On behalf of the Swim Academy coaching staff we would like to welcome you to the Winter 2020 Lessons!
The Lifesaving Society provides details how groups like ours, the city, UofG and the YMCA can run lessons. You will see from the other groups they will be offering very limited private lessons and possibly some family lessons. Swimmers will have to be swimmer level 5 and up to participate in private lessons and instructors will be on the deck.
For the Marlins, for the immediate, we will only be able to offer programming for our Swim School level Jr Marlins 1, Jr Marlins 2, Marlins 1 and Marlins 2 groups. These groups have a good foundation to accommodate instruction from a coach on the side of the deck. And it is what we will have for now until things get back to normal. Our groups of Lil Marlins, Mini Marlins and Novice still require direct physical correction from our instructors and we are unable to accommodate at this time. For us to do a pool full of privates is not a financially viable option as we rent our pool time from the city, and as a not-for-profit running a deficit already this year, it's just not something we can do.
We will offer programs for Jr Marlins 1, 2, Marlins 1 and 2 which will have multiple coaches on the side instructing. We will be limiting the swimmers per lane and have the swimmers situated in such a way they will be physically distanced. The session will run Sept 27th - Dec 13th for 11 weeks. (Off Thanksgiving October 11th Sunday)
The registration process is simple for both new and returning families.
Keep in mind the Swim Ontario registration fee of $52.55 per swimmer per year, this runs and covers your swimmer (Sept. 1 - August 31 2020) and is a requirement that we collect. This is insurance for your child and is required in order to swim. This is not refundable for the Fall session after registration and payment has been accepted.
NOTE: If classes are full, please sign up for the Wait List.
