Downtown Club Opens

Good News!  With infection rates still declining and vaccination rates increasing it looks like we will be able to stay in Phase 2 for an extended period of time. That allows us to open up the Downtown Club effective TODAY!  We are so excited to be able to open the doors of the Downtown Club for our member’s workouts.

We will start with modified hours:  Monday through Friday 8:00am-12:00pm and 3:00pm-7pm.  Masks will be mandatory at all times during the morning hours (even when working out).  Masks will be required in all common areas and when not vigorously exercising, during the afternoon session (just like the policy at Cordata). Though we are able to open the exercise floor for member use, it appears from all of our research that we will still have to keep the locker rooms closed until we get further guidance from the Governor.  We will expand hours as the demand arises.

For right now the only In-person Class will be Lesley’s Strong and Stable which will require prior registration. We want to thank all of you members who have supported us throughout this past year, it has been so important to us.  We do foresee a time when we will have both clubs back in full swing in the not too distant future.  We are hoping that more and more of you are able to get the vaccine.   We can’t wait to see you back in the club!

Whatcom County is Moving to Phase 2!!!

Whatcom County will move into Phase 2, Monday February 15, which will mean we can operate BAC at  25% capacity!  Class size for all In-Person Group Exercise will be moved to 8 participants; Water Aerobics classes will allow 12 participants. Racquetball/Handball courts are open and available as well!

The best part is that we will no longer have to reserve spots for general club usage on the exercise floors.  We will continue with the social distancing policy; please respect the masking rule throughout the club, unless strenuously exercising. Spray bottles for cleaning equipment, and placecards to ensure space around you, are still available by the front desk.  Most importantly, please stay home if you are not feeling well.

If we continue to stay in Phase 2 for Whatcom County we will look at re-opening the Downtown Club with limited hours; and with a mandatory mask always policy.  I foresee this happening in March as long as we don’t bounce back out of Phase 2.

Thanks everyone for your continued support as we navigate our way through these crazy times.

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.
