Welcome Letter - New Outdoor Program for Woody’s Private Swim Instruction:
A Little About Us:
We teach all strokes and levels from beginners to advanced swimmers. We teach adults and children age 5 y.o. and up. It is our goal to help you learn to enjoy the water and become a confidant swimmer as quickly as you feel comfortable. Classes are taught by Woody and her Co-teachers: Cameron Wilson & Gustavo Artman.
How Our Schedule Works:
Even though we all have similar teaching styles if you choose to schedule a weekly on-going time, it will be taught primarily by one teacher for consistency. Should one of our teachers have to miss a day, your class will be covered by one of our co-teachers. We do try to keep substitute teachers to a minimum. We are committed to helping all our clients reach their individual swimming goals. Learning to swim takes time and repetitions in water. So, our individualized program, schedule, and policies are designed to allow us to help you reach your goal.
We don't recommend client go longer then a week between classes. Due to our limited schedule we encourage you to pick a weekly time that works for you.
Clients has picked a weekly timeslot, and keep that timeslot as long as the classes run back to back weekly with no gap.
If you need to miss a week and want use to hold your timeslot for your return, payment will be due for the missed class. You also have the option of relinquishing the time and wait for a new opening after your return. Please keep in mind the new time will likely be on a different time and day.
We do have some drop in clients (which we call floaters), but due to our limited schedule at this time we can not guarantee, we will always have an opening when you want it. So, floaters must be flexible enough to make most openings on different days and times to insure we can see you on a regular basis to help you reach your goal.
Policy for Missed Class:
Payment is due when a class is scheduled. Unfortunately, if you miss a class payment is still due. Unlike a typical swim school that puts lots of students in a single class, our cost is higher, because we only do private classes. So, our flexibility is limited. But we feel or 1-on-1 individually tailored program is worth it. It allows us to give each of our clients exactly what they need.
Due to COVID-19 We have moved our classes to an outdoor pool where we plan to teach until the weather gets cold. We are running a limited schedule of one-hour classes.
Protocol for Teacher - All teachers will wear a plastic face shield and observe distancing as much as safely possible. KN95 mask will also be worn if closer contact is necessary.
