Why has my child been recommended to swim in the same level again?


Each child develops at a different pace, but it is common for children to be recommended to swim in the same level for longer than one term if they have not yet completed the criteria. If you have questions about your childs swimming development, please contact the responsible coach directly. Unfortunately the office staff is unable to discuss these issues with parents.

Who do I speak to if I would like to offer my feedback on the lessons?


All constructive feedback is appreciated by the club. We always strive to improve the quality of our lessons. The most effective way to provide feedback is to talk to the group’s responsible coach in person, by the pool, either before or after the lesson. In case your expectations were not met eventually, please contact us at


What should I do if my child does not want to get in the water during lessons?

It is common for swimmers to feel nervous during the first swimming lessons. We recommend that parents take the following steps to support their children if that is the case:


1-Arrive a little earlier for the training so that your child can feel accustomed to the pool environment.

2-Let the children sit at the edge of pool and just watch the pool for a little while; explain to the child that it is perfectly okay to do so. It is important that the child does not feel pressured to get in.


3-Always inform the responsible swimming coach about the situation and work with they to encourage the child.


4-As a last resort, you as a parent may be in the water during the lesson until the child is feels comfortable in the group. Please make sure to discuss this possibility with the coach before taking a decision. 


Please remember that, although the coaches will do their best to help a nervous swimmer, they do not have the possibility to help all swimmers individually;  we therefore ask parents do as much as possible to help their children to take part in the lessons.


How do I report absence?

Please contact if you know that your child will be absent from a training session. We pass on the information to the responsible coach.


As a parent, can I sit and watch when my child has training in the teaching pool?

We recommend that parents of swimmers in the groups Fisk and upwards to not sit by the pool during lessons. This is because the presence of parents by the poolside can be distracting for both swimmers and coaches.


For swimmers in Baddaren, Sköldpaddan and Pingvinen, parents can sit by the pool because their children are younger. However, be aware that it is important that there are not too many people by the pool.


We also ask you not to talk to the swimmers or coaches during the lessons. This can be distracting and also affect safety as the coachs attention should be on the swimmers throughout the lesson and the swimmers should be focused on what the coach is saying.


What cancellation policies apply to your courses?

All possible cancellations or requests for changes must be sent to For unsubscribers more than 7 days before the start of the course, the entire course fee will be charged, no refund will be made. Exception: in the case of a presentation medical certificate, a refund can be made.


Please note that the courses may be canceled if we do not have enough swimmers booked.
