POLICIES AND FAQ'S
We require reusable swim diapers made of cloth or vinyl because disposable swim diapers (like “Little Swimmers”) clog our filters.
- Swim diapers catch bowel movements and not urine, so enter the pool promptly after getting ready.
- Please rinse soiled reusable diapers in the toilet, not the sink or shower.
- Hang dry only – your dryer will warp a reusable swim diaper (or swim suit).
- We sell reusable swim diapers in our retail area.
We offer free make-up classes for missed classes. Here’s what you need to know in order to benefit from this program;
- Give us a call or let the front desk know before you are going to miss
- We will note it in your account and open your spot for another child to get a make-up that day
- Once you’ve let us know, you have 30 days to book your make-up class
- To book a make-up, call 24 hours or less in advance and we will try to find you a spot
- Make-up classes are not available for swim team levels (STUSA and up)
It’s never too late to start swim lessons, but here are a few things to know:
- We offer free swim classes from 3 – 6 months old
- Early water stimulation benefits your child’s nervous system
- Children are born with an innate love of the water and the earlier they swim, the less likely “outside factors” will affect their attitude about water
- Children who come in for their first lesson after 6 years old still have a great place to start; our Swimmer and Team Prep levels give the older child exactly what she/he needs at a faster pace
- Reusable swim diaper for those not potty trained
- Swim suit
- Shampoo/Conditioner – we have showers on site
- Combination lock, if desired
- Goggles – for stroke development levels only
- Cap – for stroke development levels only
We strongly encourage year-round swimming. Here’s a few reasons why:
- Drowning doesn’t just happen in summer.
- Your child grows all of the time and skills will change with different body proportions.
- Practicing continuously ensures that your child remembers safety skills.
- We focus on whole-body activity that improves health, strength, and coordination.
- Studies show that swimming accelerates brain development, aiding in school performance.
- Greater self-control and self-respect due to consistent structured activities, goals setting, and listening skill development.
- Socialization and team building; many of our students create lasting friendships.
