Frequently Asked Questions
How much do normal public swimming sessions cost?
I've just paid for the next block of lessons starting on the 17th of November.
Your place is secure, we will update the term dates when we know our re-opening day and you will get a 10-week swimming term.
What are our Covid safety measures?
What is the size and depth of the pool?
Hook Swim School operates our own private indoor pool. The pool is 15 metres long and 5 metres wide. 0.8m in the shallow end 1.8m in the deep end. Perfect for learn to swim. This is a great length for small groups of swimmers.
What should I bring to a lesson?
Swimming hats are compulsory, goggles are recommended. We have all the other equipment required on site. Please bring your own towel to dry off post lesson.
How often should my child come to swimming?
Coming to swimming lessons once a week, on a year round basis, is great for swimmer progress. If it is possible to get your swimmer in the water twice a week we will see even more rapid improvements.
However there is a learning curve with lessons so do not expect your child to make equal and constant progress at each lesson.
I am nervous about my child starting lessons, what should I do?
Any personal fear or anxiety you may have about the water can be easily transferred to your child. Try to be supportive and positive at all times with your child. Inform reception and the instructor privately about your concern and they will support you through your child’s first lessons.
How warm is your pool?
The pool temperature is maintained at 31-32 degrees celsius.
Will I need to get in the water?
A parent or guardian is required to be in the water for baby classes up until the age of 3. It is best to check with reception when booking to confirm.
It’s never too late to enrol your child into swimming lessons. Enrolments are taken at any time throughout the term and term fees are pro-rated. Each child is treated as an individual therefore no matter when they enrol they will be taught based on their own ability.
What is the parents role during the lesson?
For babies classes we require a parent or guardian to be in the water with the baby at all times. Once your swimmer is comfortable in the water then you are able to watch the lesson from the pool deck.
What can I do to help my child learn to swim?
Encourage your child to attend every lesson. Acknowledge all successes and ignore failures; have a positive approach.
Are swimming supplies available for purchase?
Yes, we have goggles, swimming caps, floatation belts and swim nappies available for purchase.
