Yes. Gallery seating is provided for your comfort. For siblings [6 weeks - 8 years] we also provide access to AVAC's Child Care facility for a nominal hourly rate. We always encourage parents to take an active role in their child's swimming progress. Any specific questions or concerns regarding the class or the child's ability may be directed to the Site Manager or Deck Supervisor. We do, however, place great importance on the teacher/student rapport, & the teacher's ability to concentrate on the class.
For that reason we ask that you watch from the gallery to avoid any means of distraction. In order to limit foot traffic & maintain cleanliness, we ask that you access the shower area through the locker rooms, not across the pool deck.
