UPDATE Wednesday, November 18th 2020

Dear Seattle Athletic Club Member,

As you are aware, Governor Inslee recently announced the closure of all indoor fitness facilities through December 14th. However, after conferring with the State and County, they have confirmed that Water Recreation Facilities were not included in this most recent mandate. 

Therefore, we are happy to announce that the Club has been approved to re-open our Pool as of Thursday, November 19th.

As we have throughout the current health crisis, we are going to proceed with an abundance of caution and apply greater safeguards than what the State requires. Our primary mission after all is to protect and enhance the health and well-being of our SAC community.

These guidelines include:

  • One swimmer per lane only (two if from the same household)

    • Each lane reservation will be 45 minutes in duration, with a 15-minute cleaning and transition window in-between appointments.

    • Lanes will be staggered so the "end" that each swimmer starts and finishes is appropriately distanced. Swimmers will be asked to take their "breaks" at the designated "end" or "home" base for that specific lane.

  • Water Aerobics

    • Classes limited to 5 participants and require pre-registration.

  • No Family Swim will be available at this time

  • Reservations are required through the Member Portal, Club App, or at the Front Desk.

  • Pool Equipment

    • Swimmers must come prepared to swim, we are unable to provide access to the lockers at this time.

    • Swimmers must bring their own towels as regular towel service will not be available.

    • Minimal equipment will be accessible (kickboards, pull-buoys, etc).

    • Pre-rinse and post rinse showers ONLY. Soap will not be provided or allowed for use.

    • Swimmers must wear flip-flops to and from the showers and on the pool deck.

    • Masks are required on the pool deck up until the time you are getting into the pool and immediately upon exiting the pool

The Pool hours of operation, beginning Thursday, November 19th will be:

  • Monday-Friday: 6:00am - 8:00pm

  • Saturday/Sunday: 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Even though we're disappointed that we are not currently able to provide access to all our services and amenities at this time, given the new restrictions and growing number of cases within the state, we're committed to providing our members as much support as possible in a safe and effective manner. In particular, we hope that you will take advantage of the wide array of virtual classes and programs available through our Facebook, YouTube, Zoom, and other Social Media outlets. 

Please remember to take the time to prioritize your overall health and wellbeing during this historically challenging time. We urge everyone to continue taking all recommended precautions in your personal lives to safeguard your health and the health of others.

We cannot express how much our entire team appreciates all of the support that we have received over the past few days. Your support will go a long way in ensuring we will be here to serve our community, now, and well into the future.

Please do not hesitate to reach out if there is anything we can do to assist you. 

Stay healthy and be well,

Seattle Athletic Club

 

UPDATE Monday, November 16th 2020

Dear Seattle Athletic Club Community,

Please be advised that earlier this morning Governor Inslee announced that all indoor fitness facilities must close for four (4) weeks as of midnight on Monday, November 16th.

Consequently, we regret to inform you that the Club will be closing after our normal operating hours on Monday, November 16th, through Monday, December 14th. We apologize for the suddenness of the closure and for the resulting inconvenience it may cause you.

As a result, we will automatically be placing all active memberships on hold for the entire month of December. The hold fee (⅓ of your current dues rate) will not only keep your membership in good standing, but it will also go a long way to ensuring we will be here to serve you in the future. Please do not hesitate to contact the Business Office if you have any billing questions or concerns at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

We have received so many heartwarming messages over the past few hours from members requesting information on how they can financially support the Club and its staff. Should you have the desire and means to continue to pay your full membership dues, please let us know you wish to do so. These are extremely challenging times for small businesses such as ours. Your ongoing support will go a long way in ensuring that we can serve you into the future.

Your support will also allow the Club to provide a wide array of virtual classes and programs to assist (and entertain) you through this extremely challenging time. Please stay tuned for email and social media updates over the next few days regarding an updated virtual class and program schedule.

We also have an extensive library of fitness resources available for you on demand through our YouTube pages. The current content includes live-streaming and pre-recorded classes, training forums, online exercise platforms, virtual activities and more!

Most importantly, during this global health crisis, please remember to take the time to prioritize your overall health and wellbeing. We urge everyone to continue taking all recommended precautions in your personal lives to safeguard your health and the health of others.

We cannot express how much our entire team appreciates all the support that our community has provided during these unprecedented times. We will continue to fight to be able to serve our community, now, and into the future. Please do not hesitate to reach out if there is anything we can do to assist you.

Stay healthy and be well,

Seattle Athletic Club
