Coronavirus (COVID-19) Precautions & Status

Revised COVID-19 Billing Policy & Lesson options

2.) Family Credit on Account - Upon Families chosen return date for lessons ($15 restart fee applies after 30 days) (May lose your normal scheduled lesson spot)

Ohana Aquatics will notify everyone when we open again for lessons. We base this decision on shelter restrictions being lifted on our state and county.

We continually follow local news, health department updates, Alameda Public Health Department and CDC to keep up to date and inform you of any changes that may need to further be made for our pool and swim lessons.


We are all in this together and will do the best we can to protect and help our swim community get through this trying time.


Whole hearted thank you for your support for our teachers and swim school.


We will continue to do what we can to help you create the peace of mind needed for all.


Further updates will be made to this website, our email responder and voice mail of any new changes.

When we can reopen, we will send you an email as well.

Again, we thank you for pulling together during this challenging time.
