Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT MAKES ELIXR SWIM SCHOOL DIFFERENT?

There are a few things that set us apart. Firstly, the tranquil atmosphere of Elixr Health Club Bondi Junction provides the ideal teaching environment for our nationally qualified Swim School instructors. Secondly, we teach tried and tested swim programs to small classes – we stay below the recommended number of participants per class. And thirdly, our instructors focus on improving technique before increasing distance to ensure that those children who progress to squad training do so with the correct technique in place.

WHEN SHOULD MY CHILD START SWIMMING LESSONS?

National guidelines recommend that babies younger than six months do not attend public pools, and in accordance with this, we enrol babies from eight months onwards. Starting lessons at this age ensures that your little one has more neck stability, a more mature immune system, and increased awareness of their surroundings. Until such time as you start swimming lessons, bathtime is the perfect way to introduce water play into your little one’s routine – pour a trickle of water onto their tummy, make little splashes with bath toys, and show them how to kick their feet to make a splash.

HOW DO I ENROL MY CHILD?

It’s quick and easy. Read through the levels above and click on the icon to take you to the relevant form to complete. A member of our Swim School team will be in touch. Alternatively, give us a call on (02) 8113 1109. Once we’ve sent through your paperwork, we’ll hold your spot for 48 hrs. Given the popularity of our Swim School, if you do not return your completed forms within 48 hrs, your place will be allocated to someone else. For your convenience, fees are payable every ten weeks via automatic direct debit, ensuring that your child remains enrolled.

DOES ELIXR SWIM SCHOOL HAVE MEMBERSHIPS AND DIRECT DEBITS?

Our direct debit system is quick and convenient and automatically re-enrols children at the end of each 10-week lesson cycle. This means that parents no longer need to remember to do so and are therefore no longer at risk of losing their preferred class day and time.

DOES ELIXR SWIM SCHOOL FOLLOW SCHOOL TERMS?

We run on 10-week terms regardless of school holidays (public or private) and may on occasion run a week into the school holidays.

CAN I BOOK CLASSES FOR ALL MY CHILDREN ON THE SAME DAY?

While we do our best to book lessons for members of the same family as close together as we can, this is not always possible given that classes for under 5s take place in the morning, while those for children over 5 take place in the afternoon.

WHEN DOES THE DIRECT DEBIT COME OUT OF MY ACCOUNT?

Our debits come out on the 15th of March / June / September / December of the term. This is an automatic payment. Should you wish to cancel it, please notify us in writing at swimschool@elixr.com.au. For more information, please consult our Terms and Conditions.

WHAT’S ELIXR’S CHILD PROTECTION POLICY?

Elixr takes child protection very seriously and we take advise from all national governing bodies to keep up to date on information. All businesses with child-based activities should have a child protection policy in place. If you would like to view our child protection policy please email swimschoolmgr@elixr.com.au for a copy.

Do I need to supervise my child at the pool?

Children under 14 – Parents/guardians are required to be present before, during, and after their child’s swimming lessons. No exceptions until the age of 14 years.

Children aged 14 and above – Parents/guardians are not required poolside. Your child can be dropped off/collected or make their way to/from the swim school.

Can I take photos or videos of swimming lessons?

Families wishing to film or photograph/film their child at the swim school must consult with Swim School office staff before using cameras of any description, so we can respect everyone’s privacy in and around the pool. Changing rooms, toilets, showers, or other sensitive areas are a strictly zero-tolerance policy for cameras to film and photograph.
