The pool heater at Fredericksburg Academy broke just after Christmas. While it has since been repaired, the pool has not yet reheated to a suitable temperature for swimming lessons. Because of this, we are cancelling Learn to Swim for today, Sunday, January 10th. Please read on for additional details for Swim & Stay Fit and the competitive team:

Sunday Swim & Stay Fit:

We will be conducting Swim & Stay Fit, however; we will leave attendance decisions for today up to swimmer/parent discretion. We expect the pool to reach 80°. Comfortable pool temperature for competitive swimming is between 78° to 82°, and for lessons and leisurely swimming, between 83° and 86°. For those with less bodyfat, 80° may be too cold.

Swim Team:

We will hold practice as scheduled. Please remember to use the Sign-up genius that was sent to all team members. If you have signed up but plan not to attend due to the pool temperature, please be sure to cancel your sign-up so we have an accurate count.


Learn To Swim

Classes will last 45 minutes instead of the normal 30. Our new schedule for the rest of Session 3 will be:

  • Step One & Step Two: 4:00-4:45pm
  • Step Three & Step Four: 5:00-5:45pm

Swim & Stay Fit:

Make-up the missed Sunday(s) at any weekday Swim & Stay Fit time:

  • Monday or Wednesday: 7-8pm
  • Tuesday or Thursday: 5-6am, 5:30-6:30am, or 7-8pm

If you are unable to make-up the missed Sunday(s) during the week, please let us know and we will issue a credit for an upcoming session or provide a partial refund.

Thank you for your patience! We are just as anxious as you to get back in the water.
