What to Expect at Goldfish Swim School

We’ve been taking swim classes at Goldfish Swim School for some time now but I have to admit I wasn’t sure what to expect when we first started. It’s very similar to other swim lessons in some respects but Goldfish Swim School has a few more features that make the experience enjoyable for the family.

Here is what to bring with you and what to expect:

Let’s start with your bag. I’d suggest choosing a dedicated bag that you can attached a key chain to. You’ll get a key tag when you join Goldfish Swim School that you’ll use to sign your kids in with so you’ll want to make sure it stays with your swim class gear. Since I have kids with a decent amount of hair, I also keep hair ties on there. Finally, you want to make sure you have whatever clothing you need, either swimsuit or fresh outfit (remember that those still potty training will need reusable swim diapers).

Inside the bag, you’ll want a towel, goggles, and a wet bag (I used this tutorial to make mine a little while back). We’ve been attending class mid-morning so by the time we are ready to leave after class it’s about time for lunch, but otherwise you’ll want to pack a snack or keep a few dollars on hand to grab a something from the snack bar. I also keep a brush and bottle of leave-in conditioner in the bag to get the tangles out.

If you are missing any gear to stock your bag, make sure to check out the merchandise in the lobby.

When you get there, Make sure you stop by the front desk to sign yourself in. I suggest trying to get the kiddos to go to the restroom so they won’t need to go in the middle of their class time. You’ll want to make sure they have on the appropriate swim gear. Lastly, I try to go over what their coach said they needed to work on at the end of the last class. If you get there early enough (or if your kids classes aren’t at the same time) there are books, toys, and a chalk board to play with while you wait for the start of class.

Once the kids get called in to the pool area, you’ve got 25 minutes to watch your little fish through the glass, have a cup of coffee or snack all to yourself, flip through a magazine, or scroll through your phone with the free WiFi – you do you. Just know that Goldfish Swim School runs like clock work so keep your eye on the clock.

Your kids will be going through the curriculum for their lane and working on improving and learning new skills. You’ll get the occasional wave and smile through the glass.

Five minutes until the end of class, parents are invited in to discuss their child’s progress with the coaches. It’s a good time to clarify what they can improve on and how they are doing in class. Every so often they may receive a ribbon for demonstrating a skill or you’ll get a progress report on a card that shows the skills they have mastered or are working on.

Once class is over, you can take advantage of the shower area. With my girls blonde hair, I like to shampoo hair then and there to wash the chlorine out. Goldfish Swim School has tiki huts that serve as changing spaces and a swim suit dryer so you don’t have to deal with a dripping wet suit in the car. There are blow dryers which come in handy if you need to go somewhere or in the colder months especially.

Make sure you drop by the front desk on your way out for any information and so the kiddos can get their weekly prize. Every month is a different theme!

What else to expect? Goldfish Swim School has regular Family Swim Times, member appreciation events, and offers special programs for scouts of groups and birthday parties. Don’t forget fun special events like Trunk-or-Treat, which may vary for each location. Each month you’ll receive the the “Monthly Bubble” e-newsletter which will keep you up to date with activities for the month.

The winter months are a great time for swim lessons – it’s a great indoor activity and then get a head start on being ready for the pools next summer. Keep an eye out for specials coming up around the holidays since swim classes make a great experience gift.
