Welcome to our April edition of Hydra customers information updates
The following information about Hydra courses at Inspire: Luton Sports Village. We want to ensure you are aware of any changes and important information. Including updates on the upcoming courses, 3 and 4.
All courses are continuously assessed which means that we can develop every child at their own pace. Once the teacher identifies that the standards have been met, parents/guardians will be informed to contact reception to arrange a move to the next level. Simple!
Unfortunately rising costs of things like utilities mean that we’ve had to make a small price increase (effective from course 3) as follows:
- Ducklings & Stages 1-7 new price for the 10 week block will be £51
- Stages 8-10 new price for the 10 week block will be £61
- Adults new price for the 10 week block will be £66
A new class will be introduced very soon, ‘Water Skills’ will be for those on stage 5 and above ideally for children that want to have a break from the regular LTS programme. This class will include activities such as, poolside diving, use of fins and snorkels, water safety skills, and general swim fitness. All skills ideal for family holiday preparation.
On week ten our community pool floor will at 0.86m between 16:00 and 18:00 to enable learners to practice basic water and safety skills, this will then aid with confidence in the water.
