We want to offer words of appreciation to all of you for your patience and understanding as we navigate through this pandemic together. We hope everyone of you is healthy, well and staying informed through these changing times.
We at Angelfish believe that the health of our community is invaluable, especially our children. In light of current medical data, scientific studies and infection/death rate, we have decided with heavy hearts to keep our swim school closed through the 2020 season. We have been teaching children in our community life saving water skills since 2006 and we will reopen our facility when this virus has been overcome and it will.
In the meantime, we will offer video lessons at a discounted rate of $20/30 minutes. Book this lesson as you would any other via our "Book or Sign In" button on the main page.
The risks of passing this virus asymptomatically, combined with a new and mysterious inflammatory syndrome occurring in some children associated with Covid 19, we strongly feel that science must understand this better before we can re-assume our daily close interactions. Our methods of swim instruction include handling children directly, close contact and face to face communication, leaving no possible way to effectively social distance.
Everything is unprecedented now and things can feel overwhelming, leaving us with more questions than answers and forcing decisions upon us we never anticipated. Those of you who have classes currently booked may accept credits for the 2021 season, or request a refund. We value all of you and as a small business, your patronage is appreciated more than ever. Gift Certificates are still available for future lessons. We remain optimistic and we will be here as we always have, once the threat has passed or if a vaccine is found.
We are here to support our community, please visit www.YourSwimBuddy.com for helpful video tips and tools to help your child learn to swim.
In the interim, we are still here to provide critical support for the safety of your family. We are still installing Pool Safety Fencing in the Tampa Bay area and beyond to help keep your family safer. Also, in conjunction with the videos mentioned above, encourage you to try teaching your children at home using our OSCAR training device. It is only a small investment, and is proven to provide results.
We appreciate, value and miss all of you.
