Click here to renew your membership.
Wednesday & Sunday classes will be assessed on how far they can swim; Puffin to 1Mile over the last 2 weeks before February half term, Saturday classes will be assessed on stages 1 to 6; When distance assessments are taking place, please try and not talk to the teachers as they are counting etc, results will be given to the children at the end of their swim or you can email for results.
Please can parents and carers not walk around the poolside to and from the changing rooms with their children unless they have a medical condition or they are still new in stage 1. Children must not eat for at least 1 hour before their swimming lesson, we have had a couple of incidents where children have been sick in the pool.
Please only park in the main playground, do not go past the tree stump, as this is access for Emergency vehicles.
Please can children be on time and ready for lessons, this includes swim hats on or hair tied up, visit to the toilet, sitting on mats a couple of minutes before the lesson begins. Please can children not come onto the poolside too early, as they start disturbing the classes in progress. Do not encourage your children to sit up in the gallery area especially after Swimming as the stairs will get wet and slippery.
Autumn Term –ASA Core Journey Progress Card:
ASA core progress card, to help each of our swimmers record their progress through stages 1-7 including some additional awards, to keep the children motivated. They will benefit from this card by rewards and recognition to stay in the programme and through the swimmers journey with Splish splash, this is an excellent resource to support them. Please hand them in at the end of term for the books to be updated. Collect from folder near table/renewal forms.
Cleanliness of Changing Rooms:
Please be thoughtful of others by not taking prams and scooters through the changing rooms and the whole family and friends as the floor is wet and can get quite messy with all the outdoor shoes etc. Please wait outside of the changing area where possible, as there is no cleaner present. No adults or children over 7 are to be in opposite sex changing rooms.
*Remind your children before they go onto the pool side to please WALK!
Swimming Hats & Goggles:
Can Girls & Boys with long hair wear swimming hats who swim in stage 3,4,5 & 6 as they will be swimming front crawl with their face in the water breathing to the side and will get a mouth full of hair or they will not be able to see with hair over their eyes! We sell hats £3.00.
Goggles from £8.00 to £12.00. Awards Folders which hold certificates & badges £10.00.
Have a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2017!
