Learn to swim together! "Families who swim together, stay together"

We are excited to offer this new intensive family approach to our learn to swim experience. We provide each family with an on-deck swim instructor who will guide your family through the American Red Cross LTS curriculum. All ages and swim levels are encouraged!

How it works: 

Families will sign up for a designated time slot within a swim session. We will offer 4 time slots for each swim session, there will be a total of 5 swim sessions. Each family will fill out an electronic form that will be submitted to their assigned swim instructor prior to the first day of lessons. The form will ask about your child's swim ability with the goal of obtaining as much information as necessary to best match an instructor with your family unit. 

Intensive week long lessons will consist of 4 weeks of Saturday AND Sunday swim lesson. These lessons will be 30 minutes long and will be tailored to each family's needs. There will be a limit of 4 family members per time slot. All family members must reside in one household. Any combination of parents/guardians and children will be allowed. Parent/guardian's physical presence in the water is required regardless of swimmers age or swim level. This is due to the fact that the parent/guardian will work under the direction of the swim instructor on deck. Parents/ guardian's may have to swim in the deep end of the pool. The swim instructor will provide step-by-step instructions to parents/guardians in order to facilitate the learning process. At no time will a swim instructor have physical contact with a swimmer, the only exception will be in the case of an emergency. 

It is the responsibility of parents/guardians to monitor the health of their households. Any swimmer may be asked to leave the facility if sickness is suspected. Please ensure that any member of the family experiencing COVID-19 symptoms does not enter the facility. Temperature checks of every entering swimmer will be taken prior to being admitted into the facility. Please recognize that this is in an effort to protect everyone's health and safety. 

Swim instructors teaching from the pool deck will be required to wear a mask, if proper distance of 12 feet can be maintained instructor will be permitted to take their masks off to communicate effectively with participants. If participants have a hearing impairment and require an instructor to wear a face shield instead of a mask, please give us a call or document this in the additional information section of the Family Swim Lesson form  so we can provide our instructors with the appropriate PPE. Masks should be worn at all times except for in the water during your lesson or while taking a shower. 

All swimmers should arrive for their designated swimming time slot having already taken a shower and changed into their bathing suit. Locker rooms will be available for use, however, capacity will be limited. Our goal is to reduce the amount of time that swimmers spend in common areas. Masks are required at all times except while in the shower and while swimming in the pool.

Please note that we have built in extra time between each swim session and have a small rotating group of instructors that will either be teaching from the pool deck or cleaning the surfaces of the facility, including all learn to swim equipment. 

As stated above, the session will last for 4 weeks and meet twice a week. These intensive family lessons will run Saturday and Sunday starting February 20th and end March 14th. There will be no make-ups for classes missed and no refunds for classes that cannot be attended. When a family signs up for lessons, they are preventing another family from signing up. Last minute changes to family members attending lessons will not be allowed as to preserve the teaching environment. Due to the restrictions that we face as a facility, there can be no exceptions.
