I am working with the Sandra Schmirler Leisure Centre to try to set up a Homeschool Family Leisure Swim Time (hopefully once per month). What we've been able to come up with so far is that it would be on a weekday afternoon from 1:00pm-3:00pm, and that the cost would be their normal admission rates:
Child (2-12) $3.00
Youth (13-18) $4.50
Young Adult (19-24) $5.25
Adult (25-64) $7.00
Senior (65+) $5.25
included in your City of Regina Leisure Pass
In order to ensure that the pool is adequately staffed with lifeguards we need to let them know in advance when we will be having these leisure swim times (because we can be a rather large group at times ; ) Thus, I am sending this e-mail to inquire whether anyone would be interested in taking their kids for a Homeschool Leisure swim on Wednesday, October 18th from 1:00pm-3:00pm If you think you'd join us that day all you need to do right now is fire an email back at me (my email address is natali3 - please reply to that address rather than the ARCHE address that this email came from) letting me know that YES, you're interested as well as how many people would be swimming from your family. ie. my reply to myself would look like:
email to: natali3
email title: Oct 18 Swim
email body: YES! 3 people
Remember that ALL children under the age of 8 MUST be accompanied by an experienced swimmer over the age of 13, and each experienced swimmer can be responsible for NO MORE than three children under 8 years of age (unless some are wearing PFDs).
I will send an email to the Schmirler on October 11 letting them know our approximate numbers so that they can plan to have enough lifeguards on duty on the 18th. Please reply to me BEFORE the 11th if you are interested.
If things work out well this month I will plan another swim time in November and let you know that date, hopefully, a bit further in advance.
