Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

When is registration?

Registration is seasonal for group swim lessons. See registration timelines here.  Y members benefit from a priority registration window. 

How long are group swim lessons?

Lessons will be offered for 30 minutes in length once or twice a week. Fees will adjust based upon total number of classes offered in a session.

What are your safety protocols for swimming lessons?

There is nothing more important to us than the safety of you, our members, our staff, and our volunteers. Guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), local health agencies, and public officials has been critical as we've updated our policies and reopened or facilities and programs.

  • Each lesson will include up to 6 child/adult participant pairs. 
  • Staff will disinfect all touch points and equipment before every lesson. Instructional equipment will be limited to kick boards, kick sticks, and pull buoys and will be disinfected between users.
  • We’ve also improved air quality in our buildings, including limiting air re-circulation and maximizing fresh air intake.
Do I need to be a Y member to sign up for group swim lessons?

No, however Y members do get member-only benefits including lower pricing and priority registration.

How many parents or guardians are allowed on the pool deck?

To limit our building capacity, we are limiting the number of guests on the deck to one parent or guardian per swim lesson student.
