Specific to children courses
Children learn at different rates and sometimes a swimming pool can be quite daunting to a child and we never force a child to enter a swimming pool. If they do not wish to come into the swimming pool during a lesson, they can sit on the side of the pool and watch. Alternatively, If a parent/guardian wishes to be in the pool to facilitate and help the child feel safe this is also fine.
However, it is not acceptable for a parent to demand money back if their child does not wish to go into the pool. We are there to help the child overcome the fear of the water and appreciate guardian support with this.
Withdrawal of cancellation rights and cancellation
As a consumer, as a general rule in the distance contract law, you have fourteen (14) days' right of withdrawal under the Distance and Home Sales Act (2005: 59). Therefore once you have a received a confirmation email from GoWaters Simskola you have 14 days right of withdrawal. If the consumer has already paid for the service within this timeframe they will receive a full refund.
After the 14 days right of withdrawal the consumer can only cancel the course if due to medical reasons in which a doctors certificate needs to be presented. If this happens when the course has started the consumer will be refunded for the lessons that remain after the date of the medical certificate.
Information on the prices that apply can be found in connection with the description of each course.
If you or the child misses one or more bathing occasions due to illness or the like, the course fee is not refunded. The instructor will mark this under the attendance on the course participants. Therefore, you do not need to report illness. However, we are grateful if you notify us of any absence. This is especially true if the absence refers to the first teaching opportunity or if the child ends prematurely.
GoWaters Simskola reserves the right to change the starting time for each teaching opportunity and which teachers should hold the teaching. We also reserve the right to combine courses or to set courses if necessary until the start of the course.

In order for students and teachers to concentrate on the teaching, we are grateful if both parents and the pupil / students enter the pool room at the earliest 5 minutes before the lesson begins and maintain a low sound level during the lessons. It makes it easier for us to maintain a good quality of swimming lessons. We have equipment marked ‘GoWaters’ that can be used within the lessons and the teacher will collect these at the beginning of the lesson. There may be other people's swimming accessories but these may only be used by the owners of these, please respect this.
Specific to children class, we kindly ask that parents stay in the background and only watch when the swimming lessons are in progress. Questions or comments can be asked to the instructor after the lesson or by contacting GoWaters Simskola representative, Chris Waters.
Otherwise, everyone should take off the shoes at the marked forest border or alternatively use shoe covers. Remember to bring a bathing suit, towel and water bottle. If the student / students have long hair, it is also good to have a tassel or bathing cap. Swimming goggles are only recommended for already knowledgeable students.
For everyone's enjoyment, all students should shower and wash before swimming. Students who have not showered may not participate in swimming lessons.
