Pool information & Registration Policies
Minimum enrollment is required, or lesson will be cancelled, or classes combined. Lessons will be offered in both morning and afternoon to accommodate as many participants as possible. Exact times will be communicated by June 20th. Staff will call to confirm time and date of lessons before they start. Red Cross recommends lessons to be 30 minutes for preschool to level 4 and 45 minutes for level 5 to 10. Lessons run daily Monday to Friday including holidays for a two-week period. The lesson includes arrival time, time on deck, time in pool and departing time. We try our best to start lessons on time. Please ensure your child uses the washroom before lessons and waits in the change room until lessons are called. Don't forget sunscreen! Payment is cash and cheques only. Cheques are to be made payable to the "Municipality of West Elgin". There is a $25 NSF cheque fee. Postdated cheques must be dated for before the start of program. Payment must be made at time of registration. Spaces cannot be held without payment. Refunds may be made in the case of an emergency, illness, compassion or other extenuating circumstances at the discretion of management. Original receipt is needed.
