Swim Lessons


Aquatics -
Winter/Spring 2021

Under the guidelines set by the state, we have adjusted the format of our swim lessons.  In order to maintain social distancing outside of a household unit, certain levels of swim lessons (listed below) will be required to have a household member at least 16 years of age in the water with the child.  Masks will be required by everyone while in the building, but may be taken off when in the water.

Levels requiring family member in the water:  Frog, Octopus, Sea Turtle, Jellyfish, and Angelfish

Levels not requiring family members is the water:  Stingray, Seal/Sea Otter, and Shark/Dolphin
