NEW:  Due to COVID-19, there are several changes to be aware of with our lesson program:

  • Instructors will teach from the deck only.  If you have a child registered in Parent-Child, Pre-School, Beginner 1, 2, Advanced 3, or Older Beginner, the child must have a parent/guardian with them in the water.  It is preferred this person is from your same household.
  • Face coverings will be required to be worn at all times while in the facility, (entering, exiting, etc) EXCEPT when in the water during the lesson. 
  • Use of locker rooms will be limited.  Please come dressed for class. 
  • Class size is limited.  Class sizes and offerings have been greatly reduced to help promote social distancing and safety protocol.  
  • As this is is a fluid situation, we will communicate any changes to classes or protocol as soon as they are known.
