[ARCHIVED] Update: Swim Program 2020

With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the decision has been made to cancel all Swim Lessons this summer, including the Lifeguard Training Course.

Please know that this was not an easy decision to make, and it was made with input from the American Red Cross, other Cape towns’ Rec./Beach Departments, the Barnstable County Reopening Task Force, the Falmouth Health Dept., and the Falmouth Town Manager’s office. Many practical challenges including required Personal Protective Equipment, no instructor/student contact, reduced parking, and capped enrollment to adhere to small group size guidelines were just some of the reasons for the cancellation. This decision is ultimately for the safety of the families and children involved in our Swim Program, as well as that of our staff.

Thank you for your understanding of this change as we work to provide a safe environment for all beach goers during these difficult times.
