Covid - 19 Operating Policies and Procedures on bottom of page. 

1:1 Swimming Lessons 



The place to start swimming with W.E.U. is a private evaluation appointment. This serves as a facility introduction as well as a 20-minute private swimming lesson to determine proper private or group placement for your swimmer moving forward.  If you’ve been away from lessons with us for over one year, an evaluation is required to return lessons. (*Families with multiple swimmers; an evaluation will need to be scheduled for each child. We do not offer semi-private evaluation swims)

WEU New Swim Lesson Policies for Families, Staff, and Facility 


Please take a moment to review the changes to our facility so that our reopening can be smooth for everyone. 


Actions of Families

1. We encourage families to come to lessons with just one adult with their swimmer, doing your best to leave extra adults and children at home if possible. Upon entrance please sanitize your hands (adults and children)


2. If you or anyone in your family is feeling ill, or have any concerns of a potential exposure please under no circumstances come to your scheduled lesson. 


3. All adults, please wear a mask while inside the pool area. Any type of mask is acceptable cloth, bandana, etc. 


4. Swim caps required for all students ages 10 years and older. Younger children: ALL long hair must be tied up in a ponytail completely, to remain off of students face.


5. Our three changing rooms are going to become single-use, one child or family at a time for bathroom and quick changes only. In the summer most kids come with their bathing suit under their clothes and go home in a towel or bathrobe. Please save showers, and hair drying  for home during this time. 


Actions of Facility

1. NEW One-Way traffic for entrance and exit. *Please enter the pool area through double doors that go directly into our party room. Not the glass pool doors! You’ll remove your shoes and place just inside the pool area on wooden racks. *Exit will be leaving through the pool glass doors by the pools deep end (our previous entrance and exit). Signs will be posted.


2. We have blocked off time during lesson shifts to help spread out families coming and going from their lessons. During this time the staff will also be doing an additional bathroom and surface clean. 


3. Our instructors are being fever screened the night before and the morning of their lesson days.


4. Staff will be wearing buff gaiters during lessons to keep their mouths and noses covered when possible. Staff/instructors will submerge themselves after each student in the pool.


5. We reserve the right to refuse your child's entry into the pool if they come to the facility and appear sick.. ie: coughing, stuffy nose, wheezing, skin hot to the touch, etc. 

While Covid-19 has changed so much of our daily lives, it hasn't changed who we are or what we love.

We are looking forward to being back in the water with your swimmer, helping build the skills and confidence that are so critical to safety. Thank you for your continued support.
