Frequently Asked Questions

What if I can’t attend either of the registration days? 

Phone or fax registrations will not be accepted. Registrations are accepted on a first come, first served basis by submitting a completed registration form along with payment on registration day or any day after that. A friend or family member may bring in the completed registration form along with payment on registration day between the hours of 9am-1pm and 4pm-7pm.

Is there childcare available for non-members of the facility during lessons?

Kids Korner is available to non-members of the Wellness Center. Children between the ages of 6 months and 12 years are welcome to attend. Cost is $2.50 per hour, per child. Feel free to check out Kids Korner during registration.

What if my child misses a class?

Refunds and/or make-up classes will not be offered.  Credit will be issued only on a pro- rated basis if participation ceases due to medical reasons.  A physician’s note must be provided to the service desk within one week of discontinuing the program.  No refunds will be given due to pool temperature.

What does my child need to bring to his/her lesson?

Parents and children must bring their own towels. Children who are not toilet trained must wear a swim diaper or cloth diaper with plastic pants. Regular disposable diapers are not allowed. Tiebacks for children with long hair will help them swim without the distraction of hair in the face.

Why is my child asked to shower before entering the pool? 

Aurora Wellness Center policy states that showers are required before entering the pool. This policy is in place for the health and safety of over 200 people who use the pool each day.

Where does my child change for lessons?

Participants of the swimming program must use the boys’ and girls’ competitive locker rooms, or the family locker room.  Please be aware that the area outside of the locker rooms is a rehab patient waiting room.  We appreciate you being quiet and courteous to our patients in this area. Children are not permitted in the member locker rooms.

What can I do to help my child progress at a faster rate?

A child will not move to the next level until he/she has successfully demonstrated the skills required in their current level. Please remember that even though your child may not have advanced to the next level, instructors will individualize within each class, keeping all children challenged.  What can you do as a parent? Don’t compare children; each child will progress at a pace that’s right for them. Always be understanding and encouraging. Your child can practice their skills at home, blowing bubbles during bath time or using “big arms” while watching television. Ask their instructor for additional skills they can work on at home.

Can I watch my child’s lesson?

Parents are invited to stay and watch their child’s lesson. All parents are to observe classes in the Pool Observation Area, located on the upper level. Parents and children are permitted only in the aquatic area of the facility.

Gift certificates for member and non-member adult & youth aquatic programs are available for purchase in the Membership Office.
