In the case of all the lanes being filled up for lap swimming and others wanting to lap swim, we will start doing circle swim. Circle swim is where two people swim in one lane and you will stay on the right side of the lane if you are sharing a lane with someone. So in the case of circle swim you will swim down on the right side of the lane and then back down on the right side of the lane sharing the lane with someone else.
Here at ERC, we would like for everyone to enjoy the pool and have a great time. But, with that being said if there is a child in the pool that is 6 years of age or younger there must be a adult in the water to accompany them. We have a 1 adult=2 children rule. So, 1 adult can count to watch 2 children that are 6 years of age or younger and if anymore than 2 get in then another adult must get in. An adult is anyone 18 years or older.
Parents are more then welcome to watch from the viewing room right next to the pool. This gives the kid confidence that their parent is there watching and supporting them during this time.
Swim lessons depending on the level are from 20-30 minutes in length for their lesson.
For each type of swim lesson we offer we like to break them down into age groups and if your kid excels or is struggling in a certain level than our swim lesson teachers can modify their lessons to the kids level of swimming.
Parent and Child Lessons: Ages 6 months-3 years old
Preschool Levels 1-3: Ages 4-5 years old
Level 1&2/Private Lessons: Ages 5&up
