Dear neighbours,

Various restrictions (such as reduced class size and signup restrictions) have been put in place again this year for swimming lessons. Please note that COVID19 policies restrict instructor interaction during swim lessons and do not allow instructors to be in the pool with students. ONE parent (or authorized guardian) MUST be in the water with EACH student in levels 1 through 4 and this guardian must be a confident swimmer. Parents with children in levels 5 and above do not need to be on deck, but must be available via cell phone in case of emergency.

Please review the information below to get familiarized with the new process.

Lesson times and days

At the end of each lesson, the swimming instructors will spend 15-min cleaning and disinfecting washroom and surfaces before the next lesson start on the hour.

  • 2 classes at 9:00am – 9:45am:
  • 2 classes at 10:00am – 10:45am
