Centre Update

Dear Members,

We hope that you are all well and safe during these challenging times. We continue to monitor relevant updates from the Government, Lifesaving Victoria, the Department of Education and other sources of information on COVID-19, and at this stage, unfortunately, the Recreation Centre remains closed to our members until further notice. 

Learn-to-Swim

The Learn-to-Swim Term 3 program is postponed, and we hope to be able to complete the outstanding Term 3 lessons during Term 4 so that your child can be safe in and around the water leading into the summer period. We will communicate a start date as soon as we are able. We await communication from the Victorian government regarding the lifting of restrictions for indoor pools in Regional Victoria. The lesson schedule will remain the same when we are able to open in Term 4 so your child’s lessons will be on the same day and time. 

If your circumstances have changed and you are no longer able to complete the remaining lessons in Term 4 or require a change of day, please inform the Centre at ltsadmin@geelong.vic.edu.au and we will do our best to accommodate changes.   

The Centre is currently looking at our plans for 2021 particularly the re-enrolment process for Term 1. More information will be available on this in due course.      

If members wish to have their term payments refunded, you can submit a request for credit here

If you require further information or assistance regarding our Learn-to-Swim program please contact ltsadmin@geelongcollege.vic.edu.au or phone 52263129 between 9am –2pm Monday to Friday.

Swimming memberships
  • All current (3, 6 and 12 month) swimming memberships will remain suspended effective of the closure date and reactivated once the centre is reopened on request by the member.  
  •  A reminder that 10 visit passes don’t have an expiry date. 
User Groups /Swim clubs

No user groups or swim clubs will be able to conduct their programs at the Centre until further notice.
Intensive Learn-to-Swim and Diving program  

The intensive Learn-to-Swim and Learn-to-Dive programs planned for the September school holidays are cancelled. We hope to be able to run these excellent programs again in 2021. If you have paid a deposit for this program the Centre will hold this payment as a credit for the next program unless notified. If you require a refund please contact ltsadmin@geelongcollege.vic.edu.au

With the situation changing regularly, we will continue to provide up to date information on the College website, SMS system and emails to keep all our members informed.

We thank you for your continued support and wish you and your families good health and some down time as we work toward stopping the spread of this virus together.
