coronavirus (COVID-19) Precautions & Status



Pending opening date is Wed. April 8th. 

If your lessons are on a hold and wish to return we will attempt to resume lessons at this time, unless there are news updates changing the situation.


At this time we are using these preventative measures to manage concerns around the coronavirus (COVID-19) and help all of our Ohana community.


We continue to 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 in order to thrive.


Whole hearted thank you for your support during this challenging time. We will continue to do what we can to help you create the peace of mind needed for all.


We will further update this website, our email responder and voice mail of any new changes.

We thank you for pulling together during this challenging time.

Be Well, Be Healthy, Be kind to yourself and others!


Thank you ~ Ohana Management
