Lesson Policies

Lesson Guidelines

  • Your child will receive a USA Swimming Flex Membership for the current year for liability coverage.  The Flex membership fee is included with your $30 yearly registration fee.
  • Please prep your child(ren) to be good listeners. Encourage them to follow directions and do their best. They must be able to wait safely on the wall or island until it is their turn. If necessary, they may be asked to wait their turn on the side to maintain safety for all. We want you to know we strive to keep your child safe, first and foremost.
  • Goggles are recommended that do not enclose the nose or mouth. Speedo Vanquishers are a quality goggle that seem to fit most swimmers. 
  • Long hair must be tied back or in a cap. Not only does this help keep the water cleaner, but allows your child to learn how to breathe properly without struggling through a mouthful of hair.
  • One piece swimsuits are recommended for girls and jammers for boys.
  • Swimmers must remove band-aids and gum is not allowed. Please do not enter the water with open sores or contagious illnesses.
  • Any classes not filled may be subject to combining or cancellation.
  • Any cancellations made by PSC will be given a make-up date.  We will contact you via email, so please be sure your account has been verified to receive important communication.
  • We believe that teaching excellence through swimming, teaches excellence in life. And that it takes thousands of high quality repetitions to make excellence in everything we do.


For Lessons at the Parkland High School Natatorium:

  • Have your swimmer check-in with the on-deck supervisor and wait patiently on the benches until they are called over. 
  • Parents/guardians, please proceed to the bleachers upstairs to watch your swimmer’s lesson. You may not watch from the pool deck.
  • Adults are not allowed into the high school locker room.  Ideally, the swimmers will come in their swimsuit and leave in their swimsuit. There are blue changing tents in the vestibule for your convenience, if they must change.
  • Masks must be worn indoors at all times, unless in the water.

For lessons at Westwood Heights Swim Club:

  • Our WWH Lesson protocol will apply as indicated in the Swim Lesson Covid-19 Policies (see below).
