Winter Pool Party
February 16 @ 1:00 PM - 3:30 PM
This year our winter swim party will take place @ CSA Kids, 4113 Whitney St. Janesville. This location is on the north side of Janesville and very easy to get to from the interstate. There is plenty of free parking.
You can come to have fun in the party room even if you aren’t interested in swimming. If you are just coming to hang out in the party room and don’t plan to swim, you don’t need to register. Just show up to have fun. We will have plenty of snacks, a puzzle, coloring and games.
The party (including swimming) is free for members of the Autism Society of South Central WI and their families. You can renew your membership or become a new member at the swim party also. Individual membership is $15/year & family membership is $30/year. If you are not currently a member, we hope you will consider joining, as the membership is used for local education, advocacy, marketing & support services. Membership also gives you discounts throughout the year to events such as the winter and summer pool parties, the annual picnic, and the Autism Society of WI annual conference. Non-members will pay $2 for an individual or $5 for a family for the swim party. Money will be collected at the door.
For adult swimmers or families with swimmers, registration is required by CSA Kids since we have a maximum of 20 swimmers per session due to pool size and all swimmers must have a waiver submitted. Parents who are not swimming can hang out in the deck chairs in the pool area, and do not count toward the 20 swimmer maximum. To register, including submitting your family waiver form, go to www.csakids.com/events-calendar/. On the calendar page, go to February. On February 16th there are two orange choices: 11 & under from 1-2 pm and 12 & up from 2-3 pm. Click on whichever one best fits your family, and a registration form will pop up. Fields with an asterisk are required. In registering, the family name is the parent & then scroll down to add each child. Check boxes for disclaimer & type name at the bottom of the screen for electronic signature.
The water is a pleasant 90 degrees with step entry & benches to sit on inside the water. There is a range of depth up to 4′ 3″ so it is a no diving pool. There are plenty of toys available-sea horses to ride, basketball hoop, watering cans, squirting animals along with lots of floating & sinking toys including rings, dolphins, rockets and a treasure box. There are also a couple pairs of flippers, water frisbee and water tennis rackets along with balls. Everyone is welcome to bring their own toys also. We will swim in 2 sessions: Those families with children 11 & under from 1:00-2:00, and those families with children 12- adult from 2:00-3:00. You can have fun in the party room when the opposite session is swimming.
