PRIVATE LESSONS WITH K&K

PACK YOUR SWIM BAG

  • Swimmer's bathing suit

  • Swimmer's towel 

  • If your child gets cold easily, we suggest wearing a swim shirt

  • Swim diapers are mandatory for children who are not yet potty trained. Reusable swim diapers that hug tightly around the waist and thighs are the most effective. To prevent water contamination, we require our swimmers to wear 3 layers over the bottom 

  • Goggles that fit snuggly around the eyes. K&K carries goggles for purchase (for all age groups) in the online merchandise section of the website  http://kkswimschool.com/merchandise/

  • If your swimmer is nervous, bring your child's loving bath toy to break the ice and enjoy their first lesson

  • A snack for them to eat after class as they may be hungry after all their hard work

BEGINNERS: 
What to Expect 

Your first few lessons are all about learning the basics and getting acquainted with your instructor. Swimming lessons can be nerve-wracking, so we incorporate water loving activities with basic swimming skills. We watch for certain cues from the swimmer to make sure we are not progressing too quickly while challenging them to see their potential in the water.

RELATIONSHIP BUILDING  

This is the most important part of your journey with us. Our instructors are all trained specifically to teach this program. Their main objective is to get your child swimming and loving the water. 

Some young swimmers may have a tough time leaving mom and dad on deck. Our instructors use a proper tone of voice, nurturing words and comforting touch to help ease them into a loving, trusting relationship with them. We want to make this is the best experience for your family as possible, so making a plan of action with your instructor right off the bat will help the whole transition.

The parent's relationship with the instructor should be just as strong as the swimmer's. This will give the child a sense of security with their new teacher.

KEEP AT IT

 Are you stuck at a standstill with a fussy swimmer? Or did your little one suddenly regress?

We rely heavily on communication from parents with any questions, comments or concerns you may have during your time with us. Our mission is to get your child swimming. Consistency, teamwork, communication and structure is how we will get there! 

END RESULTS


At the end of your first session, your swimmer will leave feeling more comfortable in the water. Our classes are designed to teach beginners who have had little exposure to the water to an advanced swimmer that can swim all four Olympic strokes with confidence.

No matter the case, your journey within our swim school is tracked in your swimmer's Skill Tree on IClass Pro's Parent Portal. To learn more about how to track this on your profile, scroll down to the IClass Pro section of this email. 

Swimming is not easy, teaching it is even harder. Management is always there to make sure that lessons are running smoothly. Though, if ever you have any trouble, be sure to contact head office immediately in order to fix the situation and preserve the relationships we have built with your swimmer. 

WHAT COMES NEXT? 


K&K's levels are competency-based, building their level of skill in the water with 9 steps.  

Technical skills have their own breakdown by stroke and are taught in order.  

Speak to your instructor about which Learn to Swim or Stroke Development level would be appropriate for your swimmer or view your Skill Tree report on your IClass Pro account.

Keep food & drinks off and away from the pool deck

There are seating areas located outside of the pool areas if you wish to have a snack. We want to make sure the water is as contaminated-free as possible

Throw away all garbage & diapers immediately 

There are garbage cans located on the pool deck & in the washrooms

Use your own towel 

Please leave the hotel’s towels for their guests. This drives massive costs to the facility, which will in-tern drive up the costs of our classes

The whirlpool (hot tub) / sauna /steam room /waterslides are to not be used before and/or after your lesson 

  • These amenities are off limits to our school and are dangerous to children if not supervised by a professional. 

  • During your lesson, should your swimmer use the whirlpool, this is at your own risk. Consent from the hotel is not given for whirlpool use once the lesson is completed 

  • The client should consult a physician before using the whirlpool

Keep your outdoor / street shoes & strollers at the front entrance 

This is to prevent injury due to bare feet on the pool deck and contamination of the water our children swim in

For non-potty trained swimmers, three layers over their bottoms to prevent any accidents from leaking is mandatory 

Reusable swim diapers, disposable swim diapers, plastic coverings, bathing suits are all forms of layers. Should any accidents leak into the water, the remainder of our lessons for the day must be cancelled

Entry into the water is prohibited if the swimmer has diarrhea or has had diarrhea consecutively for the past two weeks, or has an interim disease or a disease communicable from the skin. 


Unfortunately, failure to comply will result in discontinuation of K&K services
