  • The 2023 AquaKids Annual (per) Swimmer Registration Fee was on your January invoice. Hence the reason for the more than usual amount. Our Annual Swimmer Registration Fee is $80 for every swimmer in our program! If you joined after September 1, 2021, you already have paid this fee. SoFlo registered swimmers pay this fee through SoFlo with your Booster Club membership fee.

  • We keep the pool water temperature at 84 degrees throughout the winter! On those rare occasions when we have very "chilly" days, we will provide "Cold Weather Make-up" Days for our Angel and Leopard SHARKS!
  • NO Dogs on the Pool Deck! Please, as per Dade County Health Department regulations, we are not allowed to have animals on the pool deck!
  • "Remind" app for practice and lesson cancellations! Please utilize the remind app system we've set up to notify canceling lessons and practices!
