Swim Lesson Information

Dear Parent/ Guardian

Thank you for enrolling your child into our swimming lessons. The following important notes will assist you and your child during their swimming lessons.

ASSESSMENTS

These take place during Week 7, week commencing Tuesday 25th February.  At the end of the swim term, your child will receive an assessment sheet for the level they have completed. This assessment sheet will state whether your child will repeat the same level or proceed to the next level. Children must be 5 years to enrol in our swim programme.

PRIORITY BOOKINGPlease bring your child’s swim assessment sheet to reception on rebooking

 To confirm your place, all bookings MUST BE PAID IN FULL on re-booking day.

In order to guarantee your child’s place on a specific day and time in their appropriate level, we offer priority rebooking during week 8, week commencing Tuesday 25th February to parents with children enrolled in the current term. Once you leave the premises on re-booking day (without re-booking your child in) his/her place automatically becomes available to the public.

Please note times/days may change after booking to facilitate the new children’s swim programme. For rebooking alternative days and times, this can only be done when all lessons are completed. Rebooking of alternative days and times will take place from 3pm on Saturday 29th February.

NEW! This will be on a first come first serve basis.

On Monday 2nd March the remaining spaces will be open to the public:

6:30am: Walk in only bookings at Reception ONLY.  
9:00am: Walk in and phone in bookings at Reception ONLY. Please note there will be no phone bookings taken before 9AM
NB: Due to the new format of lessons we may not always be able to guarantee the same time slot every term! We will do our best to accommodate this as much as possible. Where classes are less than 5 people – the class may NOT go ahead. Therefore you may be asked to change your swim time to an alternative time/day.

 UNABLE TO ATTEND A LESSON

Should you be unable to attend a lesson due to sickness please ring the APEX on 051 445522 so we can let our instructor know of your child’s absence.  For any other reason please be aware that due to class capacities and the structure of classes we are unable to facilitate any change of class time and days.
