After some major upgrades to the indoor pool, we are very excited to announce that our BlueFit Swimming program is up and running as of Tuesday 14th June 2022!
Students who had already prepaid for the lessons at Sans Souci have been contacted to enrol. If you have also prepaid but have not yet been contacted please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you haven’t yet enrolled in the program, now is the time!
The BlueFit Swimming program operates in over 30 swim schools across Australia with structured levels that progressively build the swimming skills and water confidence of thousands of Australian children each and every day. We are very excited to extend our popular and successful program to the community of Sans Souci!
BlueFit Swimming consists of structured levels that progressively build swimming skills and water confidence. It is important to acknowledge that current students may have not yet learned some of the skills that are in their BlueFit Swimming lessons. Before enrolling in the program we may need to assess your child to ensure they are placed at the correct level.
With the introduction of the BlueFit Swimming program, you will be entitled to additional benefits such as make-up lessons, the online parent portal, and free access for students outside of class times. For more information about our class policies visit here.
Below you’ll find the answers to some common questions asked by parents who are new to BlueFit Swimming.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The BlueFit Swimming program is focused on ensuring our students enjoy learning to swim and that they are at the correct level to have the opportunity to be challenged, learn new skills as well as practice and further develop pre-existing skills.
Each level within the program has 8-10 skills that the students are working towards. These can be seen via your parent portal. When all skills are achieved within a level the student is then ready to move up.
You may notice some skills being practiced within the BlueFit Swimming levels that are different to the previous program’s level. During the first two weeks of classes we will monitor all lessons to ensure all students are enrolled at their appropriate level. Should you have any concerns, please feel free to chat with our friendly Pool Deck Coordinators.
Prices remain the same and are typically charged by direct debit in advance on a fortnightly basis. We will need you to complete a new Direct Debit Authority for payments when you enrol your child. We will honour any upfront pre-payments that may have been made.
Our discount structure may be slightly different to what you were used to. Visit our website to learn more about the various class discounts available.
Your child may be assessed to ensure that they are in the right class for their ability level. Please click to view the BlueFit Swimming Progression Chart.
The parent portal allows you to view your child’s progress, book make-up classes, pay outstanding fees and view important swim school resources. You will have access to the parent portal upon enrolment. Please note skills in the portal will not be updated until the first few weeks of lessons at the facility.
All teachers have been invited to apply to continue their employment at the Sans Souci Leisure Centre with BlueFit. We aim to retain quality staff and ensure lesson continuity for our students.
Students will be able to mark themselves absent up to 2 hours prior to their lesson via the parent portal. Students have 12 make up lesson per calendar year. Make up lessons are not transferable or refundable. All class management is done through the parent portal.
BlueFit offers the opportunity for your children to come and practice their swimming skills outside of their scheduled lesson time. Upon presentation of the BlueFit Swimming entry card, children can enter the facility with a full fee-paying adult.
Access outside of your lesson will also be available at the Hurstville Aquatic and Leisure Centre.
Children under 6 years of age: A parent or guardian is free with the child, the parent MUST be in the water with the child.
Children from 6 years of age: A parent or guardian pays entry and MUST be in the centre with the child (they can be a spectator).
We assess all children in the program every 4-6 weeks in their class. You can monitor your child’s progress in the Parent Portal. We continually monitor all children’s progress in conjunction with their swim teacher. If you wish to discuss your child’s progress, please speak to the Pool Deck Coordinators who are always on duty. It is the Pool Deck Coordinators’ role to provide customer service and feedback on program participants. As you can appreciate, our swim instructors need to focus on their classes at all times!
Students are required to have a guardian with them to enter the facility. Upon arrival for your first lesson you will receive a new access card that you will use each time you scan in. Once you have scanned in you will be given a coloured token. Before your child enters the lesson, they then place the token in the corresponding box in front of your lesson area.
