SWIM Prep Information and Instructions

We are so excited that your child/children will be joining us for SWIM Prep this summer. During your child’s booked week we will meet Monday through Thursday from 4:00-5:15 at my house  - 4732 Quail Lane, Columbia, SC 29206. 


We use the carpool and drop off system in front of my house. Just pull into the circle driveway entering at the mailbox (rear of your vehicle on the Carter Hill end and the front of your vehicle headed towards Shady Lane) at 4:00 and pull all the way forward as far as you can towards the tree on the other end of the circle driveway. Our staff will pick up the children from your car to make it easy for you to drop off and pick up and MOST IMPORTANTLY to ease the traffic in front of the house. Say your goodbyes in the car (we can even get them out of their car seats for you and we will help them down the driveway to check in and a fun welcome activity. Please do not get out of your car to help us with the safety of all involved and to keep the flow of carpool moving. Just wait in line until we pull you forward and come to your car to get your child(ren) out. It’s important for us to do it this way to ensure safety and keep track of who is coming and going on our check in sheet and so that cars aren’t pulling out and around each other.

We will also will be double checking allergy info, the person picking up your child and cell phone numbers at drop off. Try to keep items to a minimum to limit the amount of things they need to keep up with it. 

We are going to have a GREAT time - don't forget to have your swimmer dress in his/her swim suit and coverup with flip flops or crocs and send a towel and googles if your child will be using googles at swim team or at camp.  Please apply sunscreen before you leave the house - it NEEDS time to dry on the child's body in order to be effective, otherwise it rubs right off into the water. Pick up after camp from the carpool line going in the same direction…enter at the mailbox and pull all the way forward to the tree. Please wait for us to bring your child to you.

What do I do if it's raining?
The weather in the spring and summer months in Columbia can change quickly. If it is lightly raining we will try to continue to swim. Please come to Swim Prep unless you hear from me. If we do decide to cancel I will let you know as soon as possible by email or text (preferable).  

Late Pick Ups?
Children not picked up promptly at 5:15 at the end of SWIM Team Prep will incur a late fee. We realize emergencies happen but we have private SWIM Lessons that are scheduled to follow each day so we need to make sure children are picked up on time. Please be sure that nanny’s, grandparents, babysitters etc know the correct pick up time, location and carpool rules. All late pick ups past 5:15 will incur an additional fee.

No Shows, Cancellations, Illnesses and Conflicts:
Unfortunately, we are unable to offer refunds or reschedules for any reason. SWIM Prep, Camps and lessons are all nontransferable. Please be sure to note the dates and times on your calendar. We can’t WAIT to see you!

Thanks so much for your help! We’re looking forward to another FUN and successful summer!
