Toys for Tots

Toys for Tots

I want to remind you of our decades long support of the Marine sponsored Toys for Tots program.  This year more than any other there is a need to provide a little cheer to our youngest Whatcom County residents.  Please bring a new unwrapped toy to drop off at Cordata.  With Covid restrictions the time frame is much shorter this year, all toys need to be delivered to us by December 15th.  BAC members have been so supportive and generous in the past, let’s not let down the Marines this year!

FUTURE SESSIONS: January 5th-28th & February 2nd-25th

We are offering BELUGA group classes! No parent needed in the water! However, the Saturday morning parent/child class is still available if there is interest.

Limit of 4 kids in a class. Siblings can be kept together upon request as long as they’re similarly-abled. Classes are 30 minutes.

Classes will be Tuesdays and Thursdays starting at 3:00 pm. Times will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis, but may be subject to change slightly due to pool spacing and staff availability. If there is only one child in a class, we may ask to adjust times OR charge an additional $15.

Swim Team will run from 5:30-6:30 pm, and will be limited to 5 swimmers. If there is enough interest, we may add another lane to allow for more participants.

We will offer an Angelfish class on Saturday mornings, and a parent-led Beluga class, depending on the demand. In these classes, parents will be in the water with their child and an instructor will be on the side teaching the class. These classes will also be limited.

Private lessons during other times are available, depending on our instructors’ availability. The cost of private lessons outside of our scheduled swim lessons hours are $30 per 30-minute lesson.
You can call the front desk at 360-676-1800 to sign-up. Payment is due upon registration. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me: aquatics@bellinghamathleticclub.com.

COVID precautions/protocols
Please wear a mask when you are in the building. Masks are not required in the pool.

Restrooms will be available for bathroom use and hand washing only. The hot tub will be closed.

We ask you to limit to one adult bringing the swimmers. We understand that siblings may need to come, but we urge you to try to limit the number of people coming when possible.

Teachers will wear face shields. While chlorine is known to kill COVID and other viruses, we feel this will add an extra layer of protection for both our instructors and your swimmers.

We will be checking the temperatures of anybody who enters the building and ask you to sign in at each lesson.

We also have an updated waiver. We will have hard copies available on the first day of lessons, but can email a copy to you upon request.

If you are unable to attend a given day, please email or call so we can adjust staffing accordingly.

Most important: nobody should come to the pool sick or with symptoms! Do not come if you or anyone with you can answer yes to any of these questions.
o Do you have a fever or have you felt hot or feverish recently (14 – 21 days)?
o Are you having shortness of breath or other difficulties breathing?
o Do you have a cough?
o Have you experienced a recent loss of taste or smell?
o Are you experiencing any other flu-like symptoms, such as gastrointestinal upset, headache and /or fatigue?
o Have you been in contact with any confirmed COVID-19 positive patients?

Covid-19 Restrictions

We are very sorry to report that the restrictions have been extended on our clubs due to rising COVID cases. These will remain in effect until the Governor lifts restrictions, hopefully in February. The Downtown Club will be closed starting Tuesday, November 17. The Cordata Club will be operating on a very restricted basis with exercise by appointment only. Email us at memberservices@bellinghamathleticclub.com or call at (360) 676-1800.

Covid-19 Procedures Reminder

We require each member to wear masks coming into the clubs, but they are not required during vigorous exercise as per the Governor’s Guidelines.  The following procedures are in place:

1.  Members disinfect their hands at the Front Desk upon entry social distance upon entry;
2.  Members have their temperature checked;
3.  Members record their temperature and acknowledge the absence of any COVID 19 symptoms;
4.  Members pick up spray bottle and rag to disinfect anything they touch before and after use;
5.  Members pick up placards to place on either side of themselves while exercising to maintain social distance;
6.  Members return bottles, rags, and placards to the Front Desk for disinfecting before next use; and
7.  Members check out with the Front Desk so we know who is in the club at all times.

The Downtown Club has a mask required during all times M-F 10-12pm.  This has been working really well for us if you have any further questions feel free to ask.

Updated Hours

Dear valued BAC members, 

Thanks so much for hanging in there with us as we battle to make it through this COVID craziness.  We are trying to make good decisions to allow more and more of you to come back into the club.  We have added more in-person Group Fitness classes and we are going to expand Cordata Club hours Monday through Friday from 7pm to 8pm beginning next Monday October 19th.  We have had a number of members unable to fit exercise in after work, so hopefully this will help.  We are awaiting the Governor’s decision to move from Phase 2 to Phase 3 and 4.  As I see more and more of you in the club as of late, it gives me hope that we will be able to weather this storm and look back and say ”Whew!  We made it through!”

I want to thank all of you using the club for your conscientious following of all our COVID 19 guidelines, you have allowed us to stay open and not let  one case of COVID into our club.  Everyone–remember to keep exercising, eat well and get adequate sleep, these all help keep your immune system strong and able to combat anything that comes your way.

 Respectfully, Cathy
