Lesson Tips and Policies

Tips:

Arrival Time: Please be on the deck 5-10 minutes before each class, check in at the snack bar to let us know you are here for class.  Participants should use the restroom shower before class begins.  The participants need to wait on deck, not in the water until the instructor has arrived.  Parents should stay with their child(ren) until class begins.  Parents must remain at the pool during the swim lesson.

Swimming Attire and Protection: it is recommended that participants and their parents apply sunscreen prior to beginning of each lesson.  Allow ample time for absorption prior to getting in the water.  For those with long hair, it is recommend wearing it back or covered by a bathing cap during lessons.  Wearing a protective t-shirt is optional.  Participants should not forget to bring a dry towel for use after the lesson.  If a child is not potty trained they should be wearing a swim diaper.

Parental Support: Be supportive of your children’s efforts in lessons.  Learning to swim can be challenging.  Remember fear is learned.  If you are hesitant or fearful for your child in the water, your child will generally acquire a fearful attitude.  Your child’s progress and enjoyment can be enhanced when you and your child are enthusiastic about swimming.  It is normal for children to repeat a particular level multiple times-talk to the instructor about when your child is ready to advance to the next level.

First Day of Class: The first day of class is used to evaluate the participants skill level and comfort.  Participants may be reassigned to another class if necessary.  Please note that class levels may be combined when numbers are small.

Before & After Class: Parents are encouraged to come and talk with the instructor before or after class.  If you have any concerns that the instructor cannot address, please speak to Stewart.

Policies:

Absence Policy: Classes are not made up when a student misses a class, however if the pool cancels a class, check with the instructor for details.

Inclement Weather Policy: Lessons are conducted regardless of weather, except in the cases of pool closure due to thunderstorms.  In the event of a thunderstorm or other pool closure, check with the instructor for details.

Medical: If your child has a medical condition, such as, but not limited to, allergies, seizures, or epilepsy please make sure it is noted on your registration form and the instructor is aware of the situation.  In an emergency, knowledge of a medical condition will aid the staff and emergency personnel in providing care.

We at Lake Park look forward to working with you and your children to provide a Safe & Fun place to learn how to swim. Thank you.
