COVID-19 Update - Learn to Swim Lessons
When are swimming lessons restarting?
Waves remains temporarily closed in line with state government restrictions. We are continuing to monitor the situation and will provide updates in relation to the re-start of Learn to Swim once we have further information.
With current restrictions in place, Term 4 Swim lessons will not commence from Monday 5th October, however we are planning for a modified program later in the term should restrictions allow.
The return of Learn to Swim is our priority and we will continue to plan for a range of scenarios including a modified Term 4 program, as well as our January holiday swim intensive programs.
Once we have a restart date, all our families will be notified via email, our website and Facebook.
What happens to my Learn to Swim booking?
Direct Debit – All direct debit payments are on hold until our regular lesson timetable resumes. As direct debit bookings are an ongoing enrolment, you will retain your same class & time as you were swimming in before the closure. Once lessons resume, you will be enrolled in for this same class automatically. Opportunities to change classes will be made available prior to any re-start. If you wish to cancel your booking, you must contact us otherwise you will be automatically re-enrolled once we reopen.
Upfront Term Payments – If you paid for Term 2 or 3 upfront, you would have been credited back for lessons that were scheduled to occur during the closure. This credit can be used for any future booking. A priority re-booking opportunity for our past term based students will be made available prior to any lessons re-starting. Your credit can be used for this rebooking. If you wish to request a refund for term 2/3 instead, please contact us to organise this.
Our Aquatic Education programs cater for all age groups, ranging from six months to adults.
Using the Royal Life Saving Swim and Survive Program, our Leisure Centres aim to build confidence in the water through familiarisation,
water safety and stroke progression in a fun, friendly and relaxed environment.
Preschool lessons begin from six months of age and promote water confidence so children are comfortable in the pool.
School-aged children gain confidence in the water and develop stroke techniques.
Adult classes are also available and range from beginners to stroke techniques and fitness.
