All you need to know about SCCA Spring Clean-Up Day

*EDITED TO ADD: Due to weather, plans have changed. There will be NO Clean-Up on the 29th. The below post has been updated to reflect the current plans.

So you're volunteering at the Spring Clean-Up Day? Thanks for signing up! (If you haven't yet, the most current sign up list is here.)

Clean-Up Day is a tradition at the pool; a day where members gather and work together to make a difference. We are the South College Community Pool; we encourage our members to take ownership. Together, we beautify the grounds, make a repairs, and get the pool ready for opening day. Here are a few things that might be helpful for you to know beforehand.

  • There are two dates you may volunteer: Saturday May 6th or Saturday May 13th from 8-11am
  • When you arrive, please find Kristie Parker, or one of the other board members, who will make sure you are checked in. This is important so we can add guest passes to your account - one of the benefits of pitching in that day.
  • We will be adding free guest passes to all who volunteer for a 3 hour shift (limit 20 passes per family).
  • Volunteers of all ages are welcome. This is a great opportunity to have children work and help, and a great way to get them excited about the swim season, starting soon. FYI: the pool cover is off. If you are bringing young children and are concerned about the pool, we have jobs in the front where you may feel most safe.
  • Wear work clothes. We are hoping some of our volunteers can help with a painting project, so come with clothes that can get messy. Others will be raking leaves and debris, sweeping, hosing, cleaning the fridges & concessions room, trimming plants, beautifying the gardens, hanging wasp traps, moving tables & chairs, prepping the grills, installing lifeguard chairs, etc.
  • Bring your own water containers. We will have coolers available to refill bottles, but want to cut down on waste.
  • Board members will be bringing some baked goodies and other things to munch on - another little way to say thanks. :)
  • We encourage you to bring tools that might be helpful: GLOVES, rakes, leaf blowers, brooms, tree clippers. If anyone has flowers they want to donate (now or later in the season) we would be happy to have some color in the garden beds.
  • We are accepting contributions that will help us check projects off our list. Check our list and see if you can help.
  • BATHROOMS will available. They may still be putting finishing touches on them, but we're happy to say that they will be functional for our use.
  • We encourage you to have fun while you volunteer! Clean-Up Day is about sprucing up our grounds, but also about building community and working alongside each other. :)

WISH LIST – can you donate?

There are a number of projects scheduled for completion during Clean-Up Day - some of them are dependent on whether or not we have materials donated or supplied at a discounted rate. The pool board is working hard to keep costs low for our members. If you happen to know of anyone that is able to provide any of the following items for the pool, or if you have connections for a better deal, please let us know at Some examples would be a connection/discount to lumber for new wood around the volleyball pit, a plumber to help us boost pressure for our grills, painter to paint the building, landscaper for new sand in the volleyball pit, etc.. We truly appreciate all of the community effort to beautify and maintain our pool.

Would you consider donating any of the following?
  • Mulch (You can get free mulch at Spring Creek Gardens/Timberline Recycling - we need people willing to pick up and deliver it in trucks or trailers)
  • Flowers, bulbs or veggies to plant in the garden areas (10)
  • Top soil or compost to mix in with flowers (couple bags) (4)
  • Yellow jacket replacement cartridges (4)
  • Yellow jacket traps (the whole thing) (4)
  • Grass seed (general mix bag)
  • Pin Flagging (about 25 flags)
  • Tan exterior gallon paint to paint the outside of the sheds
  • Blue exterior gallon paint (contact for an exact color code)
  • White exterior gallon paint (contact for an exact color code))
  • Bags of concrete

Clean-Up Day Postponed!

The weather isn't looking very pleasant for this weekend. (Really - possible snow?!?) There will be NO Clean-Up Day this Saturday.

Instead, we will be having two options for families to help out - May 6th and May 13th. Please sign up here. In terms of the free guest passes we are offering, the same guidelines apply as were originally posted. We will offer 20 free guest passes to your membership account as long as at least one adult works a 3 hour shift (20 passes maximum per family). Thank you so much for offering your time and talents to improve our pool and get it ready for the season to open.

Last Chance for Free Guest Passes – This Saturday.

Thank you to all those who made our first Clean Up Day successful! We had a great turn out (and great weather too!) We truly appreciated ALL of the helping hands as we prepare for the season to begin!

We still have plenty more to be done, and one more Clean Up Day this coming Saturday. We opened up a few more slots in case you still want to sign up.

Thank you so much for offering your time and talents to improve our pool and get it ready for the season to open.

Stacking Chairs

You might notice that we are no longer stacking all of the chairs every evening. If you could instead just make sure to leave them lined up neatly when you leave, that would be awesome. Friday nights are the exception -- they all get stacked then to make Saturday mowing easier. Thanks!
