  • All participants must have an Aquatic Center or Park District Membership to receive Member Pricing.
  • Participants in Clownfish, Puddle Jumpers, Lake Explorer, Ocean Explorer, Tadpole & Minnow must have a parent in the water. This measure is to decrease contact from instructor to participants.
