DACA SWIM SCHOOL
November 16, 2020
As of today, Santa Clara County has been moved back to the "Purple" tier designation. Unfortunately, this designation prohibits most indoor gatherings, including indoor pool use.
As always, DACA will strictly abide by all County safety procedures and guidelines. We will be temporarily closing the DACA Swim School on Tuesday, November 17th, 2020. DACA is able to continue to offer outdoor PreCompetitive, Purple, Orange and Gold level lessons at Saratoga High School.
We are sorry for the disruption and inconvenience this will cause to our families. We will be contacting you as soon as conditions change.
Please enjoy a SAFE and HAPPY Thanksgiving.

DACA will be expanding its lessons to include all levels (Rainbow-Gold) beginning, Saturday October 31st! While offering additional levels, we will still be operating in a limited capacity with a maximum of 12 individuals total in both pools at any time.
For the safety and profession of our swimmers, all Rainbow-White ribbon level classes will be taught as private classes (1 swimmer with 1 instructor) with the instructor in the water. All instructors will wear a mask, face shield, and utilize flotation devices and other pool equipment to instruct and minimize hands on instructions. All which will be sanitized after the completion of the class and before the next class. Classes will be 20 minutes in length.
DACA will also offer semi-private (2 swimmers with 1 instructor) classes for families or swimmers who are already in a learning or play group together. Swimmers must be of similar skill level. If interested in a semi-private class please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (408) 446-5600.
We will continue offering Purple, Orange, Gold Starfish lesson levels and Pre-Competitive as previously announced.
Registration is now available!

DACA Swim School and Pre-Competitive classes will resume indoors
Sunday, October 25. (Purple/Orange/Gold and Pre-Competitive levels only)
DACA Swim School will begin offering classes on a monthly basis and enrollment will be ongoing. Monthly billing will occur on the first of each month. Class transfers and new enrollments will only be allowed at the beginning of each month to maintain stable classes per county guidelines.
County safety procedures will require DACA’s swim programs to change in terms of class size, class schedules, parent viewing, and locker room access during this new phase of reopening.
Classes will be 30 minutes long with a maximum of six students in a class. One swimming lane will accommodate two swimmers on opposite ends of the lane. All students will be coached from the pool deck; similar to the pre-competitive program. Swimmers are required to successfully swim one continuous lap of freestyle and backstroke to be eligible to register.
Registration will be available online. All families interested in resuming classes will need to re-register as our schedule has changed to accommodate social distancing and safety protocols.
Registration will open October 15th
Classes start October 25th
We will continue to offer both Swim School and Pre-Competitive programs outdoors at Saratoga High School
