Swimming Lessons During COVID-19

At KCS, the safety of our families is our number one priority. Our swim school was founded on low-ratio group lessons but, as a result of COVID-19, we feel offering private and semi-private 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.

Pools Are OPEN

On Friday February 12th, the Province of Ontario announced that Ottawa would be re-opening in the Orange colour code on Tuesday, February 16th. As per the Phase 3 reopening plan regulations, any business that is open and provides in-person teaching or instruction must enable students to maintain a physical distance of at least two metre from any other person who is not in the same household as them except where necessary for teaching and instruction that cannot be effectively provided if physical distancing is maintained.

Since swimming lessons are a key life skill and by nature instructional, we can follow these new regulations. As always, the safety of your kids is paramount. To ensure that this new lesson format is safe for your kids and for our team members we have:

  • Adapted our lesson plans to reduce the amount of physical contact between your kids and our AEs;
  • Decided to continue only offering private and semi-private lessons;
  • Properly configure our big pool to facilitate physical distancing and installed plastic barriers between lanes in the small pool.

We will also continue with all of our existing COVID-safety measures.

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:

How Monthly Lessons Work

Our swim school works on a monthly subscription basis – like the gym but without the contract – so you can sign up at any time!

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 we are holding a spot as well as scheduling an instructor just for you, 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.
