Winter Update – Barclay Farm Swim Club

Hello Barclay Farm Members,

We hope you all enjoyed the holidays! Winter may be in full swing but we’ve been busy preparing for what we hope is another great summer at Barclay Farm Swim Club. There are several updates that we wanted to share with all of you.

First, we are planning a casual adult get together/fundraiser at Kaminski’s on Monday, March 6th from 7:00-9:00 pm. Please mark your calendars and look for additional details under a separate email. We hope you’ll all be able to join us for food, drinks, and some fun.

In preparation for the summer season, we’re happy to announce that we have hired a new pool manager for the 2017 season. Michael DiStefano joins us with fantastic experience, having served as pool manager for a combined 16 years at Erlton and most recently Woodcrest. We look forward to providing an opportunity for Mike to meet our membership in advance of Memorial Day so you can all welcome him to the Barclay Family.

For parents of swim team members, I want to make sure you are all aware that we are starting a Spring Warm-Up program for our swimmers this year. The sessions will take place at the brand new Next Level Aquatic Center in Voorhees from 6:00-7:00 pm on Sundays beginning March 19th. We’ve already received a great response from many of you and are excited that our coaches will be actively involved with our swimmers before the swim season officially begins on May 30th. If you are interested, please text or e-mail Mandy Baker 609-230-5112 or

We have also kicked off our membership development and camp enrollment efforts. Should you have any questions or would like to assist in our efforts, please reach out to me directly (

Remember, while we are putting significant efforts around the development of our membership base, there is no better advertising than the word of mouth from our member families. Spread the word, tell your friends and neighbors to join you at Barclay this summer.

Lastly, we will begin sending out invoices for the 2017 season via email this month. Please keep an eye out for them in the coming weeks. As always, timely payment is always appreciated.

I hope to see you all on March 6th!
