- Arrive on time & ready to swim – change room facilities are limited, we recommend arriving with your child ready to swim and dressed in their swim gear.
- Check in – please ensure you scan the QR code to check in at Reception every visit and show staff that you have checked in using the Service NSW app for you and your child.
- Recreational Swimming – we ask that your child does not enter the water prior to their session, so that they are ready and organised at the start of their Squad or Learn To Swim lesson.
- We ask that you do not attend your session if your child or anyone in your immediate family is feeling unwell or displaying cold/flu symptoms.
To enable the Thredbo Leisure Centre to open this season a revised operating model is in place. For entry requirements at the Thredbo Leisure centre, click here.
- Parents or guardians are advised to be present prior to, during and after their child’s lesson.
- For parents of older children in our Squad programs you can wait off premises during the session, however we recommend you check the pick-up time.
- Seating has been positioned around the centre to adhere to social distancing requirements. We ask that parents and guests avoid moving seating where possible.
Here are some nearby activities that can be done in less than an hour:
Under current regulations we can have a maximum of 20 participants per class or group for lessons/squad/training activities within an indoor recreation facility. We have implemented these regulations for our squad program, which enables us to minimise the number of children in each lane and allow for an increased ability to maintain social distancing.
Under the current Health Order all individuals who are 16 years and over must be fully vaccinated to attend a pool, while individuals who are under the age of 16 years may attend if not vaccinated, as long as the accompanying adult is fully vaccinated.
It is currently a requirement that any person who is over 12 years of age must wear a fitted face mask while in any indoor area, which includes our reception and pool surrounds. We ask that all parents wear an appropriate face mask while supervising their child and watching the lesson.
In line with the NSW Public Health Order to ensure the highest level of safety for Learn to Swim attendees our instructors in the water will not be wearing a face mask. This is to ensure that your child can clearly hear and understand any direction provided during the lesson and, once leaving the water, these instructors will resume wearing a face mask as soon as possible. All Swim coaches on the edge of the pool will be wearing a face mask during the session, however they may also be required to remove the mask to ensure that your child can clearly hear their directions and pass on relevant information.
If a student, parent or a staff member has tested positive and has been at our swim centre while infected, we will be notified by the NSW Health Department and we will follow their guidelines regarding the next steps that our organisation will take.
We will ensure that all children in our Squad and Learn to Swim programs are distancing where possible. However, to ensure a safe swimming environment our instructors will not be required to distance from your child and will still be able to hold, support and correct your child as they are learning.
Yes, all change room facilities are still open, however we are restricted in the capacity for these areas. Occasionally, there may be a delay in gaining access, so we do recommend that you arrive ready to enter the water and leave as soon as possible after each lesson.
In line with the current Government Guidelines we are restricted in what pool facilities we can offer. Currently fully vaccinated adults or unvaccinated people under 16 years of age are only able to access our indoor pool facilities for swimming lessons, squad training, lap swimming and rehabilitation activities. We will therefore require your child to remain out of the water until the commencement of their program and they will be asked to exit the water upon completing the session. We request that all parents assist in implementing these processes and assist in keeping your child out of the water prior to and after their session.
