The Daniel Island Community Association allows 3rd party swim lesson providers to teach at the DICA Pool facilities as they have in past years. Instructors are required to provide the Daniel Island Community Association with a Certificate of Insurance that lists the Daniel Island Community Association as additional insured as well as complete instructor waivers before being able to teach lessons.
Once all requirements have been met by the instructor, they will be added to the “Authorized Instructor List” located in the community tab under Amenity Rentals and Rules. This list simply identifies the instructors who have met the insurance and legal requirements and are eligible to teach. The POA (DICA) will accept and add additional instructors to the list as they come in and are authorized.
Swim lessons are currently taking place at the Pierce Park Pool facility during the Winter Season (through March 24th, 2023). Click HERE for a list of authorized swim instructors available to teach at the Pierce Park Pool. Once the Scott Park Pool facility opens on March 24th, lessons will cease at the Pierce Park Pool and move to Scott Park Pool. At that time, the Scott Park Pool facility will be the only pool where lessons by authorized instructors are permitted.
Please know that the Daniel Island Community Association and its insurance provider are doing everything they can to allow residents to hire their own swim instructors while keeping the association and its residents at low potential risk. However, if the rules and DICA requirements are not met by both the residents and instructors, the privilege will be revoked.
To become an approved instructor, please contact Danielle Stix at Danielle.Stix@dicommunity.org.
