Update effective 10/25/21: Beginning October 25, 2021, per King County mandate, in order to enter recreational facilities and indoor pools, all persons 12 years of age or older must show either proof of full COVID-19 vaccination, or a negative COVID-19 test result from an approved test administered within 72 hours of visit.

The following information has been updated to reflect CURRENT guidelines in place. Everything is subject to change based on updated guideline recommendations from the Governor and the CDC.)

Please read the information below prior to attending lessons.

SAFER FACILITY (RENTON)

UPDATE effective 10/25/21: Per the King County Health mandate, all guests 12 & older (students, parents, visitors, contractors, etc.) are required to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or an approved negative test result to enter the facilities.

  • In Renton, once you show your proof the first time, we will note it in your portal so you don’t have to show it every single visit.
  • In Bellevue, you will need to show proof at the front desk every time you visit.
  • In Kirkland, you may only need to show proof the first time; however, we recommend having a copy with you each week to be safe.

Masks Required: Masks must be worn by everyone over 6 years old while in the facility (except when in the water.) This includes everyone who has been vaccinated.

Make-ups, Open Swims & Parties: All extra swim opportunities are suspended at this time. 

Suspended Amenities: To reduce the spread of germs, we are suspending access to books, toys, hair dryers, swim gear loaners, and the playroom.

Personal Belongings: Please label and keep track of all your belongings. 

Online Portals: Our easy-to-use parent portal enables parents to view their schedules, manage their accounts, and more – thus reducing face-to-face contact with staff.
