Terms and Conditions for Group technique and Squad training sessions

 

The following terms and conditions apply to all participants (“you”) attending adult group swimming lessons organised by Speedy Swimming (“we” or “us”). Please ensure you have read and understand the following and please keep a copy for your records.

 

1. Acceptance of terms and conditions

  • By booking onto our squad training sessions you are accepting these terms and conditions and they will form a binding contract between you and us.

  • You will ensure that you follow the swimming pool rules (Aldershot pool or Guildford Lido - depending on location of the squad) set out at the start of each swim session, and any rules that are specific to Aldershot pool or Guildford Lido.

  • We reserve the right to vary these booking terms and conditions at any time upon reasonable notice to you.

 

2. Lessons

  • All lessons will start promptly at the agreed start time. If you arrive late to the pool, warm up in an adjacent lane or join the back of the lane if they are doing swim drills or intervals. 

 

3. Minimum requirements

  • In order to attend our courses you must be able to swim 100 metres of a front crawl swimming stroke continuously and without rest.

  • If in our coaches professional opinion you are unable to comply with these minimum requirements, you will be asked to leave the group lesson and will not be able to take part in further group lessons until you have demonstrated to us that you meet such minimum requirements. You will not receive a refund of your lesson fee. This is just so that we can provide the group with an equal level of coaching throughout the session, and isn't to put you off swimming with our Speedy Swim Clubs.
