  10. Aeryn says:

    Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu,

    Alhamdulillah I’m excited to see this announcement. Insha’Allah I would like to come to swim for the Sunday 10-12p that’s the only time that will be available in my schedule. Will that be the open swim time for women? And will the open swim have a charge or just the classes?

    Jazakallah khairan.

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      WAS,

      We will open separate day & hours for men and women insa’Allah.
      It will be swimming classes and open swim. So if you want to swim without the class you are welcome too.

      The new rules and a small amount of cost will be announced soon. The cost will cover instructors and pool cleaning fee only. So it will be reasonable for everyone insa’Allah.

  11. Rownak says:

    What is the cost for Swimming class please

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      We will announce soon insha’Allah.

  12. Sittana says:

    We really need professional classes for kids structured taking them level to level and an opportunity for free swim times for girls who know how to swim. I also would appreciate beginner classes for women JAK

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      We are trying to establish a professional level as much as we can do. Our first goal is not getting revenue but we have cleaning (chemicals, shocks, bathroom etc) and lifeguards fee. Those expenses need to be covered.

  13. Lolo says:

    For the weekdays I suggest it starts earlier around noon 1 o’clock for example so we can swim and leave before the rush hour (we come from Columbia others come from Virginia). Another comment I would like to share that the pool (water) used to be very cold so my youth daughters refused to swim anymore although they like swimming and have no other place for hijabi women. I hope this issue will be resolved.

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      Thank you for the feedback. We will run as the Diyanet Center of America insha’Allah. So expecting fewer problems.
      Duly noted.

  14. Hanan Abawari says:

    Aselamu Aleykum, Masha Allah this is good news. I want to be a member what is the process?

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      WAS, just hit the form which timing is best for you.
      We will open registration in a few days insa’Allah.

  15. Aminah kami says:

    The time already set is work fine

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      There is actually no time settled up yet.
      We will pick the most wanted 1 weekday and 1-weekend time zone insha’Allah.

  16. Karima says:

    Lots if us are living an hour or more away, I’d prefer something earlier on the weekdays.
    Maybe something from 11-1 or from 1-3. I appreciate it. 🙂

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      We scheduled weekdays earlier.

  17. Noor says:

    Is there any options for an earlier time on the weekdays for open swim?

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      Yes, insha’Allah.

  18. Sarah says:

    Asalaamualaikum, Will you be offering swimming lessons for females soon?

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      WAS, yes we did now 🙂

  19. Sumi says:

    Is the fee per person?

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      Yes, insha’Allah.

  20. Sufs says:

    Assalamu alaykum . If I paid a full year membership end of 2017 do I still need to pay to use the pool now?

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      Walikum Assalaam,

      We canceled the agreements of previous DCA Sports Center Management organizations (because of their lack of service) and decided to run as DCA from now on. Please come by to the Center with your previous payment to that organization, we will take care of the situation.

      1. Sufia says:

        Thank you, I will inshaAllah!

  21. Hiyam says:

    I have taking three season classes and loved it we had great instructors Brandy and Misha.i paid my membership fees which allowed me to use the center but I paid separate for my swimming classes.i would like to continue the swimming classes and hope that will happen soon.do you have the pool schedule out yet?

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      Hi;

      We canceled the agreements of previous DCA Sports Center Management organizations (because of their lack of service) and decided to run as DCA from now on. Please come by to the Center with your previous payment to that organization, we will take care of the situation for open swim usage.
      Swimming classes will start soon as Diyanet Center of America, not any other management company.

  22. Halima says:

    Asalaamu Walaikum. Why does everyone need to wear a swim cap? That’s a unreasonable requirement. No local swimming pools have a requirement for wearing swim caps. Most choose not to wear them. They restrict hearing and change the swimming experience.

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      Walikum Assalaam, We hear you.

      First of all; we wanted to open the pool asap before even settling every detail for not missing this summer. Fixing the pool machines and cleaning processes are not daily yet.

      During this time, we don’t want to hear any complaints about dirty water, especially after ladies use of swimming pool. All chemicals, makeups, hair products are easily changing the quality of water.

      However, we will clean the water daily soon(instead of weekly), after schedules, backup lifeguards and operation details are finalized.

      While we are focusing on background services, we are requesting a very small amount of money from you during these weeks.

      Insha’Allah, less than a month, all classes and details will finalize and we will review the rules with the new results and feedbacks. During this time, sorry for the inconvenience.

      Wassalaam,

      1. Sufia says:

        This answer makes sense, thank you.
        Could you Please also work on the temp of the water?? In the past it has been uncomfortably cold. Just 3-4 degrees warmer would make a huge difference! Thanks! SOOO happy to have the pool re-opening!

        1. DiyanetAmerica says:

          Yes, insh’Allah.

  23. Neighbor says:

    I appreciate that you are asking everyone to wear a swimming cap and to shower. Thank you!
    I would rather take these precautions and swim in a clean pool, then not.
    Another patron suggested selling swimming caps. Sounds a great idea!
    I respect that the DCA needs to generate income in order to maintain the cleanliness and functionality of the property.
    We are happy to support our masjid and the muslim community and businesses.
    Thank you for opening the pool!

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      Thank you for the great support!
      We are trying to resolve asap insha’Allah!

  24. Lisa Gray says:

    When is open swim opened for family’s who want to come swim.

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      We are not able to accept both genders at the same time due to principals even for family.

      Adult males and boys can participate in the Male Sessions,
      Adult females and girls can participate in the Female Sessions as mentioned above.

      Thanks for the understanding.

  25. Aaisha says:

    Salaams, when are going to get schedule for fitness center? Thank you

  26. Muslimah says:

    Assalamu alaikum,

    I am sad that the female open swim has been cancelled. The kids and I have been looking forward to swimming all week. 🙁

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      WAS, we are deeply sorry about that. We will recover for adding more hours when adding more reliable female lifeguards to the team.

  27. Khamy says:

    Assalamu alaykum,

    You don’t have open swim hours in weekends for males?

    My husband will come to chaperone my boys.

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      Walikum Assalaam, insha’Allah we will open males for the weekend soon!

  28. Sara says:

    Can you please tell me if there are any available hours for the pool females right now?

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      Female Open Swim time canceled temporarily. Sorry about the inconvenience.

      1. Tara Mohammed says:

        Can you please explain why? Why not split the weekend; one day for men and one day for women? Women have less access to pools than men do. Thank you!

  29. Tara Mohammed says:

    Why is the women’s swim cancelled but men’s swim open both Saturday and Sunday? Women have less access to pools because we cannot use public pools (men can.)

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      We appreciate your patience.
      The cancelation is because of Lifeguard problems. We are looking to hire dedicated & reliable female lifeguards to open women sessions too.
      Spread the word and help us to find female lifeguards!

      Sorry for the inconvenience.

      1. Tara Mohammed says:

        Will do! Thank you for the quick response.

        1. DiyanetAmerica says:

          Appreciated!
          We will probably open next week insha’Allah.

  30. Naj Adil says:

    I have a 13 month old and I wanted to bring her with me for a swim using a flotation device to keep her above water without having to hold her at all times. It isn’t that large. I will be next to her in the pool at all times. Do you allow these inside your pool?

    Thank you.

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      Depending on the crowd, yes. The Lifeguard will be arranging those requests. If it is disturbing and not allowing others, please not use.

  31. Jocelyn Walker says:

    Quick question I have a 4 year old son. To be clear am I able to bring him swimming or should he accompany his father. I want to respect the community and I apologize if this is a silly question.

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      Thank you for the understanding and nice approach.
      We kindly advise the parents, all the boys with their male parents to the male session.

      So you can send your boy with his dad to the Saturday session 🙂

  32. Abu says:

    Is the fee for kids 5 and under?

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      We will accept free from certain ages and below depending on the crowd. You can bring boys to the male, girls to the female sessions.

  33. Mashaal says:

    ASA, I came to the open swim with my girls last year and loved it! We are patiently waiting for women’s swim to open again. You mentioned you are looking for qualified lifeguards. Would it be okay if I advertise on my FB moms group that there are openings for lifeguards? Also, how would they go about applying if interested? JAK

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      WAS,

      Of course, please spread the word. They can e-mail us; info@diyanetamerica.org or comment here or call us. We are open!

  34. Medinah Lee says:

    Salam, I’m excited to see that this building is opening back up! Are the weekly female classes for all ages?

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      WAS,
      Yes, you can participate in Females Open Swim Classes. It is open to all ages.

  35. Karima says:

    ASA, How deep is the water? And I really love the rules you set like wearing swim caps, looking forward to coming!

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:

      WAS,

      The water is 4ft to 6ft. We have a short water area for children.

  36. Aisha says:

    Is the girls open swim cancelled for this coming Saturday ?

    1. DiyanetAmerica says:
