Waterworks' mission has always been to educate and motivate individuals to be safer and learn proper swimming technique. It is important to our company that we re-open in a safe, science-based, and socially responsible manner.
In collaboration with public health officials, the United States Swim School Association, and facility operators, Waterworks has created a safe facility use plan that is compliant with public health directives.
Please take a moment to review the steps we are taking below. Keep in mind, this is not the full list. To view the full summary, please click on the button below.
Safety & Social Distancing Measures:

- Everyone will need to maintain at least 6 feet distance from each other with the exception of family members who share the same household.
- Initially, we will only be allowing private and semi-private swim lessons.
- Semi-private swim lessons will be 10 minutes in length. The Instructor will teach each student separately in the semi-private lesson.
- If there are two siblings (who share the same household) in the same semi-private lesson, they will receive 20 minutes.
- Swim lessons will be spaced out (6 feet or more) in the pool.

Chlorine Clean Pools:
