Parents Guidelines

Parents are encouraged to stay and watch their swimmers in this group as the swimmers tend to be younger and may be a little nervous. The teacher or coach may approach you for help in dealing with any issues, goggle, hat etc, but please do not do the following:

  • Go up to poolside to speak to your child without first speaking to the teacher or coach.
  • Attempt to teach/coach your child from poolside yourself. If you wish to help out teaching and coaching please speak to us first.
  • Distract the teacher or coach by attempting to engage them in conversation about your swimmer(s) during the lesson.

If you have specific questions or wish to discuss your child’s progress, please wait until after the session to arrange a mutually agreeable time and place. The Parent’s Code of Conduct can be found here.
