Frequently Asked Questions

Tell us about your swimming pools?

Our purpose-built facilities provide families with a clean and safe aquatic environment all year round.

Our heated pools are maintained to the highest hygienic standards with a world class filtration system that uses less chlorine, reduces skin and eye irritation, improves water quality and reduces water consumption.

We maintain a comfortable water temperature of 32.5° degrees and provide a vibrant pool space that caters to all ability levels and age groups.

The shallow end of our pools provides a safe learning environment, while our deep end provides students with the opportunity to practice water safety and survival skills.

We provide all the equipment required for your swimming lesson. The only things that you will need to bring along are:

 

  • Swimsuit
  • Towel
  • Swimming nappy (infants only)
  • A smile!

What change room facilities are available?

We pride ourselves on providing you with an aquatic facility that is well maintained and hygienic, every time you visit us.

Our modern facilities provide female and male change rooms that provide plenty of space for bags, towels and personal belongings. Our change rooms are air conditioned and fully equipped with temperature-controlled showers and toilets.

Students who are 7 years and older are required to use the same sex change room only.

We also have a separate change room for special needs students.

Can my child wear goggles?

Swimmers from Level 1 to Level 4 are discouraged from wearing goggles in lessons. A parent’s primary aim is water safety. As such, children MUST LEARN and KNOW that they can swim without goggles on. Children who learn from day one with goggles on ARE NOT as safe in the water (lakes, rivers, ocean) as those who learn without them.

It is a fact that children in Level 1 to Level 4 classes will spend less than 3 minutes with their faces in the water and should not experience eye irritation.

Swimmers Level 5 and above, goggles are recommended for eye protection, given the amount of time the face is submerged.

How do we know how are child is progressing?

There is a Certificate Booklet for each section of the program.

The Certificates outline the skills the swimmer can do, the skills being learned and the skills required to move onto the next Level.

The certificate received is the Level your child has PASSED. If for example your child is given a Level 4 certificate, they are now swimming as a Level 5 swimmer having just passed Level 4.

Can we take photos of our child?

If you wish to photograph or video your child during their lesson, please seek permission from Reception or Shift Supervisor. We request that you don’t take images of other children.

Out of respect for other families, we ask that no videos of Splash’s lessons be posted on social media. Photos are permitted as long as they only feature your child.

If we miss a lesson, can we organise a make up class?

Make-Ups
Regular attendance to lessons is very important but, we know that “things happen”. School and Family events, accidents, even car problems or challenging siblings can prevent us getting to our regular lesson!

There are a number of ways that we insure you against missed swimming lessons.

Make-Ups – every swimmer is entitled to 4 Make-Ups per calendar year, simply book your Make-Up online via the parent portal at your convenience. Make-Ups can be used anytime – subject to class availability. Extra Make-Ups are also provided for all public holidays

Illness – if your child is ill and unable to participate in their regular lesson for more than a fortnight (3 weeks or more), simply bring in a medical certificate and we will organise make-up classes for lessons missed.

Hold fee – If you are going away and want to hold your place in the class you are currently enrolled in, simply pay a hold fee of $25 per child or $40 per month per family.

What if our child is unwell, can they still swim?

Your child’s health and wellbeing is extremely important to us, so we encourage everyone to be mindful of other students, families and our staff, so please keep children at home when they are unwell.

You are always the best judge of whether or not your child is feeling up to their lesson, however if in doubt, leave them out!
