MEET THE TEAM

Take a leadership course with the City of Waterloo and let dedicated trainers like Janine inspire you.

MEET TEAM #ACTIVEWATERLOO Get to know our instructors – their energy, friendly smiles and quality instruction are the reasons people love our classes.

What could a visitor to my class expect to see? They would see many different teaching approaches, interesting activities and hopefully candidates who are enjoying the course while they learn.

JANINE POLSKI SWIM LEADERSHIP I have worked in my field for 38 years. I have always loved aquatics – I began teaching swimming at my local pool when I was 12. I am better in water than on land! I have taught almost everything from day camps to diving, swimming to gymnastics. From the swim leadership courses I teach, I want participants to take these teaching and leadership skills and use them in all areas of life. The leadership qualifications they earn as young people will continue to serve them in whatever occupation they choose.

8

My philsophy on life is to be kind and compassionate. Everyone has a story and deserves respect. Also, remember to make time for yourself – my biggest challenge is to schedule my own active time. Be accountable to a friend or a group and have them encourage and challenge you. When I’m not at the pool I enjoy hiking, camping, BBQ’s with family and friends, and spending time with my husband and children.

SWIM LESSONS

Let’s get started! The most important step is to make sure your child is placed in the right swim level. Staff reserves the right to ask a child be moved to a different level if the class is too challenging, so it’s best to get it right.

SWIM

GENERAL INFORMATION

If you’re uncertain what level your child should be in, and/or the child has been out of lessons for more than a year, call the Swimplex at 519-886-1177 to arrange a free swim level evaluation. Or follow the recommendations from the child’s last progress report card, and review the detailed standards of performance for each level (online at waterloo.ca/swim/swimlevels). Requests for specific instructors are considered, but we are unable to guarantee that all requests can be granted. Registrations are accepted up to the start of the fifth lesson.

Making the most of your swim experience Leave your valuables at home and bring a lock to secure your belongings. We are not responsible for lost or stolen items. Shower with soap and water before your swim lesson. Footwear is not permitted on the pool deck. Be prepared to go barefoot, or purchase reusable shoe covers at the customer service desk for 75¢. Children who are not fully toilet trained must wear watertight elastic pants or specially designed

disposable swimming diapers, available at the customer service desk for $2.00. Do not send a child to lessons if they are not feeling well. Pool fouling affects all lessons. If a pool fouling happens, lessons are conducted on the pool deck instead of in the water. Refunds/credits are not given for pool foulings. If your child requires one-on-one support in our group lessons, please call the inclusion coordinator up to 3 weeks in advance, at 519-741-2200 ext. 7228. Volunteers are subject to availability.

What to expect Swimmers should go to the pool deck at the lesson start time and not earlier. Parents can escort their child on the first day to meet the instructor. Afterwards, spectators can watch swimmers from the second floor observation gallery.

Photography or videotaping is only permitted on the last day of lessons, subject to advance staff approval. The use of cell phones and PDAs is strictly prohibited in City of Waterloo recreation facility change rooms, washrooms, pool decks and gallery.

One parent is asked to meet the instructor on deck during the last 10 minutes of the sixth lesson to receive a verbal progress report.

In the event of bad weather, listen to local radio stations in case the program has been cancelled unexpectedly. We are unable to make up lessons cancelled due to emergency closures, but will credit the value of the missed class.

A written progress report is provided at the last lesson and will identify the next recommended swim level. Badges may be purchased at the customer service desk for all Waterloo Splash and Preschool levels.

For semiprivate lessons, registration is only available in person. For semi-private lessons, you must find the other participant and register at the same time. Semi-private lessons are best suited for participants who are in the same level or one level apart. Note that the cost of semi-private lessons is based per registrant.

Missed lessons will not be refunded or rescheduled without a doctor's note within 7 days of the scheduled lesson.

HELP REDUCE POOL CLOSURES A pool fouling will cause a closure of our pools anywhere from 1-24 hours. Here are some healthy habits you can take to stop the spread of germs and reduce the number of closures in our pools: •

Take your kids on bathroom breaks or check diapers often. Waiting to hear “I have to go” may be too late.

The use of a swim diaper is mandatory to enter the pool if a child is not yet fully toilet trained.

Do not swim if you are feeling sick or have been sick in the past 24 hours. This is especially important for children in diapers.

Wash your body thoroughly with soap and water before swimming.

Thank you for your assistance in keeping our pool clean for all to enjoy. 40
