BUILDING CONFIDENCE IN THE WATER

Swim Lessons (all lessons are 25 minutes in length)
 

  • Lesson rules and procedures are subject to change based on Washington State COVID-19 guidelines
     
  • Parents MUST be in the water for ALL Levels, except Youth Levels 4-6. For the Youth Levels 4-6, parents are not required to be in the water but must remain on the Pool Deck (shoes off please). Parents must be one-on-one (One Parent and One Child) in the water
     
  • Due to our capacity limit mandates by the State of Washington, only ONE PARENT PER CHILD allowed in the pool or on the pool deck. Children not directly participating in swim lessons are not allowed on the pool deck due to capacity limits.
     
  • Changing rooms are available. 
    • 1st Floor - Family Changing Rooms

    • 2nd Floor - Men's & Women's Changing Rooms (formerly the Boys & Girls Locker Rooms). Kids ages 14 & younger must be accompanied by an adult. Day lockers available, please provide your own lock and remove daily.
       
  • It is important for children to be placed in the correct swim level based on their current abilities. Students in a class that is too challenging will have to be placed in a lower level that may be full. If you are unsure of what level to register your child, please contact Eleanor, Aquatics Lead Guard, 360-255-0637 or ewellman@whatcomymca.org.
     
  • Please arrive for swim lessons NO MORE than 7 minutes before your lesson time for proper social distancing. When your lesson is over, please leave immediately so we are able to clean the pool deck prior to the next activity.
