FAQ re Swim Lessons in the Rain

Light rain, yes, we’ll still have lessons.
Hard rain (where we can’t see the bottom of the pool) or lightning and/or thunder, no.

IF THUNDER IS HEARD, WE ARE REQUIRED TO SUSPEND ACTIVITIES FOR 30 MINUTES.

If you’re uncertain, you may call the pool 206-772-1950 and ask when the last thunder was heard.

Also, if you have a reluctant swimmer, or one who easily feels chilled, you may want to keep them home if it’s a cold and/or rainy day.

Indoor/Outdoor Swimming Pool Safety

Lightning’s behavior is random and unpredictable. We recommend a very conservative attitude towards it. Preparedness and quick responses are the best defenses towards the lightning hazard.

Swimming pools are connected to a much larger surface area via underground water pipes, gas lines, electric and telephone wiring, etc. Lightning strikes to the ground anywhere on this metallic network may induce shocks elsewhere.

The National Lightning Safety Institute recommends the following swimming pool safety procedures:

Designate a responsible person as the weather safety lookout. That person should keep an eye on the weather. Use a “weather radio” or the Weather Channel or other TV program to obtain good localized advanced weather information.
When thunder and/or lightning are first noticed, use the Flash-To-Bang (F-B) method to determine its’ rough distance and speed. This technique measures the time from seeing lightning to hearing associated thunder. For each five seconds from F-B, lightning is one mile away. Thus, a F-B of 10 = 2 miles; 15 = 3 miles; 20 = 4 miles; etc. At a F-B count of thirty, the pool should be evacuated. People should be directed to safe shelter nearby.
Pool activities should remain suspended until thirty minutes after the last thunder is heard. The distance from Strike A to Strike B to Strike C can be some 5-8 miles away. And it can strike much farther away. Why take a chance with lightning?

Teach this safety slogan:
“If you can see it, flee it; if you can hear it, clear it.”

Aqua Zumba® 2014

2015 – We plan  to again have AZ and will update this posting for days and times.

2014 Information

Aqua Zumba® is a ‘pool-party’ that includes the same great music and steps as a regular Zumba class, but are performed a bit slower than usual so that you can really take advantage of the water resistance. Aqua Zumba is performed so your upper body is above water (about armpit depth), using your arms below water to help with balance and to gain more resistance through your moves. Aqua Zumba is great for those who have joint problems or can’t take a regular Zumba class. Spread the word!

Classes held rain or shine.

Saturdays from 1:00 – 2:00 pm – July & August
Mondays from 6:00 – 7:00 pm – July & August

September 1, Labor Day – Join us for our Second Annual Surf & Turf Zumba Party!
