- What services does Waterworks in Carlsbad provide?
Our Carlsbad location provides a variety of programs for all ages.
We have 2 swimming pools which are all heated year round. Waterworks
provides swim lessons, stroke clinic classes, water therapy, water
aerobics, swim teams, birthday parties and lap swimming. Whether your
goal is for water safety, learn to swim, stroke technique, speed or
efficiency then Waterworks is the place for you.
- What makes your program unique?
We offer the highest quality instruction available. Our students
are encouraged to enjoy the water while steadily progressing
in stroke development and technique refinement. Our instructors
are highly qualified and enjoy teaching children. They remain
calm and focused in every lesson. We realize our students are
here to learn so we don’t waste time on games or social
activities during swim lessons. We have a very high retention
rate. We guarantee you will be more than satisfied with your
lessons at Waterworks Aquatics or we will refund your money
on the first day if you are not. We also give each child 15
minutes of play time before or after the lesson.
You will see improvement! 99% of our students aged 3 years and
up can swim and most of these students aged 3 ½ and older
can swim 25 yards across the pool by summer end.
- How long is each swim lesson?
All of the lessons we offer are 20 minutes long. In our experience,
20-minute lessons work best for children. If lessons are longer
than 20 minutes, we would run the risk of losing the child’s
attention and not gaining the maximum benefit of the lesson.
After you watch the first lesson, you will see that this length
of time is right for your child. However, if you feel more
time is needed, we can schedule two lessons in a row to give
your child 40 minutes in the water.
- How many times per week should my child attend lessons?
The more lessons your child attends, the more he/she will
learn. If cost is an issue, we recommend that you spread the
lessons out over the summer/winter. We recommend at least
2 lessons per week. One week for a child is equivalent to
1 month for adults. They do forget what they have learned
if there is too much lag time between lessons. As a result,
the instructor will have to spend the first half of the lesson
re-teaching the same skills from the prior lesson.
- How long will it take for my child to learn how to swim?
Every child’s progress is different based on their age and skill
level. Your instructor will have a more concrete measure of how
long it may take to learn to swim. We offer private lessons for
one on one instruction and semi-private lessons where we pair
your child with another student of the similar age and skill
level. In addition because we are open 7 days a week we find
that the student may progress more quickly if they come for
lessons more than just once a week. Waterworks Aquatics mission
is to achieve water safety for every child by teaching all ages
how to swim.
- I am interested in baby swim lessons for my child, at what age do you start?
Waterworks Aquatics has a Parent and Me program starting at 3 months through 3 years of
age for Mom's and Dad's who would like to join in the fun. This program provides three
levels of instruction: beginner, intermediate and advanced in a group setting. Please
feel free to view the current parent and me schedule on our website.
- What is your policy for children who are not potty trained? Do they wear a diaper?
We enforce the double diaper policy. In this case we ask the child wear a
disposable diaper with a reusable diaper over top to reinforce the
prevention of an accident. In our retail center we do sell an assortment
of reusable diapers, swim suits, towels and goggles.
- Is Waterworks Aquatics available for private use or rental?
Absolutely, you can book your child’s Birthday Party or your Private
Party at our facility. We offer the use of any of our 4 pools that
are available. We will set up, clean up and run the games. You have
the choice of 2 reception rooms for food, cake and beverages which you may
decorate for the special event. Please contact the Birthday Party
Coordinator to set up your next event.
- What is your policy for cancelling lessons?
If you cancel your lessons within the designated time, we will
issue you a makeup lesson which can be scheduled any time other
than you regular class time.
