Swimming Lessons Offered During COVID-19

At KCS, the safety of our families is our number one priority. Our swim school was founded on the principle of offering low-ratio group lessons but as a result of COVID-19, we feel offering private and semi-private (2 kids) lessons and socially distanced parent and tot classes, for the time being, is the responsible choice to ensure the safety and wellness of you and your family.

 

Given COVID-19, and for the time being, our usual low-ratio group lessons are not offered. In place, we are pleased to offer the following:

Private Lesson
(1 kid or 1 baby)

  • 4 x 25-minute personalized lessons with a 1:1 Student-to-Aquatic Educator ratio;
  • 95% + of Active Learning Time (Amount of time that your child is moving and taking instructions from our Aquatic Instructor);
  • Lessons tailored to the skills, areas of improvement, and unique learning style of your kids;
  • Our Learning Guarantee – if your child hasn’t moved up a level in 20 lessons, their swimming lessons are free until they progress to the next level;
  • Monthly assessments and progress reports through our customer portal.

*Offered for our Babies program (levels B1-B4), and Kids program up to level K6

Price: $220/month + HST

Semi-Private Lesson
(2 kids or 2 babies)

  • 4 x 25-minute personalized lessons with a 2:1 Student-to-Aquatic Educator ratio;
  • 85% + of Active Learning Time (Amount of time that your child is moving and taking instructions from our Aquatic Instructor);

Baby Group Lesson
(Socially distanced classes between each parent/tot and Aquatic Educator)

  • 4 x 25-minute lesson with a 4:1 Babies-to-Aquatic Educator ratio
  • 1 parent per baby in the water;
  • Have fun, learn the basics of swimming, and bond with your baby;
  • Lessons in our warm, shiver-free and shallow pools.

Offered for babies 3 months to 2.5 years old.

Price: $120/month + HST

*Our higher-level swimming lessons (K7-K12) will be unavailable as these lessons require our full pool space to work on endurance and stroke technique and cannot be provided in our required social distancing pool configuration.

** We do not provide refunds/credits or makeup tokens for missed private or semi-private classes.

How to Register

Let us take care of the hassle of registration! Simply fill in our registration form and one of our team members will complete the registration process for you! You’ll receive an email within 24hrs with the best time and date options available.

What if I Miss a Class?

Since our programs are exclusively private lessons we are holding a spot as well as scheduling an instructor just for you therefore we cannot offer refunds/credits or makeup tokens for these lessons.

COVID-19 Diagnosis

While we do not provide refunds, should any member of your family be diagnosed with COVID-19 we will credit your account with 2 weeks’ worth of missed lessons upon the provision of a medical note. This credit is valid for 90 days.

Unfortunately, we cannot hold your swim time for the duration of your quarantine. However, we will make every effort to find a swim time that works for you and your family upon your return.

COVID-19 Safety Measures

To all our existing KCS Families and to our new KCS Families, our number one priority is keeping you safe. Watch this video to see some of the key changes we’ve made to keep our lessons COVID-Safe and Secure.

How are My Kids Assessed in Private Lessons?

Our full and complete swimming education program includes monthly assessments of each swimmer’s technical and practical progress. Swimmers have the freedom to learn at their own pace and graduate to the next level when they are ready. No one fails and no one gets left behind.

What’s Survival Week?

In addition to our real-life focus, every month includes Survival Week training, where we work on core survival skills. Kids will learn what it’s like to swim with their clothes on, how to call for and receive help, how to tread water, and more.
