Ocean First Swim School will remain closed until April 30th, 2020.  The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has extended gymnasium and pool closures until April 30th and we are adhering to their emergency orders related to COVID-19.  We will continue to send email updates and we will keep our website updated here with most current information.

We value your commitment to Ocean First, which is why we are taking proactive measures to ensure the health of our community. We will not be charging tuition for any students enrolled in classes during our closure.

Thank you all for your dedication to Ocean First and reaching out about how you can help. We are currently putting together virtual course on the following topics:

  • New marine science content: These videos will provide you with an interactive virtual take on our marine science camps. Together you and your kids will have access to Ms. Alex as she takes you on adventures in the underwater world through experiments, activities, and crafts. 
  • Dry-land workouts and stretches for the upper level class students to be able to do from home.
  • Family yoga sessions that the whole group can participate in. Get ready for a fun, yet challenging yoga class with certified yoga instructor, Ms. Kathryn. 

We are also working hard to get clips of tips and tricks to keep practicing your dry swim lessons from home with Mr. James and the crew. 

We want to have content for every swimmer out there. Please continue to let us know what you would like to see by emailing swim@oceanfirst.blue if you are interested in any of the above, or if you have any feedback about what you’d like to see from us.

As many of you know, the CDC (Center for Disease Control) is responding to a global outbreak of novel coronavirus, or COVID-19. We want to assure you that Ocean First is committed to ensuring the health and safety of our community. With the outbreak of coronavirus, we are asking for your help to take additional measures to provide a safe and healthy space for all of our customers and staff. If you or your child isn't feeling well, please give us a call to reschedule. We are happy to make accommodations for you so that you and/or your child can get well. 

Please continue reading to learn more about our ongoing and temporary policies.

Here's a reminder of our make-up policy: 

  • We require a 24-hour notice in advance of your absence in order to be eligible for a make-up class.
  • Make-ups are based on availability and are not guaranteed.
  • We cannot guarantee the same teacher for your make-up class.
  • We cannot schedule your make-up class further than seven days in advance.
  • If you know you are going to be absent, you can schedule a make-up class before your absence date.
  • If you miss a scheduled make-up, it cannot be rescheduled.

Until further notice, we are offering the following changes to our make-up policy: 

  • Make-ups can be extended following an illness-related absence as long as the family communicates the absence in advance.
  • Past make-ups are valid if your family is not currently enrolled in lessons for up to one month following the communicated drop reason (case by case basis).
  • Illness-related absences notified within the 24-hour notice are eligible for makeups. 

Until further notice, we are altering our drop policy to accommodate our families: 

  • All illness-related drop requests must be communicated to the swim administrator prior to your next swim lesson. You will be given the option of a credit or extended make-ups for your remaining lessons. 
  • Any non-illness-related drops continue on as usual and are to be communicated before the 1st of the month. 
  • Due to waitlist demand, we cannot hold or guarantee that same class after the student is dropped. We can however, add you back to any and all waitlists. 

Thank you for your continued support in our swim school! We care about the health and well-being of all of our families and swim instructors within the Ocean First community. Please reach out with any questions or concerns you have and together we can stay informed.
