FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
HOW DO I REGISTER FOR SWIM LESSONS? AND, HOW MANY CHILDREN ARE IN A CLASS?
You may register for swim lessons by calling Coach Tracy at (205) 901-7254 or emailing her at iSWIM@STEELCITYSWIMSCHOOL.com
Classes have anywhere from 1 to 5 children.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR MY CHILD TO LEARN HOW TO SWIM?
Success is a relative term. Every child is an individual and, as such, so should be your expectations. For me, swimming is a lifesaving skill that should be MANDATORY for all children. I believe you cannot put a price on the safety of your children.
WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD WEAR?
CHILDREN 3 AND UNDER ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR REUSABLE iPLAY CLOTH DIAPERS. These are available for purchase at the JCC front desk.
When dressing for swim lessons, please think "simple is better". A simple swim shirt with the iPlay re-usable swim diaper is sufficient. Complicated two piece swim suits and one piece suits are difficult to put on and take off (especially when wet). This can be VERY FRUSTRATING for newly potty trained children. Ideally, long hair should be pulled back and out of the face or contained within a silicone swim cap. Child size goggles are optional.
WHAT IF MY CHILD IS ABSENT ON THE DAY OF HIS OR HER LESSON?
Please remember that CONSISTENT ATTENDANCE and REPETITION in swim lessons are critical for success.
CANCELLATION POLICY: Cancellations must be made 12 hours prior to the lesson or payment will be forfeited. In addition, if a makeup lesson is not scheduled within 24 hours, the payment will be forfeited.
This is my job -- not something I do in my spare time. I promise to respect your commitments. Please afford me the same courtesy.
