President
Overlee Board of Directors

Summer Group Lessons Registration Now Open: The Summer Group Lessons program will have six weeks of lessons held Tuesday-Thursday organized by level and age. Click here to register and for more information.

Guest Information: Active Member Families may bring up to:

  • nine (9) guests on weekdays and
  • four (4) guests on weekends & holidays

For example, a family of 5 may only bring 4 guests on Saturday afternoon, not 20.
Click here for more information.  Guest Passes can be purchased in advance by purchasing guest credits through your online account – either single swim passes for $6 or a 10-swim pass booklet for $55.  Single swim guest passes can also be purchased at the front desk via cash/check for $6 per person on the day of the visit.  Passes for childcare providers or summer house guests need to be purchased online through your account.

Check-In at the Pool: All members are required to check-in at the front desk prior to entry into the pool area. Staff will be available to assist patrons who need to enter through the back gate.  Please state and spell your last name slowly to the desk attendant who will then log you in.  Please be patient with our staff when checking in, especially during busy times.

Emails: All Overlee communication with members is done via email.  During the summer, the list is set up one time at the beginning of the season and then updated through edits.  As you are aware, Overlee introduced a new member management system, Member Splash, last year which required some members to enter an alternate email to their profile.  The mailing list for this email was created using the adult email addresses in your account profiles.  If you would like to add or change your email address in this mailing list (not your profile) so that you can receive pool news and updates at your preferred email address, please contact members@overlee.org.

Directory:  We encourage all members to opt in to the online directory in Member Splash.  To opt in, go to your online account and scroll down to the member directory button on the left side of your profile page.  The directory will include the names of all Adult members, email addresses, and phone numbers (if listed in the profiles).   You can opt in or out of the directory at any time. To access the on-line directory, click on the Member Directory tab in the blue bar at the top of your profile page.

Free Adult Swim Clinics Begin on Friday, June 7th: All adult Overlee members are welcome to join the Adult Swim Clinics on Friday evenings beginning June 7th from 7:30pm – 8:30pm in the Lap Pool. All levels and abilities are welcome, including those who’ve never had a formal swim lesson, those who want to improve a stroke or two, as well as those who are competitive swimmers or triathletes. Our seasoned instructor, Kathy Koczyk, has tips and techniques that will help build your confidence in the water. These clinics are held every Friday in June, July and August.  No registration is required.

Board Seeking Nominees for New Directors: Under Overlee’s current Bylaws, the election of new members of the Board of Directors is held during the Summer Membership Meeting.  This year, the meeting will be on Thursday, July 18, 2024 at 7:00pm. We are seeking Association members who are interested in serving on the Board. Board members act as the governing body for the Association. A description of the Board’s roles and responsibilities can be found on the website in our Bylaws. If you are interested in running or finding out more information, please send an email to Board@overlee.org.
