1:1 Swimming Lessons 

UPDATE 8/21/23

Dear Swim Families,

It has been a very difficult decision, but we here at WEU must announce that we will be closing our doors and concluding pool programming. This includes swim lessons, scuba lessons and other pool based programs. We had hoped to continue keeping swim lessons open this fall, but with the property sale now finalizing, it is time to retire.

We are grateful for the support of our WEU families over these past 20 plus years here in Southwick.

We WILL be running September swim lessons. The schedule will be open for families to use up their current/previously purchased credits and unexpired packages with us. The utilization of lesson credits must be completed by September 30, 2023, any unused lessons or partial packages will be void after this date.

September lessons will open this Monday August 21st by 8pm.

We appreciate your support, understanding, and patience. This has been a very difficult decision for our family. We know the adjustment will be a challenging one for many, ourselves included.

Thank you again for learning, growing, and swimming with us.

If you have questions or concerns please email us directly at campweu@gamil.com for assistance.

Swimming Evaluation

Evaluation

 

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 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. This is simply best practice for the health and wellness of yours and other families. We DO and have always had a 36 hour cancelation policy. Cancelations inside that window are not credited or rescheduled without a Dr. note. Please don't ask for exceptions. 

 

3. Face masks are encouraged but not required. 

 

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.

 

Actions of Facility

1. Please enter the pool area through double doors that go directly into our party room. This will be the entrance and exit for lessons. The the glass pool doors are closed during winter months to help keep our pool area warm. You’ll remove your shoes when you enter, so no street shoes are worn on pool decks.*Exit will be leaving through these same doors.

 

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. 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.
