Race for Life 25th & 26th June
Roko are playing a huge part in the York race for life on the York Knavesmire this year!  We are sponsoring an obstacle on the Pretty Muddy Event on Saturday 25th and we have a team of instructors warming up over 10,000 people across the whole weekend! We would love to see you and your families there!  The Pretty muddy event is an obstacle course over 5KM on Saturday 25th June and the 5KM & 10KM ‘race for life’ is Sunday 26th June! If you would like more information about the event or how to  volunteer or would like to sign up for either (or both) of these events, please visit www.raceforlife.org

Booking and Cancelling Group Fitness Classes
We have a booking system in place for all Group X classes.  We ask ALL members to book for each class in advance and remember to cancel if you cannot attend. A lot of the classes we have on the timetable are very well attended and in some cases we end up having members waiting on a list for a cancellation. It is very frustrating for members who are waiting, to not attend a class because it is full, only to find that they could have actually attended because members who are booked on did not cancel!  Please book for every class and please remember to cancel if you cannot attend! All classes can be booked and cancelled with the reception team. Many thanks for your cooperation.

Adult Group Swimming Lessons
We have 4 places remaining on our adult improver course on a Wednesday evening 7:30-8pm.  This course is for adults who can already swim and are confident in the pool, but are looking to improve or learn new strokes.  The price of a 10 week course is £65 for members & £85 for non-members. The next course will run from Wednesday 25th May – Wednesday 27th July.  If you miss the first couple of weeks you will only be charged for the weeks that are remaining on the course. If you would like any more information about adult course or other lessons we offer for adults, please contact jarcher@york.roko.co.uk

Children’s Parties at Roko
In our last newsletter we advertised pool parties at Roko. After looking at the demand and space for these parties we have handed the party operations over to the child care experts at First Steps. They are excited to now offer a variety of parties at Roko from super heroes, pamper, bouncy castle through to pool parties. If you would like more information please contact Amanda at Amanda@firststepsnursery.net  

Swimming Lessons 
The current swim term will run from Monday 23rd May – Sunday 31st July.  As we are at the start of a new term we asking all parents/guardians politely, to read the pool rules below and follow them:

It is Roko policy that if your child has lessons in the big pool, we request that your child is dropped off with the swim instructor, and then picked up once the lesson is finished. We will not allow parents/guardians to stay on the main poolside as it is the rules of the club and we have no viewing area.

Here is a list of other pool/club rules that we politely ask you to follow:
*Children who are not members may NOT swim before or after their lesson.
*Adults who are not members may NOT swim at all unless a day pass is purchased.
*All shoes are to be covered with blue shoe covers
*No mobile phones, no laptops/tablets, no pushchairs and no food on poolside

Thank you for your cooperation.
