Group classes are held morning or evening. Morning classes are held within 10-11:30 AM, evening is 6-7:30 PM. Lessons are 30 minutes. Please arrive at least 5 minutes early. Goggles are optional for everyone EXCEPT for beginners in the first week. No fins, face masks, life jackets, or floaties are allowed. Please apply sunscreen before you leave the house so your swimmer won't be slippery in the instructor's grasp and so it won't come off in the water.
There are usually no more than 4 swimmers in a group; less swimmers the younger they are and possibly one extra if the group is older. Youth lap swim usually has 4 to 8 swimmers in it. A session is 8 lessons held on Mondays through Thursday(with Friday being a make up day).
The fee is $60.00 and it can be paid through the website's "Store" page, or by cash or check on or before the first lesson. Alternatively, you can email your payment through PayPal, please send $61.50 to firstname.lastname@example.org Payment must be received on or before the first lesson.
The first class will be a little less swimming than the normal half-hour because it is our assessment and sorting swimmers into groups. At the end of this class, we will work out class times for each group right there on the deck.
Make up lessons will be offered when Parker Pool Staff must cancel the lesson due to weather or other reasons. Friday will be the make up day. If you miss a class for any reason, no make up lesson will be offered.
Please be very careful when entering your email address. This is how we communicate with you initially. We also use the Remind app to notify of changes due to weather, make up lessons, and any other issues - this will all be explained on day 1.
