We are ready to jump back in the water!

Untitled Document
We will be opening our pool for lessons on June 15th, with a few changes to our normal operations. The safety of our staff and customers will be our top priority. We also know that becoming a strong swimmer is a very important life safety skill, so we are thrilled to be getting back into the pool! With that in mind, our first phase of reopening will involve restructuring our classes and normal operations to make sure we stay within our state guidelines for social distancing.

Our “phase one” reopening will have schedule options for Private lessons and Baby classes only. We have made modifications to our pricing and our schedule offerings to best accommodate as many swimmers as possible while adhering to health and safety guidelines.

Our new “Phase One” class structure options:

Due to social distancing and health regulations, we are very limited in the number of private lesson slots available. Registration for classes will open June 6th. Classes will begin on June 15th.


  • 20 minute lesson ($32.50/lesson)

Dolphin Baby

  • 20 minute lesson ($30.00/lesson) (Maximum of 3 swimmers/adult to maintain 6ft distancing)

Dolphin Team

  • 30 minute lesson ($25.00/lesson) (Maximum of 3 swimmers to maintain 6ft distancing)

Reopening Lesson Hours Phase One:

  • Monday: 3:00pm – 7:00pm
  • Wednesday: 3:00pm – 7:00pm
  • Friday: 9:00am – 1:00pm
  • Saturday: 9:00am – 1:00pm

We hope to add more hours soon!

Restructuring for Health and Social Distancing:

  • All employees and Families/swimmers will go through a health pre-screening process before entering the pool. This will include signing a Covid questionnaire and having temperature scans.
  • We ask that only one adult accompany swimmers to the facility.
  • Viewing area will be closed to parents. Parents will observe lessons from the windows on our covered walkway side. We will have a designated area that will allow parents to remain outdoors and 6ft. apart from other families. Parents may also wait in their car.
  • All employees will have face masks or face shields on.
  • Each coach in the pool will have a plastic shield covering their face. These will look similar to a face shield you might have seen at your dentist.
  • Classes will be held at the appropriate social distancing length of 6ft. apart.
  • Changing rooms and showers are closed. Swimmers will need to arrive at the pool in their swimsuit and leave in their swimsuit as changing rooms and showers will not be available until further notice.
  • Bathrooms will be for emergency use only
  • Swimmers will have their own dedicated toys and equipment that will be cleaned and disinfected after each use. Pool toys and teaching equipment will not be shared.
  • Please bring your own goggles. For the time being, Dolphin Academy will no longer let swimmers borrow goggles. For your convenience, you may call the front desk before your class and our customer service team will pull goggles, put them on your account and deliver your swimmer’s goggles to them when they come for their class.

Wellness policy for team members and families:

  • Temperature scans for team members upon arriving
  • If you are ill, please stay home and get well
  • If you have been exposed to COVID-19, please abide by the CDC recommended 14-day quarantine
  • Our enhanced cleaning efforts include:

    • You can be confident that we will continue to maintain our facility at the highest standards of health and safety.
    • All hard surfaces will be sanitized between each class.
    • Nightly deep cleaning
    • Touchless Hand sanitizers will be at all entrances and throughout the facility.

    Chlorine Clean Pools:

    • Our state of the art Ultra-Violet Light Water Purification System works in conjunction with our computerized chlorine system to create a double-layered water treatment process.
    • Our pool water is filtered through this process continually.
    • Our dehumidification system maintains the air quality in the pool area.

    Dolphin Academy Swim School will be following guidelines from the CDC, Georgia Department of Health, Columbia County Health Department, and our industry experts in the United States Swim School Association.
