|Amidst plenty of excitement for pools reopening and rising vaccination levels, we’ve been informed the City of Sydney will be reopen their indoor pools from Monday, 18th October. This is really exciting news for all our swimmers who attend Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre.
While we prepare ourselves for an eventual return to classes, we have a few updates and announcements to share with you, plus an updated COVID Safety plan detailed below.
Most importantly, we’re expecting that the spring/summer season will be extremely busy for both the pools and our classes. With this in mind, if you’re keen to grab a spot in our classes before Christmas, please get in touch with us ASAP so that we can book a spot for you, or book into a class online before they fill up!
In super exciting news, we’re launching classes in Rockdale from Saturday the 23rd of October! Read on for more details further down in the newsletter.
At the moment, we are taking private lesson bookings and group classes for Beginners, Beginner 1 and Stroke Foundations at Rockdale.
We will be returning to Prince Alfred Park Pool, Victoria Park Pool, Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre from Wednesday, 1st December and the Auburn Ruth Everuss Aquatic Centre from 30th October subject to confirmation by pool management.
Sadly, post-lockdown we’re saying goodbye to two of our amazing teachers Shayne and Pat. We’re very sad to see them go and know many of you will miss them.
In happier news, Rachelle will be returning, taking her Friday night classes again at Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre from 3rd December. We know many of our clients at Ian Thorpe will be very pleased to see her.
In light of the COVID-19 situation that we have been in for the past two years, we will be moving all our packs to an autopay-based system for class payments. This will be better for many of you, as it will be smaller, regular weekly payments. It will also allow us to turn payments off should we encounter another lockdown.
The class packs will still available for the next few weeks. If you wish to purchase a pack, contact us directly or go online to the MindBody website/app. We will continue to provide details of the changeover well before it comes into effect.
Please note: never send us credit card details through email, SMS or any unsecured communication. The best way to organise payment is to fill in payment details online at MindBody so that they are fully secure. Or if you prefer, call the office.
