Thomas High School Pool is CLOSED for renovations. Typically the Thomas pool is used because the size, depth of shallow end, air temperature, and water temperature is more conducive when teaching swimming. We will be using the Webster Aquatic Center for swim lessons for this session instead. The aquatic center is a very large, multi use facility that houses competitive swimming, fitness classes, and more. It is deeper and a little cooler for that reason. Therefore, we will only be offering classes for children 4 years old & up.
Due to COVID safety concerns, we will only be offering private swim lessons at this time. Swimmers MUST wear a mask at all times while in the facility, except while actively swimming. Private lessons will consist of 4 classes for 30 minutes in duration each week. Locker rooms will be open but we highly encourage swimmers to arrive water ready and limit time in the locker room. No more than 1 spectator per swimmer will be allowed in the facility. All spectators will be permitted to watch from the balcony area upstairs after their swimmer is dropped off. Please maintain social distance and always wear a mask in the facility that covers your mouth/nose at all times.
Registration for private swim lessons starts December 17th @ 8am online ONLY. We have a *NEW* registration system (link below) and you will need to create a new account with us. We encourage you to do so prior to the date of registration.
