The Aquatic Centre has both disposable and reusable swim diapers available at our administration desk. The Sportsplex stocks swim diapers in infant, child, youth, and adult sizes. Feeding your children before swimming: Children may experience nausea while swimming after eating a large meal. Please give your child ample time to digest their food before swimming. Please do not feed your child a large meal just prior to swimming. Financial Assistance for Swimming Lessons: For families looking for additional support, there is funding available through the Canadian Tire Jump Start Program. This excellent program offers funding for swimming lessons and minor sports activities. For further information or how to apply, contact the Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington at (519) 826-9551. Free Public Swimming NEWDON INDUSTRIES LTD PUBLIC SWIM will provide free admission to the first 40 children and youth entering the 2:00 pm to 3:55 pm public swim on the first Saturday of each month.

Photos / Videos Patrons wishing to use video cameras or other photographic devices, including camera phones and personal digital assistants during registered or supervised Township programs may take photographs only of children / patrons in their care. Every attempt must be made to limit or eliminate other patrons from being filmed in the background. Pool Temperatures We have 3 different pools on our deck. They are Maintained at the following temperatures: Main – 28 Celsius (82 Fahrenheit) Leisure – 33.5 Celsius (92 Fahrenheit) Whirl Pool – 38 Celsius (100 Fahrenheit)

Page 14

Starting in April our main pool is available from 6:00-7:00pm on Saturdays. Please call the Supervisor of Aquatic Services (519-843-2800) for more information. Spectators Spectators are welcome to watch from the spectator gallery. Viewing lessons from the pool deck is not permitted. 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 on deck. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s progress they are available to answer your questions. Family Lessons For our summer swimming sessions (all but Wednesday evenings) we run lessons in our Family Lessons format. Most swimming levels are offered at the same time so you can coordinate all your children’s lessons’ to take place at the same time. PLEASE NOTE: In order to coordinate this, instructors will teach multi level classes. Most lessons are 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 Services, (519) 843-2800. 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. Transfers You can switch classes prior to the start of the third lesson if there is space available.

NEW FOR SUMMER We’ve made some changes for the Summer session. Please look through the aquatic section for more details. Swimming lesson format: We are offering a number of different lesson options this summer. We have lessons once a week every week. We are also offering lessons in a twice a week format on Tuesday and Thursdays in July, and then again in August. We will continue to offer lessons in our popular “daily lesson” format throughout the summer as well. Swim Passes: All of our Swim passes are valid for every drop in swim program (Lane, public, family, adult leisure, special needs, parent & tot) • Annual Family Swim passes cost $365.00 for the year • Family Summer Swim passes are valid for July and August and cost just $100. • Child and Youth Summer Swim passes are valid for July and August and cost just $40. Summer Changes: Our Morning lane swim (9:00-11:45) does not run during the summer.

$ Using games and activities, swimmers learn to swim 2 metres unassisted, demonstrate basic floats by themselves and increase their distance on front and back glide. Assisted front swim and rollover glide are also included, and swimmers learn appropriate water safety skills such as how to jump into chest deep water and how to use a Personal Flotation Device (PFD).

Focus is on deep water skills, building endurance for front and back swims up to 7 metres and a 15m continuous swim. Swimmers will learn the sitting dive and increase their distance on front and back glide with kick. Safety skills include combination skills such jumping into deep water, swimming 5m, surface support for 20 seconds and returning to safety. Swimmers also learn to use throwing assists.
