    Private Swim Lessons

    Private swim lessons will be offered starting June 14th 2021. Lessons will take place in the afternoon Monday - Friday. All lessons will be instructed from the pool deck. Children must be able to swim 1/2 a length of the pool or an adult from the same house hold must accompany them in the water. For more information please contact aquatics@mttamrc.com.

    Exercise a Must

    Don’t forget to exercise. There is swimming now available to members. Please book a lane online through my club lives. Reservations are due the prior Tuesday and are posted that Wednesday.

    Remember

    Our pools do not have a life guard. Please accompany your children when they are swimming, even if you think they are good swimmers. Children need supervision. This means that if you have your children in the pool, you must be either with them or watching them, not swimming laps on your own.

        Mt. TamSwim Rules

        Water + Kids = Fun + Responsibility
        When is an unsupervised child safe in the water?

        The only answer is, no matter how experienced a swimmer, NEVER!
        We often see parents and babysitters, sitting by the pool chatting with friends, reading a book, or maybe even dozing, while their young children are playing in the pool unsupervised. Many days, we find children in the hot tub or indoor pool and soon find out the parent is in the Cafe or by the outdoor pool or even in the gym working out.Maybe, when our children learn to swim, we become lackadaisical that nothing will happen. Unfortunately things do happen. A child lets go of a noodle or kick board, hits their head when trying to surf a kick board, or runs and falls…
        No one can do the job of watching your child in the water, not even the lifeguard.  It is your job as a parent to keep your children safe. Take time at the beginning of the season to review water rules for the ocean, rivers and pools. And watch…Turn your head for an instant and another child holds your child underwater as if they are playing in the living room. Or go in to grab a towel and your child is jumping in on someone else, injuring both the jumper and the person in the water. While you chat with friends or read a good book basking in the sun, do you have a false sense of security? We’ve all heard the statistics. Drowning is the 2nd leading cause of death for children under the age of five in the United States.

        Always let the person already in the lane know that you wish to share the lane.

        Lane 1 is narrow and can only be used by a single swimmer.

        Swim Fins are permitted as long as you are the sole swimmer in the lane, if you enter a lane that is being used by someone wearing fins, you do so at your own risk...or wait for them to finish their program.

        Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by parents at all times.

        Lane 5 (nearest to the jacuzzi) is for children to play in and for swim lessons only.

        Be sure that your children do not wander into the lap lanes or hang on to the lane lines.

        Kickboards are reserved for lap swimmers...they are not for recreational play.

        Children under the age of 3 are not allowed in the jacuzzi.

        No running or ball playing allowed. Please shower before entering the pool or jacuzzi.
