Section I – Indoor Recreation Program

 

Options:

 

As a result of the information gathered during Phase I of the Community Recreational Facilities Needs Assessment Study that indicated an acute need for additional indoor recreation spaces.  This section of the study will focus specifically on how to best meet the indoor recreation needs of the county.

 

In Phase I, the public input process indicated that the greatest indoor recreation needs were for the following facilities:

 

·        Indoor warm water family aquatic center

·        Indoor running/walking track

·        Weight room/cardiovascular equipment area

·        Aerobics/fitness space

·        Lap lanes for exercise swimming

 

Other indicated needs included gymnasiums and activity areas for teens and seniors.

 

With these identified indoor needs the county must develop an overall philosophy regarding how they want to pursue the development of these types of facilities.  There are several different options that deserve consideration these include:

 

  1. The county develops a single mega facility to meet the basic indoor recreation needs of the entire county.

 

With this scenario the county commits to building and operating one large county wide indoor recreation center located in the more urban area of the county.  The center would require a site with a land area of 15 acres or more.  The center would probably include a substantial aquatic area that would have a competitive (8 lane 25 yard) pool, leisure pool, weight cardiovascular fitness area, two group fitness areas, a large gym with an elevated track, a teen area, extensive senior services area, multi-purpose rooms, drop-in child care and the necessary support spaces (locker rooms, lobby, offices, storage, etc.).  This facility would be at least 90,000 sq.ft. in size and the cost to develop could exceed $20 million.  The county could operate the facility themselves or contract a portion (seniors, etc.) to other organizations, or potentially have the entire facility contract operated by another organization (YMCA, etc.).  Self operation will require a small annual subsidy ($100,000 to $150,000 annually)

 

The county would still rely on school gyms and other facilities for neighborhood recreation and the City of Charlottesville, the YMCA and other providers would continue to operate their own programs and facilities independent of the county and their facility.    

 

  1. The county develops several facilities (smaller in size) in key areas of the county.

 

Under this approach the county would commit to building up to four indoor recreation centers in each quadrant of the county.  Each center would have basic common elements (aquatic area and fitness) with other amenities added to meet specific needs for that area (gyms, teen, senior, multi-purpose space, etc.).  Each center would be in the area of 30,000 to 40,000 sq.ft. and the capital cost could be as high as $10 million per center.  A site of approximately 5 acres would be necessary for a center and the needed parking requirements.  Each of the centers could be operated in-house or some or all of them could be contract managed by other organizations.  Self operation would result in an annual operating subsidy of at least $100,000 per facility.   

 

The county would still rely on school gyms and other facilities for neighborhood recreation and the City of Charlottesville, the YMCA and other providers would continue to operate their own programs and facilities independent of the county and their facilities.    

 

  1. The county partners with others to develop multiple facilities on different levels.

 

The basis of this plan is to develop needed indoor facilities on more of a piecemeal basis with other existing providers in the county taking on the responsibility of building and operating facilities with financial or in-kind (providing sites) assistance from the county.  The county would then build and operate any needed indoor facilities that were not being provided by others.  This concept requires that the county set up specific guidelines and policies for other agencies receiving in-kind or capital financing.  This could include basic eligibility requirements and the limits for total county funding (a percentage of the total project capital cost).  The parameters of this option include:   

 

 

 

 

The county would be budgeting capital dollars for specialized indoor recreation facilities but the amount should be below $20 million.  Operational commitments would depend on the type of facility that is built.  The county would also need to fund a program for grants to other organizations for the development of indoor recreation facilities.  This could be an amount of $10 million or more distributed over a period of 5 to 10 years.  The county would not fund operations of these types of facilities.  The county would continue to rely on school facilities for neighborhood recreation purposes.

 

  1. The county opts to not develop any indoor facilities but financially assists other providers with facilities.

 

This scenario takes the approach that the county will not be building and operating any of its own indoor recreation facilities but will instead be assisting other entities and organizations with indoor recreation facility projects that will provide opportunities for the general public within the county.  Much like in option 3 the county would establish basic eligibility requirements and financial limits for applying for such funding.  Possible projects include: 

 

 

 

 

 

The county would only fund a program for grants to other organizations for the development of indoor recreation facilities.  This could be an amount of $15 million or more distributed over a period of 5 to 10 years.  The county would not fund operations of these types of facilities.  The county would continue to rely on school facilities for neighborhood recreation purposes.

 

In order to determine the best option to follow for the county an analysis of each of the options is necessary.

 

County builds a single mega facility.

 

Pluses:

1.      This is a cost effective option (capital and operationally) that allows for cross marketing to a variety of different users.

 

2.      Centralizes indoor recreation in one facility.

 

3.      Gives the county an identifiable indoor landmark.

 

4.      County controls the development and operation of a major recreation facility.

 

Minuses:

1.      Will need a central location to serve the entire county.

 

2.      It will be difficult to serve the far reaches of the county adequately at one site.

 

3.      The center will have to be very large and the site will have to be extensive enough to cover the facility size and parking requirements.

 

4.      Will require a substantial initial capital investment.

 

5.      County is the primary developer.

 

6.      The concept is not compatible with the neighborhood concept of delivering recreation services.

 

      County builds several smaller facilities at different sites.

           

            Pluses:

1.      Places facilities closer to users in more remote areas of the county.

 

2.      Allows for different amenities to be offered at different facilities.

 

3.      Requires smaller sites.

 

4.      County controls the development and operation of most indoor recreation resources and facilities.

 

Minuses:

1.      More expensive to build and operate at multiple sites.  

 

2.      Requires a very high level of funding (both capital and operations).

 

3.      Results in multiple facilities providing different amenities and services.

 

4.      May require that users go to several different centers for recreation needs.

 

      County partners with other providers to develop multiple facilities

 

            Pluses:

1.      The county is not a primary provider of indoor recreation facilities.

 

2.      Partnerships are encouraged with other organizations.

 

3.      Financial responsibilities are shared with others.

 

4.      County wide resources are maximized.

 

5.      County still has responsibility for development and operation of some indoor amenities.

 

6.      This concept is compatible with the current method of how the county provides parks and recreation resources.

 

Minuses:

1.      Requires a high level of organization, coordination and administration. 

 

2.      Different organizations delivering services with different operating philosophies and goals.

 

3.      The county has limited control over how dollars are spent and services are delivered in all facilities except those developed by the county itself.

 

4.      There is no continuity in the provision of indoor recreation facilities and programs.  Users may have to go to multiple facilities for their recreation needs.

 

5.      Other organizations will have to be the major source of capital and operations funding.

 

6.      The county still must develop specific facilities which no other provider is willing to take on.  This could be facilities that are not cost effective to build or to operate. 

 

      The county opts to not develop any indoor facilities

 

            Pluses:

1.      No direct responsibility for the county to develop and operate indoor recreation facilities.

 

2.      County can determine on a case by case basis the extent of financial support they are willing to give different organizations.

 

3.      Potentially the least costly option for the county.

 

Minuses:

1.      Virtually no control over what types of facilities are developed or how they are operated.

 

2.      There will continue to be significant gaps between the indoor recreation needs of the county’s citizens and what facilities are provided.

 

3.      There is no continuity in the provision of indoor recreation facilities and programs.  Users may have to go to multiple facilities for their recreation needs.

 

4.      Other organizations will have to be the major source of capital and operations funding.

 

Preferred Option:

 

After analyzing the four different options noted above a preferred option was developed that is a combination of options 2 and 3.  The preferred option looks at the county developing three different facilities and partnering with other providers when possible.

Section IV – South Recreation Center Operations Pro-Forma

 

The following operations pro-forma has been put together for the planned South Recreation Center.  The following are the parameters for the project.

 

 

 

 

Operating Expenditures

 

Expenditures have been formulated based on the costs that are usually included in the operating budget for an indoor recreation facility.  The figures are based on the size of the center, the specific components of the facility and the projected hours of operation.  Actual costs were utilized wherever possible and estimates for other expenses were based on similar facilities in other areas of the country.  All expenses were calculated as accurately as possible, but actual costs may be more or less based on the final design, operational philosophy, and programming considerations adopted by staff.  A cost scenario has been developed for the facility noted below. 

 

Facility - Recreation center with a double court gymnasium, aerobics/dance room, leisure pool and a 25 yard x 25 meter competitive pool, weight/cardiovascular area, track, childcare room, multipurpose rooms (with kitchen), senior space, teen center, arts & crafts room, indoor playground, lobby/lounge/vending area, locker rooms and administrative area. Approximately 86,500 sq.ft.

Note: It is anticipated that a portion of the center’s programming and services could be provided by other groups and organizations.  It is assumed that all of the senior elements and programs in the facility will be staffed by the center’s staff. 

 


 

Revenues

 

The following revenue projections were formulated from information on the specifics of the project and the demographics of the service area as well as comparing them to national statistics, other similar facilities and the competition for recreation services in the area.  Actual figures will vary based on the size and make up of the components selected during final design, market stratification, philosophy of operation, fees and charges policy, and priorities of use.

  ***  Figures are based on assessing fees that are at least 50% higher than the total cost of operating the program.  General programs consist of fitness, instructional classes and sports programs.  Aquatics includes learn to swim, aqua fitness, and other programs.

 

Note: No revenue has been shown from school district or community organization use of the center, although it is expected that these groups will be charged for facility usage at the established rate.  Estimates for possible revenue from school district use are as follows:  Swim team use 2 hrs/day @ $60, 5 days a week for 14 weeks, 3 meets @ $180, plus curriculum use of 4 hrs a day @ $60, 5 days a week for 36 weeks would equal approximately $52,140.

Future Years: Expenditure - Revenue Comparison: Expenses for the first year of operation of the center should be slightly lower than projected with the facility being under warranty and new.  Revenue growth in the first three years is attributed to increased market penetration and in the remaining years to continued population growth.  In most recreation facilities the first three years show tremendous growth from increasing the market share of patrons who use such facilities, but at the end of this time period revenue growth begins to flatten out.  Additional revenue growth is then spurred through increases in the population within the market area, a specific marketing plan to develop alternative markets, the addition of new amenities or by increasing user fees.  

 

 

 

This operations pro-forma was completed based on the best information available and a basic understanding of the project.  However, there is no guarantee that the expense and revenue projections outlined above will be met as there are many variables that affect such estimates that either cannot be accurately measured or are not consistent in their influence on the budgetary process.   

 


 

Fees and Attendance

 

Projected Fee Schedule:  The fee schedule has been figured utilizing an approximate 25% fee differential between Albemarle County residents and non-residents.  Revenue projections and attendance numbers were calculated from this fee model.

* Admissions for pass holders were figured based on 26 admissions per 3 month, 52 for 6 month and 104 visits per year for an annual.         

                                                                       

The number of 3 month, 6 month, and annual passes sold is based on capturing 5% of the households (33,800) in Albemarle County and 3% of the households (17,000) in the City of Charlottesville.  The numbers for daily passes are based on known industry averages from other facilities, survey results, the amenities expected to be contained in the center, the fees being charged and the competition in the area.  All family admissions are counted as one admission.

 

Note: Attendance for other events, programs, and spectator functions is more difficult to predict but a best guess estimate is approximately 2.5 times the number of paid admissions.  Recreation centers are traditionally the busiest from November to March and mid-June to mid-August and are slow from April to early June and again from mid-August to the end of October.  Weekdays between the hours of 5pm and 8pm are the busiest times of the week and weekends are also very busy during the winter months.  In contrast mid-morning and early afternoon on weekdays are usually slow as well as weekends during the summer months (especially Sundays).


 

 

Hours of Operation: The projected hours of operation of the South Recreation Center are as follows:

 

Monday - Friday                6:00am  to10:00pm

Saturday                             8:00am  to  8:00pm

Sunday                                  Noon  to  8:00pm

 

Hours per week: 100

 

Hours usually vary some with the season (longer hours in the winter, shorter during the summer), by programming needs, use patterns and special event considerations.

 


 

Section V – South Center Project Recommendations

 

The following section details specific recommendations for the South Community Center project.  Remarks are grouped by areas of interest.

 

Programs and Facilities:  The design, image and quality of a recreation center has a direct impact       on its ability to attract and keep customers.  Thought should be given to the building layout as it pertains to crowd control and access, during the final design phase of the project.  A visible open design, which highlights the different activity areas and encourages participation from the user as well as the non-user, is essential to generating community excitement and revenue.  As much natural light as possible needs to be incorporated into the design while not compromising safety and promoting and maintaining energy efficiency in every way possible.  The intent is to build a "smart building" that gives Albemarle County and the YMCA the most for its money and the user a sense of quality and value.

 

Pool- No other amenity affects facility revenues and use as dramatically as a pool and as a result, Ballard*King and Associates believes strongly that any community center that is being built in most settings should include a swimming pool as part of its facility components.  Without doubt the hottest trend in aquatics is the leisure pool concept.  This idea of incorporating slides, current channels, fountains, zero depth entry and other water features into a pools design has proved to be extremely popular for the drop-in user.  The age of the conventional pool in most recreational settings is nearly dead.  Leisure pools appeal to the younger kids (who are the largest segment of the population that swims) and to families.  These types of facilities are able to attract and draw larger crowds and people tend to come from a further distance and stay longer to utilize such pools.  This all translates into more use and revenue.  It is estimated conservatively that a leisure pool can generate up to 30% more revenues than a comparable conventional pool and the cost of operation with shallow water, lower ceiling heights and virtually no seating has been less.  Of note is the fact that patrons seem willing to pay a higher admission fee for the use of a leisure amenity when it includes a pool (even if they are not a swimmer).   The simple fact that there is a pool in a community center will drive the use and ultimately the revenue in the other areas of the center.  It is estimated that a pool will increase revenues in non-aquatic areas by as much as 10%.  Consistent use of the facility by families and young children is dependent in large part on this amenity.  The sale of annual passes and especially family annual passes is also tied to the appeal of the leisure pool.

 

Programs- Special events are an important aspect of any facility but they are difficult to base consistent revenue on.  They can be very disruptive to users and care must be taken to evaluate the benefits and problems caused by such activities.  The revenues generated from these programs are not always worth the time and effort to put them together.  The center should not be designed specifically to handle the once a year event or activity but should have the versatility to adapt to these needs within reason.  Long term programming and facility needs of the YMCA, school district, community, businesses, and other local institutions should be identified and integrated into the operations plan for this facility.

 

The success of indoor recreation centers is dependent on developing a broad based appeal to the general public.  The needs of youth, seniors, and families must be considered and their individual concerns and issues addressed.  Programs that are intergenerational in nature and those that are specifically oriented towards certain population segments will both need to be developed.  The needs of the business community must also be considered if this market is to be developed and served.    

 

Consideration should be given to contracting for certain programs or services, especially those that are very specialized in nature.  Any contracted programs or services should require a payment of a percentage of the fees collected back to the center.

 

It is important to realize that the center must have a balance between program and drop-in use of the various components of the facility.  The pools, gyms, weight/fitness areas and jogging track are of particular concern.  If these areas do not have substantial times set aside on a daily basis for drop-in use then revenues generated from daily use and annual passes will be in jeopardy.

 

Budget and Fees:  The success of this project depends on a number of budget factors, which need special consideration.  An operational philosophy must be developed and priorities for use must be clearly identified.  The revenue figures contained in this document are based on the principal that the facility will have a balance between drop in use and programmed activities.  A goal of consistently covering 90% of operational expenses with revenues should be attainable and there is the possibility of recovering all the operating expenses through facility revenues.  However, it must be realized that most of the recreation centers that have been built in the last ten years are not covering their operating expenses with revenues.  Maximizing revenue production should be a primary goal.  Care must be taken to make sure that a fees and charges policy is consistently followed.  No form of revenue production should be given away.  All uses by organized youth sports groups and other community organizations should include a market driven user fee (or rental fee) to help offset the cost of operating the center. 

 

Capital replacement fund- A plan for funding a capital replacement program should be developed before the center opens.  The American Public Works Association recommends between 2% and 4% of replacement cost be budgeted annually for capital items.  Costs for maintenance and contract services should be lower than the amount budgeted for the first year since most equipment will still be under warranty.     

 

Fees- The revenue projections were based on the concept of having a resident, and non-resident rate.  The difference between the two rates is approximately 25%.  A non-resident fee that is more than 50% tends to exclude these individuals from participating in the facility or its programs.  With the residents of county comprising about two thirds of the primary service area population, non-resident usage will still need to be encouraged to utilize the facility to make it financially viable.  With a resident/non-resident fee system, non-resident fees should be listed as the “regular fee”, and the resident fee as the “resident discount fee”.   It is estimated that only 20% to 25% of all users will be non-residents of Albemarle County.  To adequately administer a resident/non-resident fee program a resident photo ID program needs to be put into effect.  This requires a resident to buy a photo ID to speed identification and resident verification at the check-in counter.  The costs and revenues of such a program have been figured into the operations budget. 

 

Fees paid for individual programs do not allow the user to utilize the center on a drop-in basis.  A method of combining program fees and drop in use allows an annual pass holder to purchase a "fitness rider" for $75.00, which gives them unlimited access to any fitness class during the time their pass is valid.  Some centers actually include “free” fitness classes as part of the benefits of having an annual pass.  A similar rider may need to be developed for drop-in baby-sitting and/or a baby-sitting punch card introduced.  The payment of the drop-in fee should allow the user access to all areas of the center that are open to drop-in use.  There should not be separate fees for different portions of the building (such as the pool, gym, track or weight room).

 

A senior discount fee schedule was developed for the center, but it should be considered as a marketing tool rather than a discount based on need.  Another option is to offer a limited morning or daytime discount rate that would be available to anyone using the center during this slower period of the day.  This would work much like a senior discount without having to label it as one.  With the fee structure that has been proposed, it will be necessary to develop a scholarship program for those individuals that cannot afford the basic rates.  An established criteria such as eligibility for the school lunch program should be utilized to determine need rather than spending the time and aggravation of developing and administering a new system.  The corporate rate program should also be promoted and sold to local businesses in the area.

 

To promote the sale of six month and annual passes it is absolutely essential that a system be set up that allows for the automatic withdrawal from the pass holder’s checking account of a monthly portion of the annual pass payment.  Without this option it will be difficult to meet the projected sales of annual passes.  In addition, charge cards need to be accepted for all programs and services offered by the township.  A computerized registration process must also be introduced to speed registration transactions and improve annual pass management.

 

Pre-selling annual passes – Approximately 3 to 6 months before the center opens there must be a program in place to begin the pre-sale of “charter passes” with a savings incentive to promote sales.  A goal should be to pre-sell between 25% and 50% of all budgeted passes prior to opening the center.

 

Marketing plan- A marketing plan for the facility and its programs is essential.  This document should target specific markets, programs, facilities and user groups.  It needs to be an active document that is utilized by the facility manager to guide all marketing efforts.  This plan should be updated yearly.  Special emphasis must be placed on promoting the sale of annual passes to establish a strong revenue base. The business market should also be a major focus of the marketing effort as well. 

 

Staffing- Staffing costs are the biggest single operating expense and alternative options need to be investigated if costs are to be significantly reduced.  The use of volunteers, trading facility use for labor and other similar ideas, deserve consideration as methods to reduce staffing budgets.  The pay rates for both part-time and full-time personnel were determined based on the need to attract well-qualified employees and minimize staff turnover rates.  It is important to budget for an adequate level of staffing in all areas.  One of the biggest mistakes in operations comes from understaffing a center and then having to come back and ask for more help later.  Maintenance staffing is of particular concern and is most often where cuts are made.  Detailed job descriptions should be written for all staff and areas of responsibility need to be clearly defined.  An adequate training fund is essential to a well-run center.  An emphasis needs to be placed on the importance of image and customer service in all training programs.

 

The key to opening a recreation center and have it operate smoothly is hiring the necessary staff well in advance and having them well organized, properly trained and comfortable with the buildings features.  They need to be ready to hit the ground running with policies and procedures in place, and a marketing and maintenance program under way.  The following are the suggested hiring dates for staff prior to the center’s opening.

 

            Center Manager -                             12 months  

Aquatics/Asst. Manager -                   6 months

            Public Relations Spec.                         6 months

            Maint. Leader -                                  5 months

            Program Supervisors -                        3 months

            Acct./Secretary -                                  1 month

            Custodians -                                         1 month

Front Desk Super. -                             1 month

Head Lifeguards -                                1 month           

            Part-time Staff –                                   1 month   

 

YMCA Partnership- The operations plan was developed with the idea that the county and YMCA would partner on the development of the center with capital dollars coming from both entities.  However operations would be the responsibility of the YMCA under guidelines developed by the county and the Y.  This center should not operate as a traditional YMCA but as a hybrid between a Y and public recreation center.  As has been noted it is expected that the center will have a substantial amount of time dedicated to open use time for annual pass holders an others.  The center will need to encourage day use passes as well as three month, 6 month and annual pass sales.  It is assumed that the YMCA will have some additional use and programming in the building and that has not been shown in this operations budget (camps, etc.).  As a result of these operational guidelines it is anticipated that the center will operate at a small annual loss and that the county and Y will need to negotiate an agreement for the payment of an annual payment to the Y for the anticipated shortfall.

 

It is absolutely imperative that Albemarle County and the YMCA enter into a partnership agreement prior to beginning construction of the center.


 

Section VI – North & Crozet Center Operations Pro-Formas

Operating Expenditures

 

Expenditures have been formulated based on the costs that are usually included in the operating budget for an indoor recreation facility.  The figures are based on the size of each of the centers, the specific components of the facilities and the projected hours of operation.  Actual costs were utilized wherever possible and estimates for other expenses were based on similar facilities in other areas of the country.  All expenses were calculated based on the understanding that these facilities will not be developed for a period at least 5 years.  A cost scenario has been developed for each facility noted below.  This scenario is based on self operation by the county in the year 2010.

 

North Center - Recreation center with a double court gymnasium, aerobics/dance room, leisure pool, weight/cardiovascular area, childcare room, multipurpose room,  lobby/lounge/vending area, locker rooms and administrative area. Approximately 56,500 sq.ft.

 

Crozet Center – Recreation center with a double gymnasium, small aerobics area, small weight/cardiovascular area, teen area, multipurpose room, lobby/lounge/vending area, locker rooms and administrative area. Approximately 31,500 sq.ft.  It is also assumed that the existing outdoor pool will be bubbled over for year round use.

  *  Position (and hours) is six months (26 weeks) only, due to heavier use of the facility during the winter months.

 

**  Program instructors are paid at several different pay rates and some are also   paid per class or in other ways.  This makes an hourly breakdown difficult.  General programs consist of fitness, sports leagues, teen activities, senior classes, general interest classes and other misc. programs.  Aquatics includes learn to swim, aqua fitness, and other classes.

 

Note: It is anticipated that a portion of the center’s programming and services could be provided by other groups and organizations.  It is assumed that all of the senior elements and programs in the facility will be staffed by the center’s staff. 

 


 

Revenues

 

The following revenue projections were formulated from information on the specifics of the project and the demographics of the service area as well as comparing them to national statistics, other similar facilities and the competition for recreation services in the area.  Actual figures will vary based on the size and make up of the components selected during final design, market stratification, philosophy of operation, fees and charges policy, and priorities of use. All revenues were calculated using a reasonably conservative approach.

Future Years: Expenditure - Revenue Comparison: Expenses for the first year of operation of the center should be slightly lower than projected with the facility being under warranty and new.  Revenue growth in the first three years is attributed to increased market penetration and in the remaining years to continued population growth.  In most recreation facilities the first three years show tremendous growth from increasing the market share of patrons who use such facilities, but at the end of this time period revenue growth begins to flatten out.  Additional revenue growth is then spurred through increases in the population within the market area, a specific marketing plan to develop alternative markets, the addition of new amenities or by increasing user fees.   

 

 

 

This operations pro-forma was completed based on the best information available and a basic understanding of the project.  However, there is no guarantee that the expense and revenue projections outlined above will be met as there are many variables that affect such estimates that either cannot be accurately measured or are not consistent in their influence on the budgetary process.   

 


 

Fees and Attendance

 

Projected Fee Schedule:  The fee schedule has been figured utilizing an approximate 25% fee differential between Albemarle County residents and non-residents.  Revenue projections and attendance numbers were calculated from this fee model.

* Admissions for pass holders were figured based on 26 admissions per 3 month, 52 for 6 month and 104 visits per year for an annual.         

                                                                       

For the North Center the number of 3 month, 6 month, and annual passes sold is based on capturing 4% of the households (37,500) in Albemarle County and 2% of the households (17,800) in the City of Charlottesville.  The numbers for daily passes are based on known industry averages from other facilities, survey results, the amenities expected to be contained in the center, the fees being charged and the competition in the area.  All family admissions are counted as one admission.

 

Note: Attendance for other events, programs, and spectator functions is more difficult to predict but a best guess estimate is approximately 2.5 times the number of paid admissions.  Recreation centers are traditionally the busiest from November to March and mid-June to mid-August and are slow from April to early June and again from mid-August to the end of October.  Weekdays between the hours of 5pm and 8pm are the busiest times of the week and weekends are also very busy during the winter months.  In contrast mid-morning and early afternoon on weekdays are usually slow as well as weekends during the summer months (especially Sundays).

 

Hours of Operation: The projected hours of operation of the North & Crozet Recreation Centers are as follows:

 

Monday - Friday                6:00am  to10:00pm

Saturday                             8:00am  to  8:00pm

Sunday                                  Noon  to  8:00pm

 

Hours per week: 100

 

Hours usually vary some with the season (longer hours in the winter, shorter during the summer), by programming needs, use patterns and special event considerations.

Note: This schedule is based on a guard rotation concept and on utilizing the Head Guards in the rotation schedule (approximately 40 hrs. a week additional).  Based on the pool's size, schedule and estimated use patterns, this level of lifeguard staffing will be necessary to ensure adequate protection for swimmers.  This is an estimate of anticipated guard hours only and actual needs could vary depending on actual use patterns, the final design of the pool and hours of operation.
