What activities does the PVSC offer?
The PVSC has a Swim and Dive team that competes with other local New Jersey swim clubs. We also have raft days once a month, games on holidays and special activities that vary each month. On club grounds, we have a swing set, playground, basketball court, knock hockey tables, ping pong tables, and shuffleboard. There’s also a fierce adult volleyball match most afternoons.
Can I bring guests to PVSC?
Members may bring guests to the swim club for a fee.
How many pools are in the facility?
We have two pools: Our Olympic-sized swimming pool goes from 3 feet to 11 feet, has a dedicated lane for lap swimming and two diving boards. Our kiddie pool goes from 1 foot to 2 feet and is fenced in for the safety of younger children.
Are children in diapers allowed in the pool?
In keeping with a Board of Health code, children who are not potty-trained are not allowed in the main pool. Children with diapers are able to use the kiddie pool if they are wearing a swim diaper. The kiddie pool is emptied every few days for sanitation.
Are rafts or “floaties” allowed in the pool?
Raft days are held once a month, when members are invited to bring rafts into the main pool. “Floaties” — and any type of child swim aid — are prohibited from the pool at all times. These types of flotation devices give children a false sense of security and are often linked to aquatic accidents. The prohibition of these flotation devices is in keeping with a state code.
Are the lifeguards certified?
PVSC has 10 full-time lifeguards on staff. Every lifeguard is certified in Lifesaving, CPR, and First Aid by the American Red Cross.
Can I have a party at the PVSC?
We love to party at the PVSC! Parties can be held during operating hours or you may rent the pool after hours. Click here for party rates.
Does PVSC have a concession stand?
