Ms. Penny said, “I have never been out of the water that long in my whole life”.
“I never enjoyed anything so much as my first time back in the pool after this shutdown”
“This morning my child took his pj’s off and put on his swim suit and goggles. He is more than excited.”
“I’m so glad that you are open. Thank you.”
“Can’t I stay longer?”
“I’m so glad to be out of the house and my kids exercising! I am so ready to get going again.”
What it means to be “green”.
Group Weeklong lessons, group make-up lessons as well as private lessons and semiprivate lessons. We can also have 50% capacity which is 84 people for a building of 9,000 sq. ft. Yeah! Our county is going to “green” on 6/26. Free group make-ups can now be scheduled as well as private makeups for $10 each. Small birthday parties and expanded times for lap swim will all be added to the schedule soon. Masks are still required but some distancing requirements and other requirements are relaxed.

Remote Swim-in Zone!
Swim lessons at your pool.
Swim-in Zone will send an instructor to your (or family or friend’s) home pool and teach swimming to your children and any other children that you chose.
Please see our website or call us for more information. Lessons will be available throughout the summer.
Does my Child still need swim lessons?
When can a parent feel confident in their child’s ability to survive a water related accident in any body of water? When is a child finished with swim lessons?
At Swim-in Zone we teach, safety and survival skills at every lesson in every level such as: wait for the grown-up; grown-up always first in the pool; grown-up must be watching– not reading, on phone or on computer; parents put on and take off lifejackets or puddle jumpers, jumping safely; safety when diving; treading water, rollover to float and breathe, what to do when you fall off the step, wall or noodle; ask a grown-up for help to go after a toy and how to help others by staying safe themselves.
The American Academy of Pediatrics definition of basic swim skills and water competency focuses not only on swim skills or strokes but also on the person’s ability to recognize and respond to dangers, get to where they need to go or float and call for help.
American Academy of Pediatrics 2019
Enter the water; Surface; Turn around; Propel oneself for at least 25 yds.; Float or tread water then; Exit from the water “Water competency is the ability to anticipate, avoid, and survive common drowning situations. The components of water competency include water safety awareness, basic swim skills, and the ability to recognize and respond to a swimmer in trouble.”
“Learning to swim needs to be seen as a component of water competency that also includes knowledge and awareness of local hazards/risks and of one’s own limitations, how to wear a life jacket, ability to recognize and respond to a swimmer in distress, call for help, and to perform safe rescue and CPR.”
Other organizations such aa the American Swim Coaches Association, the United States Swim School Association and The Boy Scouts of America have all de- fined what it takes to be a “safer or competent” swimmer.
So now how many of you, parents, need some swim lessons? We can fix that too!

Yay, we are in green phase! We will be changing a few of our procedures with green phase:
Temperatures will not be taken at the door, but masks are still required.
We have a regular cleaning schedule that our staff will be doing. But we do have cleaning supplies available for you to clean the chairs you use, if you would like.
Is it safe to swim?
The pool is probably the safest place you can be because of the chlorinated water and our UV Light Filtration system. Water chlorinated at 2 ppm will kill all germs and viruses, including the Coronavirus. We take sanitation one step further and have a UV Light Filter, which also kills all germs and pathogens.
Is it safe to be at your facility?
Everyone at Swim-in Zone is committed to safety; it’s a central core to our business. We are doing everything within our power to keep our facility as clean as possible.
We have 3 Certified Pesticide Applicators on staff, which means Penny, Mr. Dan, and Jim are all certified to handle chemicals safely.
Before you enter the building, you will be required to have your temperature checked, be given a squirt of hand sanitizer, and you must be wearing a mask.
After checking in, you will be directed into our party room, where all chairs are distanced apart. We have a designated cleaner in the area who will be wiping down all chairs, changing rooms, bathrooms, as well as opening doors for you.
Each instructor has his/her own door that the children will enter and exit from. Instructors will also have staggered lesson times to help keep everyone distanced.
How will everything be cleaned?
We use a cleaner called Hi-Con 64, which is a hospital-grade disinfectant.
We will have a designated cleaner in the party room, who will wipe down all areas, including chairs, continuously. (changed in Green Phase)
What are the procedures for entering the facility? / How do I come in?
You must be signed up for a lesson prior to entering the building. Our summer session starts on June 15th, and you can register online or call us and sign up on the phone.
Everyone must wear a mask (except children under 4).
Once at our location, you will be required to get a squirt of hand sanitizer, have your temperature taken (by the entryway attendant), and sign a waiver. The waiver only needs to be signed the 1st time you enter the building post-March 2020, which includes COVID-19.
You must then check-in at the Front Desk for attendance and to locate which door your child’s teacher will call your child from.
Once fully checked in, you can go to the Party Room and have a seat. All seats are distanced, and we ask that you please keep your children with you at all times.
Should my child be wearing his/her bathing suit?
For children who are fully potty trained, yes. Anything to make the changing process coming into lessons as smooth as possible.
For Parent/Child classes, we understand that you might not want your child to wear a swimming diaper until you get here. We have changing pads in the party room available as well as the locker rooms.
Should my child wear a mask?
Everyone over the age of 4 must wear a mask to enter the building.
Once your child is invited into the water with the instructor, he/she can take the mask off.
The CDC does not recommend wearing a mask in the water because it will inhibit breathing once it gets wet.
Will the instructor be wearing a mask?
Yes! The instructor will have on a clear, plastic face shield. We are calling them splash guards.
If your child is too upset by this, we can choose to take the mask off. The CDC is not recommending any type of mask in the water, but we are trying to be cautious and conscientious of everyone’s needs.
Can I use the locker rooms?
We are reserving the lockers rooms for the Parent/Child classes only, and only 2 families can use it at a time.
Everyone else should either wrap their children up in a towel and leave (through the exit doors), or quickly use one of our changing rooms and leave.
Can I use the Changing Rooms?
Yes, we have 4 doored changing rooms and 4 curtained off changing areas that you can use after your lessons.
Can I use the Group Shower Area?
Yes, as long as there are not more than 2 families using it at a time.
We retain the right to close this area if we find that families are not distancing.
Who can bring my child to lessons? Can grandparents come?
We prefer only 1 caregiver to bring the child(ren) to lessons.
We are okay if the grandparent is the caregiver bringing your child(ren) to lessons. We prefer only 1 caregiver.
At this time, we prefer to not have extra family come to watch the lessons because of the limits we have for the number of patrons in the building You are more than welcome to take a video of the lessons and share it. Please tag us on social media too!
What happens when the lesson is over? / How do I leave?
Your child’s teacher will return your child through the door she originally came into the pool from.
We would prefer a quick exit of wrapping your child up in a towel and leaving.
If you need to rinse off and change, changing rooms are available.
Everyone will exit through the exit door located next to the 2nd bathroom in the party room.
