Hi Forum Swim Academy Members

Well done to those parents and swimmers braving these colder mornings and afternoons, embracing their swimming, maintaining skills and keeping fit! Our pool is a constant 28.5 degrees all year round so the swimming part is not a problem, however after the class can be rather chilly so warm showers, efficient drying off and snug clothing (don’t forget those little feet and heads) are a must. Something warm in the tummy can certainly help, so come prepared with a snack if possible. Another handy tip is a hot water bottle wrapped in the swimmer’s towel. This feels so good as soon as you hop out of the water! For the tiny ones, our complimentary Forum Swim Academy lycra caps keep their heads warm while in the water. Please see reception or the Pool Deck Supervisor if you do not have one of these.

Term 3 is approaching fast so make sure you review the important dates below and pop the re-enrolment date into your diaries. Bookings are also open for our Holiday Intensive Program.

The priority re-enrolment for Term 3 will open on Monday 17 June and your unique link for online enrolment will be sent next week. Please use your unique link to re-enrol and pay online to avoid congestion at reception. If you require special consideration for Term 3 bookings, please contact me via  Beth.Bird@theforum.org.au or 4921 7337 prior to the payment deadline to arrange your booking.

When re-enrolling, you will be asked to agree to our terms and conditions. Although you may have read these before, there may have been some changes so I would ask you to read them again before agreeing and finalising payment.

ACTIVE KIDS VOUCHERS


  • Vouchers cannot be redeemed through online signup. Please contact reception to make your booking and bring voucher with you.
  • Vouchers cannot be accepted in arrears of making a booking, nor applied as a refund to a previous payment.
  • Vouchers are strictly one per child. They cannot be split between Active Kids Providers or used twice.
  • For children in Yellow & Red, please bring your voucher to reception for processing when confirming your booking.
  • For children in Blue Squad, please email your voucher to Barbara.Labrousse@theforum.org.au for processing.

Re-enrolment dates for Term 3:
Monday 17 June to Sunday 30 June
inclusive - Yellow and Red stage priority enrolment period.
Monday 1 July - The watch list for progressions and class transfers will be completed.
Tuesday 2 July - Enrolments open for new participants.
To ensure current enrolments get first preference for their current lesson, anyone wishing to change class times for next term are required to go on the watch list until priority period is complete.

If your child is progressing to the next level, please be aware that a new class time may be required as we cannot guarantee a class at the same time you currently attend. You can choose to re-enrol them in their current class to secure a place and be priority watch listed for the higher level, or, go directly on the watch list with no confirmed booking for Term 3. Whichever your preferred option, see the pool deck Supervisor or Member Relations to ensure you are on the watch list.

Private Lessons
Private lessons are available for all ages and abilities and are tailored to suit individual needs. Privates can be 1:1 or 2:1 and can be booked as a 30 minute or 45 minute class. All private lessons are payable upfront at time of booking.

30 minute lessons | 5 lesson package $200.00 | single booking $50.00 each.
45 minute lessons | 5 lesson package $250.00 | single booking $60.00 each.

Our extremely popular Holiday Intensive Program will run both weeks of the July school holidays. Please do not leave bookings until the last minute as we hate to disappoint and need to be prepared with instructors and classes in advance. We can provide extra classes if we have the demand but need some time to ensure instructors are available. The table below gives class times and prices. Our Red 3 sessions will also cater for Blue 1 swimmers, just advise staff when booking so we can identify the respective lessons and deliver the best program possible.

Our Holiday Intensive Program includes 45 minute classes for Yellow 3, Red 1 and Red 2. Yellow 2 classes are the usual 30 minutes and Red 3 classes are one hour with prices fixed at the same rate as regular lessons. Not only is this great value for money but also an excellent opportunity to re-enforce skills on a daily basis, a key component to fast-tracking learning. Bookings must be made for the five days. No make ups apply.

Please note Holiday Intensive times are subject to change dependent on numbers.

Blue Squads

Our Blue Squads are run perpetually and therefore there is no need for re-enrolment. Please remember to request a timestop should you be having any time off during the school holidays.

NUSwim Club members have been honing their skills at club night, ready to take on the Winter season. They have been set a different challenge each week with the best performed skill earning the swimmer the title of “Swimmer of the Week”. Winners of the award for the Short Course season so far appear in the photo above.

NUSwim Club welcomes new members to come and try club night on a Friday from 6.30pm. The club does not run during the school holidays.

Progressions Term 2

The Forum Swim Academy produces progression certificates for everyone completing the requirements of their current level and taking on the level above. As we are finding that very few people are collecting these from reception, we have decided to place them back on pool deck for you. Please see the pool deck supervisor for your certificate. Congratulations to all the champions who have progressed this term. Click here to see who is on the list.
