Swimming courses

Swimming courses on a leased lane

Orders for courses are already closed for new swimmers at this time. Only my existing clients can already subscribe to course dates for the course.

I offer „group swimming courses“ in a self-rented lane on Mondays at 7.15-8.00 am, on Tuesdays 7.00–8.00 am, on Thursdays at 7.15-8.00 am and on Fridays 7.00–8.00 am in the Šutka pool. Don't worry, they're not that bulk, there is usually a reasonable number of the swimmers. The courses are going to take place to the end of June 2019 regularly in working days.

You can sign up for a course at any time during the year if the capacity of the course is not yet full. I guarantee maximum 7 swimmers in the group! The price is from 200 CZK/training or 300 CZK/training and your entrance fee is included. The swimming courses on the rented lane are intended for adult swimmers or beginner swimmers who can already swim. My swimming courses on a leased lane are not intended for total non-swimmers. Non-swimmers can only use my individual lessons so far!

Swimming courses for beginner swimmers as well as advanced swimmers

On Monday, training is longer and we have lane number 2, so Monday's training is reserved for more advanced swimmers. On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays we have the lane number 1. For more recreational swimmers and beginners I recommend Thursday when the training is shorter and we also have the lane number 1. On Fridays I have a lot of freestyle swimmers, Friday is sportier. Tuesday is also intended for beginners, however at this moment I recommend it also for more advanced swimmers, because the training is longer. When you order a course, you can also take the current occupancy shown on the booking page into consideration. Here is a specific schedule of courses:

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday courses are separate units. Someone can go only on Tuesdays, somebody only on Fridays, someone on Tuesdays and Fridays, etc. Courses take place separately for each day of the week. Someone can go once a week (pay one course of their choice), someone twice a week (pay two courses), you can go 4 times a week (pay all four courses). Someone can choose dates based on when they have time off, then they pay separate terms across courses.

Number of swimmers in the group

I guarantee maximum number of 7 swimmers in the course group. The group is small, so you should swim well. There are usually from 3 to 5 swimmers in the swimming lane with regard to the average absences and average occupancy rates. I arrange the group according to orders received. Anyone can start swimming with us during the school year and can finish at any time. It all depends on the period you pay.

Aquacentre Šutka: according to the rental schedule

We swim in a separately rented 50m lane number 1 or 2 of the Aquaculture Šutka. Swimmers can enjoy the comfort of their own lane. Each course (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday) runs regularly during the whole school year of 1× a week on working days. I rent the track regularly on Tuesdays and Fridays from 07:00 to 08:00 and on Mondays and Thursdays from 7:15 to 8:00 until the end of June 2019. The length of training is 60 or 45  minutes. Swimming outside our dedicated reserved lane is for swimmers forbidden for safety reasons!

Tuesday and Thursday swimming course for beginner swimmers – focused on breaststroke and backstroke

I offer a Tuesday and Thursday swimming course for beginners (ie for less advanced swimmers). The course is focused mainly on breaststroke and backstroke teaching and their improvement. We also learn front crawl/backstroke legs here. Who wants to know front crawl, but still can not swim crawl and backstroke legs, so please sign here, first to beginners course! However, the basics of freestyle and butterfly waves may also be lectured. Tuesday and Thursday courses are paid independently.

The initial condition of participation in the common Tuesday or Thursday courses in the lane is that the swimmer is able to swim continuously at least 200 m even in depth without any break by any swimming method. Typically this course is designed for swimmers, who can not still swim 400 m in 12 minutes (it is in the conversion of 1.5 minutes per one 50m swimming pool or 2 km per 1 h) by any swimming method with breathing into the water, but they are able to swim at least 200 m. However, the course can also be visited by more advanced swimmers. I note that the course is not intended for a complete non-swimmers or beginner swimmers who can not swim continuously even 200 m. These non-swimmers or beginner swimmers can only use my individual training offers at this time.

Tuesday and Thursday course of breaststroke and backstroke, but we learn everything: breaststroke, backstroke and basics of front crawl

Tuesday and Thursday trainings are designed mainly for swimmers who want to learn how to breathe properly into the water while they swim breaststroke and they want to unlearn the style with "head above the water" and they want to swim faster. This course is such a preparation for the Monday and Friday course of freestyle. The teaching is focused mainly on the proper mastering of breaststroke techniques and teaching of freestyle and backstroke kick. However, the course can also be attended by advanced swimmers. The training could be adapted according to the current swimming level of the participants. Even a beginner can learn freestyle. So if there are be more people who want to learn freestyle, we could learn more freestlyle and backstroke.

Monday and friday swimming courses for advanced swimmers – focused on backstroke and freestyle

I offer a Monday and Friday swimming courses for advanced swimmers. The course is focused mainly on teaching of freestyle and backstroke and its improvement. However, breaststroke and butterfly techniques may also be included. Monday and Friday courses are paid independently.

The initial condition for participation in the common Monday and Friday courses in the lane is that swimmer was able to swim contiguously at least 400 m in 12 minutes (that is, in the conversion of 1.5 minutes one 50m pool or 2 km per 1 h) any swimming method with breathing into the water and must be accustomed to swim with other swimmers in the swimming lane. This is the so-called Cooper's Test swimming. Another my requirement to take part in these more advanced courses is to master crawl and backstroke legs of at least 50 m in length using a swimming board (ie, without the use of fins and hands) within 2.5 minutes. I need the group to be swimming balanced. Who does not make this limit or cannot swim crawl and backstroke legs, but swim at least 200 m, please sign up for a Tuesday or Thursday courses aimed at beginners.

Monday and Friday courses of freestyle and backstroke, but we learn everything: breaststroke, backstroke, front crawl and butterfly

Monday and Friday courses are intended mainly for the conditioning swimmers who want to learn front crawl or to improve in it. However, who wants to learn the front crawl, but still cannot swim crawl and backstroke legs, so first of all, do a beginner's course where we learn how to kick the legs! Courses are focused on fitness swimming, teaching and improvement of front crawl, but are not strong only on front crawl. The contents of trainings are usually all swimming methods (breaststroke, backstroke, front crawl and butterfly). Gradually we learn everything (we build so-called versatility) and improve everything: breaststroke, backstroke, front crawl and butterfly. However, the most preferred is front crawl in combination with a backstroke. Other swimming ways only support or allow us to teach this. Some swimming techniques are common, others are solved completely individually.

The price of training, admission fee is included in the rental price

Training courses are of course cheaper than for my individual trainings due to the higher number of participants in the training. Under the lease agreement, my swimmers can have free access to the pool if they meet the appropriate conditions (they pick up a chip from me in time, or show up with identification card on reception).

Swimmer pays me course fee for trainings of your choice. The resulting tuition price is based on your chosen and paid period. Either you choose individual workouts, then the training price is noticeably higher, or you pay for the whole period (e.g. a calendar month or a quarter), then the cost of the conversion per training is lower. This should be a continuous period. The period may start in the current month, with a period of at least one calendar month or at least one whole quarter (counted on months) for this incomplete period. This allows you to start with us at any time. At first, you always choose only the first one „trial training“, which is paid separately and whose price is lower. There are examples of price programs.

Replacement terms are not, not even an alternate

Replacement dates are not provided for courses in a leased track. Firstly, I cannot guarantee the substitute terms and I also calculate with certain average absences and I recommend you also to calculate with them. I usually do not fill vacancies with spare swimmers at the last minute. I Want you to swim well and a little smaller number of swimms suits me too. By default, I do not allow the transfer of training from one course to another (eg from Friday's course to Monday's course, etc.). If we exceptionally agree on the transfer, it must be mutually beneficial (eg to balance the number of swimmers), all provided that the swimmer does not use an identification card for entry, but goes to his own entrance (eg a multisport).

The cost of training is so low that it anticipates certain absences in advance. Due to the absence of other swimmers on the other hand, you will not usually swim in the full number of 7 swimmers, but you are likely to meet a little less (about 1/4 to 1/3). My goal is to keep the total number of swimmers in a reasonable number of about 3 to 5 people in the track (not having a course full of my guaranteed maximum of 7 swimmers in the track at any cost). Therefore, the absence, spare hours and trainings do not solve, and I do not do spare hours. It would be very administratively and time-consuming and I do not have a system of reservations at this time. So please do not ask me for shifts and replacement of course dates. I give this „luxury“ to swimmers in individual tuition, but for courses that are very cheap, they pay the course, I guarantee a maximum number of swimmers, no longer. Either take it or leave it! It Is similar, as when you buy a ticket to the theatre on a certain seat, and then you stay at home. It is your responsibility whether to come or not on an agreed date. This is your responsibility for what period you will pay. You can pay with me individual terms if the month or quarter is too long for you. Individual paid training is less likely to miss training.

If you would not be able to attend a paid course for a long time, you can use an agreed substitute after agreement with me. Only in exceptional cases (eg long-term illness) do I offer the possibility of a substitute (someone else instead of you) for courses. The substitute is usually then arranged for the rest of the subscription period. After the agreement of the substitute, it is necessary to return the identification card already issued. For a short period of time (eg because of a cold), the substitute is not suitable because the trainings are written on you and identification cards are exposed to your person.

Identification cards

When paying the course for a whole month or quarter, I can issue a separate identification card to clients, which will entitle them to a separate entry to the rented lane. Swimmers who will pay at least one full month of training at once can receive a card from me. The identification card is then presented at the reception desk of the pool and the chip is received at the reception desk. The swimmers pick it back at the reception when they leave the swimming pool. But if the swimmer does not have a valid card, or does not receive a card from me, then I pick a chip for him and I give him the chip at the reception. I give him the chip at least 15 minutes before the start of each training at the benches at the reception (at box office). I usually give a meeting 20 minutes before the training at the reception desk, with the fact that you wait for me - I will be there 20 to 15 minutes before the training (sometimes I have training before the training). If a training participant arrives at the reception later, the chip will no longer be received from me, and he would have to pay at his own expense to enter the space of Aquacentrum Šutka. So please don't be LATE!

The subsequent meeting in the pool will be at the time of the beginning of the course either traditionally under a round swim watch or at lane number 1 near swim watch. No one please go into the water before my instruction!

Under the rental agreement, the entrance to the payed part of the pool area is allow to participants in the training (course) not earlier than 15 minutes before the start of the course and their stay is limited to 1 hour 45 minutes. The client pays CZK 1 at the Shutka Aquacentre cash desk for each further minute. You will still have detailed details on the invoice.

Booking course training

Everyone is able to sign up for terms that suit him/her up to the capacity of the 7 swimmer. The dates must be paid in advance for proper booking according to the instructions on the advance invoice. I do not provide spare hours for lessons in course. The others business terms are almost identical to individual lessons only with difference that it is a training in more people and substitute is not possible (except for exceptional cases by an agreement). If I needed to cancel the training, I would either return the money back for the canceled term, or I would offer a substitute training.

Only paid dates are booked. I don't hold any dates in advance. Free dates over the next few weeks can be seen in free hours schedule. I recommend go swimming regularly every week. Unused hours are forfeited without refund.

Otherwise, a swimmer will be able to combine individual lessons and group training (ie an individual and a group swimming). However, I do not mix the training sessions and number of trainings. I take the Monday course separately, I take Tuesday course separately, I take the Thursday course separately and I take the Friday course separately. But you can order more courses (eg on Tuesdays and Thursdays, etc.). The business conditions are slightly different depending on the type of swimming lesson.

A note: I'm going to decide who I'm going to take, or I'm not going to take in a course, please. I want to have swimmers who are fine with whom I understand and who have a corresponding swimming level. Therefore, I recommend an individual lesson or the first separate lesson on the course. I can offer individual lessons at this time for non-swimmers and less advanced swimmers, where I can devote them the way they need it.
