General Pool Information: Did you know....? Strollers • Due to their size, and the possibility of restricting change room exits, unattended strollers are to be left in the area by the pool office. We apologize for the inconvenience, however we need to ensure all exits are maintained free of obstructions in case an evacuation is required.

Missed Classes • If you miss a scheduled lesson we are unable to make them up.

Feeding your children before swimming: Please refrain from feeding your child a large meal prior to swimming.

Gift Ideas • Looking for gift ideas? Why not purchase swim tickets or passes for Aquatic programs? Inquire by phone (519) 843-2800.

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.

Swimming Lesson information: Cancelled Classes • Classes with low enrolment will be cancelled approximately 1 week before programs start. Register early to avoid disappointment.

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.

Private Rentals • A private pool rental is a great way to celebrate a birthday, or host a special event. Rental times are available Saturday and Sundays between 4:00pm-5:00pm. Call the Supervisor of Aquatic Services (519-843-2800) for more information.

Deck Supervisor • During swimming lessons there is a deck supervisor that oversees all the lessons. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s progress they are available to answer your questions.

Diapers •As a courtesy to all we request and require that all children who are not toilet trained wear specially designed swimming diapers. 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.

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

• Family Lessons We offer an alternative format of swimming lessons on Monday and Friday evenings called “Family Lessons”. 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. Lessons will be 45 minutes in length to provide additional practice time for swimmers.

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.

Swim Lesson Progressions • Did you know your child may repeat a level 3 or 4 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.

It could be that they are setting goals and working to achieve them, and when they do, they feel great about themselves. The personal attention our instructors give them, will keep kids interested and engaged and keeps them having fun.
