All staff will have completed the COVID safe online course, have installed the COVIDapp & agree to abide by the following guidelines set out below the same as we expect all families & swimmers to.
Thank you so much for your patience & understanding.

We wish the best of health for everyone so lets do our best to keep each other safe.
What are we doing to follow guidelines?
- Our water chemistry is tested every 4 hours.

- Our Centre is cleaned and disinfected at the end of every shift.
- High touch areas will be cleaned regularly through the sessions.

If you need to be away due to symptoms that MAY/or ARE related to COVID-19 we still need you to apply our Absentee Procedure.
Makeup lessons may be available based on the following conditions;
- You must have notified us at least 1 HOUR BEFORE your child’s lesson.
- Term fees must be paid.
- Maximum 3 per term.
- Makeup lessons must be completed during the term or on the following school holidays (not T4).
- Makeup lessons do not carry over to the next term.
- Makeup lessons can not be exchanged for cash refunds or credits towards fees.
- We can not guarantee to provide makeup classes if there are no places available. We rely on families advising us of any absence as soon as they can to be able to offer places.
- As an easier option for parents we also may organise your child’s class as a semi private (half capacity class) as a makeup lesson. This saves you coming back another time or staying longer and has more benefit as they receive more teaching time.
IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO FOLLOW UP FOR MAKEUP LESSONS please see reception when you are in next time or call/email when your child is well
To assist with receiving makeups please – Request A Makeup.
Management reserves the right to alter any of the above points at it’s discretion and on an individual case by case situation.
We DO NOT operate on any Public Holidays
