Welcome!

Here you will find information to prepare you for your first day of lessons including our location, deck procedures, safety precautions, and the payment process.

 

Location: 303 Lovers Lane, Bowling Green, KY 42101

We are to the left (behind the WCPS - Central Office) in the 212 Academy building.

 

Here are a few administrative items for you as we prepare for your first class.

1 - Our primary method of communication will be email (should we need to communicate any changes in classes / schedules).

2 - Registration forms must be completed by each parent.  Everyone will need to fill out a new form. The forms can be used for multiple children. The forms are two sided, both sides must be complete.  It is usually best to arrive a little earlier (about 5-10 minutes) prior to your class to ensure your forms are complete and to turn them in.

3 - Payment can be made with checks or cash.  There is no online payment available for lessons.  Please pay on your first day of class so we can be sure to process them and pay the instructors on time.  Do not put payments in the TEAM PAYMENT box.  Our team administrators will collect these checks and not know what they go to.  We (Coaches) need to turn in all lessons payment information together so it is tracked and logged appropriately.

4 – Children on premises (even those not in lessons): If your child arrives early or you have other children who are not in lessons, please help the coaching staff with monitoring your children while they are on deck. As a private organization, we offer a better coaching / participant ratio than many other swim clubs (lessons programs).  With this, we reduce our need for external lifeguards on deck. However, we need your help to monitor any siblings / children on deck (not in our care).  We will watch the ones in the water, you need to help us monitor the behaviors of the ones on the premises.  Please limit jumping on the bleachers, climbing on rails, standing at pool side hovering over other lessons / training groups. Also, please be sure to keep children inside the building and from running in hallways. There will be meetings and professional development classes in the front classrooms. Children should not be in parking lots between cars nor throwing rocks from landscaping areas. Children that are not participating in lessons are not allowed to touch or be in the water under any circumstances.

5 - Thunderstorms / inclement weather: Should we experience a thunderstorm, Warren County School District has a policy that we must clear the pool. If a thunderstorm is detected within 10 miles of our facility, we are forced to evacuate. This is for your safety. Contrary to some belief, indoor pools aren't really 'grounded'.  We will also clear the pool and the pool deck in the event of a power failure.

In the event of thunderstorms, we will have a 30 minute wait policy for each sight (of lightning or sound of thunder).  Sometimes we may adjust the schedules depending on radar projections.  Should we see a large storm cell heading our way - we may cancel / postpone lessons in advance.

Again, our major communication method is using email. If there is inclement weather in the forecast, please be checking your email around the time of lessons to reduce unnecessary driving if we cancel. Other communication may involve signs posted on the doors entering the building / pool.

6 - Parents must remain on the bleachers at all times. Hovering over the children is a distraction not only to the children, but to the instructors as well. Please do not give your child advice during their lessons, you are paying for our instructors to teach them for a reason.

7 - Instructors may request to move swimmers (if you are able / schedule is flexible).  We may see that a class before or after your selected class has more space.  Should this be the case, we may discuss moving your child to a class that will maintain our low swimmer / instructor ratio. Your child may also be moved classes if they're ability level does not match that of the group they are in.
