Children’s Lessons T&Cs

Class numbers are projected target figures (from 3 to 12) and are not guaranteed. If an unforeseen situation arises where an Instructor is absent and we cannot organise a replacement Instructor, classes may be joined if considered appropriate by management. On rare occasions a class may be cancelled. For this reason, the Instructor of classes may fluctuate at times.

Class sizes may be affected if an individual is re-graded to a higher or lower level, where another smaller class is not available to that person.

Lessons are in 45minute timeslots, which is inclusive of a recreational settling in period.

In the event of pool closure, pool management will offer credit to your account for that missed lesson. No refunds will be given. Children’s must be 4 years or older to participate in our lessons and no older than 8 years of age to participate in our level 1 class.

For children under the age of 8, parents/guardians are required to remain in the spectator’s area during lessons.

Re-enrolment / Booking T&Cs

All children must be re-enrolled during the dates specified by pool management to secure the space for the following term.

It is the responsibility of each parent/guardian to know when children are to be re-enrolled.

Terenure College Swimming Pool will NOT personally notify parents/guardians to ensure their child is re-enrolled.

Children who are not re-enrolled during the specified rebooking period may lose their space.

Payment must be made at the time of booking to secure spaces. Lessons that are not completed by choice or non-attendance are not refundable or transferable, without exception.

For long term medical absences or where medical certificates state a need to abstain from swimming for a period, please send a dated medical certificate to us via email. A discretionary decision will be made by management on a case-by-case basis. Pro rata credit notes will be issued following management decision.

There is a 14-day cooling off period from the day of your booking, during which time you can avail of a pro rata refund (less 5% administrative costs).

Refunds will not be issued for lessons missed, similarly, there will be no make-up lessons for classes missed. 

Movement / Progressions T&Cs

Every effort is made by our Swimming Instructors to provide the best instructions for each child at the right level. Instructors do their best to ensure children move through levels as soon as they are ready. We operate a continuous assessment basis for every student in the interest of fairness.

Progressions will also depend on availability in the next level.

Children are rebooked first into the same day, time, and level that they currently swim at. If your child progresses a level and the next level class is at capacity, you will be offered an alternative timeslot.

Where no alternative time is available the child will have to remain at the same level until a space becomes available.
