Due to a combination of the facts that humans are not natural aquatic creatures and New Zealand is an island nation full of beautiful beaches, lakes and rivers. It could be almost guaranteed that at some stage during a child's life, they will find themselves in a situation in or around water that could have potentially devastating consequences. Therefore, in order to give you some peace of mind and them a fighting chance, every child should be given the opportunity to learn how to swim, so that they can enjoy all the fun activities to be had in water safely.
At Swimsation when it comes to paying for a students lesson there are three options available, there are:
Option 1 - Pay in person at reception (EFTPOS, cash etc)
Option 2 - Top up a student's online Swimsation account via our online store
Option 3 - Direct bank deposit into the Swimsation bank account: 01-0102-0893903-02
NB: When paying by bank deposit please include the following information so we can allocate your payment correctly to your student's Swimsation account
Reference: Student's ID: 100000001
Particulars: Your Swimsation Branch (e.g PAPAKURA)
Code: Student's First Initial and Surname (e.g. J Bloggs)
When it comes to swimming there are so many variables that come into play, not least of all the fact that humans as a species are not naturally aquatic creatures.
One thing all swim instructors know for certain though, is that like anything in life, the more a student can practice swimming, the quicker they will improve. So if your child is not progressing quite as quickly as you would like, then take a minute and contemplate this question. "How long would it take a human to learn how to walk should they only allowed to practice it for 30 minutes per week for 40 weeks of a year? And of course, that is something that as humans we were actually born to do.
The good news is that more often then not, we find that at different stages along a student's learn-to-swim journey, they will have a "eureka" moment. Where all of a sudden, what they have been working so hard on, will just fall into place and they will advance up a level very quickly.
In order to help your child with reaching their next "eureka" moment quicker, please feel free to come and speak to your child's instructor at the end of a lesson, to see what you could work on with your child at home to assist with their progression.
Swimsation's class numbers are based primarily around ensuing we provide a safe student-to-instructor in the water ratio at all time for each progression level. Therefore as your child progresses through the levels you can expect the numbers in their lessons to vary from 4 up to 8 student per class.
No. It is Swimsation's policy that we do not give refunds for missed lessons. We will however, endeavour to provide students who miss lessons the option of attending a make up lesson.
NB: Make up lessons will not necessarily be with the same instructor and can not be carried over into the next term.
All Swimsation lessons will run for 20-25 minutes depending on the progression level the student is at. Please note that lesson will start at the time specified, so please ensure all students are changed and ready to go on time.
Yes. Swimsation requires the parents/guardians of students to remain in the facility during the duration of their child lessons. This is not only because it is safe practice to be watching your child while they are in or around water, but it also allows for quick and efficient changeovers between classes.
