Swimming Lessons Postponed

Updated June 10th, 2020

With the announcement that water recreational facilities and swimming pools can re-open, at this time, we are unsure when we'll be open for swim lessons and recreational swim.

If you have registered for spring and summer swim lessons, you will be receiving a full refund due to our closure.

Once a decision has been made in regards to re-opening our pool, we'll be posting an update on our website and social media.
