Focus on safety, fun & fitness
Welcome to AquaSafe Swim Programs.
We provide swim lessons at Sandwich High School in Sandwich MA.
We provide coaching for children and adults of all ages and abilities.
You can start with our baby swim lessons. Join us in the pool.
Our year-round program is committed to providing you and your family with an environment that will instill a lifelong love of swimming. We teach more than just swimming at AquaSafe. Our swimmers also learn values that will serve them in life. Our mission is for our swimmers to learn the values of community service, fortitude and integrity while having fun and being feeling safe in their sport. Our program begins with baby classes that will introduce your child to water safety skills as young as 6 months old. We are the home of the Cape Cod Firefish. Our USA competitive swim team puts the focus on proper technique and fitness.
Our coaches help to instill the values we find important at AquaSafe: community service, fortitude, integrity, FUN. We also offer an Adult Swim Workout for parents who want to gain endurance and work on technique. We offer private swim lessons for children and adults that have special needs or extreme fears. As a triathlete, I offer clinics and kid triathlons throughout the year to share my passion with my swimmers. Our enthusiasm for what we do is infectious...please join us and swim for your life!

COVID IMPACT ON SCHEDULE:
Our schedule has been impacted by COVID.
Right now we are able to offer swim team. We are also able to offer lessons to our advanced swim levels (silver or gold squad level). The swimmers we are able to accept into lessons need to be able to:
Swim 25 yards of front crawl consistently and independently.
Swim 25 yards of backstroke consistently and independently.
Tread water for one minute.
Dive into deep water.
We are not able to offer lessons for beginner swimmers and toddlers at this point.
We are not able to offer early morning adult swim yet either.
Due to the extra time and space needed for COVID protocol, we are fitting less swimmers in and it is taking more time. The swimmers we are able to allow into the program need to be able to come in without parents and stay socially distant in the pool and on the deck. We do not have instructors in the water at this time. We are teaching from the pool deck while swimmers remain physically distanced in the pool.
We are not able to offer classes on the weekends yet since the custodial staff needs the time to clean and regroup for the students at Sandwich High School.
Please understand the Town of Sandwich and I are working together to get everything back as soon as we are able to do it safely.
I REALLY want to get all of our programs up and running but I have to comply with the state, the town and the school’s guidelines.
Please check in with our website and our facebook page for updates.
Thanks for your patience & support!

Pool Closure Policy:
In the event of severe weather or pool closure/cancellation due to unforeseen circumstances, every effort will be made to reschedule the class. If the schedule or instructor coverage does not allow for a makeup class, the class will be made up with a family swim time. Refunds are not given. Prolonged closure will be dealt with on an individual basis. Please check here regularly for cancellations or pool closures.
Family Swim Time: Come and swim with your entire family. Let them show you all their tricks.Play is the work of the child!
NOTE: If your child is tiny tot, tadpole, turtle, superfish he/she MUST have an adult in the water with them fro family Swim Time. They will not be allowed to swim during Family Swim Time without an adult in the water.
Missed Class Policy
If your child misses a class due to illness or other activities--we do not offer make up classes or refunds. Our classes are built with safety in mind. We cannot allow a swimmer who is not registered for a class to show up and participate in a different swim class. It is not safe. If your child misses three consecutive classes due to a medical issue, we will credit you if you have a doctor's note. Thanks for understanding safety is our priority.
