Swimming Lesson FAQ’s

We’ve put together some of our frequently asked questions below. You can also contact us directly at swimming@york-sport.com

For Duckling lessons (3yrs+) parents are only required to go in the water with their child for the Monday – Friday morning lessons.

  • Will we have the same instructor as normal?

    We try to ensure that your child has the same teacher each week, with the exception of sickness and holidays. When your child moves up a stage you may need to change day and/or time.

  • How will you be sanitising equipment?

    Children will be encouraged to use the same float, woggle or toys throughout the lesson and then between lessons these will be removed and cleaned by the teachers by submerging all equipment in the pool water and allowed to dry (which kills off the virus). Equipment will also be cleaned before and after swimming lessons each day.

  • How will drop off and collection work?

    Children will need to be on time (5 minutes early) so that they can be allowed onto the poolside to stand under their teacher’s name, ready for the class. Entry will not be allowed into the class once the lesson has been running for 5 minutes. 

  • What time should we arrive?

    Children should be changed and ready to be ticked on the registers by the swim team on poolside a maximum of 5 minutes before their lesson starts. No entry will be allowed to the lessons after the first five minutes of the class.

  • Is there a different exit from the poolside?

    The normal Village Changing Room will be used after your child’s lesson has finished. You will need to meet your child in this area after their lesson and take their belongings to them

  • Will showers be available?

    Showers and cubicles are both available in the Village Changing room.  We encourage where possible to wait and shower at home to reduce time spent in the area.
