Choose a lane according to your speed and ability, that's it! All levels are welcome!
Dates: Feb 10 - Aug 27, 2014

Where: CUA is convenient to Brookland/CUA Station on the Red Line.
The pool is located inside the DuFour Center on John McCormack Road
The fee for the swims is $5 per session to cover the pool rental and lifeguards. Lockers are available, but you need your own lock.
Please email me, Amanda, at email@example.com with any questions.
Nice to another swim venue, and a good one at that.
I will be back too. Probably starting end of Feb.
What's the parking situation like there? And do you have an address for GPS? I went to their website, but can't find an address.
No issues with parking.
Here is the link to the events page with a map.
I am also having a hard time finding an address, but hopefully this helps.
I'll keep looking.
Thanks Amanda. By no issues, what do you mean? Free parking? Meters? ;)
Yes, free parking.
And James, thanks for the gmap link!!
Good to have "The Original" pool back in action!
I'll have to dust off my floaties. I definitely won't be swimming towards the fast end of the pool anymore.
Seriously, nice work getting this back together.
We're back at the DuFour Center! Sweet! And I love the use of the clock for pacing. I'm gonna try and make an appearance every now and then when my schedule permits.
6 lanes. Which means there will be a "haven't been in the pool since last summer" lane - fantastic! Looking forward to seeing everyone back there.
Dang, I just moved out of the area too! I used to live like 10 minutes walk from the CUA pool!
Just as a reminder, CUA swims will be starting NEXT WEEK - Monday, Feb 10 at 6:30 pm. 3-4 workouts will be provided by myself or Paul W - CUA's Aquatics Director, however this is not a coached workout.
This is an ALL LEVELS swim and we will adjust for the people who are there.
If there are any questions, please email me, Amanda, at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a message.
See you next week!
I wanted to post here that I started a new thread for the 2014 workouts. I will work with Paul, the CUA Aquatics Director, to have the workouts posted Mon/Wed.
Remember, this is an all levels swim that does not provide specific coaching.
This is open to all DC Tri Club members and all you need is $5 cash.
See you tonight!!
Oh, and I confirmed with Paul about parking.
"Don't worry about parking permits, you can all park in our lot without being ticketed."
So when you look at, this page which shows parking (last updated by Travis in 2008) you will be fine to park without worry.
I will be metroing tonight to see about how long it takes me walk.
we need to get CaBi to put a dock at the pool. They already have one at the metro.
Will CUA be open on President's Day? Same time for swimming?
Yes, we should be having our CUA swim on Monday the 17th at the same time. I will confirm with Paul tonight and post here (and the workout thread page) either way.
YES, we will be swimming on Monday (tomorrow) at the same time, 6:30-8.
Come check us out. For only $5 a session you get access to all 6 lanes, workouts of multiple distances, and we have had an open lane for people to swim and have their questions answered by Paul - the CUA aquatics director.
Hope to see you there!!
