May 11, 2020:   Governor Cooper has issued Executive Order No. 138 which contains a provision which keeps Public Swimming Pools closed until (at a minimum) May 22nd.  We expect to know more about next steps for NC prior to the order’s expiration.  Pools are currently being prepped for opening and are in the process of being inspected by the County.  If we need to cancel any Swim Lessons due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all registrants will receive a full refund.
May 21, 2020:  All Swim Lessons have been cancelled for Summer 2020.
