Essential Info

Please ensure swimmers have a cap, water bottle and correct fitting goggles (named) at every session.

We ask that all swimmers are on the pool deck, ready to swim 5 minutes prior to class commencement with all swim equipment ready. It is disruptive to the program if children arrive late.

Please read our Terms and Conditions for more information.
