Staying Safe in the Time of Covid19
Covid19 is causing us to redesign our teaching format to keep all students and instructors 100% safe, as we understand safety to mean (CDC guidelines). CDC has said pools and swimming are safe if the guidelines are followed. This means we strictly adhere to social distancing of at least 6 feet between students and instructors as well as providing buffer space in the pool for students to be safe. We expect students will want to adhere to these guidelines.
Whereas typically our instructors and spotters touch students or are right next to them as part of learning, this has been replaced by slowing down students’ risk-taking so that each student now receives all of his/her safety from him/herself. This has always been the main thrust of Miracle Swimming. Now, it will be learned sooner because there’s no alternative! This is one of the silver linings of Covid19.
