Swimming lessons will look a little different during Covid.  This fall instructors will be teaching a hybrid program of in and out of water.  At times a parent may be required to participate in the water as the hands-on helper for levels Sea Turtle to Swim Kids Level 4 or if a child needs assistance.  Class sizes will be reduced.

FAMILY LESSONS:  We have created a plan for all ages to enjoy swimming lessons in a family environment.  We are now offering Family Swimming Lessons.  Family lessons are geared for a parent(s) to be in the water with up to 2-3 children with a maximum number of 4 people being in the family pod.  The instructor will teach multiple levels if required. An initial assessment will be conducted on the first day to determine if a second parent will be required as a second hands-on helper. 

To register for Family Lessons, we ask that the parent register for the lesson under “Swimming Lessons”.  When you register, you will be prompted to list your children’s names.  It would also be helpful if you indicate their swim level.  If you have questions, please contact the pool at 613-584-2000 ext. 181.

Programming will follow safety guidelines set by Red Cross, Lifesaving Society and Renfrew County Public Health.
