Safety Information

Guidelines To Keep Our Families & Employees Safe & Healthy

We are having a great time welcoming our families back to the Aquatic Zone and look forward to developing safe and confident swimmers once again. We appreciate your continued support in the Aquatic Zone. Please take a moment to review the steps we have put in place to keep the Aquatic Zone and all who visit us safe and cared for.

It is important to our company that we continue to operate in a safe and socially responsible manner. Drowning prevention is an essential component for families in America. At the Aquatic Zone, we are committed to teaching our families safety skills around water and the life saving skill of learning to swim.

The world has changed dramatically in the past year. However, water safety remains just as important as always. Drowning is the #1 cause of unintentional injury-related death among children ages 1-4 years old. Resuming swim lessons with the Aquatic Zone is one of the most valuable ways you can keep your children safer in and around the water. Swimming safety is important for all children. According to the National Institutes of Health, participation in formal swim lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by 88% among children 1-4 years old.

What You Can Count On From Us:

Personal Protective Gear

Face coverings are optional for fully vaccinated persons   Face coverings should NOT be worn in the pool.  At this time:

  • Face shields will be worn by swim instructors while in the pool.
  • Acrylic sneeze guards will be on the Front Desk counters.

Personal Protective Equipment will be worn by The Aquatic Zone School Swim Instructors and Staff. Proper bins for disposal will be available.

Our Structure For A Safer Environment at this time, The Aquatic Zone will follow our existing  traffic flow.  Health and safety for all who enter The Aquatic Zone is priority #1. With this intention, our commitment at The Aquatic Zone is to provide you and your family with the very best learn to swim experience and healthy environment. Safety First, Always!

We are relying on families to stay home if they have any symptoms.
Water fountain is closed until further notice and clients encouraged to bring their own water.

Teaching Ratio’s For The Aquatic Zone

The number of swimmers  in a class is returning back to the 4 to 1 ratio.  We are going to make a permanent adjustment to our Frogs class and keep that at a 3 to 1 ratio.   We will continue to monitor and adjust our procedures based on the safest practices and recommendations in our industry. We will post on our website, social media and at The Aquatic Zone swim center when information adjusts and new procedures begin. If you have any questions, please contact us at info@theaquaticzone.com. We are here to help.

Every family will receive their assigned colored teaching stations on the  monthly invoices.

Make-ups

We schedule makeups on the day you would like to attend the swim class.  As always, you must cancel within 4 hours of the class and miss the class before a make up is given.  Make up’s are first come first serve and every account gets one free courtesy make up per month to us.  Make up lessons are available 7 days a week.  Call us or send a text message @714.450.2497 to make easy arrangements for the make up lessons.

Level, Day and Time

How do we get our kids in the right level? We recommend all swimmers return in the level they left. As always, we assess swimmers each day and make sure they are in a place where they can succeed.

Changing Area, Showers, Lobby and Pool Decks

We are counting on all of our Aquatic Zone families to continue to respect social distancing while in the office, on the pool decks and around our changing areas. We highly encourage families to come and leave in swim gear as much as possible to reduce the number of people in the changing area before and after lessons.

Showers will be closed until guidelines change. Please dry off and exit the building following your lesson. There will be flow stickers to guide your way with ease. Bring the minimal amount of personal items into the swim school.  Parents must remain in the building while they have a child in swim lessons.

Sanitation Measures

Surfaces

We will continue to clean all common surfaces during our operating hours. Our surfaces will be disinfected multiple times per day. These areas include (not limited to): workstations, countertops, doorknobs, and chairs. Bathrooms, staff break rooms and other common areas will be disinfected frequently. Professional deep cleaning will take place on a nightly basis. Hand sanitizer will be placed at various locations throughout our swim center. All shared items will be removed. Soap and water are available to all customers and employees. Disinfectant and related supplies are available to all employees.
