Oasis Swim School Policies

Missed Classes Policy

The Oasis Swim School does not offer make-up classes for missed swimming lessons. When you enrol your child/ren in swimming lessons, you are securing their place in the program at your specific day and time for the duration of the term.

However, to ensure that students can continue to practice and improve their skills, all students will receive a complimentary student membership for the term they are enrolled in. This membership allows students and their carer to come to the Oasis to practice their skills for free if they miss a class and can be used as many times as desired throughout the term.

Refund Policy

We can only offer refunds on lesson fees depending on the situation.

  • We cannot offer a refund on lessons fees for situations such as other sporting commitments, changing your mind about lesson bookings, or family holidays.
  • If your child sustains an injury or illness that prohibits participation in their lessons, we will give 'Family Credit' for the lessons missed. However, a medical certificate will be needed to verify your child’s injury/illness. Family Credit allows us to hold the remaining funds until the family wishes to make another purchase. This can be used for any service within the business or carried over to lessons for the next term. Family Credit needs to be used within 6 months of allocation.
  • In extenuating circumstances, Oasis Management will look at alternative solutions with the family.

If you would like to request a refund on your lesson fees, please complete a Cancellation/Family Credit Application Form and send it to reception, either by dropping it off in person or sending it via email to oasis@wagga.nsw.gov.au. Your application will be reviewed, and we will contact you if we need to discuss anything further.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much do swimming lessons costs?

Check our Fees and Policies page to find out our current costs.

What do we need to bring to swimming lessons?

Check out Levels and Skills page to see what you need to bring to your lesson.

Can we play in the other pools before or after our lesson?

Yes, you can certainly bring your child for a swim before or after their lesson however we encourage play swimming to be at the end of the lesson, so all students are full of energy for the lesson ahead. Play swimming is a great time to practice skills learnt during lessons. A play swim after their lessons can be good incentive for your child to try hard in their lesson.

However, play swimming is only allowed in the leisure area. We do not allow anyone in the ramp area of the program pool (lesson pool) before or after their lesson as this can be distracting to children currently in their lesson.

Can I take photos of my child during their class?

The Oasis permits the use of private photography during swimming lessons however we reserve the right to inspect, stop or delete any images/video material if we suspect inappropriate photography. No photography or video equipment including mobile phones permitted in the change facilities at any time.

Are all swim instructors qualified?

All swim instructors either hold their AUSTSWIM Teacher of Swimming, Water Safety or a Swim Australia teacher Certificate or Royal Life Saving.

Some instructors also hold additional qualifications, for example AUSTSWIM/Royal Life Saving teacher of infant aquatics, AUSTSIWM/Royal Life Saving teacher of competitive strokes AUSTSWIM/Royal Life Saving Teacher of All Abilities or Access and Inclusion and well as AUTSWIM/Royal Life Saving teacher of Adults.

How long will it take for my child to progress to the next level?

It is not uncommon for a child to remain in the same class for several sessions as all children learn different skills at different rates. It is important to ensure all skills are preformed competently before progressing to the next level.

May I request a specific teacher?

We endeavour to have the instructors assigned to each class as soon as possible. However as most of our instructors are university students, their university timetables change frequently, this may mean that the class appointed instructor might also change. We do help families if they request specifically a female or male teacher, please be flexible with your day and times.
