Swim Lesson Survival Guide

Some guidelines and recommendations to help you and your child have a positive swim lesson experience. 

SWIM LEVEL EVALUATION   ARRIVING AT YOUR LESSON

Are you wondering which lesson level to register you or your child in? Call the Aquatic Centre at 403-227-2924 to set up a time to have your child’s swim level skills evaluated.

 

Have your child changed and ready three minutes before class start time and then head out to the deck area and wait by the wooden bench. Please note that if a swim lesson is missed by the swimmer, there is no makeup or credits for that class.

LESSON SUPERVISOR    HOT TUB USAGE

Questions or concerns about your child’s lessons should be brought to the lesson supervisor as quickly as possible.

    

Children are not to go into the hot tub prior to their lesson.
