My daughter’s confidence has grown

My daughter’s confidence has grown more than I’ve ever heard from anyone else doing other swim lessons through gold fish or the ymca or anywhere. Love these classes!

Happy Parent

The staff were very prepared

The staff were very prepared and there was a great, safe system in place our first day back. I do hope we can someday get back the 5 mins of play at the end of the session. My girls love that part as much as the rest. Thank you!

The precautions seem well thought out

The bench spacing around the pool has been great. The biggest challenge is walking by other swimmers or having them walk by on the way in and out of the pool area. Nothing is without risk, especially these days, but the precautions seem well thought out, and everyone is taking them seriously.

Solid re-opening plan

It’s been amazing! Thank you for putting together a solid re-opening plan. With the low number of kids, spread out, we feel super safe!! The instructors are fully masked with a shield, adding the protection there.
