As you may now be aware, the management of the Sans Souci Leisure Centre facility has transferred to BlueFit from May 9th, 2022.
BlueFit will take over the provision of Swimming Lessons at Sans Souci, with their popular and successful BlueFit Swimming program. Students currently enrolled in the learn to swim program will be contacted and re-enrolled in the coming week.
The BlueFit Swimming program 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. Swimming level assessment bookings coming soon.
Below is a range of information about this transition and your lesson. You will have seen the team in different uniforms, signage will change and the level names will change, however, it will be business as usual once we reopen. 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 students also have free access to the facility outside of class times. For more information about our class policies visit click here.
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 our Pool Deck Coordinators will observe 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 enroll your child. We will honour any upfront pre-payments that may have been made.
Our discount structure is slightly different to what you were used to. Below is a link to the discounts that will be applicable to your lessons. Click here for more information about our class discounts
Your child will be assessed to ensure that they are in the right class for their ability level. Click here to view the BlueFit Swimming Progression Chart and click here to access our BlueFit Swimming Assessment tool.
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 from ENTER DATE. Please note skills in the portal will not be updated until the first few weeks of lessons at the facility.
All teachers will be invited to apply to continue their employment at the Sans Souci Leisure Centre with BlueFit. We aim to retain quality staff and ensure continuity of lessons 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.
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 pay 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!
No, everything remains the same. Upon arrival, have your card scanned at reception. We will swap your old access card over to a BlueFit Swimming card through May. Once you have scanned in you will be given a coloured token. Before your child enters the lesson, they can then place the token in the corresponding box in front of your lesson area. In the first few weeks this will be the same area you are used to, however, may change as we have access to more of the pool. Lane maps will be available at reception. Students are required to have a guardian with them to enter the facility.
