Fall DICA Pool Hours Update

While it was a challenging spring and summer due to COVID-19, the POA worked very hard to try and accommodate as many residents as we could at our pools and maintain a safe environment. This fall, we have similar challenges, but have worked on a new schedule to be able to expand the blocks of time for residents to enjoy the three pools while adding time for our hometown swim teams, Bishop England and Swim Charleston. Both Bishop England and Swim Charleston contract to use our pools annually and at least 75% of their swimmers are Daniel Island residents.

Beginning on Tuesday, September 8th, the Bishop England Swim Team will return to the Pierce Park Pool and the Swim Charleston Swim Team will return to the Scott Park Pool. We have been in close communication with the coaches of both swim teams to devise a practice schedule that best accommodates both swim team needs as well as resident use of the pools.

The current occupancy number of 75 swimmers at a time will remain in place for all swim times. Our gate attendants will have a counter in hand to ensure compliance with occupancy numbers and they will be checking to make sure residents are following the mask ordinance. During practice times, swim teams will have exclusive use of their scheduled pool.

Please see below the new pool hours beginning Tuesday, September 8th:
