St. Petersburg Florida is closing and filling in 4 of its 9 public pools. Other cities are closing their pools. Is it a recession thing? Or just a lack of interest, or both? What about the notion that swimming is a life skill rather than just a sport?
I guess pools could benefit from boosters and thriving clubs. We can't take for granted that swimming will grow. We have to make that growth happen. Get the word out. Get active. Save a pool.
