AVAC Swim SchoolŪ lessons & programs update.

Dear Swim School Families,

After a successful reopening of tennis and pickleball for same households last week, we're preparing to open Summer Camps for Essential Workers starting Monday 6.1.20. If you work for an essential business, outdoor business, government, or any workers who need to perform minimum basic operations for their business, your children are welcome to attend our low-ratio Jr.FIT Camps.

While Santa Clara County phase 2 shelter-in-place remains and the majority of AVAC's services are classified as phase 3, our team is READY. We've scheduled city and county inspections for next week and remain in conversation with state authorities on what a safe reopen looks like for our industry. Our comprehensive AVAC® Safe Reopen Plan addresses each of our programs, areas, and amenities with the AVAC® Swim Schools 8 Legs of Safety. Keep visiting our announcements page for these plans and updates on what's open at AVAC®.

In addition to the above, AVAC® is actively advocating for the immediate safe-reopen of swim lessons for drowning prevention in Santa Clara County. Drowning remains the #1 cause of death for young children in the US1, and a leading cause of death for people up to age 14. Formal swim lessons can reduce the risk of drowning2, there is no way to teach water survival or swim skills remotely, and even with May being Drowning Prevention Month, our local swim schools are all shutdown. Further, CDC has recently published that properly disinfected pools, like AVAC's, should inactivate and cease the spread of coronavirus. If you're interested in using your voice with us, please consider joining our petition.

To all of our AVAC® families, and particularly to our community of active and retired service members, Team AVAC® wishes you a healthy and safe Memorial Day weekend.
