Splashy's: a family-run recreational centre and farm
Celebrating 29 years!
Splashy's follows the Red Cross educational curriculum and is the only other swimming school in the town of Bradford, aside from the Bradford Leisure Centre, that is inspected and approved by the Simcoe Muskoka Health Department. Although we are a small operation, Splashy's meets and exceeds all health and safety requirements as any other large community centre is required to do so.
Summer Fees and Class sizes:
Class size is important and that's why beginner levels have very condensed numbers. As kids get progress, they will need less and less hands-on instruction. Groups consist of 4 students in a beginner levels (preschool levels and up to level 3 of the swim kids levels), up to 5 students in level 4 and up to 6 students in levels 5+.
- Condensed group (40min): $144+HST
- Semi-private (2 in class) (30 min): $198+HST
- Private lesson, one-on-one (30 min): $270+HST
- Parent/tot group (30 min): $90+HST
Fees based on 9 classes
Note on terms:
Parent/tot: any child who may have a hard time being separated from a parent. We recommend children under the age of 4 to be placed in a parent/tot. Children who are 3 years of age may be included in a regular class on a case-by-case basis (if they are braver and more independent than the average 3 year old).
Little fishies: sea otter, salamander, sunfish (children aged 4-6) – still learning to swim on front with head up doing doggy paddle and still learning to float and glide through the water. Children aged 3 may be accepted on a case by case basis (i.e. if they are particularly brave, independent, or if they've done parent/tot previously)
Brave fishies: high level sunfish, crocodile, whale (children aged 4-6) – can swim on front with head up doing doggy paddle at least a short distance (5m or more). A crocodile or whale level in the preschool program is roughly the equivalent of swim kids level 2 and 3.
Levels 1-10: Students begin these levels when they are 7 years of age or older (or at least close to 7).
