Swim Lesson Policies (updated 7/22/2021)

  1. Students are to enter the pool area through the respective locker rooms to access the pool deck. Street shoes are NOT permitted on the pool deck. Parents with opposite gender students may bringing their student to the double glass doors at the shallow end of the pool.

  2. Students are to come to the pool ready to swim, in their bathing suit. 

  3. All students must shower before entering the pool as required by the NJ Bathing Code. Do not apply lotions or sunscreens before entering our indoor pool!

  4. There is no food permitted on the pool deck. Water in non-glass containers is allowed.

  5. The parent/adult must remain in the balcony for the duration of your child's swim lesson. If a parent is not present the swimmer will be asked to get out of the water.

  6. Please remain seated during the lesson and DO NOT call out to your child.  This is very distracting to the students & the instructors.

  7. All swimmers in all levels must bring their own pool noodles each day to lessons. Levels 3, 4, & Adv. Tech may bring their own kickboard if you own one. You may not leave your noodle or kickboard at Peddie. It must leave with you each day and return with your swimmer the next day.

  8. Locker room use permitted for post-swim changing for students who are independent in changing or have same-sex adults accompanying them. Face coverings MUST be worn at ALL TIMES while changing if unvaccinated. Locker room capacity is 3 patrons in each designated area, or bathroom stalls may be used. EVERYONE WHO IS NOT VACCINATED MUST WEAR A FACE MASK IN THE BUILDING AT ALL TIMES.

  9. There are NO REFUNDS OR MAKE-UPS for cancelations that are out of our control, such as snow, ice, thunder, etc. See our Thunderstorm Procedures. If there is a cancelation that we can control (pool problems, or instructor issues), we will either make-up the class or give you a credit.

  10. ANY requests for changes in class day/time/session/instructor/etc once you have registered will be charged a $25 change fee, which will be posted to your credit card on file.

  11. If your swimmer is registered for a class that does not fill Peddie Swim School reserves the right to cancel that class. We will make every effort to find a different day and time for your swimmer to have a lesson at the appropriate level.  

  12. If we must move your child down to a lower level once the session begins, you will be charged a $25 change fee to your credit card on file.  To avoid this fee, read the Class Descriptions carefully, and/or current families should follow the steps outlined in the Curriculum Tracking when registering.

  13. There are NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS for the classes once you have registered for any reason. We cannot refund/credit money due to illness, injury, or vacations.

  14. There are NO MAKE-UPS for missed classes for any reason (illness, injury, vacation, etc.) Our staff is paid to be here, even if your child is not here.

  15. Peddie Staff may take photographs during lessons to be used for promotional and/or advertising purposes, however, the names of our students will not be published.  If you do not wish your child to be photographed, please notify the Peddie Swim School in writing.

  16. All parking for lessons is in the Athletic Center parking lot which has 300+ spaces. Do not park in front of the building or along the median. Handicapped spaces are available for those with valid handicapped tags only.

  17. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT YOUR CHILD AND THE INSTRUCTOR ARE DOING THEIR BEST. SOME CHILDREN LEARN AT A SLOWER RATE. THE MOST BENEFICIAL TIP FOR SWIMMING IS TO RELAX AND HAVE FUN. TRY TO GET THIS ACROSS TO YOUR CHILD EVERY TIME YOU COME FOR LESSONS!

  18. Please remember that we use the Peddie School's facility. Please respect the facility, its employees, and the students when you are here. Any vandalism or improper behavior will result in removal from the program.

  19. If you have a concern or question about the lesson program or an instructor, please address these issues to the Aquatics Director, Meredith Locasto at 609-944-7537 or [email protected] You can also email the Lesson Coordinator, Corina Simms at [email protected]
