The 2021 Pool Season is fast approaching! With that, we're sure that given how different last year's season looked, you may have some questions regarding the 2021 season. Below are some key areas you might be wondering about. Although we may not have all the answers yet, we will continue to follow the lead of federal, state, and local health officials and will keep you as up to date as we can once we have been given more definitive information.

Swim Lessons

We are anticipating that it is likely COVID restrictions will be the same for 2021 as it was for 2020. For the 2020 season, we had a limit of 75 people (50% capacity) at the pool at a time. Swim lessons (including swim team) average 50 kids per class. Current limits for indoor pools are 25% capacity and outdoor pools are 50% capacity. As the season draws nearer, we are cautiously optimistic these capacities will be able to increase. However, if they are not, we will likely need to for-go lessons this year.

Tennis Lessons

Per the February 4, 2021 Epidemic Order, Contact/Non-Contact sports are permitted. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Guidance for Athletics advises that masks should always be worn during indoor and/or contact sports, except where doing so is unsafe. Our tennis lessons average 35 kids per class. Given the availability of two sets of courts, we feel confident we can social distance and provide lessons safely.

Swim Team

We are anticipating that it is likely COVID restrictions will be the same for 2021 as it was for 2020. For the 2020 season, we had a limit of 75 people (50% capacity) at the pool at a time. Swim lessons and swim team average 50 kids per class. We are keeping in communication with other area pools to help make decisions collaboratively. In the meantime, area pool leadership are putting together a swim meet schedule in anticipation of being able to have swim meets.

Guest Passes

The normal number of guest passes for members is 6 per member household. Last year, with operating at 50% capacity, we therefore dropped the number of guest passes to 3 to account for it. If we again have to open at a limited capacity we will likely need to limit guest passes to 3 again. If we can open at full capacity, we will be able to offer 6.

Upcoming Events

We're cautiously optimistic we'll be able to move forward with the many fun events each season has to offer.
