Updated Health and Safety Standards

We passionately believe in teaching the lifesaving skill of swimming and are committed to doing whatever we can to reduce the risk of spreading the Covid_19 virus. Listed below are the steps we are taking to be the safest and best school possible for your family. We are always willing to listen to any and all suggestions you may have for our company.

For your health and safety, we have modified the Gold Medal Swim School customer experience according to the guidelines set out by the Governor.

  • All Gold Medal Swim School staff members will be masked while working including instructors while in the water teaching.
  • We continue to use both chlorine and OZONE sanitation which has a 99.99% effective ‘kill rate’ of viruses and bacteria in our pool.
  • All students and caregivers will enter and exit at the new designated areas. Class times for drop-off and pick-up are now staggered to maintain distance of at least 6 feet between people who don’t live together. Baby Swim and Learn to Swim classes will run 25 minutes with a 5 minute transition time. Boot Camps, Adult, and Swim Team classes will run for 55 minutes with a 5 minute transition time.
  • We have implemented symptom screening of staff AND participants through temperature checks upon arrival.
  • All teaching equipment use has been reduced and the sharing of equipment is prohibited unless it is sanitized between uses. We have ceased the sharing of items that are difficult to clean, sanitize, or disinfect or that are meant to come in contact with the face (for example, goggles and snorkels.)
  • All families are asked to limiting any nonessential visitors to class as lobby seated has bee reduced and chairs spaced with CDC and government suggested distance of 6 feet. Located in a basket under each chair: Hand sanitizer and disinfecting spray (CDC approved to kill COVID-19) with paper towels to wipe your seating area before sitting down.
  • All swim teams run socially distanced with 3 students/lane and at separate ends of the pool. We have cancelled all competitive swim team meets to prevent mixing of individuals from different geographical locations.
  • The following areas have been closed to lower the amount of frequently touched areas: Retail check-in, playroom and shower area
  • We have reduced class ratios: Class Ratios are subject to change, the safety of our families and staff are always our top priority.

  • All staff members are expected to do the following:
  • Pass a temperature check prior to the beginning of the work shift.
  • Expectation of all Administrative and Deck Staff members will wash hands every 20 minutes.
  • Wear a mask upon entering the building and while working all shifts.
  • Notify a supervisor if they are not feeling well.
  • Pool staff will have uniforms washed between each shift.

  • We request the following of our clients so we can be as safe as possible TOGETHER:
  • All adults over the age of 11 years are required to wear a mask upon entering the building in accordance with city and county ordinances.
  • Use hand sanitizer prior to entering the facility and once seated in the lobby.
  • As much as possible, please leave personal belongings in your car to lower the amount of contact points in the lobby.
