Private versus Group Lessons

It is a common belief that children will progress faster if they are registered in a private lesson. Statistically, there is no evidence to support this. In fact, private lessons are not necessary for the majority of the population, unless you have the following considerations:
1. A specific skill that your child is not progressing on which is forcing them to be held back in lessons.
2. Any type of special need or requirement that prohibits your child from participating in a group environment.

We strive to give each child equal amount of attention in a group lesson—as well, a group environment promotes teamwork, offers encouragement and motivation, as well as enjoyable interaction with other children. Consider group lessons first!

St. Alban’s reserves the right to cancel a class due to low registration.

 

Evaluation
Evaluation provides guidance on how swimmers can progress and what class level would provide the best environment for development.  It is unusual for participants to progress through a level on the first try.  Swimmers often spend a few sessions in a level before moving to the next one.   A recommendation to repeat the same level should not be misinterpreted as a lack of improvement as this is seldom the case.  For this reason, parents/guardians are encouraged to respect the recommendation of the aquatic staff.

 

Refund Policy
Participants are permitted to withdraw from a course up to the 2nd class.  A refund for the remaining classes, less a 15% administration fee will be granted.  NO REFUNDS are issued after the 2nd class, nor if a class is missed by the participant.
EXCEPTION – LEADERSHIP CLASSES – 15% admin fee for cancellations up to two weeks before first class. No refund granted after the two weeks prior.

 

Bathing Caps
The use of a bathing cap is strongly encouraged. Bathing caps can be purchased at both locations.

 

Shower Policy
In accordance with Ontario Public Pool Regulation 565/90, all bathers must take a full shower before entering or re-entering pool.
Taking a shower before you swim means less dirt, oil, dead skin cells, sweat, and bacteria enter the pool; eliminates chances of diseases entering the pool; reduce amount of chemicals needed to keep the pool clean.
Please help us keep our pool clean and safe by taking a shower every time you swim.

 

Make Up Classes
Pool time is fully booked and the Club is not able to accommodate individuals who miss classes. Lifesaving courses are designed for 100%% attendance; missing lifesaving classes may jeopardize passing the course. Instructor courses require 100% attendance.

 

Pool Closures
Temporary pool closures may occur at any time. If this happens, we make every effort to telephone all swimmers. We will add an extra week at the end of term, if scheduling permits. Otherwise, a credit will be issued.
