If enrolled into the TOPH Leisure Swim School, your child never has to pay entry on the day/time of lessons. If the parent is only a spectator, no fees apply, however if the parent swims, then the normal adult entry rate applies.

If enrolled into the VacSwim program, both parent and child pay a daily entry of $2 per/student and $2 per/spectator on entry. If parent is swimming, the usual adult entry rate applies, and if additional children are swimming, the usual entry rate for their age will likewise apply.

Do I have to be in the water with my child?

All infant aquatic classes for children under 3-years of age require 1 adult participating in the lesson.
