Centre update

Dear Members,

Thank you once again for your support of the Recreation Centre and all of the new procedures.

Unfortunately following the Victorian Government’s announcement yesterday regarding Level 3 restrictions for Regional Victoria, The Geelong College Recreation Centre will be ceasing operation effective Wednesday at 11.59pm until at least Thursday 17 September, with any reopen date to be confirmed.

Learn to swim

Our Learn-to-Swim program will finish after lessons on Wednesday 5 August, Learn-to-Swim students will be given a credit for the remainder of the program missed due to the closure.

We hope to start our Learn-to-Swim program in Term 4 and are planning for various scenarios. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available and we are able to confirm our plans.

If the term is still effected by the closure of the Centre in Term 4, payments made will be credited to the student.

Any correspondence required relating to our Learn-to-Swim can be directed ltsadmin@geelongcollege.vic.edu.au or by contacting the Centre on 5226 3129.

Swimming memberships

No lap swimming after Wednesday 5 August at 11.59pm.

• All current (3, 6 and 12 month) swimming memberships will remain suspended.
• A reminder that 10 visit passes don’t have an expiry date.

User Groups /Swim clubs

No user groups or swim club will be able to conduct their programs at the Centre during this closure period until further notice.

Intensive learn to swim and diving program  

At this stage we are unsure if we will be able to run our Learn-to-Swim/Diving program in the September holidays. Again, we are planning for various scenarios. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available and we are able to confirm our plans.

The Centre will provide up to date information on the College website and be SMS and email.

Stay safe and active in this uncertain period and we look forward to seeing you back at the Centre later in the year.
