Class Descriptions

In compliance with the CDC, NYS and the ECDOH guidelines, our swim instructors will now be teaching from the deck as masks are not allowed to be worn in the pool. This process will now involve more family involvement as we will need a parent or guardian to be in the pool with your child during lessons. Deck space is limited so only one additional family member is allowed on deck during the swim lesson. There will be a socially distanced marked space for you to stand in. Toys/equipment will be limited as sharing is not allowed. Cleaning and disinfecting will happen between each class.
