Inside the Bubble with Katie's Kickers

2020 has forced local businesses to come up with creative ways to stay open and Katie's Kickers is no exception. Katie's Kickers typically rented space during the winter inside a local recreation center, but this year with the closing of indoor facilities, they had to get creative. $8,000 later a giant bubble was shipped through customs into Norfolk to cover the pool of a private residence. Lessons have been able to continue in small group settings, limiting the amount of people. 

Now, in addition to lessons, private rentals are now available! For only $50 an hour, you can have a private rental for up to 20 people under the supervision of a lifeguard. There is a heated changing tent, and outdoor seating available too.! At that price, grab your family for an hour or two to get some energy out, spend a morning working out the toddlers so that they nap, or reward your older kids for their hard work with virtual learning by moving their muscles. 

Everyone knows I'm into giving experiences as gifts, so this was one of ours. I know that there are lots of "Covid bubble" play groups, learning pods, and home school groups. This would be the perfect way to mix up your regular schedule and do something that the kids haven't been able to do in months. 

It's an added bonus that the pool is chlorine based, because the CDC now states that chlorine inactivates Covid, meaning that it prevents the virus from spreading. Great for Covid, not for my Crayola red hair. I did tell the boys not to get my head wet, but literally as soon as we stepped into the bubble their excitement took over! Totally worth it. Bookings begin in January. Email for more details on both swim lessons and private pool bookings.
