The information below was created for the Summer 2020. We will follow the same guidelines for 2021 until state and local restrictions are lifted.
The Technique Swim Academy is working closely with the Boston Sports Institute and Charles River Aquatics to ensure that all protocols set forth by the CDC, Massachusetts Department of Early Childhood Education and the Wellesley Board of Health are enforced.
The CDC has stated “there is no evidence that the virus that causes COVID-19 can be spread to people through the water in pools...” Chlorine inactivates the SARS-CoV-2 virus in water and the BSI Pools have an additional layer of protection—UV Filtration Systems—that kill the virus. However, there is an inherent risk of exposure to Covid-19 when in public despite our best efforts to mitigate the spread so please read the expectations below carefully to determine your comfort factor before signing up for our program.
The facility Swimming Safely guidelines below will be strictly enforced for the safety of all swimmers and staff:
