Memo to participants

Please read this memo carefully to learn about the policies in place.

Locker-room access

  • Access to the locker rooms is permitted 20 minutes before and after classes only.
  • Only one parent can accompany a child.
  • Any parent who wishes to swim during their child’s lesson must pay the entry fee.
  • All other parents must sit in the stands or wait in the mezzanine once class has started.

Shoes and boots

  • For hygienic and cleanliness reasons, any boots or shoes worn outdoors are not permitted in wet changing rooms or the area around the pool. Parents are encouraged to set a good example by removing their boots and shoes or wearing sandals.

Before class

  • If you have a contagious disease, open wound or diarrhea, please do not come to class.
  • Take a shower before entering the water and ensure your child has gone to the bathroom.
  • Remember to walk calmly around the pool.
  • Listen to the monitor’s instructions before entering the water.

During class

  • Be sure to wear a suit designed for swimming and avoid Bermuda-style swim shorts, as these are long and can be uncomfortable to wear in the water.
  • You’re allowed to wear a rash-guard type swim t-shirt (not cotton) as well as bring your beach towel to the side of the pool to keep warm.
  • ALWAYS let the monitor know if you’re leaving the pool, no matter the reason.
  • To enter the water, be sure to use the safe method taught to you in class.
  • Everyone progresses at their own speed. Be sure not to compare yourself to others.

After class

  • Walk calmly around the pool.
  • Keep an eye out for children wrapped up in their towels, as they can’t protect themselves in the event of a fall.


  • You will not be able to make up a missed class. However, you are welcome to practice during free swim times (a fee applies).
