FAST Swim Lesson Safety Guidelines @ CRC:

  • Swimmers will need to wear swim gear to and from the pool facility. Locker rooms are off limits; however, the facility is open and bathroom use is available.
  • Parents will be allowed to drop their swimmers off at the front entrance where we will have a staff member taking temperatures and guiding swimmers to their swim class.
  • Parents will not be allowed to enter the pool deck area as the CRC management wants to be in compliance with Pima County restrictions. They have given the option for parents to view lessons off deck (through/over the fence). 
  • We have cut our normal class size down to four swimmers in each group (Level 1 – Flying Fish). We will not run Parent/Tot classes while social distancing measures are in place, we hope to be able to offer them again in the future! 
  • All instructors will be taking daily temperature checks prior to teaching, and will be required to wear plastic face shields or face masks during each lesson.

Class Registration: 

Registration is ongoing so you can register whenever your child is ready to start swimming. Think of each swim class for each child as an item that you are purchasing and putting into your shopping cart. Different days and different children are different items. Everything can go into the shopping cart and purchased together at the end of the registration process. Classes will be pro-rated dependent on the timing of the month that you are initiating your registration. Once registration has been completed, you will receive a receipt which means you can begin swim lessons immediately. After the first month, you will be billed on a monthly recurring basis until you cancel your lessons. REMEMBER: You must email us at [email protected] in order to request cancelation, verbal cancelations will not be accepted.
