  • Banook aims to align our swim programming around the paddling schedule to enable children to participate in all club activities. We will make every reasonable effort to resolve conflict between swim programming and paddling where it occurs.
  • Swim lessons are organized on a first come, first served basis. Numbers are limited and some who express interest may not be accommodated. We apologize in advance if we have more interest than space available. 
  • Lessons offered will be based on the interest shown. We reserve the right to NOT OFFER certain levels, if the need is not there. We are a small club with limited resources and may not be able to offer all levels in this second session. We are able to provide swim assessments, upon request, for level placements. Please email [email protected] to organize an assessment.
  • We encourage you to complete the sign up form ASAP so we can plan accordingly. 
  • The fee is $60 per child per session (Each session is 4 lessons per week for 3 weeks).
