Even out of lockdown, the ocean and swimming is a big part life in Australia, which is why making swimming lessons a fun and positive learning experience for our children is vital. Teaching kids water safety skills for life is our mission, and our goal is to instill a life long love and respect for the water. Splashed! has spent the last 11 years doing this for our Northern Beaches community (and even people who come to us from further afield!!)
Do you remember your childhood swimming lessons!? Many would say they remember at least some part of their first time swimming experience as a young child. Possibly older generations will recall being ‘thrown in the deep end’ and the experience wasn’t entirely positive (except that they survived to tell the tale!). These are not the memories we wish to create for our little Splashed! Swimmers. Every part of our lesson plans are considered and tasks created around the kids being able to challenge themselves in a fun and safe environment. It’s a building blocks approach to learning – we work to achieve small goals to get the end result! End results for each family can differ. Be it swim to survive, swim to compete or swim for fun, Splashed! can help in the critical years of the Learn to Swim experience.
If you are not yet booked in for this term and require a spot please call us on 9999 6715 for an over the phone assessment for your child as well as availability.
Term 1 2021 – Key Dates
Week 1 began on Wednesday 27 January.
If you missed your first lesson we are happy to provide a make up class where space in your child’s level is available. You have the term to do this make up as per our missed lesson policy. Please see the ladies at the desk to organise this.
We are now into Week 3, which began Monday 8th Feb – IT’S KICK WEEK!
A week where we change up the lesson plan and focus on the legs only. A very important skill in being propulsive in the water. This is a super fun week for the kids & teachers! During this time we ask that you settle any overdue fees for this Term. Remember we accept the Active Kids Vouchers. Simply forward your vouchers through to our email email@example.com for processing and contact the desk to fix up the balance where applicable.
Monday 15th Feb – Start of week 4 – IT’S PREP WEEK!
Back to the regular lesson plan. It is a good idea to have a casual chat about assessments the following week. This will help the kids to focus their attention to the tasks at hand. Quality practise gives them a really good chance of doing their very best when the assessor is watching in week 5.
Monday 22nd Feb – Start of week 5 – IT’S ASSESSMENT WEEK!
Give your best effort and concentration kids! You can do it ;) A report will be sent out with a breakdown of tasks to be achieved in order to move to the next level. If this isn’t your term to move up a class, thats ok, you will be able to refer to the report and see the areas you need to work on with mum and dad outside of Splashed!
Monday 1st March – Start of week 6 – CHECK IN FOR NEXT TERM
For swimmers who have been assessed and are remaining in the same level – let us know this week if you wish to continue lessons at the same day and time. We will protect your spot for the following term. Please email us or see us at the desk during this week.
Monday 8th March – Start of week 7 – CHANGE IT UP WEEK!
Is your child moving up to the next level? Or has your timetable changed and do they now have other activities such as soccer/football/netball training and need to change their lesson time? Whatever the reason, if you need to change class times please call us Monday 8th March 2021 from 8.30am. Remember to make it fair for everyone it is first in best dressed. Our number is 9999 6715.
Monday 15th March – Start of week 8 – IT’S EARLY BIRD WEEK & NEW BOOKINGS
Have you been swimming with us in Term 1? To show you our appreciation for being a loyal client, pay between the 15th and 21st of March and you will receive Term 2 fees at a discount. Oh and don’t forget to use those AKV if you still have them . New bookings for Term 2 202 are opened up at this point also. Client referrals are so appreciated! We thank all those that have done this for us in the past and TIA to all our lovely clients that do this for us in the future. It keeps the Splashed! Family rolling on ;)
Monday 22nd March – Start of week 9 – JUST A REGULAR WEEK ;)
Monday 29th March – Start of week 10 – SHORT WEEK!
