Congratulations to our Member of the Month

imgTy Green

Congratulations to Ty Green as our latest Member of the Month. Ty grew up in Lemoore CA and wanted a better place to raise his family so they moved to the Central Coast 25 years ago. He has been a member of the club since 2005. Ty is an attorney and his office is conveniently located in the Avila Village along with ABAC. He trains with Jan and Kristen and credits them with pushing him to get into better shape and losing weight. He says, “They are Awesome,” and they say, “Ty is awesome”! In his spare time he enjoys his race horses and singing. He is in two vocal groups, the Vocal Arts Ensemble, which is recognized all over the world, and The Bald Spots that perform locally. Last but not least, Ty is also on the board at The Woods Humane Society. Wow…he is a busy man and still finds time to work out very often. Thanks Ty for being such an amazing person and member.

She is currently a student, and will be transferring to Biola University in La Mirada California to study Nursing. Her goal is to become a registered nurse. Some of her interests are: Guitar and vocals, hiking, running, going to the beach, catching sunsets, and traveling.

Please remember to rinse off before entering the pools. This will help keep our water clean from contaminants such as perfume, sweat, and dirt.

Just a reminder, that Kids’ Club will be closed on July 4th in observance of Independence Day. Take a quick peek at the new hours that start July 1st.
We are going to open at 8am during the week so you parents can make it to the classes that begin at 8:15am. Please take advantage of the extra time and try those classes you haven’t tried before.

I look forward to another great month in Kids’ Club!

Summer Guest Reminders

Please remember that your free guest passes cannot be used in June, July, or August. We had an enormous amount of complaints about the number of guests using the club last summer and are trying hard to prevent that again. As always, non-members under 18 need to have a waiver signed by their parent in order to use the club. There are no exceptions to this policy. Even a grandparent cannot sign on behalf of kids under 18. There is an online waiver available from our website which makes it a lot easier for parents to sign. They can even do it from their smart phone! Thank you for your help with this.
