LEARN TO SWIM!

Based on guidelines from health and government officials, we are offering limited hours and reduced capacity at our branch pools. Please see branch offerings in the table below for more details. We can't wait to have you back in the water with us again!

Y swim lessons are designed for all ages and abilities, starting at 6 months, because everyone deserves to learn this essential life skill.  With a focus on water safety and skill development, the YMCA Swim Lesson program is effective at helping children and adults learn to swim and, most importantly, be safe around water.

 

 

 

2021-2021 Aquatics Safety Procedures

At the YMCA of Greensboro, the health and safety of our program participants, members and staff is our top priority. We will implement COVID-19 transmission prevention protocols based on guidelines from national, state and local health officials, including those from the NCDHHS, the CDC and local health departments.

1. All staff, participants and guardians will undergo health screenings and temperature checks when they arrive at a YMCA facility or grounds. If their temperature is 100.4 or above, they will be asked to leave. If a staff member, participant or guardian is feeling ill, they will not be permitted to participate in the activity. If they have been exposed to or diagnosed with COVID-19, they must quarantine for 14 days and follow the NCDHHS’s guidelines.

2. All participants, guardians and staff will sanitize their hands (using soap and water or hand sanitizer) upon arrival at the Y.

3. All participants and guardians will be required to wear face masks in the facility and on the pool deck. Participants can remove masks when in the water.

4. Face coverings will be worn by all staff members, including while on the pool deck and in the water.

5. There will be no recreational swim allowed before or after the lessons to allow for proper distancing.

6. Participants will not be able to change clothes on the pool deck.

7. All equipment and seating areas will be cleaned and sanitized between sessions.

8. All participants and guardians will have spaced apart assigned seating during lessons.

9. Due to capacity guidelines, only one person will be allowed to accompany the participant to the lesson.

10. Social distancing will be implemented during the lessons and with spectators.
