Spectators Spectators are welcome to watch from the spectator gallery. Viewing lessons from the pool deck is not permitted.

Swim Lesson Progressions Did you know your child may repeat a level multiple times before completing all of the requirements successfully? When registering your children please ensure you register them in the correct level. Swimming skills build from one level to the next. If your child hasn’t completed a level, they will not have the skills they need for the next level.

Strollers Due to their size, and the possibility of restricting change room exits, unattended strollers are to be left outside of the change rooms. Strollers are not to be on the pool deck. We apologize for the inconvenience, however we need to ensure all exits and the pool deck are maintained free of obstructions in case an evacuation is required. Swimming Lesson information: Cancelled Classes Classes with low enrolment will be cancelled approximately 1 week before programs start. Register early to avoid disappointment. Deck Supervisor During swimming lessons there is a deck Supervisor who oversees all the lessons. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s progress they are available to answer your questions. Family Lessons We offer an alternative format of swimming lessons called “Family Lessons”. You can coordinate all your children’s lessons’ to take place at the same time. Lessons are run in the format on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday evenings, as well as Wednesday and Thursday afternoons and Saturday mornings. PLEASE NOTE: In order to coordinate this, instructors will teach multi level classes. Lessons will be 45 minutes in length to provide additional practice time for swimmers. Missed Classes If you miss a scheduled lesson we are unable to make them up. Not sure what level to register in? Please call the Sportsplex (519) 843-2800 to arrange a time for a FREE SKILLS ASSESSMENT by one of our Aquatic Staff. Private Lessons Private lessons run in the same 9 lesson format as all other lessons. If this doesn’t fit your schedule, we do offer “one time” private lessons. When registering online for Semi private lessons you can register 1 child online which will reserve the lesson for you. You need to contact the Sportsplex to register the 2nd child. For more information call the Supervisor of Aquatic
